Garmin Vivofit jr Review
hey guys what’s up my name is Eric and I’m the techie agent and today we’re taking a look at the new Garmin vivofit jr. which is an activity sports and health tracker for kids now there have been several different attempts at making fitness or activity trackers for kids but this is Garmin’s first attempt and what they’ve done is really just taken the adult vivofit and shrunk it down to kids size you have a little pod that’s inserted into the rubber band you can get the band and varying sizes and colors and of course order replacement bands now you don’t just get a sized down version of the vivofit the vivofit jr. actually does have some kid-friendly features that make this easy for kids to use now in a couple of minutes I want to show how my kids enjoyed using this device so we’ll get to that here in a moment but before I do that I want to talk about some of the technical specifications of this device and how it performs overall now of course the device comes paired with an accompanying app called the vivofit jr. app and it works really well it’s very simple to use kids can use it but it is designed for a parent or an adult to use it allows the vivofit Junior to communicate via bluetooth to the app and allows the app to pull in all of the data that’s being collected such as how much sleep your child is getting how active they are how many steps they’ve taken for the day all of the information for each day is on one screen and you can just swipe between the days to see how your child has done each respective day the app allows you to make chores for your child which will show up on their wrist to remind them of what chores they have to do they can do that chore and then they can earn coins or earn reward points that they can then cash in now if you don’t know what kind of chores you want to give your child Garmin has a bunch of presets that you can put on the watch itself or you can of course add your own now as far as the rewards go again there’s rewards that they can earn for doing chores or being so active and again Garmin has a list of preset rewards that you can give to your child or of course you can also add your own navigation of the vivofit jr. is pretty easy you just have one that you push to go from your child’s name and the time to the date then to how many steps they’ve taken for the day and then to how many active minutes or how active they’ve been for the day then tui their task list or their chores list and then to the rewards that they’ve earned as well and then it goes back of course to the time and then your child’s name they can long press in order to synchronize you can also set a timer for various activities like brushing their teeth and then it also has a built in stopwatch or basically a timer that you can just set in case you want to tell them that they can play video games for 30 minutes or something like that now the vivofit app allows you to have multiple children with multiple devices all in one app so that’s a great feature and then it also allows parents that have a Garmin connected wearable to take their information that they’re you know synchronizing on the Garmin Connect and pull that into the children’s app to compete against their kids to see who’s taken the most steps for the day and there’s a little app called Adventure trails that allows users to see who’s walked the farthest down this animated trail so my kids actually really enjoyed this feature being able to at the end of the day see if they beat my wife and I on how many steps they had taken for the day so that’s a neat feature that my kids actually really enjoyed and you know additionally I wanted to take this and see how strong of a orderable of a device how tough of a device this was because this is going to be worn by kids and of course this is waterproof and so that’s an important feature as a parent if your kid jumps into a pool bathtub it takes a shower whatever this is waterproof and then I threw this against our floor probably a dozen times to see if I could break this and and that’s what you’re seeing here in slow motion and it held up to that kind of abuse now I did notice after a couple of days of my very active son wearing it the screen did have a little bit of a scratch now it’s not a glass screen it’s a plastic screen which is what you want because plastic is going to hold up better than glass but it is going to be prone to scratches now of course none of these features are going to matter if this isn’t something that your kid is going to enjoy wearing and using and I found that both my five-year-old and my ten-year-old both really enjoyed using it and so they loved seeing how many steps they had taken for the day they liked being able to interface or interact with the adventure Trails application the vivofit jr. application the OneTouch button was something that was simple enough for both of them to use and navigate and this was definitely motivating for them to do their chores to make sure that they went to bed on time to make sure that they were active and so if you’re looking for something to motivate your kid to keep them active to track their overall health and fitness or sleep I give this my parent recommendation now I’m going to put a link in the description below to amazon.com where you can pick this up on their website for the current pricing of about $79 make sure you do it sooner than later because inventory will be low as we approach Christmas and you can order this in a variety of different colors and again different band sizes it currently has 4.5 stars out of 5 on Amazon so it’s getting great reviews so definitely check this product out hey guys my name is Eric and I’m the techie agent thanks for watching make sure you hit
