      The band included in the box is not adjustable. The vivofit jr. module is the same as a vivofit 3 and would fit in a vivofit 3 band which do have adjustable options.

        Answer

        I personally wear a Fitbit Blaze (which I love) but this Garmin is really designed for kids. There is no Fitbit designed for children under 13. These Garmins have fun features that are the same as Fitbit including: stopwatch / timer, clock, step counter, and easy to read display. The kids do not need the app to see their stats, unlike Fitbit. The app is for the parents mostly, to control the settings. The parents can monitor activity AND add in alarms, chores to earn "tokens", and reminders to do things like brushing teeth, etc. A major plus of this Garmin is what no Fitbit currently offers- is that it is waterproof. Fitbit Blaze is water resistant - this Vivo Jr can be worn while swimming!

          Yes you would have to download the app and create an account. It didn't take a long time to do.

      • Question
        Can the vivofit jr and the vivofit 3 use the same app? It's like to get a watch for both me and my daughter and be able to "compete." Wondering if I should get the adult version or just a second kid one and maybe a replacement band.   (1 Answer)

          Answer

          The vivofit jr. and vivofit 3 use different apps. The vivofit jr. pairs with the vivofit jr. app and the vivofit 3 will pair with the Garmin Connect Mobile app. While the devices do not directly pair with one app, you are still able to compete with your daughter and track steps. The vivofit jr. app has a Leaderboard that would show the number of steps taken by each device.

          Answer

          The recommended age range for the vivofit jr. is 4-9 years old. This is based on the band size since it is designed to fit most kids in this age range. For someone turning 13 you may want to consider a similar device like the vivofit 3.
