Daily Fitness and Stress Tracking
With help from Elevate™ wrist-based heart rate technology3, vívoactive 3 Music lets you monitor key aspects of your fitness and stress to show how your body responds under various circumstances. For example, it’s able to estimate your VO2 max and fitness age, important indicators of your physical fitness that can often improve over time with regular exercise. It also tracks your heart rate variability (HRV), which is used to calculate and track your stress level. vívoactive 3 Music can make you aware when physical or emotional sources cause your stress level to rise so you can find a way to relieve the pressure.
Life doesn’t have a pause button, so stay connected with your vívoactive 3 Music smartwatch while you’re playing hard or working out. Once paired with your compatible smartphone, you’ll be able to receive and even respond5 to text messages and see social media updates, emails and more right on your wrist.

Your finished activities will even automatically upload to our Garmin Connect™ online fitness community.
