      Answer

      I've had mine about a month. It replaces a much older version. I find the battery lasts 5-7 days depending on how much I am using it. I wear it 24/7, but sometimes I'm scrolling through options more than others. Also depends on if you have the notification setting turned on and are getting alerts from your phone. That would use more battery than if you have that setting turned off. Hope this helps.

      Answer

      If your asking does this tell the time, yes it does. Unlike the previous Garmin models this one does not have an always on display. There is a setting to have it come on when you raise your arm and look at it or you double tap the screen to turn on the display

        Answer

        The vivosmat 3 does not sync directly with the Weight Watchers app. The Weight Watchers app can be connected with the Garmin Connect Mobile app. This allows step data to sync with Garmin Connect Mobile and then automatically sync to the Weight Watchers app. For more information on connecting the accounts visit the Weight Watchers webiste for more details.

        Answer

        If you're referring to notifications from your smartphone, like text messages, emails, incoming calls, etc....yes. It's not always persistent, however, from my experience. Texts will come in on my phone, but sometimes I won't get notified on this device. Hopefully this can be fixed with a software update or something.
