Created on Mon, 17 October 2016, 12:26

Do you worry that your child is too plugged in and doesn’t get enough physical activity? Help your child develop healthy habits while young that can be kept throughout life. Check out Garmin’s first wearable just for kids- the vivofit jr. It’s a motivator and activity tracker that encourages your child to stay on the move. It tracks steps, sleep and activity on the way to the recommended 60-minute daily play goal. The vivofit jr. comes with a free, innovative app that features a mobile adventure trail for your child to unlock, and task management for parents. As your child reaches the 60-minute daily play goal, fun facts are unlocked on the app’s adventure trail, motivating your child to keep reaching the goal. From the app, you can add multiple children and see their daily activity, responsibilities, sleep and more when the vivofit jr. automatically syncs to your smartphone. The simple to use app allows you to assign tasks to your child to complete to earn coins that can be redeemed for agreed-upon rewards. Preloaded tasks are managed through your mobile device and can be set to recur daily or weekly, or personalized chores can be created. You can even turn every day into a fun competition as you and your child compete as a family in a daily step challenge!
