This is just a small list as listing all the features options would take up too much time in this section. Check out our full review article here if you would like to know everything possible with the vivoactive 3. Just as an honourable mention for significant features - my personal favourite is the ‘Find My Phone’ as I consistently put my phone down at home for one second and have completely lost it.

Garmin is definitely trying to make their watches appeal more universally with their new smartwatch generations. This just goes to show how much the market is growing for fitness watches and the need to satisfy the entire market. Overall the vivoactive 3, in my opinion, is still one of the best smartwatches to come out of 2017 and showed the Garmin was willing to begin to push beyond just fitness features into contactless payments and other everyday convenient apps.
