  • How do you calibrate the heart rato sensor, i have the same watch and the HR frequency is inaccurate.

  • Ive only had the vivo4 a few days but had the vivo3 for a year. The vivo 3 was great and did everything it was supposed to. The only thing I didn’t like was the poor screen brightness. While I’m still getting accustomed to the vivo 4, 1st impression is it’s as good as the 3 with some very cool upgrades it has a a much brighter screen.

  • Hey Garmin,

    We have just recently bought two Vivosmart 4’s. One works perfectly with iOS notifications and the other does not, we’ve tried trouble shooting the Bluetooth, deleting the app, turning off the phone, disconnecting and reconnecting, forgetting the device, etc. Making sure permissions are allowed and notifications are switched on. No matter what we try we can’t figure out a solution, can you offer any help?

  • Looks like device doesn't monitor my swimming activity. My swimming is being counted as steps. Help please!

  • Can you set vibration alarms on this watch like you could with the gamin vivo active hr??? Also with the swimming, can you see how many laps you have swum on the device whilst in the pool????

  • Wonderful review! The new touchscreen is wicked responsive and the very bright. I like how the device automatically goes into DND (do not disturb) mode while sleeping.

  • hello everyone! i intend use Garmin Vivosmart 4 to get information about calories, sleep, stress … I’m interested in how reliable these info are? I wish to make correct nutrition, better sleep … Is safe to take information and do some changes? thank you

  • Got mine yesterday, looks cool as I like slim version trackers. clean app interface but the double tap on the screen is like my moody dog does not work all the time. Please fix the touchscreen issue. It’s updated to v2.40
