I’m super excited about this little beauty. While I’ve never been a size 6 or 8, nor will I ever be, I do try and walk daily and do what I can to be healthy.
May I take a moment right here to just say, don’t compare yourself to what you see in magazines or on TV, especially you ladies. Real women have curves, real women are all shapes and sizes and all women deal with health issues in some way or another. Yes, I know women that are super small and they take time to exercise and I also know women that are plus size beauties that exercise a lot and are still gorgeous, yet are what the world considers plus size.
Right here, right now you are ENOUGH and You ARE Beautiful!
Ok, Rant over – back to this little beauty.
The Garmin Vivofit is a water proof arm band that has a battery life of ONE YEAR (yes, you read that correctly!! No charging every few day!) and will assist you in your goals for a healthier lifestyle.
It comes with 2 different size bands, it’s easy to pair up to your phone and you can actually get the bands in several colors!
With the Vivofit, you don’t have to have your smartphone to see your stats. Everything is right there ON YOUR WRIST! This tracks your steps, distance and calories burned. You can set your step goals and change as needed or allow it to adjust for you automatically based on your performance. If you’d like you can also purchase the heart rate monitoring strap and it will provide Real time heart rate monitoring!
If you’ve been sitting to long, there is a red bar that displays after one hour of inactivity and continues to if you’ve been inactive too long. Walking for a little bit removes the red bar as well as gets you moving just a little more!
I love that you can be in a group of users so that if you need the motivation and encouragement you can easily have it! For those that want to keep everything personal and secure, you can do that as well!
It monitors your sleep and shows you the amount of movement going on through the night. .
This is a pretty cool device!
You can wirelessly sync your Vivofit with your Bluetooth but it does come with a USB ANT Stick which plugs into your computer’s USB port. There is an iOS and Android app so you can use with either device.
You can quickly and easily pop into a local Verizon Store and get one for just $99!
As part of an awesome group of influencers, I received the Garmin Vivofit in exchange for this review. I’m not required to give a positive review and my JOYful opinions are all my own.
