Fitness tracking is slowing gaining pace in India and keeping that in view, American wearable company Garmin has launched the Vivofit 4 in India. The fitness band, which was unveiled last year, is exclusively available via Amazon India for a price of ₹4,999.
One of the biggest highlights of the Garmin Vivofit 4 is that it is powered by two regular wristwatch batteries and users will not have to break the flow of their pursuit of fitness for recharging the device. The company claims that Vivofit 4 has a year-long battery backup which means that you can let go of all worries about replacing the batteries frequently.
Garmin Vivofit 4 features a 0.61-inch color display with a resolution of 88x88p. Buyers get a choice between Black, White, and Black Speckle colors of the silicone wristband. The fitness tracker weighs only 25 grams which means it’ll barely add any weight to your wrist. Since the screen does not support touch, the Vivofit 4 comes features a button beneath the screen to cycle between different modes.
The fitness tracker is designed to track the number of steps taken, calories burnt, as well as monitor the quality of sleep. It also allows you to set and keep a tab on personalized fitness goals on a daily basis. It is also equipped with an alarm clock as well as a stopwatch. The company claims that the fitness band features a technology called “Garmin Move IQ” which can automatically sense your physical activities including walking, running, swimming, biking, or using an elliptical trainer.
The Garmin Vivofit 4 is compatible with both iOS and Android smartphones. Users can use the Garmin Connect app for syncing information about the activities with the smartphone. The companion app can also be used for setting goals and challenging friends over social media. The app also comes to use if you want to change the color theme or the watch faces, or to add text on the welcome screen.
Apart from the features noted above, Garmin Vivofit 4 can be used to check the weather or locate your smartphone. Lastly, the fitness band also has a special feature for kids which requires them to walk with their toes joined.
