Just purchased and set up a Garmin Vivosmart 4 to replace my Fitbit Charge 3 that was no longer working - after only 10 months!! Hoping that this one last longer than that. Still figuring things out but I'm looking forward to getting started with it.

I have the VivoActive 3. Is that what you're upgrading from? Or new to this device? I do love mine. I'm a runner, and I use all its functionality for that, but I like also having the "real life" stuff like text messages, heart rate, steps count, sleep monitor, etc. And I like that you can customize it by adding apps from the website. I am getting into longer ultra running and am just starting to have issues with battery life if I get beyond about 6 hours of run tracking. Not sure if 4 has extended battery life though?

Mine is still pretty new and definitely all I need otherwise, so I'll be researching ways to save battery (maybe turning off some features during long runs?) rather than upgrade. But if you make the jump, I'd love to know what's new and exciting about 4.

I'm looking to upgrade my tracker. What your take on the Garmin 4?

Progress may be slow, but it happens!
No such thing as last place only finishers.
