Weeks after unveiling the Vivoactive 3 Music smartwatch, Garmin has introduced the Vivosmart 4 fitness tracker to rival the recently launched Fitbit Charge 3. The activity-minded wearable comes with advanced sleep monitoring and blood oxygen sensor for tracking the quality of your sleep and estimate the light, deep and REM stages of sleep. The Garmin Vivosmart 4 will be available for an asking price of $129.99 (approx. Rs 9,200).
Designed to full waterproof, the Vivosmart 4 equips Garmin’s updated Elevate heart-rate sensor that can track abnormal rhythms in the heart, stress tracking and analysing VO2 max levels when performing activities like walks, runs, strength training, yoga and swimming. There’s a Pulse Oxygen sensor which measures the blood oxygen saturation to accurate tracking of sleep quality.
The Garmin wearable comes with a tiny grayscale display that will be able to show you basic smartwatch notifications which you can really to with a basic set of preset messages. The display is surrounded by metallic accents which are available in gold, silver and rose gold depending upon the variant you choose. In addition to being pool-safe and shower-safe, the Vivosmart 4 will also be able to last you to up to 7 days on a single charge.
There’s a new Body battery energy monitor which uses data from HRV, activities and stress to estimate a person’s energy reserves within their body. This will notify you when’s the right time for you to exercise or get some rest. A higher number will indicate that you’re supposed to get on without your regular workout while a lower count means you might need to get some rest soon.
Garmin’s Vivosmart 4 will be available in Berry, Power Grey, Azure Blue and Black colours and will retail for an asking price of $129.99 (approx. Rs 9,200).
