Garmin® introduces the vívofit® 4 activity tracker
Singapore, 09 February 2018 – Garmin Singapore today announced the vívofit 4, a daily activity tracker with an incredible 1+ year battery life – no charging necessary – and a sunlight-readable, always-on color display. Designed for 24/7 wearability, the vívofit 4 is swim- and shower-safe and features a sleek, comfortable band. The vívofit 4 is ready to go right out of the box and can be paired with a smartphone for additional features. Easy to set up and simple to operate, all that’s left is to put it on and go.
“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 Mr. Engelhard (Al) Sundoro, Managing Director, Garmin South Asia. “It’s the ideal device for customers who want something reliable that they don’t need to hassle with or take off to recharge.”
Stay active everyday with the vívofit 4
Right out of the box, the vívofit 4 starts tracking steps and encourages users to stay active with a colored move bar that fills up when a user has been stationary for too long. It also assigns daily step goals based on current activity levels which automatically adjust to the user, gradually nudging them toward a healthier, more active lifestyle.
For those customers looking for more than just basic activity tracking, the vívofit 4 can be paired with a smartphone, adding even more functionality and options, such as tracking sleep, intensity minutes and more. Forget to start or stop a timed activity? Thanks to Move IQ, 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.
Users can use the vívofit 4 as their everyday watch, complete with a countdown timer, stopwatch and multiple alarms. A weather widget gives a quick, illustrated look at the day’s weather. The vívofit 4 even includes Find My Phone for those who need a little extra help keeping track of their smartphone.
Make your vívofit 4 your own with the Garmin Connect app
Through the Garmin Connect app, users can customise the vívofit 4 with various watch faces, color themes and personalised text, such as an emergency contact or motivational phrase. Interchangeable accessory bands (sold separately) make it easy to switch up colors and styles to match any mood or outfit.
Get connected with family, friends and the Garmin community
Within the newly redesigned Garmin Connect, a free online community, it is easier than ever to get an at- a-glance look at important stats like steps and sleep. Users can filter and customise their data so that they are only seeing what is most relevant. Users can connect with friends and family to motivate one another, join challenges, engage in friendly competitions and more. And speaking of competitions, vívofit 4 users with children who own vívofit jr. 2 devices can compete against one another using the Toe-to-ToeTM timed step competition feature to determine who is clearing the table that night. The vívofit 4 will periodically sync with Garmin Connect throughout the day.
