Available in several designs and funky colours, this fitness tracker features a one-piece band; being a kid’s tracker, it won’t get lost at all as there are no clasps involved. Having no built-in GPS tracker, it is strictly a fitness tracker and not a monitor.
Implore your kids to get chores done
Vivofit jr turns chores into games, something all kids easily connect to and like. Each time they complete a task, they are awarded virtual coins. Without a doubt, they will want to earn more virtual coins and in the process, complete chores in a timely manner.
You can make it a bit more fun and competitive by creating a family ledger, with the highest earners earning the top positions. You can also reward them with the free Garmin apps appropriated to them as a more tangible’ reward. In the long run, they stay healthy and active!
About the band
For wrists up to 145mm, the band will fit perfectly without straining the kid. For children with wider wrists, which will happen eventually as they grow, there are XL accessory bands for you to choose from; these are comfortable for wrists between 146mm and 170mm. ideally, this is a tracker for children between ages four and nine.
Being waterproof for up to 5 atm, the fitness tracker is perfectly safe for use in a swimming pool. Its band takes a year to wear out and so does its coin-cell battery. Retailing at $80 (AU$130, £80), it is worth the price as it implores your kid to do more chores.
Currently, the vivofit jr is available at BestBuy and Target; soon, it will be available at Amazon,Walmart, Toys R Us, the Dick’s Sporting Goods and plenty of other stores this fall. We’re positive you’ll love the transformation that comes with this kid’s fitness tracker.
