Images revealing the design of the new Garmin Vivoactive 3 fitness tracker and watch have been published this week providing a glimpse at what you can expect from the next generation Vivoactive wearable to be launched by Garmin.
As you can see from the leaked photographs, the Garmin Vivoactive 3 will be the first Vivoactive wearable from the company sporting a circular display and offering more smartwatch style functionality such as the ability to respond to text messages and receive notifications directly from your smartphone.
In terms of hardware, it doesn’t seem that Garmin will stray that far from a conventional fitness-centric smartwatch either, with the usual rubber silicon strap flanking an otherwise classic-looking, but thick, body. Underneath that is the usual heart rate sensor that is a staple for any self-respecting fitness tracker. Unseen but expected, or wished for at least, is an altimeter that will help uses count steps taken up stairs in addition to the usual walk.
The Vivoactive is expected to be completely waterproof and equipped with an optical heart rate sensor as well as the ability to track the number of steps, stair climbing statistics and more.
Unfortunately, no information on pricing or worldwide availability has been released as yet by Garmin or leaked, but as soon as information comes to light, we will keep you updated as always.
