Excellent fitness tracker with limited smartwatch features
Prior to buying the Vivoactive 4 I had a Fitbit Charge 4 however after the strap broke where it joins the watch and it couldn't be repaired (this was definitely a design fault in the Charge 4) I decided to switch to a Garmin Vivoactive 4.
The Fitbit was good, offering excellent sleep tracking which the Garmin lacks (more on that later) however it was let down by poor screen visibility as you couldn't read it at all in bright light, variable GPS tracking and the aforementioned strap issue.
The Garmin is better in almost all respects;

Should be call 'Garbage NotAcurate'
I purchased this on the 1st of May this year. The accuracy of most of its vital functions are that inaccurate and it's screen definition that bad I sold it on Facebook the next day.
I literally live 459m above sea level on a mountain, the watch danced between +4m to -54m.
It continually showed a heartbeat of 88bpm, seemingly frozen, while the app on the phone seemed to track real time.
Again the Sp02 % seemingly frozen at 95% showed more accurately over a 24hr on the mobile app.
Then there's the terrible screen, it's does display and ra...nge of colours but only just. There's little distinguishable difference between say pink, yellow orange etc, they're all a very slightly different variation but my kids younger eyes couldn't tell the difference between the colours either. Even worse is the screen definition or clarity if you will.
Purchased in May 2021 at Harvey Norman for $445.00.
