Garmin Vivofit Colored Band Packs Can Be Purchased For $24 to Mix Things Up

For an extra $10 it is well worth it to get the Garmin premium soft strap 3 and simply purchase the Vivofit without heart rate....

Vivofit is the new activity tracker from Garmin that is one of two that do heart rate but the upgraded soft strap makes it that much better according to Heart Rate Watch Company.

"Garmin chose not to use the premium soft strap, opting for the standard Garmin heart rate monitor, and we are encouraging folks to upgrade," says Rusty Squire, President of the Heart Rate Watch Company. He adds, "For an extra $10 it is well worth it to get the Garmin premium soft strap 3 and simply purchase the Vivofit without heart rate."

Simply The Best

"Garmin Vivofit and Polar Loop are simply the best activity trackers because of heart rate but the Vivofit is much better with the soft strap in our opinion," says Squire. He adds, "Later this Spring we intend to make our own bundle that exclusively use the soft strap as we feel the standard Garmin heart rate monitor is inferior for overall weight and comfort."


Garmin Vivofit offers steps, distance, activity tracking and alerts, Garmin Connect Mobile app and heart rate data, which is critical for activities where the wrist is stationary according to Squire. "Overall, Garmin and Polar have a much greater collective experience in the fitness electronics marketplace than any of the other activity tracker companies," says Squire.

Low Maintenance

"Garmin Vivofit requires no cutting to fit and comes with lithium coin cell batteries so it does not have to be charged," says Squire. He adds, "Simply change the coin cell batteries every 10 months and you are good".

Change The Band Color Easily

"Garmin Vivofit also has spare band kits with three different colored bands which you can use to quickly and easily change your style," says Squire. He adds, "These spare bands come in blue, purple and teal for $24".
