Garmin announces vívosmart 4

Garmin has announced the vívosmart 4, a smart activity tracker that introduces a wrist-based pulse ox sensor. 

The vívosmart 4 also features a Body Battery energy monitor that estimates the body’s energy reserves, letting users know the optimal time for activity and rest.

“Sleep quality plays a critical role in your overall physical health,” said Adam Howarth, General Manager Garmin Australasia.

“Poor sleep quality may contribute to the development of significant chronic conditions. With its slim design, the vívosmart 4 is comfortable to wear at night and pulse ox provides customers with information they can use to improve their health.”

Garmin’s new advanced sleep monitoring estimates light, deep and REM stages of sleep, along with movement throughout the night. Users can check their sleep stats in the Garmin Connect mobile app.
