    Got the Garmin Vivofit a few weeks ago and I love it! The Vivofit is lightweight and very comfortable. I haven't taken it off since it arrived. Set up was easy and it syncs to my iPhone 5 without any issues. I got the heart rate monitor combo, but only used it once. It worked well and I am looking forward to using it on a regular basis. The Vivofit band holds well and it hasn't been an issue. The connect app is really nice and easy to set up. All the features work as advertised, this is a top notch product! The sleep monitor is a nice option and the display in the app tells me how I sleep during the night. Thanks Garmin for creating a product that works.

    I'm in my mid-50's and by some standards overweight... about two years ago I decided to change. My Employer offers a gym subsidy and I took them up on it. I changed my diet, I have Lupus and Fibromyalgia so I train hard but under supervision. Earlier this year, I completed the local 'Zombie Run' as our company's team leader (and survived) I'm currently in-training to compete in the Navy SEAL's civilian 'Bone Frog Challenge'... an obstacle course and protracted run. I don't expect to come in the foremost competition BUT I WILL 'finish' and earn my coin and shirt. My Trainer and this device keep me honest and on-track. ~ :)

    Best band yet

    Coming from a Fit Bit Force recall, I was honestly just waiting for Fit Bit to make a new band and was going to get whatever that will be since none of the others really fit what I was looking for, till I found the Garmin. A year for battery life, amazing. Easy to read and great looking. Extremely comfortable on the wrist and extremely accurate. Ability to wear it while I shower of swim, great. None of the other fitness bands come close to this and I no longer regret sending the Force back for this at the same price.

    This little nugget is awesome! It is the only monitor of its type that has a watch on it, which is what drew me to it to begin with. It also has the date, heart rate monitor (when band is worn around chest), steps taken, steps needed to reach goal, how many miles you've walked, & how many calories burned. On top of all of this, you can get extra wrist bands in different colors to change it up. This puts my Polar monitor to shame. I love love love it & would recommend it everyone!!

    Best activity tracker that I have tried.

    I have tried 3 different activity trackers, and this one is by far the best one in my opinion. It is easy to use, easy to track your progress on the device without having to sync with a smart phone or computer to see your data. The one thing that I don't care for is that there are no options to change from a wrist band to other means of wearing like a belt clip or necklace. The rubber wrist band tends to bother my skin when wearing in hot weather or doing something that makes the arm/wrist area sweat.

    Being the first generation fitness band from Garmin, the vivofit band has surpassed my expectations. While it would be nice if the heart rate monitor were built in, having a built in screen with date/time, steps taken, steps to goal, distance and calories burned all available at a glance makes me a happy customer. I'm also excited about the Bluetooth functionality for syncing with my phone and only having to replace the battery once a year instead of charging it every few days.

    I bought this as a gift for my wife. She's been wearing it for the past couple of days and seems to really like it. The web interface is really great. It sets goals for steps and tracks your daily activity as well. It even tracks movement during sleep and lets you know how restful your sleeping habits are. This is the first activity tracker I've purchased, so I really can't compare it to others on the market, but overall, it seems like a really great product and neither myself nor my wife have any complaints.

    I purchased the Vivofit with the heart rate monitor which is nice to use when at the gym or mountain bike riding. The band is very comfortable and lite weight , never feels heavy on the wrist. One of the coolest things about the Vivofit band it that you do not need to charge it, it works on a one year battery. Know my wife has one along with my dad.

    Was looking for something to get me moving more. This is the perfect fit for me. It sets a goal for me to shoot for, and I love the fact that you can see it on a screen, along with the time, date, distance, and calories. The red motion arrows at the top also give you a bit of incentive to get moving as well. Really glad I spent the extra money on this compared to other fitness bands.

    I have a vivosmart myself however, I bought the vivofit bundle for my dad for Father's Day and he is in love with it. The garmin app he uses on the computer is pretty detailed. He likes to input his food so he can see how many calories he has left for the day. When he uses the chest strap heart rate monitor, it's very accurate. It is almost exactly the same as the tredmill. He loves it!

    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.

    I am in awe of everything the VivoFit can do!! I am so happy that I purchased this item. I would tell anyone wanting to lose weight and get fit, that this is such a great help in obtaining that goal. I have lost 3.9 lbs. in just 2 weeks, which for a 64 year old person is really good. Love all the graphics, pictures & charts. VivoFit is outstanding!!

    I'm very happy with the garmin vivofit. It tracks my steps, and has me increasing the number of steps daily. Also let's me know when I have been inactive for too long of a period. Doesn't require recharging, so all my steps count. One thing I don't like is that it doesn't count the time pushing a grocery cart, or riding a bicycle.

    I really like this Garmin Vivofit. The dashboard is much better than the one I had for my previous tracker (fitbit flex). I like the fact that I know my actual step count, and the screen on the tracker is easy to read. It is nice not needing to worry about charging this unit -- it uses batteries. I have only had this tracker for about 1 month, but so far I am very pleased with it.

    I love my Vivofit. It works so well with its Garmin App and accompanying app - My Fitness Pal. I use the setting that allows the device to set a daily goal for steps and I truly try to reach this goal. It has shown me that I am not as active as I thought I was - so now I am making changes for the better. Great display - I bought it liking having a watch on it and it works great.

    I've had a FitBit, stopped charging after 5 mos, I had the Samsung smart band and that lasted for a mere 2 mos! I LOVE the Vivofit, the heart rate monitor seems to work well too. If I were to change one thing it would be the app. I would like to be able to see the workout information on the app rather than just on my computer. I would highly recommend this product!

    Very pleased with this. I don't wear the chest band all day long just during exercise and parts of the day. I like how I can see my sleep too. It seems accurate. I would recommend this to anyone else looking for basic info on their health. I like syncing up with the phone. Also there are YouTube videos for instructions. Nice.

    Bought this as a gift for my daughter. I haven't actually seen it in action, but she loves it. She tells me it works well and the red line motivates her to move while studying. She, of course, is already active, but when doing homework this helps her take much needed breaks. She also tells me that the HR strap works very well.

    I have now bought 5 of these for family and friends. Send one to South Korea to my son and we share ideas on Sunday when we face time. So easy to connect to fitness Pal and keep track of everything you are doing. Had a fit bit and hated it, I suggest anyone whose older should try the Garmin.
