Commenting on the launch, Ali Rizvi, National Sales Manager Garmin India said:

The launch of Vivoactive 3 is a short in the arm for (a variety) of fitness activity users. This is a single device accessible to do away with all your worries and to help you indulge in fitness like never before. Even the fitness wearable audience just got bigger and wider since Vivoactive 3 has the advanced capability to accommodate the diverse needs of a vast population.

You need not worry about tagging along with a different fitness device if you feel like doing yoga on one day and jogging the next day. Vivoactive 3 will stay fit for you anywhere, under the water, during the long, strenuous training hours. We are looking at a whole community of Vivoactive 3 users since it perfectly fits the requirement of a cardio-fitness trainer to people doing strength training inside the gym. All of them can accompany each other wearing the trendy Vivoactive 3 design. It looks sleek, stylish and prominent, all at the same time.
