Garmin vívofit is basically a activity tracker / fitness tracker that automatically helps you set a personal target, monitors your progress and reminds you, when it is time to move / exercise. The armband monitors your sleep, shows you how many steps you have taken and how many you still need to reach the target of the day, calories, distance and time of day in an easily readable display. You can pair your Garmin Vivofit with a Garmin heart rate monitor and get accurate pulse data while you run, exercise or work out.

If you are using a Garmin Forerunner  watch or a Garmin Edge bikecomputer already, the Garmin Vivofit is a great supplement to register your activity and restitution, when you are not working out. Syncronize wirelessly with Garmin Connect – Garmin’s free online training universe – and participate in challenges as well as saving, planning sharing your progress with other users.
