Black Friday has just ended, but that doesn't mean the deals are over. At this time of the year they keep coming, which is perfect to fulfill the gifts from Santa Claus or the Three Wise Men. And I'm not just saying that for poder to give to others... also to give to yourself when you don't get your gifts right.
What am I bringing today? Well "only" the Garmin Vivoactive 4 and 4S with about 80€ off their RRP. That's early, but it's more than a 25% discount.
Here is the offer for the Garmin Vivoactive 4 on Amazon Germany.
You only have to compare the price with other stores to see that the discount is significant. Maybe not the 80€ because it has already been dropping in price, but it is much lower than what 1TP10We can buy it here.
Do you have a small wrist and prefer something a little smaller? Then you also have the Garmin Vivoactive 4S at a discounted price, with a dial diameter of 40mm (instead of the 45mm of the larger model). Although in this case the offer is less "greedy" in price, but it is interesting if you want the black color (which is not the one that is at a good price in Spain).
If you are after a Garmin Vivoactive 4 this is your chance. This is not a one-time offer but a price drop by Amazon Germany, so I don't know how long it will be in effect.
Although it is from Amazon Germany, you can use the same account you use in Spain, the only thing you should keep in mind is that you will have to pay shipping costs, because the Amazon Prime subscription is exclusively for the country in which you are subscribed. Do not worry, they are only about 6 € of expenses, it more than compensates for the price of the watch.
And you don't have to worry about warranty. First of all because Garmin offers European warranty, so purchases in Germany are fully covered. But regardless of that, Amazon is going to supply you with an invoice from Amazon Spain (even if we buy in Germany), so you are fully covered. In fact they will most likely ship the watch directly from Amazon's warehouse in Spain.
As for the Garmin Vivoactive 4, it is the latest exponent of the "fitness" range of Garmin. It is not as focused on running and pure performance as the Forerunner, but it is perfect for those who want a watch to practice sport (and varied sports) without worrying too much about times or training load.
Compared to the Garmin FR245 (its most direct rival within the brand) the Vivoactive 4 is somewhat more complete. It has Garmin Pay for poder to make wireless payments - as long as your bank card is compatible, WiFi and music playback on all models (including synchronization with Spotify to play your lists offline).
Also barometric altimeterThe new altitude data is a great way to keep track of the number of floors climbed, so in addition to counting the number of floors climbed, you will also have real altitude data while you are training.
What it doesn't have over the iconic Forerunner are advanced training metrics and route navigation, although you do have the option of using Connect IQ apps.
Which one is the most recommendable? As I say if you are a pure runner and you mark your season based on goals for different races probably the Forerunner is a better option. But if what you like is to practice sport in general (gym, swimming, some running, walking, etc) the Vivoactive 4 will leave you totally satisfied and you have those other added benefits.
Anyway, this is a quick summary. If you want to know all the details, the best thing to do is to take a look at the complete test where you will see all the features that you must take into account of the Garmin Vivoactive 4.
So you know, if the Vivoactive 4 fits what you are looking for take advantage of the offer, because it is frankly good.
