Gamin has announced its first LTE enabled smartwatch in the US. The watch will be self-dependent and will work on Verizon network letting you send messages, make calls, listen to music, make payments etc. with the need of being connected to the phones data pack.
As the name suggests that watch lets you enjoy music via Bluetooth headphones while tracking your workout like a regular smartwatch would do. Though the company has not revealed if the watch comes with internal storage, though the official listing says that you can store up to 500 songs on the watch.
The watch comes with a feature called as LiveTrack which allows you to share your live location with your family members on the go. It also comes with an emergency button which alerts pre-selected contacts when pressed down. Another feature that comes with new Vivoactive 3 Music is its incident alert feature which sends users’ location to the emergency contacts in case the watch detects an impact while walking, running or cycling.
The Garmin Vivoactive 3 Music comes in three different variants LTE (with music), Music (without LTE), and a standard one (without LTE or music). The watch offers a battery life of up to seven days in smartwatch mode, 13 hours on GPS mode, five hours on GPS with music.
The watch comes with a 1.2-inch circular display with Gorilla Glass 3 protection, and water resistance up to 5 ATM. It comes with support for 15 indoor and outdoor activities, heart rate monitoring, sleep tracking, and more. It runs on a custom Vivo Active Software and will be available in coming days. Garmin has not revealed the pricing yet.
