TheVívofit Fitness Band from Garmin is a comfortable rubber wrist band that displays personalized health and fitness information as well as monitor sleep patterns. The Vívofit band can also display activity goals, track your progress, and provide reminders when it's time to exercise. With a customizable, easy-to-read screen you can set up the Vívofit to display the information most crucial to you, whether it be during a work-out, at inactive moments, or even when sleeping.
With the supplied USB ANT stick and free software you can link the information in your band to your computer and send your activities and progress to Garmin Connect. At Garmin Connect, you can join online challenges with other Vívofit users or start a competition with friends to compete for virtual badges and bragging rights. The fitness band will store up to 3 weeks of 24/7 activity data between syncs, or up to 2 weeks of data if a heart rate monitor is used 1 hour per day. A small and large band come supplied with the Vívofit, which is water-resistant up to 164' and can work continuously for approximately 1 year on the supplied batteries.
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 monitor with Vívofit to record your heart rate data and get more accurate calorie burn information for any fitness activity, such as a run or a session at the gym. 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 records throughout the day. Also 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-resistant, 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
