Our take on the Garmin vivofit™

by Ken Nail
Garmin

Track your life

Garmin's vivofit™ is your ticket to living the life you want. Your vivofit band tracks the steps you take, the distance you travel, and the calories you burn throughout the day. As time goes on, vivofit assesses your fitness level and then assigns daily goals that gradually bump up your fitness and propel you towards the healthy lifestyle you're trying to achieve.

And vivofit doesn't take time off — it can track the quality of your rest while you're sleeping. At work, vivofit will even remind you to get out of your seat and move. Sit too long and a red bar appears — get up and move for a few minutes and it resets.

Features

Overview: The Garmin vívofit is a water-resistant fitness band that helps you reach your personal fitness goals. The slender, lightweight device is worn on the wrist, and displays your steps, calories burned, and distances traveled, and alerts you when you've reached your daily goal. With the optional ANT+ wireless premium heart rate monitor, it shows your current heart rate and your heart rate zone. It can even monitor your sleep. The vívofit weighs less than an ounce, and comes in five color choices.

Garmin Connect: The vívofit has built-in Bluetooth Smart technology so you can automatically pair it to your smartphone or mobile device. You can also use the supplied wireless USB ANT+ stick to connect the device to your home computer. With the Garmin Connect app on your phone or computer, you can keep track of your activities, your daily goals, the calories you've burned, and help motivate you to keep active. You can also share your activities and goals with your friends on social media. The vívofit settings are configured on Garmin Connect, including Time Format (12-hour or 24-hour), Measurement Units (miles or kilometers), Visible Screens, and Auto Goal. The vívofit is compatible with the following devices:

  • Android:
    • HTC One
    • Samsung Galaxy Note 2, Note 3, S3, S4
  • Apple:
    • iPhone 4S, 5, 5C, 5S
    • iPad Air, The New iPad (iPad 3), iPad with Retina Display (iPad 4), iPad Mini
    • iPod Touch 5th Generation

Wrist Bands: The vívofit comes with two wrist bands to ensure a good fit. The small wrist band is 4.7" to 6.9" in length, while the large band is 6.0" to 8.3" long. The vívofit should be worn all day to monitor your activities, and all night if you wish to monitor your sleep.

Activities: The Garmin vívofit keeps track of your activity level throughout the day and displays the results on the 1" x 0.39" liquid crystal display. You can view at a glance your daily step count and the percentage of your daily step goal, the distance you have traveled, the number of calories you have burned, the time of day, your current heart rate, and your heart rate zone (when used with the optional ANT+ heart rate monitor). If Auto Goal is enabled, the device will adjust your daily step goal up or down depending upon your previous step totals. If worn at night, the vívofit monitors your rest, including total hours of sleep, periods of movement, and periods of restful sleep. The vívofit's memory stores up to 3 weeks of 24/7 activity data, or up to 2 weeks if the heart rate monitor is used one hour a day. You should sync the device with your phone or home computer periodically to clear the memory.

Water Resistance: The vívofit has a water resistance rating of 5 ATM, which means it can withstand pressures equivalent to a depth of 50 meters (164 feet). Not only can you wear the device in the rain and wet weather, you can even shower or swim with it. The device also has a wide operating temperature range of 14° to 140°F.

Batteries: The vívofit is powered by two user-replaceable CR1632 coin cell batteries with a battery life of more than a year.
