Garmin GARMIN Vivofit Activity Band
I love this Vivofit!! It it so amazing it tells me the time and it keeps my steps. The battery last for a little over a year no need to charge it you just replace the battery for cheap. It even tells you the date. You can get the app and track your sleep time and how much you moved or how deep your sleep was. It also tells you how many miles you walked that day and it sets a goal for you.
Let me say first that this is a pretty decent watch for the price! Comfortable, waterproof, you can change the color of the band, ect. The step counter is pretty darn accurate ONLY IF YOU ARE MOVING your arms! As a nurse in the 21st century, we push rolling computers around. With my arms not moving, it wouldn't count any of my steps. When I go on a hike, my step count is very close to my phone count, though. I ended up giving the watch to my mom and just using my phone for purposes of step counter. The watch does not do heart rate, either. If you are looking for a good, affordable watch, this is your starter!
I have had my Vivofit since July and I LOVE it. It bought the chest strap to wear during workouts and they both work so well. I really like that it tracks sleep as well as steps and I can wear it in the shower and while cleaning since it is waterproof. I've even worn it swimming with no issues at all. I recommend it to everyone who wants a basic activity watch.
My Vivofit is one of my favorite things ever! I got it about 2 years ago as a Christmas gift, and it still works great! It syncs easily with my phone. I am a runner, and the distance on my Vivofit is usually very close (within .10 miles) of my GPS on my phone. It's waterproof, so I quite literally wear it for weeks without taking it off! Anytime someone is looking for an activity tracker, this is the one that I suggest!
I have had my band for 3 years now and love it! I wear it daily. I picked this one because you don't have to charge it, and the battery lasts a full year. Super easy to use. I use my app on my iPhone when I want to download my workouts. I always recommend this to my friends!
I love the brand Garmin and i love this watch, but I've been through two of the because the easily fall off my wrist. The app works great but the watch itself would definitely work better as a buckle strap. I currently have the Garmin vivosmart HR and I love it!!
I've had my Garmin Vivofit for almost 2 years. I never take it off! They say the battery lasts a year but here we are going on 2. I wear it in the shower, pool, ocean, etc and it has never failed me. Definitely worth the money paid!!
I loved my vivofit! It was so easy to use and I love all the features! I did give my away though but only because my fitness program at work was not compatible with garmin products at sadly ..
This is something that I would love to try it's almost like the Fitbit looks very sturdy I work out at least 5 to 6 times a week and this will be very good to track my workouts
This is one of my most used possessions. I wear it everyday. Its probably time for a new one. I'm on year 3 and the band is starting to fall apart.
Q & A
Are the batteries easy to change on this?
How this work for you? It's possible it can follow your heartrate?
I've been using a Fitbit for years(currently using the Alta) but a friend told me about this. Has anyone used both this and the Fitbit? Which do you prefer? What are the differences? Thanks!
Does anyone else wish that it would light up in the dark or there was a way to turn a back light on?
Anyone use this and the fitbit? How do they compare?
