    Almost perfect

    Posted

    I really like this band - the overall quality is excellent, the design is fun, and personally I find that the buckle feels safer than the original Garmin band's twist-lock closure. Two things stop it from being absolutely perfect. The first is that the Vivofit 2 doesn't fit as snugly in this band as it did in the authentic Garmin band. I find myself checking it more often and fiddling with it to make sure it is secure. The second is that the positioning of the button on the band doesn't quite match the position of the button on the device, so it is quite awkward to change mode, start/stop, sync, etc. Overall, a solid, inexpensive band which is good, but not as good as the manufacturers' own.

    Returned to store and associate ordered a different one since I bought box on from one I was wearing! Associate very nice but no knowledge of this product.But he did look on line and together we ordered the correct bands for my Garmin.New bands arrived and are correct! Garmin That was purchased a year ago has a terrible strap that does not stay locked and I have lost my first Garmin plus lost and found my second one four times.Your associate was fine. Yhe Garmin you sold was a very poor design and I will never purchase one again! It was lost and found for six out of 12 months!

    I needed a new band for my Garmin Vivofit original fitness watch. I looked online and couldn't find any information if the Vivofit 2 band that has a watch style closure would fit the original watch. I decided to try it and found it doesn't fit the original Vivofit watch. The latches that secure the electronic piece of the watch do not lock on band designed for Vivofit 2. I might consider upgrading to a new fitness watch as I like the new options for Vivofit 2 as it's thinner and I like the new band closure better.

    not good

    I purchased this wristband for my new Garmin Vivofit2. Installed the Vivofit 2 into the band After socializing, went to bed and boom, the next morning the Vivofit was not attached to the band. Figuring I put it in wrong, tried and tried again. The Vivofit would not fit into the band. So back to Best Buy it went. I guess I will have to stick to Garmin bands and not a substitute.

    Nice alternative

    I still prefer the band that came with the Garmin, but this is a nice alternative to match what I am wearing occasionally. I gave 4 stars instead of five because the construction doesn't hit the button as easily as the band that came with the piece. As a result it takes a little fussing to toggle between steps taken, steps remaining to goal, date, time, etc.

    Like a traditional watch band

    Was trying to get a replacement band for my VivoFit2. This was the only type available. The band has a traditional metal clasp to secure it, not like the original band that snaps into itself and then twists to lock. The band tries to lay out flat instead of having an organic curve to it. It kept the watch on, but it was a little cumbersome to get it secured.

    I was attracted to this band because of the pattern and colors. I also liked the fact it had a buckle clasp. I have a small wrist and was hoping it would adjust tight enough to fit. It did. The only small (very small) negative is that the rubber seems a bit soft so it pulls away from the vivo fit face a bit. This is a small annoyance and does not affect performance.

    I received a white banded Garmin Vivofit as a gift. White never stays white for long, so I bought the French Bull 2 as a replacement, and I am very happy with it! I can wear it in the shower, sleeping, all the time, and no irritation on my wrist. Waterproof! Very comfy!

    I really like French Bull stuff. It's super cute and durable. I knocked off a star because it's always a little loose on the left side of the little "viewbox". it isnt a perfect, tight fit. Still, it's really cute and I like the wristwatch clasp.

    These are so much fun and love the watch type band - it is so secure. But, my last B&W one got damp and the small band holding the end of the larger band disintegrated -- leaving the band flapping. Still love them though...

    Packaging did not clearly state which Garmin Vivofit the band was for and I have the Vivofit 1, not the 2. This did NOT fit mine so now I have a product I cannot use. I live too far away to just jump in my car and make a return.

    Nice replacement band for my Garmin Vivofit. Very easy to swap out, takes about 10 seconds and you're on your way. Wife digs the design too.

    I love my Vivo Fit2 but I wanted another option to wear besides black. Th colors on this band are vibrant. It will be a great eye-catcher for the summer months. It's great quality rubber with a watchband adjustment.

    I do like the look and feel of this band. However, the top part that surrounds the tracker sometimes catches on things. I'm not sure how well this band will last.

    didn't like the loop that you put the strap in after you hooked the strap on . The black loop is so loose that it slides of and I don't feel that the that hanging strap is secure. So I don't like to use it.

    We were looking for different colors and styles of band to spice up our Garmin Vivofit 2 and found what we were seeking. It was the right size and was the uniqueness we were seeking

    I love this band, and wish it came in more patterns and designs. I think there are only three, and I was able to get two of them at Best Buy. Just something fun, and out of the ordinary.
