Pulse Ox at Your Wrist
The Pulse Ox sensor on vívosmart 4 estimates your body’s blood oxygen saturation level. Your Pulse Ox measurements are dependent upon a number of factors, including your overall health and fitness. Checking your Pulse Ox can help gauge how your body is absorbing oxygen. Turn on the feature to gauge your SpO2 overnight, or use it to take a spot measurement anytime to learn more about your body.
Advanced Sleep Monitoring
Sleep is important to your overall health, well-being and physical performance. To give you an idea of how you’re sleeping, vívosmart 4 tracks your light, deep and REM stages of sleep, along with movement throughout the night. For added insight, turn on the Pulse Ox feature to view your blood oxygen levels during your sleep. When you wake up, you can easily review and compare your sleep stats in the Garmin Connect Mobile app.
Optimize Your Body’s Energy
Body Battery energy monitoring on vívosmart 4 uses a combination of stress, heart rate variability (HRV), sleep and activity data to gauge your body’s energy reserves at any moment, so you can plan your day to optimize times for activity and rest. A higher number indicates you’re ready to be active, while a lower number suggests you might need to relax and rest a bit before tackling a workout. Body Battery can also help you make sense of patterns throughout your weeks, so you can understand how the past few days have influenced how you’re feeling today.
All-day Stress Tracking
You most likely experience stress at some point in your day, but how much? Your vívosmart 4 lets you know when you are having a calm, balanced or stressful day and everything in between. Tracking your HRV (the time interval between each heartbeat), vívosmart 4 calculates and displays your stress level. There’s also an optional 'Relax Reminder' feature that you can turn on in the Garmin Connect app. If your stress level gets elevated during your day, it will provide a vibration alert on your wrist and display a message (“Take a moment to breathe?”) to let you know it’s time to relax. Use the relaxation breathing timer, which walks you through the Fourfold breathing technique, proven to calm your mind and body.
Daily Fitness and Wellness Monitoring
Using the Elevate heart rate data collected from your wrist, vívosmart 4 can — with a VO2 max estimate — give you an idea of your current fitness level. In general, as your aerobic fitness increases, your VO2 max does the same. Based on your VO2 max, vívosmart 4 is also able to estimate your fitness age — a stat that you may be able to decrease over time with hard work and exercise. For added insight, vívosmart 4 will notify you if your heart rate unexpectedly rises above a threshold you’ve set. If you’re inactive for more than 10 minutes and your heart rate stays above your set threshold, you’ll get an alert.
With a vívosmart 4 tracker on your wrist, you don’t have to choose between staying connected and staying more active. Check the weather, control your music, receive smart notifications, find your phone, even reply with preset text responses (Android only), and access social media notifications on your tracker’s display — all while keeping your smartphone stowed away.
Keep Track of Your Active Life
Your vívosmart 4 greets you each day with a personalized step goal. Then it tracks and displays your progress. In addition to steps, its activity tracking capabilities include floors climbed, calories burned, intensity minutes and more. You’ll also see a move bar and get vibration alerts to remind you when it’s time to get up and move.
Track Your Workouts
You can use the preloaded activity timers to keep track of your exercise times and more. When using the strength training activity, it estimates your exercises, reps and sets along with your work and rest times so you can leave the notebook at home. And if you forget to start a timer, the Move IQ feature on vívosmart 4 will automatically detect exercises such as walking, swimming, cycling and elliptical training — and it even starts timing select activities. When finished, your activities are pushed to Garmin Connect, our online community, where you can review, edit and share the activities with your connections and friends.

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
But, the HR readings are completely wrong when running --shows my running HR as either 20 or more than 400 which is impossible.
The pulse oxymeter works sporadically, and has never worked for the whole night.
I called Garmin about these issues but there was an hour long wait. So, I left my number for callback. Nobody called back! Twice!
Lot of issues with syncing the watch with the phone, takes quite a while sometimes shows everything as empty!
Eventually I get hold of someone. They ask me to pay for a new, replacement device that they will ship me and refund me the cost when I send the faulty device back. I did all of that. No new device appears for several days. So, I call them again. Takes for ever to reach anyone (40+ minute wait). Turns out, the device was not shipped at all! I ask to speak to the supervisor, but I am told the supervisor has already gone home (in the afternoon) so I can't!
Overall, pretty abysmal experience with the watch and customer care.
Update on December 28
The customer care finally called me and asked what were the problems. The person was very rude. He dismissed all of my concerns as either a) that is not a serious problem or b) that is a known issue and they are working on it!
Update January 7
New device arrived and I used it for two weeks. Still, no pulseoxymeter reading at all! Other small glitches too.
Called them several times, each time the call wait time is 30-40 minutes, and got through only once. The representative said there is nothing they can do about these problems!
Further, they won't refund me the faulty device I sent back to them because they can't find it!!!
So, now I am charged for two devices, none work.
This is really bad.

A veces me cuenta hasta un 30% mas de pasos de los que doy y en otras ocasiones estoy caminando y lanza la alerta por falta de movilidad. Tuve un fitbit y ese contaba pasos al subir a cualquier medio de transporte: auto, metro, llegando a sumar miles más que los que realmente di. Este vivosmart solo cuenta algunos cientos más .
En varias ocasiones me ha contado mal los pisos subidos y bajados, pero en una ocasión subí 18 y bajé 27 y me contó 9 subidos y 10 bajados.
El monitor de ritmo cardíaco es bueno, pero en varias ocasiones y estando sentado marca "ritmo cardíaco irregular" sin motivo alguno.
A diferencia del fitbit que detectaba automáticamente los periodos de sueño y el aparato te despertaba en el período que menos dormido estabas cercano a la hora que tu le programaras , en el vivosmart hay que configurarlos y la alarma suena y/o vibra sin importar que tan dormido estés. Muy decepcionante. Y si me duermo hasta más tarde de lo programado lanza alertas de que llevo mucho tiempo sin actividad física.
El "medidor de energía" es una verdadera vacilada, hay ocasiones que marca batería muy baja y me siento bastante bien y en otras me muestra carga de energía al 80% y me siento como si no hubiera dormido en tres días. Esto y lo de las mediciones del estrés son pura mercadotecnia, ignoro totalmente esos datos por ser totalmente inexactos.
En notificaciones es bueno, bastante bueno.
La conexión especial es poco intuitiva, hay que jugarle para que se conecte y pueda cargarse.
La aplicación movil se me hace poco intuitiva, pero se sincroniza sin necesidad de internet. El fitbit sin internet no se sincronizaba.
No es compatible con Samsung Health
En resumen no vale lo que cuesta y es una pena, porque creí que siendo la marca que es y el precio sería garantía de calidad.
Definitivamente no volvería a comprar.
Actualización: Totalmente decepcionado del producto y de la marca. Hace aproximadamente 3 días, el aro que enmarcaba el protector se le calló mientras me lavaba las manos, quedando la orilla de la pantalla con pegamento amarillo y dándole una apariencia de producto viejo, maltratado y de segunda mano. Para el precio que tiene la pulsera, la calidad de construcción, funcionamiento y precisión de los datos no es mala, es pésima!!!
Completamente arrepentido de haberla comprado, hubiera adquirido la Xiaomi o de plano irme por el Galaxy Watch 2 o algún otro producto que tuviera mejores comentarios.
Le doy una estrella porque no hay menos. 😤
About two weeks into owning the Vivosmart while going for a run, I paused the activity tracker to have a conversation with a friend of mine, after the conversation I unpaused the activity and continued. Once done the run I tried to get the device off of activity mode; however it was stuck. It seemed like a programming error, it would not allow for the session to be terminated and saved. Unfortunately I could not dock the watch since my charger was at home and the device continued on activity mode between 7am - 4pm (at which point the battery drained considerable quicker than normal and by 4pm no longer had charge).
This is the point and time the device’s battery life went from excellent (4-5 days) to horrible. (less than 8 hours).
Troubleshooting I’ve done:
Reset the device to factory settings
Reloaded app onto phone and started at factory settings
Turned off Bluetooth
Display brightness (lowest)
Activity Tracking (minimum)
Heart Rate Monitor Off
OX sensor off
Vibration (low or off)
Music link off, camera link off
Sleep tracking off (until bed)
Cycled the battery (let battery drain completely then recharge fully)
Waited a week to see if this battery issue would resolve with time
Motion Gesture control off (device only displays when double tapped)
At this point using my Vivosmart properly requires an hour charge in the morning (5-6am) and another hour to hour and a half charge in the afternoon (3-4:30pm). Even then I find that I'm running low on battery power.
Very disappointed and what might be more frustrating is trying to use Garmin's technical support. They offer a chat function that does not load (even during normal technical support hours), an email form which does not indicate whether or not a message has been sent and extremely long wait times on the phone for a representative who lists out exactly what you have already tried and not provide any solutions.
Garmin you can do better.
The battery life isn't great either. I started off with all the bells and whistles turned on to see which ones I wanted to use, fully understanding that turning them all on would sap the battery, which it did. I was charging every 4 days. Once I whittled down the features to steps, stairs, sleep and heartrate, I found that that battery usage only improved moderately - I was charging every 5-6 days instead.
I'm not sure how accurate the staircase tracker is. I was constantly being congratulated on completing X # of staircases after having not gone up a single flight. Or even a hill...
I am now no longer using my Vivosmart 4 at all as the faceplate has popped off. This is where the cheap feeling comes in. I have used Fitbit, cheap Asian knockoffs and this Garmin. Out of all of them, this one feels the cheapest in the way it's built.
now that my device is damaged to the point that I probably shouldn't use it, I'm examining my options. Amazon's return window is up and a quick browse of the Garmin website states that they replace devices with other refurbished devices. Doesn't appear that refunds are offered either
