(Pocket-lint) - Garmin is planning to update its Vivosmart fitness tracker, if leaked pictures are anything to go by.

Wareable claims to have got its hands on an image showing a Garmin Vivosmart 3 in three different poses. And as one of them shows the name on the rear, along with a QR code, there is no reason to doubt their validity.

Little else can really be gleaned from the images. There is a textured strap, similar to the Garmin Vivosmart HR+ released at the end of last year, and Wareable suggests that the screen will actually be different to the one pictured. That suggests these pictures are concept art rather than final press images.

It is thought to be pitched against similar devices from Fitbit, Misfit and Nokia (which is rebranding all future Withings trackers after a company acquisition). Price and release details are yet to be revealed, however.

We liked the Vivosmart HR+ so an update of some description is welcomed around these parts.

We would imagine the heart rate monitoring will be on-board again, and hopefully the GPS functionality too.

That device was released around the £170 mark, so we'd expect the Vivosmart 3 to be in the same ballpark.
