Moreover, the Garmin vivofit 4 also tracks your intensity minutes as well as the calories you have burned. Besides, it also comes with a colored move bar that fills up when you haven’t walked for a while.

The bands of the Garmin vivofit 4 are interchangeable which means you can change them as and when you want. However, they are sold separately so you will have to shell out extra money for that.
