Garmin today announced vivofit 3, an everyday activity tracker with an amazing one-year battery life, water resistance to 50 meters, and Garmin Move IQ for automatic activity detection. The $100 female sized fitness band is designed for 24/7 wearability, and can be personalized with an array of colorful interchangeable accessory bands, including styles by Jonathan Adler.
With Move IQ, a new feature that continuously monitors for periods of sustained activity, the vívofit 3 automatically recognizes walking, running, biking, swimming and elliptical training. By accessing Garmin Connect, a free online fitness community that the vívofit 3 automatically syncs to throughout the day, users will be able to analyze a complete picture of daily activities in a convenient Timeline view. They can also track sleep patterns and trends, join online challenges to compete against friends and earn virtual badges.
Garmin Connect gets to know users and delivers meaningful insights based off their data to help them reach health and wellness goals. Smart wellness insights provide cues to help users reach personalized daily goals set by vívofit 3 based on their current activity levels, shout-outs when milestones have been met and relevant healthy tips from experts. Insights also show users how they are doing in comparison to people like them for extra motivation.
The vívofit 3 features a backlit display that shows steps, calories, distance, intensity minutes and time of day. Its move bar with audible alert reminds users when they have been inactive too long. A couple minutes of activity will reset the move bar, keeping users motivated to stay continuously active during their day which can help counter the health risks associated with a sedentary lifestyle. Water resistant to 50 meters and featuring a user replaceable battery that lasts up to one year, users rarely ever have to take off their vívofit 3.
