Battery life has been the Achilles’ heal of smart watches and fitness bands everywhere. Enter the old reliable Garmin Vivofit 4. The wearable can last up to 1 year in a single charge.
The Vivofit 4 is a solid fitness tracker for runners and fitness enthusiasts. Its a bit bare bones compared to similarly priced offerings, but what it does, it does it well.
The fitness band has an always-on color display, despite the 1-year battery life. Compared to others like it, the band tracks steps, distance, and calories burned, as well as sleep monitoring. You don’t get a GPS or a heart rate sensor, but you can sync it to Garmin Connect, an app where you can plan your daily activities, record workouts, do challenges, and more.
It also has Garmin’s Move IQ, which automatically detects the type of activity your doing based on your movements.
