I was very pleased with the vivofit band. I purchased it to help keep me on track with some healthier demands such as getting more steps in a day. Also to monitor my sleep pattern. It was easy for me to set up and I am not the greatest tech person. Would buy this brand again. I like that it has a battery like a watch so it doesn’t go dead if not charged each evening. I put it on my wrist the day I received it and have not taken it off yet. Even has the date and time of day on it which I did not realize it when I ordered it. Would recommend this item for someone looking to keep track of there steps and sleep.

Very inaccurate

This product is very inaccurate . I walked a mile it said I walked 10 steps. It says you can not return it by mail. But you also can’t return it to a Wal-Mart store either. And I can not find the seller information on the Wal-Mart website. Don’t buy!!!!!!!!

Just like a fit bit, but better.

I was looking into getting a fitbit. They are all the rage, right? I discovered though that a fitbit would not sync up with my Samsung Galaxy 5. I went looking and did some research, read reviews, and finally decided on a Garmin. Not only was it cheaper than a fitbit and capable of pairing up with my phone, it had the same options plus a display that the cheapest fitbit had. Sometimes the step count is delayed, but it catches up. Some reviews said it didn’t count accurately or at all. Did you know that the fitbit has that same issue? How do I know? My husband has a fitbit, and we’ve been comparing. The Garmin is bulkier, more like a watch, but not uncomfortable. So with my vivofit I have a step counter, a goal count to strive for, how many miles my steps add up to, the calories I’ve burned, the time, the date, and a red bar that appears when I’ve been inactive for a bit. Sometimes I feel very judged by that red bar, but it’s a little reminder. It also tracks my sleeping. I can see on my phone how well I have rested the night before. I would recommend this to anyone. Love mine.

Great motivator!

First off I have to say that so far this has been working great for me! I have only had it for a little over a week but seems to be doing what it claims to do. It does count steps but sometimes not very accurately. When I first got it it counted over 1000 steps while I was in the shower. But I think as you wear it it starts to get more accurate in sensing your movements because it hasn’t done that since. I have worn it swimming in a lake and a pool and have had no trouble with it. Seeing the little red bar really gets me up and moving and using Garmin connect is pretty easy. It did take quite a few tries to get it to sync the first time but since then it has been very easy. Unfortunately it cannot work with my phone but works great with my computer. Overall a great product and has a lot more features for the price versus similar products from other companies.

I like it!

I’ve been trying cheap pedometers and was getting what I paid for. I finally decided to return the cheaper ones that didn’t seem accurate and paid a little more money for the Garmin Vivofit. So far, I am pretty happy with the unit. I’ve had it for a couple of weeks now. I don’t know that it is completely accurate, but certainly more than the cheap pedometers were. I chose the Garmin over the fitbit models, after looking thru many reviews. They seemed similar, but one of the features that I liked over the fitbit is that there is a clock feature on this one. I just wear it in place of my watch and don’t have two items on my wrists. I also like that I can see my steps on the screen rather than having to look at my smart phone or computer. One feature that I don’t care for is that it doesn’t track steps when I ride either my regular bike or stationary bike. From reading other reviews, I found that I can attach the unit to my shoe and then it will track the steps. I would prefer not to have to take it off my wrist and move it to my shoe every time I want to ride a bike, though. Overall, I am very happy with the Garmin Vivofit.
