Garmin Vivofit fitness band is a new activity tracker that has been launched in the market that has been designed to move at the pace of a person’s life. Even though there are already lots of fitness trackers in market but Garmin Vivofit band differs from them in a lot of aspects.
Most importantly it has a 1 year plus battery life which means that it saves a person from the hassle of charging the device again and again. The battery would have to be replaced after a certain time period but it is good to go for more than a year.
Secondly it is water resistant so a person does not need to worry about having to take it off while going in the shower or if it is raining. Moreover, it works as a fitness band as well as a watch.
Vivofit fitness band also pairs with the heart rate monitors of all kinds and displays the heart rate right away which can be used to get better information for burning calories and improving fitness activities.
Another feature of this activity band is the move bar. Unlike other fitness bands it does not vibrate or buzz to remind the person that he has been inactive for long rather it displays a red bar which keeps on increasing if a person has been sitting for a long time. The segments start to light up after fifteen minutes of inactivity.
Vivofit also sets goals for the person after learning his current activity level. It assigns a goal on a daily basis that must be attained by the person in order to improve his health. So, the person can set the goals for himself but if he does not then, this fitness tracker can do that as well. It also keeps record of the calories that have been burnt throughout the day and also determines the metabolic rate of that person.
It can wirelessly connect with iOS and different android phones but not all of them. With the help of this feature the users can connect virtually and compete with each other in order to promote a sense of motivation among them.
This device also monitors the rest of its user but for this purpose it is required to be set at sleep mode while going to the bed. It keeps track of the quality of rest of his user.
