Garmin Vívofit® Jr. Kids Activity Tracker

★★★★ 4.0

It doesn't pair with our iPhones or iPads!

★★★★★ 2.0
Verdict: Really disappointed. Can't get this watch to pair with any of our Apple devices so can't assign chores/rewards which is why we bought it in the first place. Unless Garmin support can resolve it'll be going back unfortunately.

Garmin Vivofit Jr

★★★★★ 5.0
Verdict: Great and fun for the little one. Now he wants to get more and more coins doing all his chores without complain, from homework to brushing his teeth. Funny. It is limited but enough for a 6 year old. Count steps, sleep and activities as movement. Expensive not being a tracker but fun.

Garmin Vivofit review: Long battery life in a fitness band, no charger needed

★★★★ 3.9
Verdict: Garmin's simple and functional activity band is easy and low-maintenance, which makes it one of the best alternatives to a Fuelband or Fitbit.
I've been using the Garmin Vivofit for the past month, and I've never had to charge it once.
  • The Garmin Vivofit is water-resistant
  • has a one-year battery life
  • an always-on screen
  • and works with wireless heart-rate monitor accessories.
  • No vibration for movement reminders, and battery needs physical replacing after a year
  • You're forced to use the Garmin app, rather than arguably better third-party health apps
  • Lacks more complex activity tracking.

★★★★ 3.5
Verdict: The Vivofit is a great activity tracker, but there's still some work to be done on the software side of things. Also consider the Polar Loop.

Garmin Vivofit Review

★★★★ 3.5
Verdict: Garmin's Vivofit activity tracker makes a few trade-offs to balance features, style, and ease of use into a mid-priced device. The results will appeal to a certain crowd, but not everyone.
Garmin, a company known for its GPS-enabled products, including sports watches for high-performance athletes, has thrown its hat into the activity tracking ring with the Garmin Vivofit (from $129.99)($220.00 at Amazon). It's a well thought-out device, balancing features and design with price and value, although the trade-offs won't appeal to everyone. If you prefer coin-cell batteries that work for a year over USB-rechargeable ones, and appreciate an always-on display, keep reading. On the other hand, if you want a fashion-forward wristband that can quantify how many flights of stairs you climb or effortlessly calculate your REM cycles, the Vivofit's modest look and capabilities won't impress you. You can buy Garmin's Vivofit for $129.99 solo, or bundle in a chest strap heart rate monitor (HMR) to bring the total cost to $169.99. If you're in the market for a new chest strap and use one often, that's a deal worth considering. On the other hand, if you're not a competitive runner o...
  • Comfortable wrist-worn activity tracker
  • Monitors steps, distance, sleep, calories burned
  • Syncs to computer via USB ANT+ stick and Bluetooth Smart-enabled phones
  • Not particularly stylish
  • Doesn't count stairs climbed
  • No natively supported activities other than walking and running
  • Must actively enable sleep mode
