You won't often see us recommending you buy three or four year-old gadgets regardless of how cheap you can get them on eBay or other such websites, but while the 2017-released Garmin Vivoactive 3 is obviously not among the best smartwatches of 2021, a killer new deal makes the wearable veteran pretty much impossible to ignore for self-respecting bargain hunters.
- We at PhoneArena are keeping careful track of all the Prime Day Sales, both at Amazon and elsewhere. You only have to check out our deal hub for the best deals to find what you need!
Available back in the day for as much as $300, the relatively stylish and almost surprisingly feature-packed circular device is currently on sale starting at just $89.99. That makes this full-fledged smartwatch more affordable than many of today's best hybrid models, and yes, we're talking about brand-new, unused, unopened, and undamaged units sold at that ridiculously low price by Best Buy for a limited time.
The only version still in stock at one of the largest retailers in the US (and in the world) combines a robust stainless steel body with a silver bezel and black silicone band as it tries (and mostly succeeds) in striking a great balance between durability and elegance.
Granted, the Vivoactive 3 is perhaps not as eye-catching as the Vivoactive 4 and it's definitely not as fashionable as the AMOLED display-sporting Garmin Venu and Venu 2 series, but that's because all those newer devices are priced at well over 250 bucks apiece.
Incredibly enough, you won't be missing much in terms of key features, sensors, and health tracking tools if you decide to keep your spending in check this Mother's Day, as the Garmin Vivoactive 3 comes with everything from standalone GPS connectivity to a built-in heart rate monitor, NFC support for wrist payments, sleep tracking, VO2 max technology, and a stellar battery life of up to 7 days in tow.
Now why in the world would you want to cough up hundreds of dollars more for a slightly sleeker design and an extremely similar list of capabilities?
