It wasn’t too long ago when Garmin announced the Venu for the local market. Today, the has company brought the Garmin Vivoactvie 4 to our shores as well. It is also available in two sizes, 40mm and 45mm.
In fact, the Garmin Vivoactive 4 is quite similar to the Venu. It has basically all of the features of the Venu, from its five-day battery life in watch mode to its health tracking tools, including the hydration and menstrual cycle tracker. It even sports the same animated on-screen workouts.
It also has an always-on display, like the Garmin Venu. But the display is also where the difference between the two lie. Where the Venu sports a 390 x 390 AMOLED display, the 45mm Vivoactive 4 instead has a 260 x 260 memory-in-pixel display. This allows the Vivoactive 4 to have a smaller battery while maintaining the same battery life as the Venu. Unfortunately, Garmin did not provide details of the 40mm model’s battery life.
The Garmin Vivoactive 4 comes with a price tag of RM1750. This applies to both the 40mm and 45mm variants. The company also says that it’s already available for sale at all Garmin authorised retailers.
