Deal: The Garmin Vivosmart 4 is just $99.99 right now

If you're after a cheap Garmin that does more than the norm, the Garmin Vivosmart 4 lives up to its name. It's currently available for a fraction under $100 with a saving of $30. This is just a few cents more than its lowest-ever price, and the first discount in a long while.

The good news is that the entire range of colours have dropped to $99.99, whereas previously it was only the black model. So if you want to inject a bit of color, this is a great deal.

So what sets the Vivosmart 4 apart from other fitness tracker rivals? The two big features are a pulse oxygen sensor and what Garmin calls 'Body Battery'.
In a nutshell, the pulse oxygen sensor looks at the oxygen saturation in your blood. Our Vivosmart 4 review stated: "For someone who’s healthy, pulse ox is going to be something you check rarely, but for someone suffering from sleep apnea or AFib, the Vivosmart 4 could be a way to detect the signs."

Body battery, on the other hand, gives you an indication of just what condition your body is in during the day, taking into account the impact of both exercise and stress. If you want a better understanding of whether you should fit in an extra workout or have a recovery day, it's a helpful metric.

The Biggest Concerns. Despite the positives, there are some concerns about virtual reality. For example, some critics point out health and safety issues. If the technology is not used properly, users might suffer from health issues like seizures and other major discomfort. Some people could also trip and fall. There are also major privacy concerns with virtual reality. Some people fear that the headsets could lead to government surveillance, although there is no proof of that as of yet.

The Vivosmart 4 isn't going to be the best choice for anyone more serious about their outdoor workouts, however. That's mainly because it doesn't have built-in GPS or the ability to use your phone's for more accurate distance and pace metrics.


But if you're looking for a fitness tracker that does more than the average, it's a good choice especially considering the new price.
