activity, sleep, nutrition, and general life stress all impact your
stress level. The stress level range is from 0 to 100, where 0 to
25 is a resting state, 26 to 50 is low stress, 51 to 75 is medium
stress, and 76 to 100 is a high stress state. Knowing your stress
level can help you identify stressful moments throughout your
day. For best results, you should wear the device while sleeping.
You can sync your device with your Garmin Connect account to
view your all-day stress level, long-term trends, and additional
details.
Viewing the Stress Level Graph

as brisk walking, or 75 minutes per week of vigorous intensity
activity, such as running.
The device monitors your activity intensity and tracks your time
spent participating in moderate to vigorous intensity activities
(heart rate data is required to quantify vigorous intensity). You
can work toward achieving your weekly intensity minutes goal by
participating in at least 10 consecutive minutes of moderate to
vigorous intensity activities. The device adds the amount of
moderate activity minutes with the amount of vigorous activity
minutes. Your total vigorous intensity minutes are doubled when
added.

• Synchronize your step count with the Garmin Connect
application (Syncing Your Data with Your Computer,
page 5).
• Synchronize your step count with the Garmin Connect
Mobile app (Syncing Your Data with the Garmin Connect
Mobile App, page 5).
Wait
while the device synchronizes your data.

Synchronizing can take several minutes.
NOTE: Refreshing the Garmin Connect Mobile app or the
Garmin Connect application does not synchronize your data
or update your step count.
My stress level does not appear
Before the device can detect your stress level, wrist-based heart
rate monitoring must be turned on.
The device samples your heart rate variability throughout the
day during periods of inactivity to determine your stress level.
The device does not determine your stress level during timed
activities.
If dashes appear instead of your stress level, be still, and wait
while the device measures your heart rate variability.

Troubleshooting
Is my smartphone compatible with my
device?
The vívosmart 3 device is compatible with smartphones using
Bluetooth wireless technology.
Go to www.garmin.com/ble for compatibility information.
My phone will not connect to the device
• Bring the device within range of your smartphone.
• If your devices are already paired, turn Bluetooth off on both
devices, and turn it back on.
• If your devices are not paired, enable Bluetooth wireless
technology on your smartphone.
• On your smartphone, open the Garmin Connect Mobile app,
select
or , and select Garmin Devices > Add Device to
enter pairing mode.
• On your device, hold the touchscreen to view the menu, and
select > > Pair Now to enter pairing mode.
Activity Tracking
For more information about activity tracking accuracy, go to
garmin.com/ataccuracy.
My step count does not seem accurate
If your step count does not seem accurate, you can try these
tips.
• Wear the device on your non-dominant wrist.
• Carry the device in your pocket when pushing a stroller or
lawn mower.
• Carry the device in your pocket when actively using your
hands or arms only.
NOTE: The device may interpret some repetitive motions,
such as washing dishes, folding laundry, or clapping your
hands, as steps.
The step counts on my device and my Garmin
Connect account don't match
The step count on your Garmin Connect account updates when
you synchronize your device.

When you exercise at an intensity level that qualifies toward
your intensity minutes goal, the intensity minutes flash.
Exercise for at least 10 consecutive minutes at a moderate or
vigorous intensity level.
The floors climbed amount does not seem accurate
Your device uses an internal barometer to measure elevation
changes as you climb floors. A floor climbed is equal to 3 m
(10 ft.).
• Locate the small barometer holes on the back of the device,
near the charging contacts, and clean the area around the
charging contacts.
The barometer performance may be affected if the barometer
holes are obstructed. You can rinse the device with water to
clean the area.
After cleaning, allow the device to dry completely.
• Avoid holding handrails or skipping steps while climbing
stairs.
• In windy environments, cover the device with your sleeve or
jacket as strong gusts can cause erratic readings.
Tips for Erratic Heart Rate Data
If the heart rate data is erratic or does not appear, you can try
these tips.
• Clean and dry your arm before putting on the device.
• Avoid wearing sunscreen, lotion, and insect repellent under
the device.
• Avoid scratching the heart rate sensor on the back of the
device.
• Wear the device above your wrist bone. The device should
be snug but comfortable.
• Warm up for 5 to 10 minutes and get a heart rate reading
before starting your activity.
NOTE: In cold environments, warm up indoors.
• Rinse the device with fresh water after each workout.
My device does not display the correct time
The device updates the time and date when you sync your
device to a computer or mobile device. You should sync your
device to receive the correct time when you change time zones,
and to update for daylight saving time.
1 Confirm that your computer or mobile device displays the
correct local time.
Troubleshooting
2 Select an option:
Sync your device with the Garmin Connect Mobile app
(Syncing Your Data with the Garmin Connect Mobile App,
page 5).
When new software is available, the Garmin Connect Mobile
app automatically sends the update to your device. The
update is applied when you are not actively using the device.
When the update is complete, your device restarts.
• Sync your device to a computer (Syncing Your Data with
Your Computer, page 5).
• Sync your device to a mobile device (Syncing Your Data
with the Garmin Connect Mobile App, page 5).
The time and date are updated automatically.
Maximizing Battery Life
• Turn off the Auto Activity Detection setting (Device Settings
on Your Garmin Connect Account, page 7).
• Decrease the screen brightness and timeout (Display
Settings, page 6).
• Turn off wrist gestures (Display Settings, page 6).
• In your smartphone notification center settings, limit the
notifications that appear on your vívosmart 3 device
(Managing Notifications, page 5).
• Turn off smart notifications (Bluetooth Settings, page 6).
• Turn off Bluetooth wireless technology when you are not
using connected features (Bluetooth Settings, page 6).
• Stop broadcasting heart rate data to paired Garmin devices
(Broadcasting Heart Rate Data to Garmin Devices, page 4).
• Turn off wrist-based heart rate monitoring (Wrist Heart Rate
Monitor Settings, page 6).
NOTE: Wrist-based heart rate monitoring is used to calculate
vigorous intensity minutes, VO2 max., stress level, and
calories burned.

Appendix
Fitness Goals
Knowing your heart rate zones can help you measure and
improve your fitness by understanding and applying these
principles.
• Your heart rate is a good measure of exercise intensity.
• Training in certain heart rate zones can help you improve
cardiovascular capacity and strength.
If you know your maximum heart rate, you can use the table
(Heart Rate Zone Calculations, page 9) to determine the best
heart rate zone for your fitness objectives.
If you do not know your maximum heart rate, use one of the
calculators available on the Internet. Some gyms and health
centers can provide a test that measures maximum heart rate.
The default maximum heart rate is 220 minus your age.
About Heart Rate Zones
Many athletes use heart rate zones to measure and increase
their cardiovascular strength and improve their level of fitness. A
heart rate zone is a set range of heartbeats per minute. The five
commonly accepted heart rate zones are numbered from 1 to 5
according to increasing intensity. Generally, heart rate zones are
calculated based on percentages of your maximum heart rate.
