Garmin today announced a new activity tracker at IFA 2018 called the vivosmart 4. It does what you would normally expect from an activity tracker, and then some. The device has a wrist-based pulse OX sense which enables it to allow users to keep an eye on their blood oxygen saturation levels.
The blood oxygen saturation level metric will help users better understand their sleep quality. The tracker also brings a Body Battery energy monitor which estimates the body’s energy reserves.
It uses a combination of data gathered from stress, heart rate variability, sleep, and activity. This additional information will let users ascertain how the behaviors and activities of the past few days influence how they feel at a given moment.
The vivosmart 4 packs Garmin’s new advanced sleep monitoring feature which can measure light, deep, and REM stages of sleep along with movement throughout the night.
The company calls the vivosmart 4 its most “fashionable wristband tracker to date.” It has an ultra-slim profile and will be avaialble in multiple colors with metal trim accents in gold, silver, and rose gold. It’s safe to use in the pool and shower while the battery can last up to seven days between charges.
The vivosmart 4 will soon be available for purchase. Garmin has notified a suggested retail price of $129.99 for this wearable device.
