Garmin® introduces the vívofit® 4 activity tracker

Slimmer than ever with an always-on color display and 1+ year battery life

Garmin International Inc., a unit of Garmin Ltd. (NASDAQ: GRMN), today
announced the vívofit
, a daily activity tracker1 with an incredible 1+ year
battery life – no charging necessary – and a sunlight-readable,
always-on color display. Designed for 24/7 wearability, the vívofit 4 is
swim- and shower-safe and features a sleek, comfortable band. The
vívofit 4 is ready to go right out of the box, and can be paired with a
smartphone for additional features. Easy to set up and simple to
operate, all that’s left is to put it on and go.

“An activity tracker is only as effective as how often you wear it, and
this is where the vívofit 4 really shines – you can set it and forget
it,” said Dan Bartel, Garmin vice president of worldwide sales. “It’s
the ideal device for customers who want something reliable that they
don’t need to hassle with or take off to recharge.”

Right out of the box, the vívofit 4 starts tracking steps and encourages
users to stay active with a colored move bar that fills up when a user
has been stationary for too long. It also assigns daily step goals based
on current activity levels which automatically adjust to the user,
gradually nudging them toward a healthier, more active lifestyle.

For those customers looking for more than just basic activity tracking,
the vívofit 4 can be paired with a smartphone, adding even more
functionality and options, such as tracking sleep, intensity minutes and
more. Forget to start or stop a timed activity? Thanks to Move IQ, the
vívofit 4 is able to detect changes in a user’s movement and
automatically capture and classify activities such as walking, running,
biking, swimming and using an elliptical. Users can use the vívofit 4 as
their everyday watch, complete with a countdown timer, stopwatch and
multiple alarms. A weather widget gives a quick, illustrated look at the
day’s weather. The vívofit 4 even includes Find My Phone for those who
need a little extra help keeping track of their smartphone.

Through the Garmin Connect app, users can customize the vívofit 4 with
various watch faces, color themes and personalized text, such as an
emergency contact or motivational phrase. Interchangeable accessory
bands (sold separately) make it easy to switch up colors and styles to
match any mood or outfit.

Within the newly redesigned Garmin Connect, a free online community, it
is easier than ever to get an at-a-glance look at important stats like
steps and sleep. Users can filter and customize their data so that they
are only seeing what is most relevant. Users can connect with friends
and family to motivate one another, join challenges, engage in friendly
competitions and more. And speaking of competitions, vívofit 4 users
with children who own vívofit
jr. 2
devices can compete against one another using the Toe-to-ToeTM
timed step competition feature to determine who is clearing the table
that night. The vívofit 4 will periodically sync with Garmin Connect
throughout the day.

The vívofit 4 is available in White (S/M), Limegreen Speckled (S/M) and
Black (S/M and L) for a suggested retail price of $79.99, available on today. Interchangeable accessory bands are available in a
Speckled Merlot and Speckled Navy combo pack (S/M) for $29.99. Accessory
bands in Speckled Black (S/M), White (S/M) and Black (S/M and L) are
available for individual purchase for a suggested retail price of $19.99.
