The Activity Tracker that Moves at the Pace of Your Life

Whatever your level of fitness, you already know the active steps you take now can improve your overall wellness today, tomorrow and well into your future. And while it seems simple to get out of that chair more often and move, making it stick is another matter. That’s where vívofit can turn good intentions into lifelong habits. It greets you with a personalised daily goal, tracks your progress and reminds you when it’s time to move.

vívofit learns your activity level and assigns a personalised daily goal so it works for you, no matter how active you currently are. It displays steps, calories, distance and monitors your sleep to give an overall picture. It can also pairs with a heart rate monitor (not included but is available to purchase separately) for use when you’re taking part in fitness activities. Then you can save, plan and share your progress at Garmin’s free website, Garmin Connect for further motivation.


vívofit has a one year battery life, so you don’t have to worry about charging it. Because it is also waterproof and tracks sleep, you rarely ever have to take the band off your wrist so you don’t need remove it for charging and risk not putting it back on again.

One look at the easy-to-read display and you’ll know how many steps you’ve taken, distance travelled, calories burned and time of day. There’s no need to stop and sync your data to see your progress. vívofit stores your stats right on your wrist.


Personalised Daily Goals

vívofit learns your current activity level, then assigns an attainable daily goal. As you meet your milestones, vívofit will adjust your goal for the next day, gradually nudging you toward a healthier lifestyle. At Garmin’s free online fitness community, Garmin Connect, you can earn virtual badges and view your progress.


Tells Time and Time to Move

Research shows prolonged periods of inactivity such as sitting at a desk decreases your body’s production of fat-burning enzymes. You can reverse that effect by taking frequent, short walk breaks throughout your day. And while you might lose track of time and forget to move, vívofit knows. A red move bar appears on the display after 1 hour of inactivity and builds when you’ve been sitting too long. Just walk for a couple of minutes to reset the move bar.


Keep Moving

When you’re ready to take the next steps toward better health, vívofit has additional features to keep you motivated.
