Vivofit is the new activity tracker bracelet from Garmin and it has several big advantages to all other activity trackers according to the Heart Rate Watch Company.
"The more we use the Garmin Vivofit, the more we like it and discover its accuracy," says Rusty Squire, President of the Heart Rate Watch Company. He adds, "We have tested it on a 3.1 mile track, counted steps, tested the distance against wheel measurement, tested the heart rate and calories and it stacks up very favorably."
5 Reasons Vivofit Is Better
#1 - LCD Display for Better Outdoor Visibility - "We have tested bands with LED back lights like Polar Loop and they just are not visible in bright sunlight, whereas Vivofit's LCD display is," says Squire. He adds, "That is a big advantage if you exercise outdoors."
#2 - Heart Rate Data - "Only two activity trackers - Polar Loop and Garmin Vivofit - offer heart rate data," says Squire. He ads, "This is huge for cycling, spin class and activities where an accelerometer will not give you activity credit so having heart rate is a big deal."
#3 - No Charging Required - "Garmin Vivofit comes with two user replaceable coin cell lithium batteries that last for about 10 months," says Squire. He adds, "This is huge because you don't have to recharge the unit every few days."
#4 - User Changeable Bands For More Color Options - "Garmin Vivofit spare bands can be quickly changed from one color of band to another in just seconds," says Squire. He adds, "You can buy spare band kits with three extra bands for just $21 and have loads of color options."
#5 - Garmin Connect Mobile App - "You can either sync the device via USB to a PC or sync to Android (Requires phone to be running Android 4.3 or higher): HTC One, Samsung Galaxy Note 2, Samsung Galaxy Note 3, Samsung Galaxy S3, Samsung Galaxy S4, iPhone 4S, iPhone 5, iPhone 5C, iPhone 5S, iPad Air, The New iPad (iPad 3), iPad with Retina Display (iPad 4), iPad Mini and iPod Touch 5th Generation," says Squire.
"Garmin Vivofit really has well thought our features and tops our list for activity trackers for this reason," says Squire.
