Take safety, songs and texts on the go with the Garmin® vívoactive® 3 Music – connected by Verizon

New GPS smartwatch lets users leave their phone and worries behind

Garmin International, Inc., a unit of Garmin Ltd. (NASDAQ: GRMN), today
announced the
3 Music
– connected by Verizon,
its first GPS smartwatch
with 4G LTE connectivity for safety features, music downloads and text
messages right from the wrist – no phone required. Whether workouts
happen in the gym or on the road, first thing in the morning or at dusk,
alone or with a group, this new vívoactive 3 Music is designed to help
users stay connected on the go and in case of an emergency.

New safety features built into the vívoactive 3 Music (Verizon),
including assistance and incident detection, give users and their loved
ones peace of mind. If anything should happen or the user feels unsafe
for any reason, holding the watch’s button for five seconds can trigger
a discreet message to notify pre-loaded emergency contacts and
continuously share the user’s real-time location with them. The built-in
incident detection feature senses when the wearer experiences an impact
while walking, running or cycling, and will automatically notify
pre-loaded emergency contacts of the user’s real-time whereabouts. And
users can also let friends and family follow their activities in
real-time whenever they’d like, simply by initiating the LiveTrack
feature from the watch.

“The vívoactive 3 Music with 4G LTE connectivity gives you everything
you need from your phone – safety features, text messaging and the
ability to download and listen to music – now on your watch, so
customers can leave their phones behind with confidence,” said Dan
Bartel, Garmin vice president of global consumer sales. “Designed for
customers who lead an active lifestyle, we’re excited to introduce these
new safety and communication features to the Verizon-connected
vívoactive 3 Music to give added peace of mind on the go, so leaving
your phone at home can be a choice instead of a cause for panic.”

Featuring the same high-end fitness, wellness and smart connectivity
features first introduced on the vívoactive 3 Music, the
Verizon-connected version gives users an extra pep in their step with
the ability to download their favorite songs or playlists1,
including those from third-party music services like Deezer and Spotify
(coming soon), right to their wrist. Simply download the music service
app from the Connect IQ™ store, and sync. Then queue up those songs for
easy listening with compatible Bluetooth® headphones (sold separately)
phone-free, right from the watch.

Garmin Pay™, a contactless payment solution2 enabled by
FitPay™, means users can leave their credit cards at home and still stop
to grab a drink or to eat while out and about. Utilizing their Garmin
Pay wallet, users have the same rewards and benefits of the physical
cards, with the convenience of having them right on the wrist for
contactless payment.

With Elevate™ wrist-based heart rate3 and over 15 built-in
indoor and outdoor sports apps including yoga, cardio, strength training
and more, the vívoactive 3 Music series is packed with features to keep
up with a varied active lifestyle. The Garmin Chroma Display™ is easy to
read — even in direct sunlight — and is housed under the premium
durability of Corning® Gorilla® Glass 3. Like all
Garmin wearables, it is safe for swimming and showering4. The
vívoactive 3 Music (Verizon) uses the ALT1210 chipset from Altair
Semiconductor, a leading provider of LTE chipsets.

The vívoactive 3 Music (Verizon) has a battery life of up to 5 days in
smartwatch mode or up to 4 hours when connected to GPS, playing music
and using the LiveTrack feature over 4G LTE5. A Verizon
connected device plan is required to use the built-in safety features,
texting, and music downloads. Visit the Verizon website for plan
details. Pricing for the Verizon-connected vívoactive 3 Music will be
announced with availability in Q1 2019. The vívoactive 3 Music –
