Garmin Vivoactive 3 Music Smartwatch with 4G LTE Launches at CES 2019

Garmin partners with Verizon for a connected smartwatch.

Garmin announced the vívoactive 3 Music at the CES 2019, It's the company's first GPS smartwatch with 4G LTE connectivity provided by Verizon.

New safety features built into the vívoactive 3 Music (Verizon), including assistance and incident detection. If anything should happen or the user feels unsafe for any reason, holding the watch’s button for five seconds can trigger a discreet message to notify pre-loaded emergency contacts and continuously share the user’s real-time location with them.

The built-in incident detection feature senses when the wearer experiences an impact while walking, running or cycling, and will automatically notify pre-loaded emergency contacts of the user’s real-time whereabouts. And users can also let friends and family follow their activities in real-time whenever they’d like, simply by initiating the LiveTrack feature from the watch.

Featuring the same high-end fitness, wellness and smart connectivity features first introduced on the vívoactive 3 Music, the Verizon-connected version gives users an extra pep in their step with the ability to download their favorite songs or playlists1, including those from third-party music services like Deezer and Spotify (coming soon), right to their wrist. Simply download the music service app from the Connect IQ store, and sync. Then queue up those songs for easy listening with compatible Bluetooth headphones (sold separately) phone-free, right from the watch.

Pricing for the Verizon-connected vívoactive 3 Music will be announced with availability in Q1 2019. The Garmin vívoactive 3 Music without LTE sells for $299.
