Picking Out That Special Gift For That Special Person

Posted by Beth Hartman

Picking out that perfect gift for someone who is the “Hard to Buy For” person is always a challenge, especially during the holidays. Knowing that they are new into fitness and that you want to encourage them so that they continue well into the New Year and beyond can make your gift selection a little easier. You’ve done some internet searching and know that one thing that can help contribute to keeping that person motivated so that they continue to meet and surpass set goals is important. Being able to verify that they’ve reached that goal is made a lot easier by using a Fitness/Activity tracker. This way, there is no guesswork about whether the goals have been met, in the time you allotted for them. You have that data available right there on your smartwatch, that hopefully uploads that data into an easy to view, and possibly share an environment that can be viewed anywhere and anytime.

One such Fitness Tracker is the Garmin Vivoactive 3 GPS Smart Activity Tracker . One short statement that about sums up this tracker is that it’s the subtle smartwatch that’s built for life as well as fitness! With smart notifications, GPS, sports tracking that rivals high-end devices, an onboard payment system, that takes away the need to carry your wallet or cards in a wearable device as you train out on a mountain trail is a big plus, and you can’t deny that it has a subtle, stylish design.

The Garmin Vivoactive 3 has a wrist-based heart rate sensor, GPS tracking and a selection of built-in apps dedicated to keeping tabs on a range of sports activities, from running and indoor/outdoor cycling to skiing and snowboarding.

Although the Vivoactive 3's focus may be on fitness, this versatile wearable also has plenty of other features to shout about, including smart notifications, an onboard payment system called Garmin Pay as well as both sleep and real-time stress tracking.

We've all heard that stress can be the "bane" of society today, learning to decrease your stress, even being aware of how much stress you’re going through each day and at what times is worth a lot to help you maintain a healthy lifestyle, not to mention a better outlook on your life! The stress level app of the Garmin Vivoactive 3 can help you be aware of what and when stress can impact your day, and then you can see about dealing with what has caused you to stress at this time and work to eliminate it!

Like any fitness tracker, the Vivoactive 3 will track your steps, distance, even your sleep. It has more than 15 preloaded GPS and indoor sports apps, including yoga, running, swimming and more, while its monitoring your fitness levels with VO2 max and gauging the data accumulated against your fitness age estimates that you programmed into your smartwatch. This data can be uploaded to Garmin’s community called Garmin Connect. So, what is Garmin Connect? Garmin Connect™ is your one-stop source for health and fitness data. Once paired with your Garmin Vivoactive 3 Smartwatch, tracking your activity is just the beginning of what Garmin Connect™ can do for you. You can create new workouts, build courses and even challenge your friends to compete, all within the app.

Depending on which version of the Vivoactive 3 you decide to get, one has the ability to store up to 500 songs that will help keep a person going, maybe just when they think of stopping. After all, you know the right song, at the right time, can make all the difference to your attitude and may just be the catalyst you need to get you to conquer that last 5 miles of your run.
