Is your child a young athlete? Maybe your family intends to host a friendly “get moving” competition. Either way, you can get your kids involved with tracking their steps and more with the Garmin vivofit jr activity and fitness tracker.
In addition to the unique watch face that tells both the time and date, your child will enjoy an interactive experience that tracks not only their activity but their chores. Their watch becomes your personal assistant.
The watch pairs with a dedicated Garmin app that allows both parents and children to check up on their score. Parents can add chore data, and new chores show up on the kids’ band—no nagging required. You can use it for big chores or even as daily reminders for the little things like brushing their teeth.
Does your child like to put off chores until the last minute? Add a task timer to send them notifications that the time left to do their homework or complete their duties is running out.
The vivofit jr also sets 60-minute daily activity goals designed to keeps kid active. It tracks steps, activities, and even their sleep habits. When the app sees they met their goals, it unlocks fun games like a mobile adventure trail or fun facts for rewards.
As kids knock down each goal, they ten collect virtual coins that they trade in for real-world rewards like extra screen time.
You can even add multiple children to the app to keep track of all your kids in one place.
It's already clear that we love this watch, but we also love that it doesn’t require charging. It runs for a full year without ever needing a USB charger. It’s even swimming pool-friendly and comes in a one-size-fits-all elastic size for kids between four and nine. Older kids can buy the XL accessory band or the vivofit 3 band ensure a snug fit.
We love the watch because its both low maintenance and interactive, which is precisely what you need as you try to juggle school, work, life, and getting your steps in.
