Last Updated on April 2, 2020 by Jude Simeone

Here are the full specifications of the Garmin Vivofit 3 released in 2016, and still in production – A basic activity tracker with quite a handful of fitness tracking features that makes it a great choice for runners and indoor activity tracking.
The Vivofit 3 with an accelerometer can track your steps, distance, calories, sleep cycle, and also is able to detect and inform you of a long period of inactivity. It, however, lacks GPS, which of course is understandable considering the low price.
The Vivofit 3 uses a CR1632 button battery that’s replaceable and can last just about a year before requiring a replacement. The Vivofit 4 is a newer version you should checkout. The full specs follow.
