The Vivoactive 3 has had a price cut, due to the release of the Vivoactive 4. This is the best price I've seen so far:

This is the version w/o music.
They also have a refurb for $20 less, but I don't think it's worth it. Only 90 day warranty.

It's been this price at target for 3 weeks. If RedCard holder, you'd save 6% more.

I have the music version, which to me is worth the extra money to get the black watch face that doesn't have the shiny glare of the silver one. Also, Garmin was the victim of a cyberransom attack that meant all of their online services were down, and a week later, I still can't use the ios app. I'm considering going back to the Apple Watch 3, down to $200 at Target.

I'm on iOS and the same watch as you and things have been working fine since this past Monday. Have you tried to sync your watch with the app? Make sure it's open (extend the duration of screen timeout) and let it sync. Word is it can take up to 15 min or even longer.

Amazon store card gets 5% back, did target really change it to 6 now?

I also have the music version (got it on an AAFES deal about six months ago) and I really like it. Yes, it didn't sync for a few days, but now it seems back to normal now synching with my Android/Moto phone. I have had a lot of different Garmin smartwatches and stayed with their Connect software for about 6 years. I don't think I would like this watch as much without the music feature, but I am content to stay with it rather than upgrading to the 4.

For those commenting about the Music version, have the apps gotten better? I found the BT consistently cutting out & the amazon music & spottily apps really buggy. It would take amazon multiple tries to download the music.

Bluetooth cutting out is a hardware issue. The first generation of Garmin music watches all had the issue and the only real fix is swapping the watch to your right wrist when you run outside. The newer ones (245M/945M/Fenix 6 etc.) have a much, much more stable BT connection.

Can it control music/media from my phone? I've been looking for an upgrade to my original vivoactive. I tried the 35 and was completely disappointed with it and returned it.

It's been $132 for quite long time. I'm waiting for it down to $100.

Have you tried electing the app and downloading again? I had issues too even after my friends was working again. I downloaded the app again and all issues were gone.

As someone new to smart watches, anyone know the pros and cons again carrying a phone? I mainly do biking so don't mind the extra weight (vs an activity like jump roping)

I've got the non-music version of this watch and I like it a lot. I use it a lot to track my rides and I don't even bother with a dedicated bike computer any more. You can connect an HR strap and other measurement devices via ANT+ and the GPS seems to be very accurate. For $129 I don't think you can do much better. I still carry my phone so I have music and a way to make calls, if needed.

I see! Does the GPS have voice controls that can inform you what turns to make while riding?
