    Great Value Fitness Tracker For Kids

    |
    Posted .

    We have put the Vivofit Jr 2 through its paces and it's still performing as if it was new. I especially love the stopwatch feature and the preprogrammed timers and alarms for toothbrushing, getting ready in the morning, etc. We recently took a trip to Florida where my son swam in a saltwater pool everyday for several hours and the Vivofit is still working perfectly (we did remove it from the band and rinse and dry afterwards.) It has consistently tracked his steps and sleep patterns. The only hiccup we've had (and this is since the beginning) is that sometimes it doesn't want to sync right away manually, but it does it automatically throughout the day at random times on its own so it hasn't been a deal breaker. The app and adventure mode is cool too but my son is more interested in his fitness stats.

    Great product

    My 9 year old son is very happy with the Garmin Vivo Fit Jr. 2 watch for kids. He is involved multiple sports and always wanted a step counter to keep track of his daily steps. The activity tracker watch provides what he was looking for and the sleep log was a bonus for him. The chore reminder is also a nice feature we use to help remind him of certain chores. The watch has been wore on a daily basis for a month and it appears to take the normal wear and tear expected from a 9 year old boy. We have NOT had any issues with the watch concerning software or rash due to wrist band material. I only wish it had GPS tracking and cycling capabilities. My son highly recommends the watch for kids!

    Great kids fit tracker

    Purchased for my ten year old. She loves it! The app loads to a tablet without issue and there's no need for a phone. It best with the app connected, and it offers great incentives to get moving. My daughter has worn I during field hockey and soccer games without issue.

    Great for kids, WATERPROOF!

    Posted .

    I was excited to get this watch for my daughter as it is waterproof and she has gone through a couple regular watches just by washing her hands. She swims with it and washes her hands and the watch keeps on going! The watch has several options and you can set alarms through your smartphone that will alert the child to do something such as brush their teeth, make the bed, clean the room etc. They can then earn points which motivates my daughter to complete her chores. Additionally the step tracker which is pretty basic at least encourages kids to be active and hit higher step counts. Overall really happy with the features and durability.

    Good first activity watch for kids

    My kids wanted a fitbit, but they were too large for their wrists and I wasn't sure about the investment. We got this around Christmas and it was worth the risk. This worked well as I could track their chores daily and issue rewards based on that. We bought one for our 7 and 9 y/o and they worked well. Trouble with the battery running down because wasn't close enough to my phone for the entire time of an update. Ordered a new battery. Another new battery for one which just stopped working and was only 5 months old. Still worth it for what it was. I would buy it again if my kids were still this young and wanted to see if they could handle the responsibility of a more expensive watch before a fitbit.

    Cute idea, great motivation

    Its nice to finally have a kids activity tracker thats not worthless. They can actually check their wristband to see the time, how many steps they have taken, how many 'active minutes' they have and can even track chores and rewards. These are all awesome, however I wish the screen was a little brighter like in the pictures. The coordinating parent app is also nice, a bit basic but nice. Just wish there was a kid app that they could go into to see their progress.

      Hello NCmedic236, We wanted to reach out to let you know that there has been an update to the vivofit jr. app that offers a new mode called Kid Mode. Kid Mode gives kids the ability to check off chores and view their app adventures on their own. The app is now also compatible with many Android and Kindle Fire Tablets. Thanks again for posting a review. -JFH Garmin

    This is a great starter for kids who want to track activity or for their parents who are trying to help increase activity of their kids. A parental account is required but the advantage is that the kid account links to it so you can see the activity. We use this on our special needs son and being a Star Wars buff it helps that the band is Star Wars. He wasn’t too interested in it at first but turned out it was because he wanted the storm trooper icon on the step counter. Now he checks his steps! My only problem is that I would like a larger display but it may be because I’m older and can’t see as well as I used too!!

    Our son loves his Garmin Vivofit Jr 2. I recommend you buy the warranty on the devices because the Battery is not chargeable and has a basic lifespan that has gone out 3 times before a year. So with the Warranty replacement you can make sure you are covered when that happens. Best Buy has been great in replacing it at the store. The good thing about not having to charge it is one less charging device to worry about and your child doesn't have to take it off all the time to charge it.

    this is 2nd Vivofit jr2 watch for my son. his first one survived for almost two years until i purchased a battery from HEB and the battery leaked within 2 days, which damaged the watch. the watch is very easy to use for elementary age kids, my son likes the features include timers and step count. He can also make race with his friends at school who also use Vivofit jr 2.

    This Garmin vivofit jr. activity tracker watch is perfect for my 10 year old grandson. It motivates him to keep moving to be sure he gets the activity he needs. Highly recommend this product, although I may have to buy additional bands for him. Perfect for wearing in the pool.

    This is so cool, i is geared more towards kids especially for the rewards part of it but im a 28 yr old woman and find its a nice little treat when i can check off the chores I've done for the day and see the coins i get for it.the only big things i get bother by is sometimes the tracking of the steps can be off. Sometimes it doesnt count them all. Overall its a fiun and great acitivty tracker.

    What a Great Gift for a 6yo

    Posted .

    My grandson was very interested in another fitness/activity tracker. However, it seemed a bit out of his age range. So I looked around and found this one. I was a bit hesitant at first because it wasn't exactly what he had on his Christmas list. I took a chance and went for it. He was so thrilled and it was such hit. The best part is he uses it everyday and really works toward the goals. Perfect in every way. I think the only challenge could be the parent getting it dialed in for them. We didn't have that problem. But I could see where it could be an issue for some. I think you'll be surprised at how much motivation it provides for your kid/grandkid to be physically active and even set chore goals. :).

    Works great, my daughter loves her tracker!

    My daughter received this for her 8th birthday. We looked at a variety of other trackers but bought this one because it was a Garmin, the interface was simple and fun, and many of her friend's had the same watch. Setup was simple and the device was ready to go in about 10 minutes. I like that there is no battery for charging and that the battery last about a year. No charging is nice! The tracker seems well-made and my daughter is already saving up for another band to have. She loves working her way through the app to get her moves and prizes. This tracker makes her aware of how active she is on a given day and we love that. It's a great device!

    Just my opinion

    Posted .

    Love the ease of use and that it does not require charging unlike other activity trackers. Fully waterproof and bands are interchangable once kids get older if they dont like the character bands. Time will tell how long the battery lasts. Tracks activity, steps and sleep. Not quite sure how accurate the quality of sleep tracker is. Kids like they can get coins/rewards for doing chores that can be assigned to each kid. Love that I can see both my kids in the one mobile app. It states it will auto sync 3-4 times a day but we normally manually sync it twice a day usually right before bed and right after the kids wake. Has some personalization options for the screen to make it unique.

      The battery is a consumer replaceable battery and should last about a year.

    Good activity tracker for kids

    Last Christmas, I bought the original Vivofit Jr for my son. He liked it. Unfortunately, the plastic band that came with it didn't last very long. We had to find replacement for that. Last month, the screen somehow got damaged. It now shows a black dots in one corner of the screen. This sometimes made it hard to read time. Just bought the new model as a replacement. It is a bit pricey but my son likes it. So four stars for now and hope the newer model is a bit more robust.

    I bought two, for the grandkids aged seven and five. They like them, but I only rated them a 4 because I haven't seen them in use. They would probably give them a 5. Rated quality a 3 because I don't know; value a 5 because they were a good price to buy as gifts; ease of use a 5 because these very young kids have no trouble using them.
