Garmin vívosmart 3 Brings Firstbeat Fitness and Stress Tracking to Everyone
Garmin International, inc. announced the vívosmart 3, the latest addition to their popular vivo series health and fitness trackers. The vívosmart 3 relies on Firstbeat technology to deliver high-end fitness monitoring tools, like automatic VO2max fitness level detection with a new interpretation, Fitness Age, accurate Calorie Counts, and for the first time All-day Stress tracking. The result is a stylish, ultra-slim device capable of delivering truly personalized insights for better health, fitness and performance.
“Health conscious customers are becoming more interested in the meaning behind their activity stats,” said Dan Bartel, Garmin vice president of worldwide sales. “As in, I like seeing the data, but how does it correlate to my overall wellbeing? With its new fitness and wellness monitoring tools that tell you things like fitness age and stress level, the vívosmart 3 is able to provide users with those answers, and that is a game changer for the activity tracker industry.”
Since 2013, Firstbeat’s automatic VO2max fitness level detection technology has been onboard Garmin’s high-end Forerunner & Fenix devices, giving users a valuable tool for viewing their current fitness level and monitoring changes as they occur. The vívosmart 3 brings this feature to Garmin’s lifestyle oriented vivo series for the first time and introduces Fitness Age, a new interpretation of your VO2max that places the feedback in a more relatable context.
