Garmin vívoactive 3 Music: Your Songs on Your Wrist

Earlier this year, the Forerunner 645 Music ($450) - read our review, here - added built-in music to the already excellent Forerunner 645 ($400). The Vivoactive 3 Music will be equipped with an always-on touchscreen display, heart-rate sensors, sleep monitoring capabilities, GPS, customizable watch faces, and a number of activity trackers that can count your steps or track your runs, bike rides, or golf outings. Those songs can be transferred from your computer or downloaded from a music streaming service.

Essentially an upgraded version of the standard Vivoactive 3 released at the back of past year, the 3 Music will now let you store music on another of its watches as well as enjoy some offline syncing support from select music streaming services. A similar partnership with Deezer is coming soon, but we'd like to see Pandora (available on the Fitbit Versa) or Spotify. The Vivoactive 3 Music offers enough storage to hold about 500 songs, and you can connect Bluetooth headphones to the device to listen without your phone. With GPS tracking and music playing, the battery will last 5 hours. "And with Garmin Pay, you can leave your wallet back at home, too, making it easier than ever to just get up and go". Then you need to pair some sweat-proof headphones and head out. It also comes in at £100 cheaper than the Forerunner 645 Music, so if you can live without the more advanced metrics and want that music, it may well have some appeal.

If you're interested in a Garmin smartwatch with onboard storage for music, the Vivoactive 3 Music is a significantly more affordable option than the Forerunner 645 Music. You can order it today for $300.
