(Pocket-lint) - There have been some big discounts on fitness trackers of late - and some of the best come from Garmin.

The Garmin Vivoactive 3 in white can be yours for as little as £119 in today's Boxing Day sales, saving 40 per cent!


The Vivoactive 3 is Garmin's take on the fusion of smartwatches and fitness tracker. It does all the tracking that you'd expect from Garmin with heart rate and GPS, but adds in lifestyle features, like Garmin Pay.

The Vivoactive 3 was one of a new generation of Garmin devices, giving you a design that's more lifestyle and less sporty, making it a great smartwatch for daily wear. It connects to your Android or iPhone, gives lots of customisation, as well as running a range of apps and services. It has now been updated with the Vivoactive 4, but it's still an attractive device.

Of course fitness is a big part of the package and the Vivoactive comes pre-loaded with profiles for major sports, as well as tracking your daily activities like steps and sleep.

Garmin Pay allows contactless payment in the UK (as long as your bank supports it), and everything is accessible through the touchscreen display.
