Garmin Vivosmart 3 Review

This fitness tracker manufactured by Garmin offers a minimalistic, elegant design and the manufacturer claims that it’s 4mm thinner than their other models. However, its design is not something that has drawn us to this fitness tracker. The fact that this fitness tracker is waterproof and safe to use while in the swimming pool makes it a great choice for swimmers looking to measure their daily activity. The heart rate monitor includes provides accurate readings and the step counter is as good as they come, with slight inconsistencies.

Pros / What Customers Like:

  • The rubber band is amazingly comfortable when worn for a long time.
  • Garmin Vivosmart 3 is waterproof and you can safely wear it in the shower or in your swimming pool.
  • It comes with a heart rate monitor and its readings are quite precise because it utilizes a different technology than other monitors.
  • There are a lot of features which can appeal to different sports people and everyone will be able to find something new and useful.

Cons / What Customers Don't Like:

  • The design is not so eye-catching and it may deter users looking to wear it as a watch.
  • The battery life is quite average as it can last up to five days on a single charge.
  • Customers have complained about the lack of a GPS tracker.


This is definitely one of the best fitness trackers around for the price it offers but certain improvements should have been undertaken about its design and its battery life. The design is definitely not the most important feature but a lot of people are looking to wear it on a daily basis. Additionally, this tracker is a great choice for swimmers and for weight lifters because of certain features. Go for it if you are ready to pay the price. The price tag is realistic but some things should be improved to justify it.
