Garmin vivoactive 3 is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 885.
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 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 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 3 out of 5 by from Comfortable and light weight This is my first garmin smart watch and I like the size and weight of the unit. For fitness tracking it seems to have everything one would need. However to be called a smart watch to me is a bit of a stretch. I have difficulty getting my calendar to sync without opening the app. The battery life is awesome and I read that is due in part to the display design. The colors are not vivid as in advertisemts but it is certainly visible in sun and ambient light. Most disappointing to me is the inability to quick reply to text messages if using an iPhone. All in all I like the unit but feel it doesn’t compete with other smart watches on the market.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Contemporary Functional Fitness I've had my Vivoactive 3 for about a month now after having two of the VivoactiveHR's. Personally, I preferred the ruggedness of the HR and control buttons better that the full touch screen of the 3. The 3 works just fine, it's just feels a bit more delicate than the HR, mostly due to the thinner 20mm band and thinner watch body. That being said, the 3 has performed flawlessly through all types of cycling and Crossfit activities. While I find all Garmin devices battery's to be superior, I have to charge the 3 twice per week versus the HR's once per week. All the sync functionality is solid as expected and so for the money it's a great device!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good features and design - nice if they all worked I had a Vivoactive HR and then upgraded to the 3 for design and comfort reasons. I had also hoped certain aspects worked a bit better. I love the feature set and phone app for the watch. I wish the stair climbing was accurate - it seems to catch about 25% of my climbing our 21 step stairway. When biking, the heart rate on the watch doesn't start to go up to match my chest strap heart rate on my Garmin 1000 until about 20 minutes into the ride. The 1000 will say my HR is 150 and the 3 will show 110. After about 20 minutes the 3 will get reasonably close to the 1000. I very much like the software update to the sleep tracking.
