    Great activity tracker for kids

    My son received this for Christmas and loves it! It was very easy to setup. I was concerned about the app being on my phone but it hasn’t been an issue. He is able to see the number of steps, number of active minutes, clock, etc on his device so he doesn’t need constantly be checking the app. There’s a timer feature that comes in handy for homework (timed reading and math). I highly recommend this!

    Well made, comfortable, fun for kids. Has several cool features to encourage kids to stay active and even helps them keep track of daily responsibilities and chores. Only downside is that while the product is made for ages 4 to 9, my 8 year old has maybe 6 months before the band is too tight. However, they do sell a larger XL kids band on the Garmin website and it's supposed to also fit into the adult vivofit bands.

    Excellent product, just a little $$$

    My girls love it. They're 8, and have small wrists, so it really fits perfect. They have to stretch it to put it on, but once it's one it's a little lose - but not enough to fall off (and they're active!). The app is nice, they like that I can add their chores. Overall we love it, they're having a great time with it. $79 just seems a little much for it being such a simple product/app, only reason I gave it 4 stars.

    Loving Garmin vivofit jr. Activity Tracker For Kids. My husband and I wear fitness trackers, our little one loves to follow us reaching our goals. We purchased one for a Christmas gift, she is loving it, so good to watch. We are still learning all what the Vivofit does. A good mention, she loves the rewards system feature. Doing chores, brushing her teeth makes her motivated to keep it up.

    My son loves it, but I can't for the life of me get it connected to the app. I have a garmin watch as well and that synced no problem, but I can't get this to sync and the model is not listed in the options when you try to force sync it. He doesn't care, he is too young for a phone, but still. It should sync. Would still recommend it though, not really a deal breaker for in my opinion.

    My daughter absolutely loves this tracker. I have tried other trackers in the past but this one she refuses to take off. It also has an app that you can add daily chores and if she completes the chores, I give her coins that she can spend toward fun rewards. She also shows me every night how much steps she has taken. The only downside is that you cannot customize the band if the child has a bigger wrist.

      Thank you for your review.The vivofit jr. is designed to fit the majority of children between the ages of 4 and 9 with its stretchable band. If you find that this product does not fit your child we recommend using the video below that walks through ensuring the proper band fit as well as the steps to obtain a larger band if this does not fit your child.

    My son loves it! We bought this for his 9th birthday and he hasn't taken it off since. No reason to, since it's waterproof. He has really challenged himself to be more active to go beyond those 10,000 steps each day and to accomplish those special tasks/chores. He loves it and now my daughter has added it to her Birthday list. We will plan to buy her one for Christmas rather.

    I opted to get different bands because my children are a little older (8,9,11). They don’t look too childish and they were genuinely excited to compete with one another, immediately going outside to get the most steps. Having the timer has been really helpful with screen time and for teeth brushing. This is a great product and I would definitely recommend it to others.

    Rash on wrist from Garmin

    My 8 year old wanted the Garmin for Christmas. Within several days of wearing it he broke out into a rash just where the wrist band was. He didn’t have any known allergies before this so it was a surprise to us. We took a picture of the rash and even brought our son in to show the manager his wrist. They refunded our purchase with no hassle.

    This watch is incredibly small. This is not accurate sizing, nor is expandable for comfort. My daughter is 7 and this band was so tight on her wrist, it was popping veins on her hand. It's a cute watch for sure, but for the age range 4 - 9, I would expect it to have adjustabilty.

    Jr. Tracker helps kids take charge of their health

    With such a concern over children not being as active as they can be using the Garmin Vivofit jr. Activity Tracker helps in this area. The tracker allows kids to be more aware of their own level of activity. The beautiful design is fun for the children (especially girls) to wear and they think it is "cool" to wear something similar to what adults wear for their activities.

    Bought this for my son for Christmas. It's great and he loves it, but it's already blacking out!! He hasn't even had it a month and it's already malfunctioning. You can only see half of the screen and it's bugging him because he can't see his coins, time, etc....Is anybody else having issues with their watch?? Can I return it to BestBuy or do I need to send it to Garmin??

    I bought this for my 10 year old but it was too small to fit his wrist comfortably so I gave it to my 8 yr old daughter. She loves it. I dont. You have to log in to the APP to give rewards and it takes quite a bit of practice to figureout what does what. My favorite thingabout this band is that it does keep up her steps and sleep and it is a bit water proof.

    This product was for my 10 year old. We love how easy it is to use. It makes my daughter excited to get up and moving in order to reach the step goals that are set, as well complete the chores. We've built a reward system around the goals and chores. The device itself has the time on it, so it also doubles as a watch. Overall, it was a great buy.

    We bought this item as a gift for our daughter who is 7. She was very excited to receive it and one of the cooler features is the ability to award points for tasks around the house or chores. She can then "cash in" the points for rewards like staying up late, getting a treat, etc. It also obviously tracks her activity level and sleep patterns.

    I bought this because my son insisted he never slept. I wanted to know if he had a sleeping problem or not. Turns out he sleeps the number of hours he should for his age, when he sleeps less it is obvious in his behavior. Love the vívofit jr, makes me feel better about my sons sleep and he is excited every morning to check the sleep time as welll.

    My daughter wanted a watch for her Birthday and this is so much more. We can compete on steps with the entire family. The reward system has improved behavior and decision making in the household as I can customize consequences and rewards to fit each kid. I love that you get send for a free band for my oldest as she has a bigger wrist.

    My son got this for Christmas last year.. He wears it all the time and loves it. He's always trying to beat his records and he enjoys all the little awards he gets for reaching his goals. Unfortunately it only lasted a year and then froze up.. this is the second one.. I'll let you know how long this one lasts for.
