    The heart rate monitor was compared to the monitors at the hospital, and overall it was very accurate.

    I love this gadget! More accurate than an Apple watch as far as counting steps. So awesome that you don't have to charge it every night!!!

    I like the display, the step counter is accurate and the extra clip on the wrist band works good. The heart monitor does not work well.

    Inaccurate on treadmill

    When holding the bars on a treadmill the steps and distance is not accurately recorded on vivofit. Treadmill recorded 1 mile and vivofit recorded .57. The vivofit also recorded the steps at 1400. On average I do 2000 steps per mile. The iPhone health app recorded my steps more accurately. The hearth rate monitor seems to be more accurate

      We are sorry that this product didn't work out for you. Garmin Activity Trackers have sensors that are designed to detect natural movement in your arm performed while walking or running, so unfortunately, the vivofit is not going to accurately count your steps while you hold the bars on a treadmill.

      Garmin Activity Trackers work very well at giving an overall snapshot of daily activity but there may be some instances, such as the one you described, in which the device may not function as intended.

    I have tried a couple of other fitness bands and vivofit is by far the best of all, you don't need to charge the battery every so often, it lasts about a year, the HRM is very confortable and very accurate. The fitness band is very light, you won't notice you're wearing it

    The Garmen Vivofit accurately records steps as well as heart rate. It is very easy to use and syncs with your smartphone. Not convinced with the accuracy of the sleep patterns.

    I like the product and my only complaints are its hard to read the display , there is no back light. Also the app can't be a little difficult to use. I like wearing the chest strap , it's actually more accurate to measure heart rate from personal experience and from my research than the wrist. So that wasn't an issue for me.

    This product is really great for any fitness level. I also bought the HR monitor and I love working out with it to get a more accurate account of calories burned. The only thing is I wish the watch had a timer or alarm, otherwise really great! I use it everyday!

    I like the display and ability to monitor my progress through the day without having to synch to my phone. The 'auto goal' feature is very cool, adjusting my daily step goals relative to actual steps taken. The sleep and activity results in the app seem accurate and inclusive. Personally I don't mind the battery power, not having to charge the device is a plus for me. All in all, I'm real pleased with the unit.
