MWC 2016: Stylish Garmin Vivofit 3 and Vivoactive HR fitness tracking wearables
Garmin has always been known for no nonsense fitness tracking equipment and gadgets, but making a transition to the more stylish ones is good news for buyers. At the ongoing Mobile World Congress 2016 Garmin revealed its new age wearables for fitness and health tracking. It was good to see the refreshing new wearables in a good looking avatar. So let’s have a more insight on Garmin Vivofit 3 and Vivoactive HR.
Garmin Vivofit 3
One of the best looking fitness tracker you’ll ever own, the Garmin Vivofit 3 is definitely made for the new generation. The tracker does everything from sleep tracking, activity tracking, counting calories, running, biking or any other training regime. Vivofit 3 is water-resistant to a depth of 50 meters which means you can keep track of all your swimming goals too.
The tracker measures 10 mm x 10 mm and has a 64×64 pixel resolution display. Good news is you’ll be saved from charging the coin cell battery as it goes on for 1 year without needing replacement.
You can buy the regular Vivofit 3 fitness tracker which comes in 3 colors and is priced at $99.99. Or go for the stylish Gabrielle collection which would definitely make you a hipster of the town. The Gabrielle collection will come at a price tag of $119.99. You can also buy the Jonathan Adler + Garmin collection of interchangeable accessory bands for the vívofit family of activity trackers.
Garmin Vivoactive HR
The second fitness and health tracker introduced by Garmin at MWC 2016 is the Vivoactive HR. This one is focused on heart rate monitoring for a more precise tracking of beats per minute during training or intense physical activity. Garmin Vivoactive HR connects with your smartphone to flash notifications and is GPS-enabled for activities like hiking or cycling.
The wearable comes with a sunlight-readable, high-resolution 148×205 pixels color touchscreen and plenty of watch face designs for customization. It has 8 days of battery life in watch/activity training mode and 13 hours in GPS mode.
You can call it a health tracker with smartwatch functions and with a price tag of $249.99 this wearable will be a serious option for adventure seekers. It will only come in black color option which is surprising and Garmin should have gone for more color options.
