Garmin announces updates to Vivo activity trackers


Garmin has announced updates to its line of Vivo activity trackers in the form of the  Vivofit 3 wristband and the Vivoactive HR.

The Vivofit 3 wristband features a backlit display, is waterproof up to 50 meters, and automatically tracks workouts such as running, biking, swimming, and elliptical training. It’s also capable of tracking intensity levels during workouts. There are two styles of Vivofit 3 available: the Style collection, available with a black or white quilted band, a periwinkle braided band, and a camo band; and a range designed by Jonathan Adler, which boasts colours like purple geometrics, gray and green concentric circles, and a blue Goyard-like chevron pattern.

Meanwhile, the Vivoactive HR features optical heart rate sensors, elevation sensors, native tracking for more sports, and can record intensity minutes during workouts. Like the previous watch, it offers all-day activity tracking, and pairs with your smartphone over Bluetooth to display notifications. One improvement is its GPS battery life, which is up to 13 hours.

The Vivofit 3 will be released in the second quarter of the year, while the Vivoactive HR will be released in spring. Both activity trackers are expected to make an appearance at Mobile World Congress next week.
