The Vivofit Jr. 2 is the second generation of the child-friendly activity tracker by Garmin. Like the first Vivofit for kids, it tracks daily steps and sleep. Both models also allow parents to manage chores and create schedule alerts.
The first noticeable change on the Garmin Vivofit Jr. 2 that was not available in the first version is its cartoon-themed bands. This kids’ activity tracker now comes in several themes inspired by Disney, Star Wars, and Marvel movies. Let them choose the design they like best to make it more exciting for them – that is, if you are not planning on a surprise.
Also, the bands now come in stretchy and adjustable forms. The stretchy bands fit wrists up to 147mm around. If you need a larger size, you can choose an adjustable band. Designs vary for either band forms.
Another physical feature that changed in the second Garmin Vivofit for kids is its display. It now has a color screen that can be customized. Users will also be pleased to know that this upgrade does not affect the battery life. It will still last for up to more than a year.
Just like its predecessor, the Garmin Vivofit Jr. 2 also syncs with the app. When kids reach their 60-minute activity goals, the app rewards them with a step in the Adventure Trail. This time around, the game matches the design of the band. Watch your child play the Star Wars, Disney, or Marvel game every day.
