The Garmin vivofit 4 is a fitness tracker with a year-long battery life
When you already have a myriad of gizmos and gadgets that needs to be recharged on a daily basis, the mere thought of having another device added into the fray would probably send shivers down your spine.
If you’re in need of a fitness tracker, but have been refraining from getting one for reasons mentioned above, you can rest assured that your disdain towards terrible battery life won’t be aggravated with the new Garmin vivofit 4.
This is because the vivofit 4 is actually powered by two SR43 user-replaceable coin batteries, which has enough juice to power the fitness tracker for up to an entire year before running flat. An impressive feat, especially considering that the vivofit 4 is also equipped with an always-on color display.
The vivofit 4 is capable of tracking and identifying your fitness activities automatically with the help of its Move IQ feature – meaning it can tell whether you’re walking, running, cycling, or even swimming and track the necessary metrics accordingly. Yes, the vivofit 4 is also water-resistant at depths of up to 50 meters.
You can personalize the display of the vivofit 4 by changing its color theme and widgets through the Garmin Connect mobile app on your smartphone. The vivofit 4 is currently retailing for US$80 (~RM326) over in the United States – a substantial US$20 (~RM81) cheaper than its predecessor when it first went on sale.
