Our take on the Garmin vivofit® Jr. 2 by Crutchfield's Ken Nail
Make it fun
Kids are born to play, and we all know it's good for them. In fact, leading authorities recommend that every child enjoy at least 60 minutes of play time every day. Encourage your child to tap into their natural inclinations with Garmin's vivofit jr. 2 activity tracker. This swim-friendly tracker's durable stretchy band and color screen are built to take on the rough-and-tumble of sports and playtime, and its 1-year battery life means you don't have to worry about recharging it every day.
The parent app
Garmin's included app lets you track multiple children, as you keep tabs on their steps, daily activities, and sleep. Set up chores with alerts and reward your child with virtual coins for a job well done. You'll do it all from your mobile device.
Activity unlocks app adventures
When your child reaches their 60-minute activity goal for the day, they'll unlock new adventures in an app specifically designed for each version of vivoactive jr 2. Help Minnie Mouse plan a party, battle Ultron with the Avengers, or help BB-8 escape the planet Jaku — pick the tracker that matches their interests.

- Important Safety and Product Information
Overview: The Garmin vívofit jr. 2 is a water-resistant activity tracker designed for children, ages 4-9. The vívofit jr. 2 features a one-piece stretch band that kids can slip on or off. The companion vívofit jr. app, available for Android and iOS devices, allows parents to track the kids' activities, responsibilities, and sleep. The app also features an adventure that gives your child motivation to meet their goals. The tracker pairs to your smartphone via Bluetooth. The vívofit jr. 2 weighs less than an ounce, comes in a choice of Disney, Star Wars, or Marvel Comics themes. This vívofit jr. 2 model has an orange stretchy band with a Star Wars BB-8 theme. As a bonus, the box doubles as a piggy bank for earned activity rewards.
Wrist Band: The vívofit jr. 2's flexible silicone band is designed to fit most children ages 4 to 7. The stretchy band fits wrists up to 5.8". The device can be removed from the device for cleaning or changing the battery. If a larger wrist band is needed, the vívofit jr. 2 will fit any of the Garmin vívofit 3 bands.
Activities: The Garmin vívofit jr. 2 keeps track of your child's activity level throughout the day and displays the results on the 0.43" x 0.43" 8-color memory-in-pixel LCD with a resolution of 88 x 88 pixels. You can view at a glance your daily step count and the percentage of your daily step goal, and the distance you have traveled. If worn at night, the vívofit jr. 2 monitors your rest, including total hours of sleep, periods of movement, and periods of restful sleep. The vívofit jr. 2's memory stores up to 4 weeks of 24/7 activity data. You should sync the device with your phone or home computer periodically to clear the memory.
vívofit jr. App: The vívofit jr. application lets you track your children's daily activities, responsibilities, and sleep from your Apple or Android smart device. From the app, you can view individual profiles for each child (with a vívofit jr. 2 or the original vívofit jr.), and their progress toward step, activity, and chore completion. As a motivator, the app features BB-8's Adventure: A Star Wars Story. For every day the daily 60-minute activity goals are met, the story advances and uncovers new adventures and icons. The app is compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch, and requires iOS 10.0 or later. It also works with Android smartphones and tablets running Android 5.0 and up.
Reminder Alerts: The vívofit jr. app lets you schedule alerts that appear on your child's device to remind them of a chore that needs to be done, or an activity that needs completing. The reminders can be set up on a daily or weekly schedule, making it perfect for the child that occasionally needs a reminder.
Move IQ: The vívofit jr. 2's Move IQ technology recognizes from your movements the different activities you perform. Whether your child is walking, running, biking, or swimming, the device automatically recognizes when you change your activity.
Move Bar: To remind your child to keep moving, vívofit jr. 2 displays the Move Bar and gives an audible alert after one hour of inactivity. Additional segments of the Move Bar appear after every 15 minutes of inactivity. Walking a short distance will reset the Move Bar.
Toe-to-Toe Step Challenge: The Toe-to-Toe Step Challenge is a 2-minute contest held between two vívofit jr. 2 wearers, or a single-player self challenge. After a 3-second countdown appears on both devices, the contestants try to take the most steps while the timer runs. When 3 seconds remain, the devices beep until the time expires. When both devices are within range (10 feet), the winner and runner-up are declared on the app.
Water Resistance: The vívofit jr. 2 has a water resistance rating of 5 ATM, which means your child can wear the device in the rain and wet weather, and can even bathe or swim with it. The device also has a wide operating temperature range of 14° to 113°F.
Batteries: The vívofit jr. 2 is powered by one user-replaceable CR1632 coin cell battery with an estimated life of more than one year.
