In 1989 Gary Burrell and Min Kao created Garmin with the intent of providing the work with cutting edge satellite navigation and Global Positioning Systems and today the global leader takes a step into a new business area which many would not have seen coming.
Priced at £99.99 and looking (if I’m honest) rather cheap and tacky the vívofit will have a long uphill struggle if it’s to compete in what’s become a very aggressive market space.
Garmin vívofit’s features include:
- Personalised daily goals
- 24/7 wearable and waterproof soft band
- One year battery life
- Display showing: time, steps, distance, calories and how you are progressing towards your daily goal
- Compatible with a heart rate monitor
- Inactivity monitor
- Sleep tracking
- Wireless sync with Garmin Connect for a complete overview of progress

Your body’s new best friend
Garmin vívofit – A Fitness Band That Moves at the Pace of Your Life
The NEW Garmin vívofit is the only fitness band which learns about your activity levels and then sets you personalised goals. Designed to turn good intentions into lifelong habits your vívofit tracks your progress and reminds you when it’s time to move. Featuring a unique, curved display that always stays on, it measures everything from the number of steps you have taken and the distance you have covered to the calories you have burned and how you are progressing towards your daily goal. It also tells the time and can even monitor the quality of your sleep. Vívofit’s user replaceable batteries last over one year and vívofit is water-resistant (50m), as well as being compatible with ANT+™ heart rate monitors for fitness activities.
Vívofit doesn’t judge or preach, it is designed to move at the pace of your life – gradually nudging you towards a healthier lifestyle. It tracks your progress and reminds you when you’ve been sitting for too long with a discreet red bar display, and to find out how well you slept, just set the sleep mode before you go to bed. Just as Vivofit helps you towards a better lifestyle gradually, certain supplements act the same way. Read the lean nutraceuticals natural testosterone booster review and see for yourself how they can enhance the quality of your life.
Now, coming back to the point in concern. Vívofit’s lightweight, waterproof and comfy, curved design means that you can wear it just about anywhere – even in the shower – and with batteries that last for a year, you don’t need to worry about recharging it.
With the touch of a button, you can wirelessly sync vívofit with Garmin Connect – Garmin’s online community – to see a complete picture of your progress, including weight loss, which you can either keep private or share with others. Vívofit can also be used with a heart monitor, providing invaluable information whether you are a serious athlete or concerned about your overall level of fitness.
Available from March 2014, vívofit is available in black, purple, teal, blue and slate and comes with both a small and a large adjustable bracelet.
