If you take a look around at a popular outdoor running loop or your local gym, you're bound to see plenty of wrists sporting wearable fitness gadgets whether their wearers are walking, running, hiking, or hitting the weight racks. For a whole host of practical, well-deserved reasons, wearable fitness trackers have taken off faster than carb-free, anti-fat diets or group fitness crazes. Small and light, wearables like Garmin's Vivofit 3 are designed to be worn comfortably all day with an easy-to-read screen that displays information like distance, overall steps, and calories burned without overburdening you with unnecessary information.
With its battery boasting a one-year lifespan, you can feel just fine about leaving your Vivofit 3 turned on all the time to track how you're sleeping and how often you're moving. This also facilitates automatically syncing to Garmin Connect, Garmin's training platform and app that stores your data so you can monitor your progress. If you have a job that requires you to sit for long stretches, you can program the Vivofit 3 to notify you when you've been sitting longer than is recommended for overall health, as well as set daily goals for overall steps and distance, helping keep you accountable for getting enough exercise and letting you know when you don't hit your marks.
Whether you're working to maintain a rigorous training schedule or are looking to start one, the Vivofit 3 comes with Move IQ built-in, intuiting your change in activity so you don't have to risk tripping mid-run while toggling through separate screens to switch activity modes. If you want to also keep track of your heart rate, you can do so by wearing Garmin's heart rate monitor and syncing it with your Vivofit during activities.
