Garmin Vívofit 4 with one year battery life on sale in Australia

Published

on

Garmin Australia will sell its vívofit 4 for $159 AUD.

The daily activity tracker will last for a year before a battery change is necessary – overcoming the biggest hassle when it comes to trackers and smartwatches.

The display is sunlight-readable, always-on colour.

The vívofit 4 is swim and shower-safe and can be paired with a smartphone for additional features.

“An activity tracker is only as effective as how often you wear it, and this is where the vívofit 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.”

The vívofit 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.

It can also ping a misplaced phone like Apple Watch.

The always on display and incredible battery life comes at a cost. There’s no onboard GPS or heart-rate monitor.

The vívofit 4 is available in White (S/M), Lime Green Speckled (S/M) and Black (S/M and L) for a recommended retail price of AU$159. Interchangeable accessory bands are available in a Speckled Merlot and Speckled Navy combo pack (S/M) for AU$39. Accessory bands in Speckled Black (S/M), White (S/M) and Black (S/M and L) are available for individual purchase for a RRP of AU$29.
