Garmin Vivofit Black Is The Most Popular But You Can Purchase Other Bands

Garmin Viviofit analyzes steps, distance, heart rate, calories and sleep patterns and can automatically adjust your daily activity goals based upon history....

Vivofit is the easiest activity tracker to read in bright sunlight thanks to an LCD display according to the Heart Rate Watch Company.

"A lot of companies chose LED displays, which work fine indoors, but they are difficult to read in bright sunlight", says Squire. He adds, "Add to this the fact that the Garmin Vivofit requires no charging and does heart rate, plus sleep data and you have a clear leader in this segment".

Change Band Colors Fast

"One of the things we like about Garmin Vivofit is the ability to buy spare band kits for $24 that allow you to change between three additional band colors to suit your mood", says Squire. He adds, "This adaptability means you are not locked in to one color scheme".

Heart Rate For When The Wrist Is Stationary

"Heart rate is absolutely key to have in activity bands for activities where your wrist is stationary, like cycling or spin class", says Squire. He adds, "This gets lost on a lot of people and they actually think that these bands with just accelerometers are accurate; they are not".


"Garmin Viviofit analyzes steps, distance, heart rate, calories and sleep patterns and can automatically adjust your daily activity goals based upon history", says Squire. He adds, "If you are inactive for longer than an hour it even reminds you to get up and move, which is great for desk jockeys".

Buy Vivofit and Soft Strap Separately

"Garmin included the regular heart rate strap with the Vivofit bundles and we advise customers to buy the Vivofit band alone and then add the Garmin soft strap separately", says Squire. He adds, "For a couple extra bucks this makes the strap a much better and more comfortable one in our opinion".

Garmin Connect App

"The Garmin Connect app can be loaded to your iPhone 4S or later version, or an iPad, to track all your data", says Squire. He adds, "The alternative is to use Garmin Connect directly and cable up with your PC or Mac".
