Garmin just announced another Vivo wristband, the vivosmart 3, a smart activity tracker with an ultra-slim design and a hidden display that’s only on when you need it. It includes a host of guided breathing exercise and stress level charts. It is just $140. In simple words: we say that this should be making Fitbit’s heart rate go up a little bit.

Garmin Vivosmart 3 Design

The Vivosmart looks to be made of the same flexible elastomer as the previous Vivosmart bands. The new device is lighter, thinner, and has a Chroma display ‘hidden’ behind the band. Hidden display only visible when activated via alerts or notifications, gestures. When not in use, the screen disappears from view.
