The ultimate workout accessory, Garmin’s Vivofit is a wearable fitness tracker that assesses your current activity levels, and then assigns you a personalised daily step goal. Its easy-to-read LCD display shows how many steps you’ve taken, distance travelled, calories burned and time of day. Garmin Vivofit stores all your activity data on your wrist, and with a touch of a button, it wirelessly syncs it to Garmin Connect, the online fitness community. At Garmin Connect you can see your progress, join online challenges and earn virtual badges to reward yourself for all of your hard work. Garmin Connect also lets you compete and compare data with friends and family around the world.
Thanks to its long-lasting battery (more than a year without a battery change), Vivofit can check on your progress 24/7, even when you sleep. In sleep mode, Vivofit will monitor your rest and record the total length of your sleep, as well as periods of unrest. The Vívofit band is water-resistant, so you can shower or get caught in the rain worry-free.
To keep you motivated, Vivofit features a ‘time to move’ bar which 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.
Use the heart rate monitor chest strap (included with this bundle) with the Garmin Vivofit to record your heart rate data and get a more accurate calorie burn information for any fitness activity, such as a run or a session at the gym.
For detailed calorie tracking, you can create an account at MyFitnessPal and link it to your Garmin Connect account. This allows you to compare calories consumed to your total calories burned, which Vívofit also records throughout the day.
