Garmin introduced its most affordable fitness bracelet - Vivofit 4. The new model received a non-vanishing color display and runs on batteries that change only about once a year.
What can he do?
Garmin Vivofit 4 automatically determines the type of activity, including steps, running, cycling, elliptical training and swimming. The body of the gadget withstands the pressure of 5 atmospheres, which is equivalent to immersion in water to a depth of 50 meters. The screen with a resolution of 88x88 pixels reproduces 8 colors. It displays the number of steps and distance traveled, calories and weather forecast spent. There are several themes to choose from. Notifications from the smartphone are not supported, but with the help of a bracelet you can find the device left in the room (if, of course, it has Bluetooth on). Vivofit 4 can remind you to walk if the user is sitting for a long time. Sleep monitor and alarm clock, too.
Detailed statistics of activity is available in the mobile application Garmin Connect, own tracker memory is enough for four weeks of work without synchronization. Two batteries-tablets format SR43 allow you to forget about charging for a long time.
Garmin Vivofit 4 is already available in the American Amazon for $ 80, and additional removable straps (available in two sizes) will cost $ 20 per piece. For comparison, the predecessor Vivofit 3 was at the start of $ 100. People's fitness bracelet Xiaomi Mi Band 2 will cost several times cheaper, but it is not recommended to swim with it (especially since the software can not determine this type of activity). The main drawback of the novelty is the absence of at least basic notifications of calls and messages that even Fitbit Flex 2 has without a display (costs $ 60 in the US).
