Data on display

Tells time and “time to move”
Research shows that prolonged periods of inactivity, like sitting, decrease your body’s production of fat-burning enzymes. That effect can be reversed with frequent, short walk breaks.
You might lose track of time but vívofit 2 never does, thanks to its audible move bar feature. After 1 hour of inactivity, vívofit 2 gives you an audio alert and displays a red move bar that builds every additional 15 minutes. Just walk a couple of minutes to reset the move bar.
