Garmin vivoactive 3 Smartwatch - Black/Gunmetal is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 1133.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice big screen! I’ve had this Garmin for about three weeks, after my Viviactive HR died while I was swimming. I like the big screen, it’s easy to read but the battery life is poor, I have to charge it about every 4 days and when I’m using the GPS a little bit sooner than that. The vibration is strong, but the scroll tool on the left is constantly going off and moving the screen around, something I plan on adjusting in the future. My twin sister got the same one after she liked mine, the white and rose gold looks very professional, but I have the black and silver and I like mine as well. Overall I like it a lot, just wish the battery life was a little longer!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointing I bought this on Black Friday and received it yesterday after waiting more than 6 months to save up for it. Such a disappointment--the screen is not well calibrated, causing issues trying to select activities, or even get the screen to respond; the alarm did not go off this morning; the type on the screen is far too large for the space, which weirdly cuts off messages, and there doesn't appear to be a way to correct that setting; and the set up for favorite activities is not intuitive, not that I can start them anyway since I can't click on that part of the screen. Very disappointing since my mother and fiance both love their Garmin watches.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing watch with tons of features! My wife bought me this watch because after a few years of minimal exercise and workouts i finally started pushing again to try and reclaim some of my health. I've got MS and CLL (Chronic Lymphatic Leukemia) Fatigue had me in a cage for years but I've broke out and this watch was the key. I've had it a few days now and already logged close to 20 miles of walking in severe heat and humidity (Which is HUGE for someone with MS and very low heat tolerance) The watch keeps me motivated and lets me track my progress. I can honestly say because of this watch, my determination is higher than it has ever been and I'm feeling better than i have in years!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Loving so far As a recovering Fitbit user, I’m loving all the features of this watch: the round watch face, long battery life, gps, pedometer heart rate and sleep logging. So much data. Can’t wait to take this on my first run. How wonderful to have a watch that gives me real-time running data. I’m not sure how accurate the information is, at Orangetheory I burned 520 calories but my watch said 430, that said, it might have been my strength training setting and that workout is more cardio than anything. I’m still figuring it all out. Oh, and I love the white band and rose gold face. I normally choose borkng, go with everything black. Glad I didn’t.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Mixed review I love the map created of where I walk around parks using the GPS. I like the large diverse clock faces available. I have added free a compass widget which I like a lot. I don't love how many times something has gone wrong and I have had to go back to the default settings and make all of my changes again. I have walked on the beach. It has reported I was at -159 ft. (I doubt it, but don't really care.) Also floors climbed can be almost 50% off. But you can add an activity to correct the data, if you really care. Getting extra info about what is available and what can be done is something I can't find. Manual is very simplistic.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Inaccurate data Purchased due to pretty good reviews and features like GPS, sleep data and cadence tracking that my Polar 360 doesn’t have. I’m pretty disappointed, however, that most of the data I receive is not accurate. I have compared with a metronome to verify cadence, and when my boyfriend and I run together his Garmin and mine measure completely different distances and speed. My Polar knew when I was sleeping but my Garmin has no idea and the data is skewed depending on when your manual “bedtime setting” has been programmed in the app. There are also periods of time during the night that are “unreadable” even though I am wearing my watch properly.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It is amazing! i love my Garmin watch. It is so lightweight I forget I have it on. I am using it to count the laps I swim and the time it takes to swim. I used to use a Fitbit and the count wasn't all that accurate so it was frustrating. I sure wish Garmin would come up with a Widget for Water Aerobics! It's not walking, it's not swimming, so it's hard to find the right widget to use while doing it so I can figure out what I accomplished in the class. One last thing, not sure why you have to tell it what activity you are doing? You actually have to find a matching widget and then start/stop the activity. That's a bit frustrating. Overall I like it though!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice but too BIG! I would have given the watch a 5 Star rating except for 3 things. It’s too big, even at 43mm, which is one of the smaller smart watches. There’s a pretty long learning curve. And, the apps and widgets are to as customizable as they claim. Battery life is good and the watch is packed with features. I also bought a replacement band that is more rugged looking that the rubber one that came on the watch. And, I would like to shake the hand of whoever invented the quick release pins in the watch bands of today. This was brilliant. The bottom line is,yes, this is a really, really good smart watch and I would recommend it to others.

Would this be a good option for hiking?

Asked by: Tony G
Hi there. Thanks for your question. This is a great beginner watch for hiking. The long battery life compared to other smart watches enables you to GPS record for 10 or so hours straight, meaning you can get in some really long day hikes while tracking your GPS track.
