Fitness Band That Moves at the Pace of Your Life

- Displays steps, calories, distance; monitors sleep
- Pairs with heart rate monitor¹ for fitness activities
- 1+ year battery life; water-resistant²
- Save, plan and share progress at Garmin Connect™
You already know the active steps you take now can improve your overall wellness today, tomorrow and well into your future. And while it seems simple to get out of that chair more often and move, making it stick is another matter. That’s where vívofit can turn good intentions into lifelong habits. It’s the only fitness band that greets you with a personalized daily goal, tracks your progress and reminds you when it’s time to move.
Personalized Daily Goals
vívofit learns your current activity level, then assigns an attainable daily goal. As you meet your milestones, vívofit 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.
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 knows. A red move bar appears on the display after 1 hour of inactivity and builds when you’ve been sitting too long. Just walk for a couple of minutes to reset the move bar.
When you’re ready to take the next steps toward better health, vívofit has additional features to keep you motivated. Use a heart rate monitor¹ with vívofit to record your heart rate and zone data and get more accurate calorie burn information for any fitness activity, such as a run or a cardio class at the gym. At Garmin Connect, you can join online challenges with other vívofit users or start your own competition with friends to compete for virtual badges and bragging rights.
vívofit follows your progress 24/7, and it can stay on for more than a year without a battery change. Set the sleep mode when you go to bed and vívofit will monitor your rest. At Garmin Connect, you can see your total sleep hours as well as periods of movement and restful sleep. The vívofit band is water-resistant², so you can shower or get caught in the rain, worry-free.
With the touch of one button, you can wirelessly sync vívofit with Garmin Connect to see a complete picture of your progress, join online challenges and earn virtual badges for extra motivation. You can access our free online community from your computer or on your compatible mobile device³ with the Garmin Connect™ Mobile app.

UPDATE: Garmin responded within a couple of days that they had already shipped a replacement band, although it was technically out of warranty. SInce the way the product performs its basic funcion is so good I had to change my rating from 1 to 5. I'm very pleased with how easy it was to deal with Garmin. Most electronic products are repaced within a couple of years for new ones with more capability. I'm sure I will want to purchase my next item from Garmin.
Vivofit is durable, it survived 6 Spartan races and would have kept going had it not popped off in the festival area after the race this past weekend. The screen got a little scratched but again with what I put mine through I couldn't expect otherwise.
The pictures attached are from not long before it was lost. Note stuff does get stuck inside where the tracker snaps into the band... But if you're not doing mud races or really spend time to clean it that's not a problem (I didn't want to spend the time and it never bothered me, had some Georgia clay with me for quite some time) and the 40,000 steps one was after one of the last Spartan races it survived. I suggest it for sure and already have my Vivofit 2 on the way since I've horribly missed my original in the 2 days without it!
-----------(original review below) -----------
I had a fitbit one (it was found so I only paid to get the charger and wireless dongle) but I was frustrated I always had to charge it and would often forget to put it back on, and I couldn't wear it in the shower so it was missing steps I was taking. I was looking into other fitness trackers since I liked the idea of them and wanted to be able to use it especially swimming since living on a lake means a lot of water time in the summer months. I was looking into the polar loop but hated how it wouldn't sync with my phone, this one still doesn't, (I have an LG Optimus L9 so not very popular and I live with the fact that I have to go to the computer to sync daily but can still view the stats on my app. Syncing to the computer can be a pain sometimes since it'll say it failed to sync a few times then will one time all of a sudden without problem.
I LOVE how the battery life is up to a year+ because then I really don't have to take it off ever, I didn't even realize other people felt the same way enough for Garmin to be excited for this feature. As with any "waterproof" electronics I get skeptical that maybe it will still break, but yesterday was the first ocean day, hours in the water its completely fine.
I got the HRM package set, works good, I can often forget I have it on (I am a lady though so its no real different to the bra strap feeling when I wear it all the time, Never slides down at the gym. I origionally wore it constantly to bed and everything but your skin sweats under it and stays and it got itchy so I take it off at night now. Havent used it in the water sine I swim for fun not training, but I can imagine that although the piece is waterproof the elastic based band wouldn't fair too well with constant water use, but any other way it wouldn't be comfortable on your skin all the time. Many people complain about how it hooks but I don't see the problem. Its helpful at the gym not to have to hold the treadmill's HRM which throws off my running momentum taking away my arms, and its good to keep me aware of my anxiety and familiarize myself with what's normal for my heart, while its consumer grade so not recommended as reliable if you have a preexisting problem, I know that if something is going wrong heart-wise i'll have early notice, and while i'm still young heart disease is in the family, so good to keep watch early.
My only complaint is, I go the purple band so it wouldn't look to masculine on my wrist. but in less than a month ownership a dark collection of wear has started around ridges of the band. Makes me wish I got black but i'm still happy I got the purple since its a lovely color!
Definitely recommend it!
Pros: waterproof, very long battery life compared to competition, not too clunky or masculine looking, came already paired to the HRM I got with it (saved many confusing steps usually associated with pairing).
Cons: Quirks when syncing (please let me know if none of you have had small troubles because if its the case that its my computer its not a quirk, either way its easy to work through just have to sync it a few more times for it to actually connect. There's no backlight so setting it to sleep mode you have to find a light to see the screen, but I personally prefer the battery life to the light, I just know its a common complaint from people.
I love the Garmin. Compared to similar fitness trackers it is a great price. I find their App much better than the FitBit app. Unlike many other users I don't have a lot of trouble with syncing - HOWEVER - I'm used to having to fight the sync nearly every single time with the FitBit, so I'm a wee bit conditioned to it not working as easily as it should. The Garmin syncs 90% of the time when I tell it too. My fitbit is closer to 50% and even then the screen wont' refresh until I exit the app and come back in.
The newer Vivofit seems to ship with the little piece that covers where the band snaps close, which is the fix for the bands coming open. Which is good.
Very happy with my Vivofit.
But there have been problems with the Garmin Connect Site and also with the heart rate band which is not reporting accurate data... some times it drops to 0 or keeps reporting 35bpm for a period of time with does not make sense.
Their support team answer very quickly regarding the heart rate monitor issues and they are going to send me a new one. I'll update this review after I get the new one.
About the site it looks better now, the down time is not an issue any more.
I had to improvise a vivokeeper using an old watch strap. If they are aware of the easy unclasp issue they should send it with the product.
Over all it is very nice having it, it keeps me motivated and focused on my goals.
I'm a working from home mom who workout at home too.
