FitBit bands might be trendy right now but Fitbit is hardly the only name in wearable fitness technology. Garmin is perhaps best known for its personal navigation devices, but the proliferation of smartphones forced the company to branch out and explore other opportunities. We’re certainly glad it did, but the Garmin Vivofit Fitness Band is one of our favorite fitness tracking wearables. It tracks your steps and your calorie burn, it monitors your sleep and perhaps most impressively, the battery lasts for more than a year.
Here are the important details:
- Move Bar – Motivates you to be active throughout the day by displaying a red move bar after one hour of inactivity. Additional segments light up for every 15 minutes of inactivity. Just walk for a couple of minutes to reset.
- 24/7 Wearable – Stylish, comfortable and water resistant2 wristband that is always on and ready to go.
- Long battery life – Stays on for more than a year without having to change the battery. Easy-to-read display – View the time of day and your stats right on your wrist.
- Achieve your goals – Vivofit learns your activity level and assigns a personalized goal each morning. Count calories – Records calories burned throughout the day including base metabolic rate.
- Monitor your sleep – Set the sleep mode when you go to bed to track the quality of your rest.
Amazon typically sells the Garmin Vivofit Fitness Band for $49.99, which is a fair price for such a great band. But for today only as part of a Prime Day countdown deal, the band is just $39.99 with free Prime shipping.
