ENERGIZING: The Mercedes-Benz vívoactive® 3 smartwatch provides vitality behind the wheel: Connectivity that enhances wellbeing

Oct 1, 2019

Stuttgart. Can a vehicle detect from its driver's heart rate how they are feeling - and automatically improve their sense of wellbeing while driving? With the vívoactive® 3 wearable from Mercedes-Benz in collaboration with Garmin® and the new ENERGIZING COACH, an integral health feature of the latest generations of CLA and GLE, such intelligent comfort is now achievable. Via the Mercedes me app, the smartwatch app transmits significant vital data of the wearer to the vehicle. From this an algorithm derives the wearer's stress level and recommends the appropriate ENERGIZING (Comfort) program, while also taking into account further parameters. When the driver accepts the recommendation, the atmosphere in the interior optimally adapts to his needs. Not only in the vehicle, but also in everyday life, the Mercedes-Benz vívoactive® 3 is a reliable and stylish companion for more health and vitality.

Keep an eye on the time, enjoy a host of innovative additional functions and monitor your health and fitness levels - all from your wrist - with the Mercedes-Benz vívoactive® 3 smartwatch from Garmin®. Behind the sporty, dynamic design is an intelligent everyday accessory that makes optimum use of all that the digital age has to offer. The three-pointed star on the sophisticated touchscreen watch face was designed exclusively with Mercedes-Benz Designers together with Garmin®. It serves as an elegant demonstration of the way in which two pioneers in their respective fields have combined their expertise, know-how and sense of stylish design.

Particularly challenging or long and monotonous routes can also strain even those who enjoy driving and are used to spending protracted periods at the wheel. And this is where the Mercedes-Benz vívoactive® 3 in conjunction with the new ENERGIZING Packages is able to reveal its full potential. The smartwatch links via the Mercedes me App and the iOS smartphone into the vehicle's telematics system and transmits the pulse rate on the display.

Vital data such as stress level or sleep quality supplement the accuracy of the intelligent algorithm in the backend, which recommends a situational and individually adapted wellness or activation program depending on environmental, vehicle and vital data. Here, music, ambient lighting, temperature and massage function - depending on the equipment of the vehicle – are combined and thus assures as relaxed an arrival as possible. The Mercedes-Benz vívoactive® 3 provides a range of features that prove useful also outside of the vehicle.

Apart from monitoring personal fitness levels, the smartwatch is, for example, Garmin PayTM-ready, thus able to allow contactless payments. Its compatibility with Android and Apple smartphones via the Garmin ConnectTM Mobile app expands its potential uses to many other areas.

Visually speaking, the Mercedes-Benz vívoactive® 3 offers a stylish, yet minimalistic and dynamic look. The round casing in black or white plastic, features a bezel and back in high-quality stainless steel. A silicon strap, colour-coordinated to the casing, ensures that the watch sits firmly and comfortably, whatever the activity. The colour display, featuring a touchscreen made out of Corning® Gorilla® glass, can be set to reflect the wearer's personal style with one of a range of pre-installed watch faces in an exclusive Mercedes-Benz design, and is reliable to use. The battery life of the vívoactive® 3 is up to seven days; if GPS mode is activated the battery will last about 13 hours.
