Garmin Vivoactive 3 Music Goes Mobile With Verizon LTE

Garmin is poised to take the Vivoactive 3 Music fitness watch, introduced last summer, to the next level with Verizon LTE.

According to the FCC-published user manual, you’ll be able to connect to Verizon for data transfer and text messaging. Data transfer is a nice addition for those that want to sideload music without having to connect to Garmin Connect desktop or via WiFi. With the addition of data, it also appears that Garmin’s LiveTrack will live up to its name and update while you’re out on that marathon run.

Along with the always-on Vivoactive LTE connectivity, there’s sure to be a monthly fee … that we expect to clock in lower than Apple Watch @ $10/mo (despite sporting a similar red-ringed crown).
