The Vivoactive 3 Music has a pretty complete set of features: onboard storage for 500 songs, although they have to be sideloaded from a computer, much like the Fitbit Ionic and Versa; iHeartRadio and upcoming Deezer support for music synced from a phone; Garmin Pay contactless payments; Global Positioning System; and up to a seven-day battery life (5 hours with Global Positioning System on). See the pattern? For reference, the Forerunner 645 and the Vivoactive 3 are both excellent GPS-equipped smartwatches, but the former is smartwatch with more features for serious runners (instead of just athletes).
Deezer support is also "coming soon" (for offline playlist downloads only), or you can transfer music directly from a computer to your Global Positioning System smartwatch.
The Garmin vivoactive 3 Music is available today in Black/Stainless steel only and costs $300. When outside, you can use Garmin Pay to buy coffee and snacks and when you get back home, the SmartThings integration will let you control smart devices at home.

United States to co-host 2026 World Cup with Canada and Mexico
The 2026 tournament will be held in United States, Canada and Mexico after their joint bid beat that of Morocco on Wednesday. Hosting rights for previous World Cups had been awarded by what was then a 24-person FIFA Executive Committee.
The Garmin Vivoactive 3 Music is really for those who will take advantage of its music storage and offline listening. With GPS tracking and music playing, the battery will last 5 hours. Then you need to pair some sweat-proof headphones and head out. Unfortunately, if you're a subscriber to Spotify, Apple Music, Amazon Music or Google Play Music, offline listening is off the table for you (for now).
It's basically the Vivoactive 3, but with music. The non-music vivoactive 3 watch has dropped to $250.
Why it matters: For many, music is a huge motivating factor during a workout and with Bluetooth headphones in wide circulation, we're seeing people listen to tunes in public more than ever.
