Friday, September 1st, 2017 | Gadgets

The Vivoactive series is one of the bestsellers at Garmin, now the company has presented the latest model at the Ifa 2017 in Berlin. The Vivoactive 3 with its round design differs significantly from the quadrangular predecessors, all a bit reminiscent of Apple Watch. The newly designed case offers a special feature: the operation is via a side-mounted, slightly corrugated touchpad – Garmin calls it Side Swipe – and a single button as well as a touch screen.

The Vivoactive 3 is the first sports watch from Garmin to pay via NFC. In the German press release, however, it is only the fact that the wearable is "equipped" – when the process can actually be used in Germany, the manufacturer does not yet say. Basically, however, it does not matter anyway: Before German excursion restaurants or kiosks use NFC, they would have to accept half-way full-coverage EC cards – as long as runners and cyclists can take cash with them.
The Vivoactive 3 can record the data of 15 sports with a preinstalled app. In addition, the device measures the heart rate as well as the stress level around the clock – this can only be the Vivosmart 3 from Garmin, very meaningful are the values ​​according to our test. It is quite handy for runners and cyclists, however, that the VO2max is also appreciated, which has hitherto been reserved for the more expensive Garmin sports watches, such as the Forerunner 935. For this purpose, the watch supports practically all wearables of the manufacturer as well as displaying notifications from the smartphone Via Bluetooth LE, measures steps and sleep. The device does not have a barometric altimeter.

The recharge time is eight days or 13 hours with running GPS recording. The Vivoactive 3 will be available in the course of September 2017. The price is around 330 euros for a model with silver bezel and at 360 euros for a model with black bezel. Garmin has not given any details about the water resistance.
vivo Sport
Almost the functional scope of a sports watch, but in the slim and only 11 millimeter thick housing of a fitnesstrackers offers the Vivosport. The device supports the recording of GPS routes and the heart rate on the wrist. The preinstalled apps allow you to record running, cycling, strength and repeat tracings – the Garmin Connect portal can also be used to assign the data to other sports, so the restriction on the Vivosport does not really matter.

In addition, the device gives an estimate of the VO2max value, determines the stress level, counts steps and floors, and measures sleep. Operation is via a color touch screen. Garmin gives the battery time up to seven days in everyday life or up to 8 hours in GPS mode. The price is 200 euros, the publication is to take place in September 2017.
Vivomove HR
As a third novelty, Garmin presented the Vivomove HR at the Ifa 2017. This is a hybrid of a classic-looking wristwatch with real hands that show the time on a monochrome OLED touch screen. The Wearable does not have a GPS module, so the pre-installed apps for running, biking, power and repetition can not record route data.

First and foremost, the Vivomove HR offers the performance of a fitnesstracker: it measures steps, stress and sleep as well as the pulse around the clock. Also the VO2max value estimates the device. It is waterproof up to 50 meters depth and can only show the time with a battery charge for 14 days or record the movement data of the user for five days.
The Vivomove HR is to be launched in September 2017 in several color variants. The price with a plastic sports strap is 200 euros, with a leather bracelet 100 euros more are due.
