The Vivoactive 3 Music is a simple, lightweight smartwatch with very basic pool swim, bike, and run functions (no power for cycling, but is oddly compatible with Stryd for running power). The Vivoactive also reads elevation gain, but accuracy is surprisingly inconsistent. Despite the “music” designation, the Vivoactive 3 isn’t compatible with Spotify as of this writing, but users can download music from their computers via Garmin Express and a USB cable. Though it has a very, very tiny touchscreen, users can navigate data on different pages well.
