Each child is really into all the functions, steps taken, daily activity time, chores complete, coins received, the timers and stop watch. Before bed, my children like to read the trail, the next clue or animal. We have sat down as a family to design rewards. On Fridays, if they have earned enough coins, they can receive their allowance or bank coins for other rewards.
My five year old is learning higher numbers and reading time. My 8 and 10 year old have asked to use the treadmilll (rainy days) or go for bike rides to meet daily goals. They are really excited when they have doubled, even tripled, their daily activity goals. Their chores are done quicker (and correct), they are asking for more ways to help around the house.
As a teacher, best educational practice is to have students set their own goals and identify their consequences (positive and negative). The Vivofit Jr. allows us to do this with easy management and quick feedback. I wish there was an immediate, affordable system for tracking positive behavior like this which I could use in school with my students.
When my mom friends and teacher friends have seen the watches and the app, they have purchased Vivofit Jrs. for their children. My children's friends are asking their parents for ones.
It is great the Vivofit Jr. fits bands for the Vivofit 3. As they get older it will not look childish with a replacement band.
I write very few reviews. This is such a cool product with useful, practical functions, I needed to write a review.
Garmin vivofit JR provides a lot of features which are easily accessed through a single function button. Perhaps MOST importantly it actually tells the time. There are so many fitness trackers out there which don't seem to care about the time! It also has: a stop watch, a chore tracker, task timers (like for brushing your teeth), minutes active tracking, step tracking, and a coin system for doing chores.
All this is linked to a parent controlled app which was very easy to set up and get working. The band is well sized for our 9 year old and the tracker is water proof. It's great to see a company tailor their product for kids and not just re-size it, but customize the whole experience (including being able to have your kids name on the time!).
My daughter loves it, and it motivates her to keep moving.
Yes I consider it expensive. But I was impressed with its offering and ordered it in May '17 as a gift for my 9yr old daughter. We were delighted with the product though I was lightly disappointed by the screen size .It fit her wrist and she was happy. It was easy to pair and set the chores. The software was novel though there is lot of room for improvement .
2 months, though we didn't explore all the features it was going well.
3rd month, we saw a big blob on the screen and I was mad. I was kicking myself that I should have read more reviews to see if it's common and knew it was beyond the period for return or refund .
4th...The last straw...The strap broke ..My kid was so heartbroken and I'm terribly disappointed. C'mon Garmin ...Seriously !!! U make a product for kids and that too for $79 and what were u thinking....The first thing should be it's durability with their band...Why aren't they even giving a yr warranty for it...And then come.external screen which I think again has to endure the wear and tear....Can't imagine it on boys , especially very active boys. Yes, I know they have screen guard and I made a mistake of not spending another $8 to do that....
And what's with that big black blob on the screen.....In just few mths ??
I wish I had thought through before getting this product.
This watch does have it all. It's a must for parents with little ones. I even have parents of my school students get them and we work together to reward effort in class. I can't say enough positive things about this watch.

This thing could be improved upon, though. The sync function is a bit annoying as it has to be initiated from the watch. I wish it could sync automatically every 24 hours or something.
Further, I wish the reward system allowed for reinforcement of positive behaviours (versus chores). As it is, you can input chores (e.g., tidy bedroom) and check it off when complete. But for something like brushing teeth we've had to input both brush teeth AM and PM, which get checked off independently. But what'd be really great is to give him a "coin" for something like "sharing with bro"... a behaviour I'd reward with a digital coin 50 times a day if I could. We've set it up so we have "share with bro 1" and "share with bro 2" and 3, etc... but it's silly that we have to do that.
Overall, though, really happy with it and highly recommend.
Optional: You can give them points on their watch (unlocks access to adventure games they can play on an app). We give them points for going above and beyond what's expected of them, and points for when they help out a lot doing hard and/or time consuming tasks without complaining.
Our boys are age 6 and 8 and they each have one of these watches (two different straps lol). The strap is JUST big enough for our 8 year old (average size for his age), so if you have an 8 year old with big wrists, this strap will be too snug. If you have a 10 year old (girl?) with really skinny wrists, you're probably fine with this size.
Best part: they're water proof and have a 1 year battery life (aka: no need to take it off to charge it constantly). The kids can shower with it, swim with it, roll around in the mud with it, etc. It's pretty perfect actually lol.
We tell the kids that they can't have any electronic time until they reach their activity minute goal for the day (default set on the watch is 60 minutes)
The best feature is its battery,really holds well as designed.
- Excellent battery
- Has timer, stopwatch as well inbuilt
- The inbuilt game where one can explore new animals after every 60 mins of activity is very good.
- Tracker is quite accurate.
- water resistant as well, my kid has taken bath while wearing it at times.
- easy on the hands, good strap quality.
- only one that the first one didn't work as expected so they replaced it promptly and the new one worked like a charm. So I will put that to a defective piece which was addressed very quickly.
Update on 03 Sept: changed rating to one star since the battery died down in 4 months whereas its supposed to have one year warranty.
