Take the first steps
Staying active is the key to good health, and Garmin's vivofit® 2 activity tracker can help you achieve the healthy lifestyle you're striving for. The vivofit 2 band tracks the steps you take, the distance you travel, and the calories you burn throughout the day, then assesses your fitness level and assigns daily goals that gradually bump up your fitness, propelling you towards your healthy lifestyle goal.
vivofit 2's move bar provides a visual reminder to get up from your seat and take a walk — a simple strategy that pays big health dividends. Sit too long and a red bar appears, and it even provides an audible reminder if you want. Or set it to provide a vibration alert through your compatible mobile device if that's a better cue. And vivofit doesn't take time off — it will track the quality of your rest while you're sleeping, too.
vivofit 2 comes with a wireless Garmin ANT stick, so you can wirelessly upload your data to Garmin's Connect website, where you can join challenges or even start your own competitions with your friends. Compete for virtual badges or just for bragging rights — it's a great motivator.
Accessorize your vivofit 2 with Jonathan Adler designer bands (not included, see "Accessories").
Stylish and practical
The stylish yet comfortable vivofit 2 will effortlessly fit into your life. The package includes large and small wristbands for a comfortable fit, and vivofit 2 is water rated to 50 meters, so ducking into the shower or taking a swim won't phase it at all. The vivofit will run for a year or more before you have to change its two coin cell batteries. If you're ready to go to the next level of style, check out the designer bands available under the "Accessories" tab.
Take it to the next level
Once you're moving and establishing a routine, use vivofit 2 to expand your horizons. The activity timer lets you record the duration of a walk, run, bike ride, or other activity, and then automatically upload the activity to Garmin Connect, letting you keep a handy record of the positive changes you're making in your lifestyle. And you can use an optional heart rate monitor with vivofit 2 to record your heart rate during exercise, so you can establish heart rate zones for training and get more accurate calorie consumption figures.

More details on the Garmin vivofit® 2
Overview: The Garmin vívofit 2 is a water-resistant activity tracker that helps you keep track of and 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 2 weighs less than an ounce, and comes in four color choices.
Garmin Connect: The vívofit 2 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 smartphone 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 2 settings are configured on Garmin Connect, including Time Format (12-hour or 24-hour), Measurement Units (miles or kilometers), Visible Screens, and Auto Goal. Garmin Connect for your home computer is compatible with Windows XP and newer and Mac OS 10.7 or higher. Garmin Connect Mobile works with Bluetooth 4.0-enabled devices running Android 4.3 or higher and iOS 7.0 and above. Click here for a list of compatible phones.
Wrist Bands: The vívofit 2 comes with two wrist bands to ensure a good fit. The small wrist band is 4.72" to 6.9" in length, while the large band is 6.0" to 8.3" long. The vívofit 2 should be worn all day to monitor your activities, and all night if you wish to monitor your sleep.
Activities: The Garmin vívofit 2 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 2 monitors your rest, including total hours of sleep, periods of movement, and periods of restful sleep. The vívofit 2'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 2 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 2 is powered by two user-replaceable CR1632 coin cell batteries with a battery life of more than a year. There's no need to charge the unit.
