Deal: Garmin Vivoactive 3 GPS smartwatch on sale for US$99
Smartwatches and other wearables have become an important device category for tech enthusiasts who can't afford to miss a notification or meticulously track their daily workout routine. Apart from the popular but expensive Apple Watch, the reputable American brand Garmin and its smartwatches in the Vivoactive series have become a worthy and more affordable option for fitness-focused buyers.
Thankfully, Buydig has a deal on the proven Garmin Vivoactive 3 and offers the smartwatch for a very enticing sales price of just US$99. This deal is for a new unit of the wearable in the sleek black and gunmetal color variant, which otherwise costs around US$135 on Amazon. With almost 30% in savings, this deal might be a good alternative for Garmin fans who don't like to shell out twice as much money for the newer and considerably more expensive Garmin Vivoactive 4.
Even though the Garmin Vivoactive 3 is not the newest smartwatch on the market, it still features a perfectly usable 1.2-inch display with a resolution of 240 by 240 pixels. The display is covered by Gorilla Glas, and in addition to regular fitness tracking functions like heart rate monitoring and accurate GPS tracking, the Garmin Vivoactive 3 also supports Garmin's contactless payment method called Garmin Pay. Battery life is also decent as the wearable lasts up to seven days in smartwatch mode and a respectable 12 hours in GPS mode according to the manufacturer. For less than US$100, the Garmin Vivoactive is undoubtedly a very solid and affordable smartwatch for budget-minded buyers.
