    The product is easy to connect with smart phones or computers and the functions work as promised. My 8 year old grand son really likes to count his steps. It gets him off the couch and away from the computer games. So fare it is holding up to his not so gental treatment.

    The main functions that i use with my 5 year old is to let him know that he needs to do at least in one day 60 minutes of activity during day. He also realizes the time and is more aware. And best thing is the function of earning points of doing chores for rewards.

    We gave the Vivofit Jr to our granddaughter for her birthday late February and she hadn't taken it off since then. She loves to if she can beat herb previous day activity level and her mom loves the bonus/incentive feature to encourage our granddaughter to do her chores.

    I got this for my 8 year son who always wanted to know how many he steps he got daily. He loves having a step counter and the Watch. He did tell me one day when riding in the car that he was getting steps which I was bummed to hear. It has helped with some chores as well

      Thank you for your review. We are glad to see that your son is liking his vivofit jr. We did want to address the concern that you had with it tracking steps while in the car. This device uses accelerometers in the module to track steps. There are instances where if the device is moving in a similar manner to the arm motion of walking or running then steps will be recorded on the device. Thanks again for your review. -JFH Garmin

    My Granddaughter LOVES this watch. She is constantly checking her steps and progress. I have a garmin watch also, so we are always doing challenges. She's had it about a month, and still has not grown bored with it.

    I purchased this for my 8 year old son for Christmas and it’s the perfect size for him. He loves the timers and other features of the watch. The app that accompanies the watch is user friendly and has some great videos on all the features of the watch.

    I think it says 4-8 and they are right but more towards the 4 year old. This band is TINY!! I purchased for my 8 year old niece for holidays and it was sooooo small I couldn't believe it. We ended up returning and getting her a bright pink fit bit which she now loves!!

      Hello Leta1303, Thank you for taking time to review the vivofit jr. We appreciate your review and would like to address your concern over the band size. This band was designed to and does fit the majority of 4-9 year-olds, however, we understand that this will not fit every child of this age. The below video has instructions in it for how to ensure the proper fit of your vivofit jr. as well as what steps you need to take to obtain a larger band from within the vivofit jr. app. Thank you again for the review and we hope this information proves useful.

    More than just a step counter

    My kids are very motivated by the coins they can earn. We've set up different chores and such that are worth different coin amounts. They can save their coins and cash them in for different prizes. It is much more useful and fun then just a plain ole step counter!

    It's a cute idea for a younger child & the wristband is very small so it would fit a smaller child well... it is a solid band with a little stretch but not enough to get over his hand - it's very basic in terms of what it does which is great for a younger child.

    My son wanted a fitness tracker to be like his parents. I finally got him one and he is conscientious about getting his fitness goals and chores completed. He loves it. It has started quite the competition in our household which helps us all be more active.

    I originally bought this for a 10 year old but the band is very small and not adjustable. The band stretches a little bit but not enough to go over his hand; it fit great on his 5 year old brother and he loves it. Vivofit Jr. keeps him moving!

    Nice unit! Was easy to setup and worked well for a couple days. After that the device stopped updating and was a huge pain to continue getting the data from the tracker to our phones. Would really like this if it was more dependable like the Fitbit brand.

    Bought for Christmas and it was too small for my 8 year old son. We ended up having to buy additional bands for 39.99, which we are still waiting for. Still don't know how much we like the actual product because we have not actually used because it doesn't fit.

    This fitness tracker is good. My son likes to compete with us so he is more active in an effort to get his steps in. The band fits snug, but is fine. It is not too tight. He only takes it off to shower. I recommend the tracker for kids.

    This is the second one I've bought... first for my daughter and this one for my sone. Really cool fitness tracker for kids. My kids love to "compete" for steps and it's nice to be able to see how well and long they sleep at night. Great product.

    My 7 year old son wanted a Fit-bit and i didn't think it was best for him at his age. So i looked into this watch / tracker and this watch was perfect for what we wanted. I love this watch and i recommend this for any young child who wants a tracker watch.

    My kid loves this. It fits her wrist which was my biggest concern. She is 6 years old and has small wrists. But fits great. She was so excited because her sisters got fit it's but she got this and it has the rewards system and chore tracker. Awesome gift

    This Garmin is designed for kids and I think they did a great job. The features on it are such that kids can easily relate, and they assist the user in reaching and/or even exceeding their goals for the day.

    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
