Garmin Vivoactive 3 Music First Look

Garmin Vivoactive 3 Music unveiled

See the pattern? For reference, the Forerunner 645 and the Vivoactive 3 are both excellent GPS-equipped smartwatches, but the former is smartwatch with more features for serious runners (instead of just athletes).

Garmin today announced the new vívoactive 3 Music, a Global Positioning System smartwatch with integrated music storage for up to 500 songs that will allow users enjoy their workout with their favourite songs.

Essentially an upgraded version of the standard Vivoactive 3 released at the back of previous year, the 3 Music will now let you store music on another of its watches as well as enjoy some offline syncing support from select music streaming services. Deezer is given as an example of one such service, but apparently support for this is coming soon rather than being available now. The Vivoactive 3 Music offers enough storage to hold about 500 songs, and you can connect Bluetooth headphones to the device to listen without your phone. Then you need to pair some sweat-proof headphones and head out. You can also transfer music directly from your computer to the watch. That's 50 bucks higher than the current price of the "standard" Vivoactive 3, and the only apparent upgrade is a music player compatible with songs downloaded from streaming services like iHeartRadio. The non-music vivoactive 3 watch has dropped to $250.

Interestingly, Garmin claims that the Vivoactive 3 Music will also retain the week-long battery life we experienced through the original model, though we suspect this will reduce slightly the more you hammer the tunes.

Still, if you're into athletic activities, it's hard to compete against this bad boy at $300.

It's safe for swimming and showering, Garmin says, and features a battery life of up to seven days in smartwatch mode or five hours in Global Positioning System with music mode.
