Press Release

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.  

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.
