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.

I've been visiting forums and unfortunately I realized this problem is super common and no solution is available among the comunity.
A TOTAL WASTE OF MONEY. I am putting my new vivo fit 2 in the trash now!
I did struggle figuring out how to synch the included heart rate monitor. The instructions provided in the box said that if the HR monitor was boxed with the Vivofit 2, then it was already in synch, but I found this to not be the case. After some searching I discovered you have to go in to the Garmin Connect App, click more in the lower right corner, tap the picture of your device, then device settings, then visible screens, and then make sure 'Heart Rate' is turned on. You should also tap 'During an activity' and make sure it is turned on there as well.
Now i'll tell you what i don't like so much. When it comes to tracking your steps there are some things that need to be fixed, my device keeps counting steps while i'm driving (it ads up about 2,000 steps on my commuting), while i'm taking a shower and even when i'm brushing my teeth, if we do the math on a normal day the Vivofit 2 puts my steps in around 9,000 steps but 2,000 are mistakenly counted so that's more than a 20% error, on a day that i made a long trip about 4 hours it counted like 10,000 steps, because of this error i cannot trust on the amount of calories counted by my Vivofit therefore cannot make adjustment to what i eat based on it. The sleep tracking information it's still very basic, there's not much you can learn from your sleep other than the hours of light and deep sleep. There's an option to track activities but it primarily serves you as a stop watch.
Overall i like the device and i'm hoping for Garmin to address the step counting while driving issue.
I wear it daily. It does once in awhile have syncing issues but it is usually an issue with the garmin updating the app. I liked the older set up better of the app. Sometimes the newer version of the app does not sync correctly with my fitnesspal. Usually when that happens I have to disconnect the app and reconnect, then it works just fine. For awhile the heart rate was not tracking. They did however fix the issue.
I definitely recommend getting a screen protector for your vivofit 2. It has saved several scratches.
Over all I still live my vivofit 2 with heart rate monitor. I have purchased several different color bands for my vivofit 2 so I can change it up. I have had it for quite some time now. It is not as much of a motivator as it was in the beginning when it was new. But however I do connect on the app with family and some strangers and that part definitely helps with motivating to get my butt moving. Over all I think it is well worth it and it is a lot cheaper now than when I purchased it.
