Recently purchased online after reading a lot of good reviews. Easy to use, settings were easy to change to suit my needs. Reason I purchased was to track steps, monitor heart rate and monitor activity. So far so good. Two staff members at my work each have one and love theirs also.

It is a great product I recommend buying it. It's
It is a great product I recommend buying it. It's very easy to figure out how to operate and there is only one button on the side so it isn't confusing. You can customise practically everything to fit your personal needs. It comes in a variety of colours and fits my wrist perfectly. Nice and expandable so anyone can wear it. It doesn't matter what gender because it suits all with it's wide range of sizes, colours and isn't too girly or too boyish. I recommended it to my friends and they all got one as well. Very pleased with the purchase and I am going to buy it for my brother's
So far, so good
I got this device to keep GPS track of running and XC skiing (maybe swimming in future - no gps), and to transfer it to Strava. I also have a Garmin 520, so IQ connect already installed, and it was a breeze to register the Vivoactive 3 and get most recent software. I was a little leery about touch screens, but timing actual events uses a physical button, so I am less concerned about unintentional touching of the screen by winter clothing causing problems with recording an event.
Surprised by the number of messages the watch gives me about activities, but there is a lot to learn about features. Not interested at all in the credit pay features.
I will update this review as I actually get to use it more
Not user friendly if one doesnt fit the preloaded
I regularly do aquaerobis. Tried to make a custom workout .. didnt fit the mould. What i managed to input using the phone doesnt appear on the device.
Only hold its charge for a day with gps activated. Limited monitoring with out gps. Lots of $$$ for extremely little reward unless i want to monitor my heart rate or count my steps. A thoughtful gift.. very disappointed.
Coaching Plan Alerts
I purchased this watch because it was one of the compatible wearables with half marathon training via Garmin Connect. I choose the Galloway plan which includes walking intervals. Alerts do not go off on this watch using the coaching plans which makes it completely useless. I can't set up the plan using the typical alerts because it will make my training plan workout as missed. So bummed!
