Live smarter with the Garmin vivofit 2 Activity Tracker in either camouflage or brown. This wristband-style device tracks and displays your number of steps walked, distance travelled, sleep time, calories burned, and time spent active as well as showing the time of day on its unobtrusive LCD display. When connected to compatible smartphones and tablets via Bluetooth Smart, the vivofit 2 transmits your activity to the free Garmin Connect mobile app.
The vivofit 2 is designed to motivate you towards better fitness and a healthier, more active lifestyle. It will notify you if you spend over an hour without moving around, and learns your activity level before assigning daily goals that adjust over time as you progress. Goals are rewarded with virtual badges on Garmin Connect, where you can join online challenges with other users or compete with friends to earn bragging rights.
Your vivofit 2's user-replaceable battery lasts for over a year, and the device is water resistant to 164'. It comes with a large and small band as well as an ANT stick for connecting to your computer.
Sitting for prolonged periods of time can trigger undesirable metabolic state changes. The move bar encourages you to move, breaking up long periods of inactivity. Your vivofit 2 remembers how long it's been since you moved around, and after 1 hour of inactivity, it reminds you by vibrating or beeping and filling in the first segment of the move bar. Additional segments are filled in after every 15 minutes of inactivity. Reset the move bar with two minutes of continuous walking.
Garmin Connect Online Community
At Garmin Connect, you can track your progress and earn virtual badges for extra motivation. You can also join online challenges and connect, compete, and compare with friends and family around the world. Garmin Connect is available on your computer or compatible mobile device.
Over time, your vivofit 2 will learn your activity level, and assign a step goal. If you meet your goal it will gradually increase, encouraging you to be more active, and if you fail to reach your goal it will start to reduce so you aren't discouraged and can get back on track. By default, auto goal is enabled, but the user can alternatively enter a manual goal via Garmin Connect which will be sent to the device.
Additional Workout Features
Use your vivofit 2's activity timer to record a timed activity, such as a walk or run, which can be saved and sent to Garmin Connect. You can even pair your vivofit 2 with an optional heart rate monitor to record your heart rate and zone data and get more accurate calorie burn information. For detailed calorie tracking, you can create an account at MyFitnessPal and link it to your Garmin Connect account. This allows you to compare calories consumed to your total calories burned, which the vivofit 2 records throughout the day. Finally, the built-in accelerometer calculates distance for indoor walking and running, without need for a separate foot pod.
Set the sleep mode at bedtime and monitor your rest. Your vivofit 2 tracks your sleep activity during the night and can upload the data in the morning to Garmin Connect, so you can view your hours asleep as well as periods of movement.
Your vivofit 2 saves battery by syncing with your connected Bluetooth Smart mobile device at strategic times throughout the day, like when a goal is met or when several steps have been taken since the last sync. Or, use the included ANT USB stick to sync directly with your computer.
The vivofit 2 has a water rating of 5 ATM (164', or 50 metres), so you can shower, swim, and dive without losing track of your activity.
