Daily Fitness and Stress Tracking

With help from Elevate™ wrist-based heart rate technology², vívoactive 3 lets you monitor key aspects of your fitness and stress to show how your body responds under various circumstances.

For example, it’s able to estimate your VO2 max and fitness age — 2 indicators of physical fitness that can often improve over time with regular exercise. It also tracks your heart rate variability (HRV), which is used to calculate and track your stress level. vívoactive 3 can make you aware when physical or emotional sources cause your stress level to rise so you can find a way to relieve the pressure.

Battery Life

The rechargeable battery can lasts up to 13 hours in GPS mode, and up to 7 days for Smartwatch mode.
