    My daughter loves it

    My daughter loves this tracker! I have an old vivofit and on the vivofit jr app I have it set to show who had more steps for the day. It pushes both of us to be more active. It is kind of expensive for a kid device, but it is holding up well.

    It was an amazing present for my 6 year old son. It's water proof which is a big plus. No need to charge battery for almost a year. They can track how much money they save, their steps, how long they have been active for and tones of more features

    Not simple

    I was hoping that my daughter could mark off her chores on the tracker. But I had to login to give her points and let her see the screens. It doesn't allow her to mark anything. It pretty much a glorified watch and step tracker at a high price.

    Definitely pleased with the many functions this offers for the kids!! Not too happy about how easy the screen is to scratch! The first day of using the screen was scratched in multiple places. Definitely needs some sort of screen protector on!!!!

    I bought this for my seven year old. He has had it for two months and hasn't taken it off. He loves it and can now tell time and read numbers over 10,000. He loves seeing the coins he gets from going chores and filling up his bank for a treat.

    I got this for my daughter because she loves to earn rewards with chore charts, and I thought it would simplify her life if it was in digital form. But she had to use the app on my phone to mark the chores completed. We returned the watch.

    My daughter loved this gift for her 9th birthday!! She’s proactive about reaching her steps and physical activity goals. It also is great for mom to track her chores and sleep activity.

    We purchased this for our 8yr old. It would not fit her wrist, it was too small. I did have to upgrade to a Fitbit. But was wanting to use this as a starter, needless to say it didn't work. Besides the size it would of been great for her.

      Hi Spendtoomuch,

      Thanks for taking time to review the vivofit jr. We wanted to reachout and address the band size concern that you had with the vivofit jr. The band is designed to stretch to fit most 4-9 year olds, but if the band does not fit comfortably the vi­vofit jr. app offers option for ordering a replacement band. You can find more information and instructions in the following FAQ link: https://support.garmin.com/faqSearch/en-US/faq/content/9L9m58yJfK9kWTP8zWvjr7. There is also a helpful video that offers proper fit information as well as information on band replacement: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=izoXIlkFl6M. The vívofit jr. module will also fit in the vívofit 3 band which offers a user adjustable band with a locking clasp. Thank you again for your review. Garmin

    Great piece that keeps my daughter engaged with her activity. She loves telling the time and tracking activity on her Garmin. The chores portion is great and she loves getting coins towards rewards. Definitely worth your purchase!

    My son wanted to track his steps like mom and dad do. After researching this sounded like the best overall choice. Very happy with it, makes tracking fitness fun for him and feel we are helping create a healthy lifestyle for him.

    I purchased this for a 6 year old. Because it has a replaceable battery,she never needs to recharge it. It's waterproof, so we don't have to worry about the pool etc. Loves looking at her mom's progress compared to hers!

    I purchased the Vivofit Jr for my 7 year old daughter for Christmas. The features seemed great, however, the band is not adjustable. It was way too small for her wrist. It has some stretch to it, but not much. We returned this.

    This is a great fitness tracker for children. Great for beginners. My kids love theirs. They truly are waterproof so there is never a need for the children to take them off / with the chance of losing them.

    It's been a great motivator for completing chores! My 8 year old son loves it, but note that the band that comes with it is really small. He's tall and thin and it fits him for now, but I'll have to replace the band soon.

    This item was a Christmas gift for my 7 yr old grandson and it was too small. I was told I could not return it because it had been too long. I do not live near a Best Buy and needed to do this online, where I purchased it.

    My son loved the vivofit jr. and being able to check his steps, gain coins & rewards...However, the band was too small for him (he is 9 years old) and he ended up getting a rash from wearing it so we had to return it.

    I purchased the Vivofit Jr. for my niece and she absolutely loves it. She calls me daily to let me that she has reached her step goal for the day. My sister likes the fact that she can add household chores to the tracker.

    We bought this model for our 5 year old, since we already purchased one for our 8 year old. They love using it both as a watch and to track their activity - it's turned into a fun competition for them!
