Garmin announces vívosmart 4

Garmin has announced the vívosmart 4, a smart activity tracker that introduces a wrist-based pulse ox sensor. 

The vívosmart 4 also features a Body Battery energy monitor that estimates the body’s energy reserves, letting users know the optimal time for activity and rest.

“Sleep quality plays a critical role in your overall physical health,” said Adam Howarth, General Manager Garmin Australasia.

“Poor sleep quality may contribute to the development of significant chronic conditions. With its slim design, the vívosmart 4 is comfortable to wear at night and pulse ox provides customers with information they can use to improve their health.”

Garmin’s new advanced sleep monitoring estimates light, deep and REM stages of sleep, along with movement throughout the night. Users can check their sleep stats in the Garmin Connect mobile app. 

The vívosmart 4 comes pre-loaded with a newly redesigned Elevate wrist-based heart rate sensor, abnormal heart rate alerts, VO2 max and activities for walks, runs, strength training, pool swims, yoga and more

Users can also check the weather, control music, receive smart notifications with vibration alerts, “find your phone”, access social media notifications and even reply to texts with preset messages. 

The vívosmart 4 is available in Grey and Rose Gold, Berry and Gold, Azure Blue and Silver, and Black and Slate for $199

Ultimately this laptop has achieved everything I would hope for in a laptop for work, while fitting that into a form factor and weight that is remarkable.

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

Jack Jeffries


As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

Taylor Carr


The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
