Garmin launched a new music-edition of its Vivoactive 3 wearable that adds a music player and local storage on top of the included fitness tracker and GPS, writes online publication TheVerge.com. It's called the Vivoactive 3 Music and will cost USD 299.99. The Vivoactive 3 was first announced in August as a direct rival to similar smartwatches built by Apple, Fitbit, and Samsung. End-users may initially get offline music playlists from iHeartRadio, with Deezer said to be coming soon. Spotify, Amazon, Google, and Apple's music streaming services aren't supported.
