Turning Off the Wrist-based Heart Rate Monitor
For the vívoactive® 3 device, the default value for the Heart Rate setting is Auto. The device automatically uses the wrist-based heart rate monitor unless you pair a chest heart rate monitor to the device.
NOTE: Disabling the wrist-based heart rate monitor also disables your VO2 max. estimate, intensity minutes, and the all-day stress feature.
NOTE: Disabling the wrist-based heart rate monitor also disables the on-wrist detection feature for Garmin Pay™ payments, and you must enter a passcode before making each payment (Garmin Pay).
