Garmin Vivosmart 4 Review

TECH RADAR, OCTOBER 2018

Garmin is best known for its high-end running watches and sports-specific devices, like the Approach S10 GPS watch, which is built for golf. The brand’s wearables do a great job at tracking fitness, as well as analyzing that data so wannabe athletes know when they should be resting or pushing harder.

But you don’t need to be training for a marathon or raking in an eye-watering salary to get your hands on some Garmin smarts. Its Vivosport, Vivofit and Vivosmart ranges provide a more affordable selection of trackers that still focus on fitness, but give users an everyday option instead.

The latest entry to the Vivosmart line is the Garmin Vivosmart 4. It’s a slimline wearable that’s swim-friendly and comes loaded with fitness and well-being features that are designed to help you become more active, healthier and less prone to stress and burnout.

It does this through its range of sensors and features, including a Pulse Ox sensor that estimates blood oxygen saturation, an optical heart rate sensor, stress tracking, and guided breathing, plus Body Battery energy monitoring, which helps you figure out when you’re primed to be active or when you may need to rest.

We tried it out for two weeks to see whether it really delivers on its bold promises to keep us all active, rested and stress-free.
