Garmin Vivosmart 4 review

Garmin Vivosmart 4 review: great for sleep and casual fitness tracking


Garmin Vivosmart 4 takes across all the fitness features of its predecessors and slaps on a blood oxygen sensor and Body Battery.

Oxygen sensor ; Body Battery metric ; Detailed sleep tracking ; Slim, lightweight design ; Long battery life

Display is very narrow

All in all, this is a decent little fitness band that has plenty to offer. A casual user will find most things they need for 24/7 activity monitoring. Garmin has a lot of experience in building such products which means you can be confident the data is...

Garmin Vivosmart 4 review: An affordable band for easy fitness, SpO2 data


The $129 band looks better and tracks more than any previous Vivosmart device.

Attractive, lightweight design.

Not as many on-device workouts to track.

In comparison to the Fitbit Alta HR, the Vivosmart 4 has better fitness chops, more smartwatch-like features, and a better design (save for its immovable bands). But some may want to spend the extra $20 for the Fitbit Charge 3 because its larger screen...

Garmin Vivosmart 4 Review: Great for Sleep, Falls Short on Fitness


The Garmin Vivosmart 4 proves that fitness trackers still have plenty to offer, even if they can't give you on-the-go EKG readings like the new $399 Apple Watch can. With stylish looks and advanced sleep tracking, Garmin's Vivosmart 4 packs advanced...

Slim, stylish design ; Body Battery feature ; Advanced health tools

Inaccurate run tracking ; Small, unresponsive screen

Tracking sleep, stress and energy levels is endlessly interesting with the sleek, stylish Vivosmart 4, but an unresponsive display and inaccurate run tracking proved frustrating.

Garmin Vivosmart 4 review


It tells you how much energy you do (or don't) have

Slim design ; Long-lasting battery ; Body Battery metric

Small screen ; Screen unresponsive at times ; No GPS

Garmin proves it doesn’t just cater for serious athletes with the Vivosmart 4, an everyday wear tracker that can monitor heart rate, blood oxygen levels and energy throughout the day at a relatively affordable price.

Brilliant product


Bought this to replace an alternativevmake. Did a lot of research and read reviews and am so glad I did. Excellent quality, the band is softer and more comfortable, easy to read in sunlight and such a coddle to set up.
