With its streamlined case and classic timepiece aesthetic, the vívomove 3S doesn’t look like your average smartwatch. But, below its analogue hands lies a sophisticated touchscreen and all the tech you’d expect from Garmin. The latest generation Elevate optical heart rate monitor gets pulse information straight off your wrist and uses it to track calories, stress level, fitness age, and more. Internal accelerometers take cues from your movements, from waking the discreet display as you raise your arm, to tracking your waking and resting movements. By pairing with a smartphone running the free Garmin Connect app you open the watch’s true potential. Garmin Connect lets you receive smart notifications, receive weather data, review your calendar and control phone apps; like music players. Connect will even use the power of your phone’s GPS to tell you more about how you train. Share with Garmin’s online community, join challenges, mark milestones, and get encouragement. Keep an eye on your stress levels throughout the day by monitoring your heart rate variability. Noting increased stress helps you identify what may have led to the spike, helping you find ways to remove that stress trigger. When stress levels are high, a relaxation timer will walk you through steps to bring more calm to your day.
