I have this watch. It depends what you're goals are. If you're an extreme hiker, it probably doesn't have all the features you might want like weather prediction.
I use this watch for general fitness like jogging, swimming and biking. I use it for swimming to track my stats like strokes and distance. For jogging, I can trace a map and listen to music without my phone. For road biking, I was able to get a 3rd party turn by turn navigation. I am able to draw out a map and put that my on my watch. The watch will buzz to make a right or left turn with two buzzes. I only tried this once so far but it worked pretty well.
Battery lasts about 6 days on stand by and much shorter if you use active features like tracing a run and listening to music.

This deal is OK. $300 is normal price for a vivoactive 4 so you have to really want 3 bands and generic bluetooth earbuds.

His view is that it's nice but there's not enough here to justify buying this over a vivoactive 3 music if you already have one.

features :
GPS
optical heart rate sensor
you can control your phone's music player or load up music onto the watch and listen via bluetooth
garmin connect is a decent fitness app and is compatible w strava, the rosetta stone of fitness apps
phone notifications
garmin pay
garmin connectiq (garmin watch apps basically)
HR broadcast in ANT+ (this is not relevant to must people)
sleep tracking

Vivoactive is Garmin's fitness/smartwatch watch line. The forerunner line is for more serious data driven runners and cyclists. The instinct is for OPERATORS and g-shock enthusiasts.

The vivoactive 3 music is about $200.and I think it can tick all of the checkboxes that th 4 offers. If you run w your phone most of the time and dont need music on the actual watch the Vivoactive 3 is about 130ish.
I have been shopping for a replacement watch for my wife's samsung gear fitness watch for a while and I ended up getting a vivoctive 3 for her.

It depends on if you want touchscreen. I used to think touchscreen was the best till I tried the fenix and I much prefer the button operation vs touch screen.

This is great watch I just wish it came in button option vs touch screen, but its general all around watch doesn't have all the options Garmin offers for any specific activity. This is like a baby fenix. Fenix offers basically everything they have. Forerunners offer all their running options, Approach offers all their golf options, Vivoactive are a little bit of everything.

So depends on what you will be doing.. if running I prefer the Forerunner 245 or 945 if have the funds. For general use Vivoactive 4 is great especially if you dont mind or prefer touchscreen.

For the record I have tried/owned Fenix6, Fenix6 pro, Venu, Vivoactive 4, forerunner 235.

The Fitbit Versa 2 is my first smartwatch and the 4+ day battery life is a must have. However, I'm starting to think the fitness stats aren't the most accurate. Hell, my heartrate never goes above 100 while I'm running and I know I'm not in that good of shape.

The Galaxy Active 2 looks great, but the 24 hour battery life kills it IMO.

Thanks for your reply.

I have this watch and it's fantastic. Huge improvement over the VivoActive 3, which I always had connection issues with on iOS.

Would you recommend the Fenix 5x or Venu or Vivoactive for mountain biking and hiking? 5x is cheap right now

If thats the primary purpose I would take 5x due to having maps and just being more sturdy built will handle the outdoors better. Now if you dont care about maps I would take Vivoactive 4 because it will get you everything you need.

Also the Venu and Vivoactive 4 have the new updated sensors for HR and Oxygen. I also think the body battery is pretty cool feature which only the newer ones have.

Another watch to consider is the 935 can be gotten cheap its running watch but they did pack a lot of other features. Or even the garmin instinct if want primarily outdoor watch at low price.

I've been using the garmin instinct for almost 6 months now. Doesnt have music but does every thing else and is very durable if your clumsy. Each charge lasts me 2 weeks with active tracking on during runs.

how is the pricing on this. I see REI has it for about the same price and stacked with current REI member discount (20%) puts the base watch at 240.00 (https://www.rei.com/product/16935...martwatch) + 20% discount (https://www.rei.com/coupon) I guess you miss out on the extra bands and head phones.
