Look, if you're looking for a device like this you have a choice: you can buy a true "smartwatch" with a bright and shiny display, the ability to track your steps (Apple/Samsung), read your emails . . and a crummy battery life. Or you can buy a fitness devise with Smartwatch features . . . like a Garmin.
I choose Garmin. I bought the 40mm size because it looks like a regular watch and doesn't look goofy with dressier styles. No, it doesn't have the bright AMOLED display like the Apples and Samsungs, but it does have the "always on" display which is easy to read in any light. In dark areas, you can program it to brighten with a wrist snap or a tap. Again, it's like a regular watch in that way - which for me is a must. And yes, you can customize the face or download others with the Garmin IQ app. Works fine for me.
It's the fitness innards where Garmin really shines, and it tracks damn near every bodily function you have. Steps is just the beginning. Lots of pre-programmed workouts along with heart rate and Pulse Ox monitoring. Garmin just buries the competition in the fitness arena, if that's important to you.
Yes, you can read texts etc but . . . well, I have a phone for that. No, I don't want to read emails on my watch. The Garmin VA2 looks and acts like a real watch. It's just smarter and the fitness stuff cannot be beat. And the battery life buries the Apples and the Samsungs. I get 2-3 days with just the basics on.
If you don't care much about the fitness criteria and want a wrist display to parrot your phone . . . get thee to the Apple store. Just make sure you bring your charger everywhere. If you want a solid smart-ish watch that looks classy and is packed with health and fitness utilities . . . get the Garmin.
No regrets here.
I was looking for a smartwatch that could download spotify playlists, connect to bluetooth headphones, GPS tracking during runs / hikes, long battery life, and a fast non-laggy touch screen interface. Been wearing the watch for about a week now, here are my impressions thus far:
-Connecting the watch to my phone and wifi to download my spotify playlists was fairly easy and didn't take much time.
-I use a pair of Samsung Galaxy Buds for headphones. Pairing them with the watch was extremely easy.
-When playing music from the watch, there are almost no issues with connectivity. Over the course of 1.5hrs, I'll maybe have a few milliseconds where the music is choppy. Almost not worth mentioning but wanted to in case others are having issues.
-GPS tracking so far seems to be great, no issues here.
-Battery life when not listening to music is great. Often only uses up 5-8% over a 10-12 hour period.
-Battery life when listening to music and connected to bluetooth headphones could be better. Over a 2 hour period of listening to music I saw the battery drain ~30%. Good enough for me, but could be better and is the reason I gave 4 instead of 5 stars.
-Touch screen is very responsive and I have not had any issues with lag at all.
-The watch has a ton of features and a lot of applications / widgets. It can be a little overwhelming at first trying to navigate but within an hour of first wearing the watch, I felt comfortable with where everything was.

That was the start of my issues with this watch. If you take a look at the Garmin forums for issues with the Vivoactive 4, you'll find that there are many glaring issues. Unfortunately, I didn't discover that until I booted the thing up and was puzzled by error messages. The good news they give you a month to return it.
1. Loading music from Spotify just doesn't work on some watches. This is a known issue, there are posts on the Garmin forums going back months detailing that when people try to load music the watch says it can't find a wifi network. Not a fixable problem. Some said they have had success going to a friends house to use their wifi.
2. GPS can take a very long time to connect. For example, I tried to go for a run and left the watch on "wait for gps signal" for 40 minutes before giving up.
3. The sleep tracker is bad. The one night that I wore it I got a solid 7 hours. It said I got 4 hours and no REM sleep.
4. I expected WAY more from the watch faces. This thing is $500 CAD once taxes are included and the watch faces look worse than the flip phone I had a decade ago. I'm being entirely serious.
5. This one is a bit niche, but the training programs are way too remedial. If you run more than 40k a week then you are beyond the highest level possible for their 10k training program. If you're serious enough about running to buy a garmin, you'll probably be running more than 40k a week at some point.
I'm out of shape. I sweat a lot. The charge would lose my heart rate all the time. I'd go from 153 bpm to 100 for 2-3 min and back to 153+.
Dual HRM with the Garmin solves that problem.
I mostly do treadmill walks. Starting those on the garmin is easy. A button, indoor walk in the favorites, A button, the time starts, Dual HRM reconnects and we're on!
Doing this with the Charge was annoying as most of the time before I could get the treadmill to speed the screen would timeout and hey, no way to change it!
Another thing is the Garmin does use normal 22mm band. If you have big wrists you can change them to something bigger than 8.2"
So far the battery life isn't too bad even with using the OX sensor from 10pm to 7am. I'm charging it every 3 days where with the Charge I'd get 4-5days.
That's all I can think of. I'll update as I go.
Reviewed in Canada on September 28, 2020
The charging connection to the watch itself is poorly engineered and will likely wear out fairly quickly with normal use.
GPS receiver is terrible which is surprising since Garmin has made some phenomenal aircraft GPS/NAV receivers.
The always on screen is good. It is easy to see in the sun, unlike AMOLED screens. It also uses very low battery power.
The backlight is a bit on the ugly side.
The screen responsiveness is not great. Frequently requires two or three swipes before it responds.
Garmin Pay does not work at all in Canada with any of the five big banks and there is no other option for this feature.
Apps are lacking in variety and downloading from the connect app is very slow.
The body is very plasticy and disappointing when you consider that you are paying much more than you would for another brand with a stainless steel or aluminum body. Garmin really cheaped out here... more profit for them I guess.
Overall, the watch feels like 2000s technology and is wayyy overpriced for what you are getting.
