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
- HTC One
- Samsung Galaxy Note 2, Note 3, S3, S4
- iPhone 4S, 5, 5C, 5S
- iPad Air, The New iPad (iPad 3), iPad with Retina Display (iPad 4),
- 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
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.
