Exercise in style

The Vivoactive 4 Series comes in five different colors (slate/black, silver/gray, gold/pink, rose gold/white) and 2 sizes (4.3 to 6.8 inches). The 1.3 or 1.1-inch display (260 x 260-pixel resolution), depending on the size, will display crisp information. The screen being trans reflective, make sure to increase the brightness in bright daylight. The battery life is one of the best on the market, with up to 8 days in smartwatch mode and 18 hours if the GPS and music are both activated.

The protective Corning Gorilla glass and stainless steel bezel will efficiently protect the display from daily-life scratches. The silicone strap is comfortable to wear and perfectly adapted to a waterproof fitness tracker that can be worn all day and night long. Being compatible with the standard quick-release band, it is also possible to watch a more corporate look by choosing the strap that will fit your lifestyle.

No need to worry when having a shower following your workout or your jogging. The watch is so comfortable that you will forget that you are wearing it and enjoy the benefits it has to offer.

The interface uses two buttons to control the interface which is very similar to the Garmin Forerunners and Fenix.

A universe of widgets, and possibilities with the Garmin Connect app and the Connect IQ store

The Garmin Vivowatch 4 is a fitness tracker, and it does it well. It is possible to track more than twenty different types of exercise. The watch will display an animated demonstration to help improve your yoga poses, pilates, or cardio workout. It is even possible to download more types of exercises by connection to the IQ store.

To be noted that there is even a specific widget for practicing golf that includes the data for specific golf courses. Some may argue that there are no specific follow-ups on the workouts. We consider it a detail. The Garmin Coach was more than enough to keep us on track.

Bu showing your energy level throughout the day, it is easy to spot the best time for exercising at the most efficient time.

The Garmin Vivowatch 4 is full of sensors to track everything from your stress level to your hydration, Blood oxygen saturation, and much more. We particularly like the Garmin pregnancy tracking feature that allows you to track the pregnancy’s progress and how it will impact your fitness.

By connecting to the Connect app, it is possible to fully customize and personalize the functions, to add widgets, and to change the watch faces.

The Garmin Vivowatch 4 also offers the possibility to pair with your Bluetooth earbuds and listen to your favorite by login into your Amazon Music, Deezer, or Spotify account. Not to forget the Garmin Pay contactless payment solution.

Final thoughts

The Garmin Vivowatch 4 is one of the best and most affordable fitness watches on the market. With the current drop in price, the choice is to wait for the new models that will reach the market later this year or take advantage of this deal, save money, and enjoy a stylish and brilliant fitness watch. Why not take advantage of the savings to buy one for your better half as well?
