    So far So Good

    I purchased this as a replacement to my original vivofit which broke (after 2 1/2 years of use and no battery replacement) I originally thought that just needed a batter but one of the tabs inside the battery compartment was breaking off. But enough with the original on with the new. It is an improvement over the old one in that it illuminates. Otherwise functionality is pretty similar overall. The connect app works for the most part and it does have an "auto-sync" feature similar to the vivofit 2 which my wife has. (she also had the vivofit 1 and upgraded, her original vivofit is still going strong on one of my daughters). These are similar to alot of other fitness bands in what they do. I like the simplicity of them as well. the big selling feature for me is the not having to charge it. As long as I get a good battery life out of it and it does not break I will be fully satisfied with it. Only time will tell. :)

    Love the long battery life

    I am in my 60s and selected this tracker because of the one year battery life. It is hard enough to keep my smartphone charged. The app has worked and never locked up like the cheap trackers apps did. I also like the red line that reminds me to move and walk. This has helped me lose weight by keeping me active. The band also has a lock on it so it doesn't pop open. I have had it on in the shower with no problems. I will test it in the pool when summer comes. The only negative for me is I wish the display was bigger. I can read it without my glasses, but bigger would be better. I will buy this again as a gift for my wife soon.

    Good basic activity/sleep tracker

    • Verified PurchaserVerified Purchase
    • My Best Buy® MemberMember

    Except for syncing, this is a great tracker. Not sure why, but it takes 6-8+ attempts to get it to sync. I bought it mostly for the sleep tracker, but it easily tracks everything else, too. Heart rate would be nice, but you'd need another monitor and that's just a pain. Easy to wear and waterproof, so you can wear it in the shower/pool. Also works in conjunction with myfitnesspal to track food intake etc. Bought the XL band, but will need the regular size if I lose much weight as I only have 3 holes to go.

    Great and easy product

    • Verified PurchaserVerified Purchase

    I love my vivofit3. It fits comfortably on my wrist with no problem, time and stats are clearly visible and it's waterproof! I never have to worry about taking it off to charge, because the battery last for the year! I'm so glad I switched from a Fitbit, because I was tired of charging it all the time. The only thing I miss is a heartbeat tracker, but it does account for calories burned, so that's good!

    Vivofit 3 Tracks Everything Important to Me!

    • Verified PurchaserVerified Purchase
    • My Best Buy® Elite Plus MemberElite Plus Member

    This new Vivofit 3 is a great tool to track my activities while encouraging, motivating, and challenging me! Besides all that, it keeps me on time as well. It really is light and comfortable. Once more, it is easy to lock the band in place so I don't catch it on something and lose it somewhere. A battery that does not need recharging is icing on the cake.

    Great activity tracker for the price

    I purchased this as a gift for my mother. It's easy to use, she set everything up in about 10-15 minutes, been wearing it regularly and said it is comfortable on her wrist. Accurate activity tracking thus far. Liked the fact that it had a replaceable versus rechargeable battery.

    I bought this as a Christmas gift for a friend. Who wanted to start tracking her steps and sleep as well. This was a good introductory for her. She loved it and is enjoying tracking everything.

    Pairs well with my ZTE phone with bluetooth and then just sits there and will not download any data or connect on-line. Instructions are poor.

    No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    The Garmin Vivofit 3 occupies an interesting place among entry-level fitness trackers. It tracks more information than the Misfit Shine 2 or the Misfit Shine 2 , and it's easier to view this information on the Vivofit 3 than on similar devicesFull Review
