We saw a leaked photo of the new Garmin Vivoactive 3 earlier this month, the device is now official. The new Garmin Vivoactive 3 comes with Garmin Pay for contactless payments and it supports Visa and MasterCard.
The Garmin Vivoactive 3 will come in a range of different colors and prices for the device will start at $299.99.
“Anyone who is out and about being active can relate to the struggle of where to stash a credit card or cash, and has had to forgo a post-workout snack or coffee as a result,” said Dan Bartel, Garmin vice president of worldwide sales. “We’re solving that dilemma with Garmin Pay, an exciting feature on the new vívoactive 3. Use it pretty much wherever contactless payments are accepted, and give yourself one less thing to remember when you’re leaving the house.” e
Smart, sturdy and stylish, the vívoactive 3 features stainless steel metal details and an always-on high-resolution Garmin ChromaTM display for great readability in all lighting conditions. The vívoactive 3 also introduces Side SwipeTM, a control which makes for quick scrolling and swift navigation of menus, widgets and stats. And because some users will prefer to scroll with their thumb and others with their index fingers, the vívoactive 3 features an ambidextrous design, allowing it to be worn in whichever orientation is most comfortable. Like all of Garmin’s wearables, the vívoactive 3 is safe for swimming and showering3 and has a battery life of up to 7 days in smartwatch mode and 13 hours in GPS mode
