(Pocket-lint) - Garmin has unveiled two new additions to its smartwatch and activity tracking range today, the Vivoactive HR and Vivofit 3.

The Vivoactive HR is the company's smartwatch that features GPS, activity tracking, notifications and now heart rate monitoring right on the wrist. This is effectively a full-on GPS-enabled sports watch in the attractive form of an everyday smartwatch.

The Vivoactive HR is able to track steps, runs, cycling, golf, swimming and more. It'll offer notifications from calls, messages and apps like WhatsApp. You can also take advantage of the Garmin Connect IQ store for more apps made for specific needs, like custom clock faces for example.

The Vivofit 3 is an ultra compact activity tracker for measuring steps, calories, sleep and exercise. The new Move IQ automatically detects activity and intensity minutes. Despite constant tracking, even for swimming or running, it'll last for a year before the battery runs out. Bands are interchangeable and there is also a Garmin Style Collection including new design from Jonathan Adler.

The Vivoactive HR is £210 and will be available in March while the Vivofit 3 is £90 and should be available shortly after that release.
