This upcoming wearable will log sleep, also providing adaptive step tracking, data on the resting heart rate over seven days, and more. Garmin's Elevate optical rate sensor is expected to be on board, next to a built-in GPS.
The popular Vivosmart HR+ is expected to get a successor soon. Dubbed Vivosmart 3, this upcoming fitness tracker is not supposed to offer any major new feature, improving the existing ones instead.
The images that recently surfaced online show a device with a more textured strap similar to the one employed by the Vivofit 3 fitness tracker. However, the Garmin Vivosmart 3 shown in these leaked images also uses a watch-style clasp identical to the one used by the Vivosmart HR+. This wearable is also expected to feature Garmin's proprietary Elevate optical heart rate sensor, next to a built-in GPS.
Wareable writes that the Vivosmart 3 "will log sleep, offer adaptive step tracking and give you the ability to view resting heart rate over a seven day period." For now, everything about it should be taken with a grain of salt, but we will get back to the Garmin Vivosmart 3 as soon as we find anything new, so stay tuned.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
