How's It Working Out?: Garmin vivoactive 3, Part 2

November 30, 2018


There are a few things I didn't get to mention yesterday that really make me enjoy the Garmin vivoactive 3. It really blurs the lines between simple tracker, bike computer, and smart watch in a nice form factor. 


With it, I do not need to always reach for my Wahoo Bolt when I head outside or hop on the bike. I like to record lots of activities, as I like to share activities that reflect a well-rounded positive active lifestyle. I think it's good to show friends that you rode to the post office or walked to get coffee. It's good to show that you ran the park on a rainy day. 


Speaking of rain, the vivoactive 3 is waterproof up to 50 m or so. I keep it on in the shower, and I really don't have to think twice about it. It seems sturdy, but it is not bulky like many of the other Garmin or Suunto watches are. I literally forget it is even on my wrist until it buzzes and alerts me with a new notification.
