Garmin, the global leader in satellite navigation, today announced vívofit (veevo-fit) — a stylish, lightweight fitness band designed to turn good intentions into lifelong habits. Vívofit is the only fitness band that greets users with a personalised daily goal, tracks their progress and reminds them when it’s time to move. Featuring a unique, curved display that always stays on, vívofit also shows steps, goal countdown, calories, distance and time of day.
Vívofit’s user replaceable batteries last over one year and vívofit is water-resistant (50m), as well as being compatible with ANT+™ heart rate monitors¹ for fitness activities.
Vívofit learns users’ current activity level, then assigns an attainable daily goal. As milestones are met, vívofit will adjust the goal for the next day, gradually nudging users towards a healthier lifestyle. At Garmin Connect™, a free online fitness community with currently over 4 billion miles uploaded by users, virtual badges can be earned and progress viewed through easy to read reports and graphical representations.
Vívofit follows progress 24/7, and it can stay on for more than a year without a battery change. Setting the sleep mode when going to bed allows vívofit to monitor the quality of rest. With the touch of one button, users can wirelessly sync vívofit with Garmin Connect to see a complete picture of their progress, including their total sleep hours as well as periods of movement and restful sleep.
At Garmin Connect, users can join online challenges with other vívofit users or start their own competitions with friends to compete for virtual badges and bragging rights. Users can access this free online community from their computer or on their compatible mobile device² with the Garmin Connect™ Mobile app.
Vívofit will be available in black, purple, teal, blue and slate and both small and large sizes come in the box. Vívofit will begin shipping quarter 2.
