Garmin Australasia Pty Ltd., today announced the next generation of the vívomove series, the latest collection of hybrid smartwatches. Designed with style in mind, the new lineup - vívomove 3/3S, vívomove Style and vívomove Luxe - have the appearance of a traditional timepiece, with real ticking hands and elegant dial details. With a flick of the wrist, the hands dynamically move out of the way to reveal a hidden smart screen with health and fitness tracking data, and smart notifications for text messages, social media updates, calendar reminders and more.

"The vívomove watches are designed for those who want the connected and health features of a smartwatch with a more fashion-forward look better suited for the office or dressing up," said Matthew Thomas, General Manager, Garmin Australasia. "With an extensive selection of bands and metal finishes, it’s a stylish accessory that also keeps tabs on your text messages, energy, stress, sleep and more."

The vívomove series builds on the previous vívomove HR by adding new advanced wellness features like pulse ox1 and Body BatteryTM energy monitoring, connected GPS, and Garmin PayTM (select models only). The vívomove has a battery life of up to 5 days in smartwatch mode and will keep ticking for an additional week in watch mode.

The premium vívomove Luxe has a 42mm stainless steel bezel and stainless steel casing with a choice of an Italian leather or Milanese metal strap. It features hidden dual AMOLED color touchscreen displays with moving hands that interact with smartwatch graphics. With a domed sapphire crystal lens and elegant watch face details, the vívomove Luxe exudes round the clock style and sophistication.

With a choice of a woven nylon or silicone band, the vívomove Style has a 42mm aluminum bezel and aluminum casing available in a variety of attractive metal finishes. It features a domed Corning Gorilla glass lens and the same interactive dual AMOLED displays as the vívomove Luxe.
