Garmin has released another one of their fantastic fitness trackers in the form of the Garmin vívoactive 3. Here is our review on the fitness tracker.

Design of the Garmin vívoactive 3

Unlike the previous model, the recent one has a more streamlined design that looks elegant and classy. It comes with stainless steel bezels and Gorilla Glass on the screen for protection. Basically put, this is a design that looks good with any kind of attire; both formal and informal. The fitness tracker can be bought in three different colours; Black with Stainless Hardware, Black with Slate Hardware, and White with Stainless Hardware. Furthermore, the thin design is much easier on the hand and is more comfortable than the majority of the competition.

As mentioned, the device comes with Gorilla glass on the display and features water resistance to a maximum depth of fifty meters. However, the heart sensor will not work when in water and the fitness tracker is authorized for swimming pools, not open waters.
