Next is the vivoactive 3 smartwatch, a full-fledged smartwatch with touchscreen display and activity tracking capabilities including heart rate monitoring. It has GPS, and is the first smartwatch to support's Garmin's new contact payment solution called Garmin Pay, allowing you to leave your wallet at home, when you're out. It also supports third-party apps, that can be downloaded from Garmin Connect IQ store, and promises up to seven days of battery life (up to 13 hours on GPS mode).

The vivoactive 3 is priced at $300, and comes in Black/stainless, White/stainless and Black/slate color options.
