Bozeman, MT (PRWEB) March 01, 2014
Vivofit, the new activity band from Garmin that monitors heart rate and only requires battery changes once a year, is now in stock at the Heart Rate Watch Company.
"This changes the game in the activity band market because there is no more charging every few days so it is a lot more maintenance free," says Rusty Squire, President of the Heart Rate Watch Company. He adds, "The band also requires no cutting or fitting so you just take it out of the box, run through a brief setup and go, which is real convenient".
"Garmin Vivofit tells time and gives you steps, distance and calories," says Squire. He adds, "It also performs sleep monitoring, is water resistant, gives you goals that adjust for you personally and is wirelessly connectable thanks to Bluetooth Smart."
"The band establishes activity goals and adjusts your goals as you progress, plus with heart rate it can work in situations like stationary cycling where other activity bands fail," says Squire. He adds, "The only other band we put in a class with the Vivofit is the Polar Loop because it also does heart rate."
Motivation To Stay In Motion
"Long periods of activity are not good for our health which is why the Vivofit reminds you to get up and move around, go for a short walk for every hour of inactivity," says Squire. He adds, "Activity bands are very motivating and really do encourage customers to hit their goals every day - we get these comments regularly from customers."
Options & Availability
Garmin Vivofit comes in black, blue,slate and purple both with, and without, heart rate straps. "The price is $129.95 for the band and $169.95 for the bundle with heart rate but first time customers can save 11% by using the coupon code ftc," says Squire. He adds, "The bands in all colors and options are available now at the Heart Rate Watch Company website."
