Battery is a fail
I bought this Garmin Vivoactive 3 8 months ago and I called support for battery issues twice already, which didn't help much since the wait time is too long I just opted on charging the watch every other day. I have reset the watch back to default configuration and the battery still didn't improve. Now on its 8th month the battery won't even last 18 hours. Data wise, I could say the data it produce is at par with other wearables in the market. I have been a wearable user for more than a decade now and this is the worst smartch watch that I have ever used and bought.

Love it! An accountability partner, right on my wrist. It gives me atta boys when I deserve it, and pushes me to move when I need it.

Very disappointed
It never stays charged or connected to my phone. I really wish I can upgrade and didn’t miss that chance already due to the fact it was an expecive purchase.

everything is great
my only problem is there should be a default digital clock instead of analog becuase it takes time to figure out the time and most importantly, make it faster to get to stopwatch and timer

Inaccurate data results
I bought this a few weeks ago and it is as if I bought a cheap toy that just uses any movement as steps.
While I was a passenger sitting in a car it was recording that I was climbing steps.
It says I’m asleep, when I’m awake watching TV.
I’ve had a similar device to this one previously and it was much more accurate. It didn’t cost me nearly as much as the Garman Vivo active 3. I wish I could return it for a refund! It’s junk

Battery issue.
Hi I am on my third vivoactive 3 because of battery issues. I got the replacement, which is new, I charged it to 100% last night and just looked down at my watch and it was dead so I am charging it now. (Today is Tuesday so it was less than 24 hrs gay is died from a full change. I really just want a replacement of a different watch since I’m on my third.

The first Garmin product I hate
I bought this Garmin 3 weeks ago and while I thought it was kinks, I’m not sure this product is suitable for purpose, the connectivity to the phone constantly drops out- 15-20 times a day at a minimum, the battery life is maybe 5 days MAX.
It buzzes throughout the night and the lights come on even if on DND. I find the design lovely and the ability to change the face wonderful. But I am struggling to Love this watch as i can’t even wear it to bed anymore as it is disrupting my sleep . I wish this was as good as previous products, I feel there. May be a fault with this watch however when attempting to return to the stores they said it was normal. Unfortunately after outlaying so much money I can’t afford to just buy another watch. Disappointing. Would not recommend.

Great smart watch
Recently purchased online after reading a lot of good reviews. Easy to use, settings were easy to change to suit my needs. Reason I purchased was to track steps, monitor heart rate and monitor activity. So far so good. Two staff members at my work each have one and love theirs also.

So easy to use!
I am a pretty active person and when I workout I sweat. The vivoactive 3 fits comfortably without squeezing or sliding on my sweaty arm. The workout options are quick and easy to use. I was concerned about having to use the push button to start/stop activities, but I haven't had an activity prematurely stop yet. I like that can customize the watch face - making it just a little more like me than an out of the box version that lots of people have. Other things I love: GPS, move reminders, how easily it paired with my android phone, easy charging, and tons of little things. Normal daily use (no activities or GPS use) will wear the battery down to the mid eighty percentage. Charging is pretty quick... A daily dose of thirty minutes and it is back to the high nineties if not one hundred percent.
