You heard me. Garmin\u2019s vivofit 4 fitness tracker has one whole year of battery life. That\u2019s 365 days, 8,760 hours or 525,600 minutes between charges. It\u2019s mighty impressive when you consider a smartphone needs to be charged once, maybe twice a day.\r\n\r\nVivofit 4 is also Garmin\u2019s slimmest wearable to date. It\u2019s designed to be worn 24\/7 with an always-on display, comfortable band and a swim and shower safe build.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\u201cAn activity tracker is only as effective as how often you wear it, and this is where the v\u00edvofit 4 really shines,\u201d said Adam Howarth, General Manager Garmin Australasia. \u201cIt\u2019s the ideal device for customers who want something reliable that they don\u2019t need to hassle with or take off to recharge.\u201d\r\n\r\nv\u00edvofit 4 tracks steps and encourages physical activity with a coloured move bar that fills up when you have been stationary for too long. It also assigns daily step goals based on current activity levels, gradually nudging you toward a healthier, more active lifestyle.\r\n\r\nThe wearable classifies activities such as walking, running, biking and swimming. It can also be used as a slim everyday watch, complete with a countdown timer, stopwatch, multiple alarms, weather updates and even Find My Phone.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nThrough the newly redesigned Garmin Connect, you can filter and customise data, connect with friends, join challenges and customise watch faces with various colours, themes and text.\r\n\r\nThe v\u00edvofit 4 will be available in White Lime, Green Speckled and Black colourways for RRP AU$159. Interchangeable accessory bands are sold separately.\r\n\r\nThe other big Garmin news is that the tech brand is set to launch its Forerunner 645 smartwatch which finally adds integrated music and payments.\r\nCheck it out\r\nHave you subscribed to Man of Many?
