The vivoactive 4S tracks your heart rate while at rest and during workouts. At rest, constant samples of your heart rate are recorded in order to alert you if your heart rate stays elevated for a certain period of time. When working out, the heart rate monitor helps you gauge how much effort you gave to each exercise.
After a night’s sleep, the vivoactive 4S provides you with a detailed breakdown of your light, deep, and REM sleep stages, as well as your Pulse Ox readings and respiration data.
The watch can track your energy levels throughout the day, so you’ll know the best times for activity and rest.
Staying hydrated is essential, and the vivoactive 4S will remind you to drink some water based on your manually-entered water intake logs. You can even see how consistently hydrated you are from day to day.
Menstrual Cycle Tracking
The vivoactive 4S lets you track your month-to-month menstrual cycle and log physical and emotional symptoms. You can also learn about training and nutrition during each phase of your cycle. Your cycle tracking info is available right on the watch face, where you’ll be able to see period reminders, cycle details, and your logged symptoms for the day.
The vivoactive 4S can track how well you’re breathing throughout the day, including while you sleep, during breathwork, and while performing yoga activities.
The vivoactive 4S lets you know if you’re having a calm, balanced, or stressful day. If your day becomes too stressful, the smartwatch will provide relax reminders and prompt you to perform a short breathing activity.
Safety & Tracking
When paired with your smartphones, the vivoactive 4S can send your location to your contacts either manually, or when outside, automatically via built-in incident detection.
