    Great concept, but disappointed :-(

    I was very excited when I saw all of the features that this activity tracker had. And my daughter was even more excited when I presented her with it. Oddly enough, there are several issues with the display and the unit will not sync properly. I have contacted Garmin customer service multiple times regarding this issue and they advised that it is an issue with the app, and that their engineers MIGHT have it fixed in a couple of days or up to 2 WEEKS!!! So basically, I wasted my money buying this product as it is not working as it should. My daughter is bummed about it also. Perhaps, I should have purchased a Fitbit Junior instead.

      I'm sorry to hear you've experienced an issue with your vivofit jr 2. Updates to need to be released sometimes to resolve issues, however, if there is an issue with the app it should cause the device to not function properly. Garmin works hard to be sure all of our products and apps are working properly for our customers. If you are still experiencing an issue, please go to support.garmin.com and reach out again to our product support team.

    I bought this for my daughter for Christmas. After doing some research about battery issues I bought best buys warranty with it so if I have any issues hopefully that will help. So far the watch is pretty cool. She loves having a watch, its waterproof so I don't have to worry about her getting it wet. It says her name on the home screen and has good fitness tracking for her. I don't like the simplicity of the one button. You have to scroll through options by clicking and holding the one button over and over again. It has a chore chart and reward system but its difficult to use on the watch itself. Overall I still think it's a neat option for kids and she enjoys it.

    I bought a couple of these for Christmas 2018 for my nieces. So far, so good! They do not take them off and they are still working! It's now June tomorrow and they wear them to the pool, shower, soccer games, everywhere... it's a great way to introduce independence to little ones bc you can program tasks/chores for your kids. My sister utilizes it to remind the girls that it's homework time, chore time, bed time and more so that they can earn coins. The girls love the games that come with the app too. The best part is the competition they have with one another to see who is more active. Some fit kids coming your way!

    good watch for school age kids who can read/tell time. There are alerts and reminders different activities that can be tracked as well as variety of bands that can be purchased separately. My 7 yr old niece never takes hers off. It does seem to be able to withstand getting wet. My 11 year old daughter feels this version is a bit young for her.

    This is not a Fitbit, or an Apple Watch, it is a kid's fitness tracker. If you want all the functions of those other wearables, get one of those. But if you want a kid friendly design, waterproof, comfy fitness tracker with a watch, this is great. Our only complaint is that the game your child earns with activity is always the same, so sometimes my daughter gets bored.

    My son wanted a Garmin Vivofit Jr, so of course my younger daughter insisted on having one too. To be honest, we were hesitant that it would be useful for her at 5-years-old. Man were we wrong! She absolutely loves being able to tell the time and seeing how many steps she's taking every day.

    Purchased for my daughter's birthday. Age 7, fits her well. She loves being able to see her step progress for the day and know what time it is. Syncs to smart phone. Has many options we don't use such as keeping track of chores and such. She loves just the same.

    We bought this for our 7 yr old son for his first 'real' watch. He absolutely loves it. We honestly didn't purchase it for the fitbit features, but were greatly surprised at how active he really is during the day while at school. It really is a great watch with added features!!

    Made a great birthday gift, this is the second one I got for my 8 year old. Previously got the Star Wars edition for my 6 year old. Great tracking and reminders to brush teeth and get ready for school in the morning. Good product and software from Garmin

    My son loves this activity tracker. There is an associated app for both the parent and the child to set up and monitor chores/activities. It is intuitive enough that my 10 year old son set up 4 alarms before I had a chance to download the parent app.

    My daughter loves her watch. She loves hitting her activity time goals and earning extra moves for the game found in the app. I love that it is waterproof and she doesn’t have to take it off often. I also like that it has alarms to wake her up.

    Overall, a nice activity tracker for kids. It is a little small for bigger kids, but it has some nice features. I like the ability set up chores and responsibilities in addition to activity goals. My son enjoys the tracker and app.

    My 6 year old granddaughter loved this fitbit watch. She wears it every day and keeps up with her steps. It also has a game with it that she can advance levels according to how many steps she takes. Highly recommend.

    The watch itself is sturdy and waterproof. My daughter has worn it for swimming and games and enjoys it. The steps tracker encourages kids to be active and the app provides options to set tasks, point and rewards.

    My Daughter loves using this. She is making efforts to get out and exercise more just to reach some goals. Some of the other apps are not as intuitive to use, but we were able to figure them out.

    I purchased this for my child for Christmas so we haven’t had time to use it much yet. So far she is pleased with it. Setup was easy and intuitive. The app has some fun games to encourage activity goals.

    Bought for a 4 year old to setup potty and bed time reminders. She loves telling us what time it is. The best part is the fact that it's not a distraction to her.

    This Disney-themed activity tracker was a big hit with the 5 year old girl who visits our house! She loves the color and knows who all the princesses are. I personalized it with her first name.

    Great product for kids, Fitbits version has less features and they make it difficult to set up an account for kids, thus Garmin is the winner. I have 3 kids with these.
