Garmin Announces New Vivofit 4

Garmin Australia has announced the Vivofit 4, a daily activity tracker with a 1+ year battery life – no charging necessary – and a sunlight-readable, always-on colour display.

“An activity tracker is only as effective as how often you wear if, and this is where the Vivofit 4 really shines – you can set it and forget it,” said Adam Howarth, General Manager Garmin Australasia.

“It’s the ideal device for customers who want something reliable that they don’t need to hassle with or take off to recharge.”

Designed for 24/7 wearability, the Vivofit 4 is swim and shower-safe and features a sleek, comfortable 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 coloured move bar that fills up when a user has been stationary too long. It also assigns daily step goals based on current activity levels that automatically adjust to the user, gradually nudging them toward a healthier, more active lifestyle.

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.

Meanwhile, a weather widget gives a quick, 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.

Using the Garmin Connect app, users can customise the Vivofit 4 with various watch faces, colour themes and personalised text. Interchangeable accessory bands make it easy to switch up colours and styles to match any mood or outfit.

The Vivofit 4 is available in White, Speckled Lime Green and Black for AU$159. Interchangeable accessory bands are available in Speckled Merlot and Speckled Navy for AU$39. Accessory bands in Speckled Black, White and Black are available for AU$29.
