Good points:
I like seeing how may steps i need to do to reach my target.
Bad points:
cant see the numbers in the dark. also the connection with MFP is not every 5 mins as it says on Garmin Connect, you have to refresh it every time. so i don't rely on it.

Manufacturer's Description

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.


See Your Activity

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. Use the heart rate monitor that comes with your vívofit to record your heart rate data and get more accurate calorie burn information for any fitness activity, such as a run or a session at the gym. Also at Garmin Connect, you can join online challenges with other vívofit users or start your own competition with friends to compete for virtual badges and bragging rights.


Always On

vívofit follows your progress 24/7, and it can stay on for more than a year without a battery change. Set the sleep mode when you go to bed and vívofit will monitor your rest. At Garmin Connect, you can see your total sleep hours as well as periods of movement and restful sleep. The vívofit band is water-resistant (up to 50 metres), so you can shower or get caught in the rain, worry-free.


Get Connected

With the touch of one button, you can wirelessly sync vívofit with Garmin Connect to see a complete picture of your progress, join online challenges and earn virtual badges for extra motivation. You can access Garmin’s free online community from your computer or on your compatible mobile device with the Garmin Connect Mobile app (Includes Bluetooth Smart Ready phones; contact your provider to verify if your phone is compatible) See online for more information.


Use with MyFitnessPal

vívofit users can link to MyFitnessPal, a free calorie counter. This enables you to track calories burned and consumed through one of the largest food and nutrition databases in the world. Simply link your Garmin Connect and MyFitnessPal accounts to view calories burned and consumed and see your net count for the remainder of the day based on your own calorie goals.


Complements Other Garmin Fitness Devices

If you are pretty serious about running, cycling, or swimming, and already own a dedicated Garmin device for these activities, you can use vívofit to track your activity and recovery between training sessions. As it is waterproof up to 50 metres you can even keep it on while swimming, reducing the risk of you forgetting to put it back on. You can then review all of your data from different devices at Gamin Connect.
