Over used both fairly recently, so I can give you a solid account. I do a fair amount of walking, running, and swimming. The tracking on the Garmin is slightly better, but that would only matter to people that need very accurate tracking. Swim laps and want to keep rough idea of my heartrate while swimming, you can do that with the galaxy active/active 2, no go with the garmin, the HR monitor cannot function in the water, and that was ultimately a no go for me. The aesthetics are way better in favor of the Samsung, it looks very nice, beautiful screen, vibrant colors, and previous person was correct, it's a full fledged smartwatch with ability to control and hold music and far more options to reply to notification and such. The vivoactive by comparison does look rather cheap, screen is very basic and bland. It's built well though and quite sturdy. Main knock on the active 2 for me was a digital rotating bezel instead of a rotating bezel. I had the gear sport which was tbh is still almost the same watch as the active and active 2, but when I had that I could knock it into whatever and the bezel protected the screen everytime. I never knocked the active 2 luckily but if I did I cant imagine the bare screen would survive any hard impacts (eg. accidentally swing arm while walking past a light pole). The garmin has a protective bezel.
Overall to me there wasn't a big enough difference in tracking accuracy for me to keep the vivoactive 3 for more than a month. I went back to my gear sport at the time, then galaxy watch 42mm, active 2 for a couple months back to the galaxy (better aesthetic, physical bezel, and pretty much same fitness features

Hopefully Amazon matches the price and we can use the 20% off Discover/Amex promotions to get it for $80.

can the Bluetooth be "shut off" on it to save even more battery? Then turn it on only to sync up to your phone when needed?

Yes. I usually leave Bluetooth on during the day for smart notifications and turn it off at night to extend battery life. I get around 7 days on a full charge doing that.

Yes and it deactivated the sync to phone along with notifications. It's a great basic fitness watch with ant+ tech. This gives you 3-4 days of watch use and occasional workout recordings.
