      Hello MJLSr, Thank you for taking time to post a detailed review of the vivoactive 3. We wanted to take an opportunity address the battery life concern that you are seeing. If you are getting lower than expected battery life, we would recommend powering the device off, waiting about 10 seconds, and then power the unit back on. If this does not improve the battery life that you are seeing we would love to speak with you directly. Please send an email to We would also be happy to discuss any other concerns that you have, specifically any reboots that you experience. Thanks again for posting a review. -JFH Garmin
