by Vishal Toshiwal 0

Garmin has launched not only one but two fitness trackers; the first one is the Vivoactive HR, a successor to the Vivoactive smartband launched last year. The second fitness tracker that we are talking about is the Vivofit 3; it’s the latest iteration in the Vivofit fitness band series. Fancier than ever, the new sleek activity tracker features one-year battery life, thanks to the tiny backlit display it comes with.

The Vivofit 3 boasts water resistant feature up to 50 meters and offers swappable accessory bands, which will be available in a number of colors and styles so that you can dress for the occasion. The new band adds Move IQ auto activity detection, what it means is that you don’t have to worry about tracking those forgetful exercises anymore, as you’ll get automatic credits for that. Every activity counts to your fitness, right!

The small backlit display on this tracker now showcases your daily progress With Garmin Move bar. You’ll also see calories burned, distance travelled, intensity minutes and the clock. It’s traditionally not a smartwatch but offers certain features of it. The tracker is also capable of giving audible inactivity reminder alerts, to keep you going. It is priced at $99 while you’ll have to spend few extra bucks if you want additional stylish bands. Though, you’ll have to wait for them a lot, as they ship sometime in Q2 2016
