Garmin today announced the vivofit 4, a daily activity tracker with an 1+ year battery life and a sunlight-readable, always-on color display.
Designed for 24/7 wearability, the vivofit 4 is swim- and shower-safe and features a sleek band. The vivofit 4 is ready to go right out of the box, and can be paired with a smartphone for additional features.
Right out of the box, the vivofit 4 starts tracking steps and encourages users to stay active with a colored 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.
For those looking for more than just basic activity tracking, the vivofit 4 can be paired with a smartphone, adding even more functionality and options, such as tracking sleep, intensity minutes and more. Thanks to Move IQ, the vivofit 4 is able to detect changes in a user's movement and automatically capture and classify activities such as walking, running, biking, swimming and using an elliptical. Users can use the vivofit 4 as their everyday watch, complete with a countdown timer, stopwatch and multiple alarms. A weather widget gives an illustrated look at the day's weather. The vivofit 4 even includes Find My Phone for those who need a little extra help keeping track of their smartphone.
Through the Garmin Connect app, users can customize the vivofit 4 with various watch faces, color themes and personalized text, such as an emergency contact or motivational phrase. Interchangeable accessory bands (sold separately) make it easy to switch up colors and styles to match any mood or outfit.
The vivofit 4 is available in White (S/M), Limegreen Speckled (S/M) and Black (S/M and L) for a suggested retail price of $79.99, available on Amazon.com today. Interchangeable accessory bands are available in a Speckled Merlot and Speckled Navy combo pack (S/M) for $29.99. Accessory bands in Speckled Black (S/M), White (S/M) and Black (S/M and L) are available for individual purchase for a suggested retail price of $19.99.
