    This has been a great purchase, not only does it help us keep track of our child's activity but also his sleep habits. The chores option also helps us encourage our child to continue to be part of the family and help out around the house. He loves the rewards he gets and the mini game he plays wen he earns for his daily activity.

    Bought this for my son for his 8th birthday. He always wanted to wear my fit bit, but he would constantly tear it up, upset that it had to charge all the time. (It's an older fitbit) This one has a one year battery, easy to connect and set up, and has an app to help me remind him of chores. Doing a good job so far!

    My 9 year old son had the previous model of Vívofit jr & loves it, but the band broke after several months. We upgraded to this newest model, & are very satisfied. It has some cool new features. He loves being able to see his steps, see what time it is, & start timers. Of course the Star Wars design is awesome too!

    This watch tracks steps and it really motivates my son to move more! He enjoys watching his steps go up! You can list chores to do and it marks them off as completed when done. There is a kids app that has games on it , the kids earn coins to use in the games with their daily moving and chore completion!

    My son is 7 and he still has room for this thing on his wrist for a couple more years. I don’t believe it’s small and he’s a big boy. He is a young fitness person and likes to make sure he tracks his steps and activity. The pairing of the app and watch sometimes gives me trouble but it’s a great buy

    This is the second Garmin that we have bought for our children. They enjoy the games, and interaction on the app as well as setting and meeting their goals. The parental controls and rewards make it fun for the kids to do chores.

    My kids enjoy the Garmin Vivofit Jr. Activity Tracker. They use them mostly as watches, but they like comparing steps and who has more. The trackers useful when we are on vacation to see how active we have been during the day. The battery life is good, and the screen is readable in daylight.

    Great Activity Tracker for older kids

    I like this activity tracker for my almost 10 yr old because it is tough enough to endure his activities and helps remind him about his chores. He likes it because he can tell what time it is and that it has a game that he can play on my phone and earn coins that he can trade in for rewards.

    Not know if my 7 year old would like this or not we decided to take a chance. He put it one just before he went back to school and hasn't took it off since! He looks forward to serving how many steps he has taken every evening and winning coins!

    My 7 year old absolutely loves this watch! He is excited everyday to see how many steps he gets, getting coins for doing chores, etc. He even gets up in the morning with the alarm, win for us both! Highly recommend!

    Got this for my nephew who is 12 and he loves it! My daughter and he can compete in steps and points for chores without even living in the same town. Its a bit pricey but doesn't have to be charged which is a plus and helps make it not feel so expensive.

    Very easy to use, son absolutely loves it. Did purchase seperate series 1 band (garmin) which has a couple tears in it after a month of continuous wear. However, no issue since we still have the original band!

    Both my sons 5 and 7 received this last December and have worn them every day since. They love tracking their daily activity level and competing against each other to see who had more steps each day. The app is fun and entertaining as well

    Purchased the Garmin - Vívofit Jr 2 Activity Tracker for for my kid. Fun way to track steps and assign chores that you can reward with coins. Just be sure to buy the $20 protection plan as the bands wear out quickly if your kids swim a lot...

    This is a nice, water resistant watch. Bought for 4 year old and I’d have to say he was a little young, wasn’t enthralled as much as me. Great product though, bought for the correct age group.

    I bought this as a way to track my son's activity and assign him tasks. He likes the reminder feature, and the fact that we can provide him points for doing his tasks. My only feedback is they don't make enough options for little girls (just Minnie Mouse).

    Bought this for my son. Great battery life. Great tracker. Fun App. Since it's water proof, my son has not taken it off since purchasing it. Tracks steps, sleep, and activity. You can also give reward points on the app for chores.

    I bought this for my 7 year old and he loves it! It fits well, he wears it all the time. He can easily see his steps and the time - which is great. I’m so glad this doesn’t have to be charged every week. We haven’t used many features of the app just yet.

    I was shopping for a special Christmas gift for my grandson. the staff in Pottstown were a great help to me. The product itself is of good quality. Adding a two year replacement guaranty was a must for my active grandson!
