Pros Great display, good fitness tracking capabilitiesExcellent set of fitness features, convenient and easy to use, solid displaySleek and stylish design, very easy to use, great fitness tracking abilitiesGreat value, super easy to use, great displayGood display, fairly inexpensive, accurate step counter
Cons Expensive, harder to useNo integrated GPS unit, screen can be hard to read in direct sunShorter battery life, large screen is susceptible to damageDidn’t do the best in our heart rate accuracy test, not the most comfortableNo stair tracker, limited community compare functions
Bottom Line One of the newer models from Garmin, the Vivoactive 3 this model has a great display but just can’t quite compete with the top modelsFinishing at the top of the group, the Charge 3 is our favorite fitness tracker that we have tested to dateThis sleek and stylish product is the perfect option for someone who wants their tracker to make a style statementThe Fitbit Inspire HR is one of the best value fitness trackers that you can buyThe Fit is a good option for anyone who wants a basic set of fitness, health, and smart features in a slimmer package than most smartwatches
