Garmin showcases, in a new ad, its vívoactive 3 music GPS smartwatch for the active lifestyle, an ultra-thin, lightweight smartwatch with built-in sports apps, aimed to help people keep a healthy balance between work and life.
The 15-second commercial shows a young woman getting ready to start a pilates class. As she gets down on her mattress, she does the worm dance move and an onscreen line highlights that “Music makes it better”.
With a sunlight-readable, high-resolution color touchscreen, the vívoactive GPS smartwatch features built-in sports apps, like GPS-enabled running, biking and golfing plus swimming and activity tracking, which let you view your stats even when away from your phone. Paired with the phone, it gently vibrates and displays alerts for incoming calls, texts, emails and calendar items plus notifications from social media and other mobile apps. vívoactive also lets you control the tunes on your music player, locate your phone and let your friends and family track your activities in real time with Live Track. You can also remotely control your VIRB Elite action camera.
Battery charge lasts through all your activities with up to 3 weeks in watch/activity tracking mode or up to 10 hours using GPS, according to the brand, which also informs that you can customize your smartwatch with free watch face designs, widgets and apps from its Connect IQ store.
The vívoactive smartwatch is available for purchase on Garmin’s website for $219.99 USD.
