Garmin has announced the vívofit 4, their activity tracker with over a year of battery life and a sunlight-readable, always-on colour display. The vívofit 4 is swim- and shower-safe and can be paired with a smartphone for additional features.
The vívofit 4 starts tracking steps and encourages users to stay active with a coloured move bar that fills up when a user has been stationary for too long. It also assigns daily step goals based on current activity levels which automatically adjust to the user.
When paired with a smartphone, it can track sleep, intensity minutes and automatically detect changes in a user’s movement and capture and classify activities such as walking, running, biking, swimming and using an elliptical.
You can use the vívofit 4 as an everyday watch, complete with a countdown timer, stopwatch and multiple alarms. A weather widget gives a quick, illustrated look at the day’s weather and it includes Find My Phone for those who need a little extra help keeping track of their smartphone.
Using the Garmin Connect app the vívofit 4 can be customised with various watch faces, colour themes and personalised text, such as an emergency contact or a motivational phrase. Interchangeable accessory bands (sold separately) make it easy to switch up colours and styles to match any mood or outfit.
The vívofit 4 is available in White (S/M), Lime Green Speckled (S/M) and Black (S/M and L) for a recommended retail price of AU$159. Interchangeable accessory bands are available in a Speckled Merlot and Speckled Navy combo pack (S/M) for AU$39. Accessory bands in Speckled Black (S/M), White (S/M) and Black (S/M and L) are available for individual purchase for a RRP of AU$29.
