Combining the look of a traditional analog watch face with the technology of a digital smartwatch, the vivomove 3S Hybrid Smartwatch from Garmin marries two worlds of design without sacrificing essential functionality. The vivomove 3S has a hidden touchscreen display that only appears when you need it. Once activated, the analog hands dynamically move out of the way.
The smartwatch features of the vivomove 3S incorporate activity, fitness, and health tracking 24/7. Activity tracking logs the basics of daily steps, floors climbed, and more. Fitness tracking utilizes a variety of activity profiles for multiple workouts and exercises, such as running, cycling, yoga, strength training, cardio, pool swimming, and more. You can even connect it to your smartphone and utilize GPS to track outdoor walks and runs.
The vivomove 3S’s health monitoring utilizes user-input, built-in Pulse Ox and heart rate monitors to keep tabs of your overall stress, heart rate, energy levels, hydration, and quality of sleep. If you’re overstressed, the smartwatch will prompt you to perform a short breathing exercise. All of these functions and more are at your fingertips, and presented in a sleek and stylish watch with a durable silicone band.
Receive emails, texts, and alerts on the hidden touchscreen when paired with your Bluetooth-compatible smartphone.
Quickly and easily view your plans for the day with a dedicated calendar widget.
The vivomove 3S tracks your heart rate while at rest and during workouts. At rest, constant samples of your heart rate are recorded in order to alert you if your heart rate stays elevated for a certain period of time. When working out, the heart rate monitor helps you gauge how much effort you gave to each exercise.
After a night’s sleep, the vivomove 3S provides you with a detailed breakdown of your light, deep, and REM sleep stages, as well as your Pulse Ox readings.
The watch can track your energy levels throughout the day, so you’ll know the best times for activity and rest.
Staying hydrated is essential, and the vivomove 3S will remind you to drink some water based on your manually-entered water intake logs.
Menstrual Cycle Tracking
The vivomove 3S lets you track your month-to-month menstrual cycle in order to stay on top of important changes that you can relay in your next doctor’s visit.
Garmin Connect App
The vivomove 3S is compatible with the Garmin Connect app for iOS and Android devices. With Garmin Connect, you can interact with an online community to compete in challenges, share the goals you reach on social media, and encourage others in their efforts to get fit and stay healthy.
