- Features 1+ year battery life

Get up and get moving with vívofit 2. It’s the only activity tracker with a 1+ year battery life and backlit display. It even reminds you to stay active throughout your day with its move bar with audible alert that lets you know when you’ve been idle for an hour or longer.
Tells Time and “Time to Move”
Research shows prolonged periods of inactivity such as sitting at a desk decreases your body’s production of fat-burning enzymes. You can reverse that effect by taking frequent, short walk breaks throughout your day. And while you might lose track of time and forget to move, vívofit 2 knows. A red move bar appears on the display and a gentle alert sounds after one hour of inactivity. The move bar builds every 15 minutes until you reset it by walking for a couple of minutes. Don’t want to be bothered with a beep every hour? Set up your compatible mobile device to vibrate as your cue to move.
vívofit 2 follows your progress 24/7 and shows your steps, calories, distance and time of day on its easy-to-read, backlit display. Set the sleep mode when you go to bed and it will monitor your rest. At Garmin Connect, you can see your total sleep hours as well as periods of movement and restful sleep. vívofit 2 is water-resistant¹, so you can shower or get caught in the rain, worry-free. And thanks to its 1+ year battery life, you can keep this activity tracker on your wrist around the clock, helping you turn good intentions into lifelong habits. The band is soft and flexible and features a quarter-turn buckle that secures it to your wrist. Optional accessory bands in various color schemes let you coordinate your vívofit to your wardrobe.
Personalized Daily Goals
vívofit 2 learns your current activity level, then assigns an attainable daily goal. As you meet your milestones, vívofit 2 will adjust your goal for the next day, gradually nudging you toward a healthier lifestyle. At Garmin Connect, our free online fitness community, you can earn virtual badges and view your progress.
When you’re ready to take the next steps toward better health, vívofit 2 has additional features to keep you motivated. Use the activity timer to record a timed activity, such as a walk or run, which can be saved and sent to Garmin Connect. You can also pair vívofit 2 with a heart rate monitor² during fitness activities, such as a run or a cardio class at the gym, to record your heart rate and zone data and get more accurate calorie burn information. For detailed calorie tracking, you can create an account at MyFitnessPal and link it to your Garmin Connect account. This allows you to compare calories consumed to your total calories burned, which vívofit 2 records throughout the day.
Throughout your day, vívofit 2 automatically syncs to Garmin Connect, where you can see a complete picture of your progress, join online challenges and earn virtual badges for extra motivation. It's so simple to get started. After you are set up, access our free online community from your computer or on your compatible mobile device³ with the Garmin Connect Mobile app.

If audible alerts don’t matter much to you, this device is fantastic. But I upgraded from the original Vivofit because of the new audible alerts, and I’m very disappointed. I was really happy with the original Vivofit except for 2 things – I couldn't see it in the dark and there were no alerts when the inactivity bar gets full. When I learned that both of those issues were fixed with the Vivofit 2, I couldn't wait to upgrade!! I purchased it March 14, from a local sporting goods store because Amazon still said it wouldn’t be released until March 31.
For a quick review of the pros and cons (more detail below):
Waterproof (to 50 meters)
Shows time and date
Audible alert (when you’ve been inactive for an hour)
Backlit screen so you can see it in the dark
Default/home screen option
Automatic or customized step goal (optional)
Pairs with a HRM (sold separately)
No reminder alerts to bug you when you remain inactive**
No vibrating alert**
No customization with alert reminders
No manual alarms that you can set
** Indicates why stars were lost – if they fix, I’ll update my review (I explain below under "Alerts")
I chose the Vivofit fitness tracker over the other options out there because it doesn't need to be recharged and its waterproof (to 50 meters) - two very important things for me. I wear my Vivofit in the shower, washing dishes, swimming, etc. -- basically, I never have to take it off except to give it a little cleaning once in a while.Read more ›
The vívofit 2 provides an audible alert tone when Alert Tones are turned on. After one hour of inactivity, the move bar will appear on the watch and the device will beep, alerting you to move. Additional move bar segments appear after every 15 minutes of inactivity, but the watch will not provide another Alert Tone until a second hour of inactivity has passed. In other words, the watch will only beep after 60 minutes of inactivity (1 hour) and again after 120 minutes of inactivity (2 hours) and will not beep again until after the Move Bar has been reset and an hour of inactivity reoccurs. Of course, this information only addresses your concern and doesn't correct it. I would recommend submitting this suggestion to our Garmin Ideas Portal, which can be found here: http://www8.garmin.com/contactUs/ideas/. This portal allows you to submit your suggestion directly to our innovation experts who could use it to possibly add this feature as a future update or to future Garmin products. Although this isn't a direct "fix" to your concern, it's a good start.
With that said, we definitely appreciate and value your input. Thank you so much for taking the time to write this review.
After having gone back and forth between Fitbit and Garmin, I am going with the Vivofit 2 (for now). Here are some reasons I switched from the most recent devices, which might help you decide between these.
*** Garmin Vivosmart *** I liked the Vivosmart but realized that I didn't really like the alerts from my phone because I already have a smartwatch (Asus Zen). If you are often in a noisy environment or can't easily access your phone but want to see alerts (and don't have some other device that gives you alerts), then the alerts on a Vivosmart could be helpful. However, it was somewhat difficut to see full messages on the screen and really best serves to let you know that a message or call has happened - it's not great for a substantive alert. Additionally, the screen is just slightly hazy. It bothered me initially although I did get over it - but it definitely has a somewhat 'frosted plastic' appearance to it. This is something other reviewers of the Vivosmart have noted. The Vivosmart is more narrow and less thick then the Vivofit 2. I suspect this is partly because of the battery size in the Vivofit 2. I found the swiping or selection responsiveness to sometimes be a little inconsistent but nothing big on that front. There is a "Find Your Phone" feature on the Vivosmart that I did find useful. The Vivofit 2 does have auto-sleep tracking. The Vivosmart did not. (A software update may have changed this.) This meant that I either put the Vivosmart in sleep mode via my phone before I fell asleep or I put the time in on the app after I woke. The Vivofit 2 doesn't require this manual effort - it does it automatically.Read more ›
At the International CES convention held in January Garmin introduced the vivofit 2 with some remarkable upgrades to the original model.
“Vivofit 2 removes all obstacles holding you back from establishing healthy habits,” said Dan Bartel, Garmin vice president of worldwide sales. “Designed to be with you 24/7 with features including one-year battery life, audible move bar alert, always-on display with backlight and fashionable band options from the Style Collection, vivofit 2 keeps you motivated wherever you go.”
While Garmin stuck pretty close to the original design and main features, there are several distinct differences between the vivofit 2 and its predecessor. For starters, the vivofit 2 has a movement indicator sound. On the original, there was only a red line that formed across the top of the digital display when the user had been sitting still for too long. Many fitness bands have some sort of vibration or audible alert to go along with a visual reminder. Garmin added that to the list of improvements on the vivofit 2. Now, when you’ve been sitting too long, a nice chirp emits from the wearable and you know it’s time to get moving.
Another addition to the upgraded model is the backlight. The digital screen now has the option of a LED light for the display. This is a very welcome addition to me because there were countless nights that I would try to turn my Vivofit into Sleep mode but wouldn’t have the proper light to be able to do that.Read more ›
