Garmin’s Vivofit Jr. rewards kids for being active

Garmin has painted the Vivofit band in lively colors and shrunk it down to create its first activity tracker for kids. Vivofit Jr. can track steps and sleep, as well as how long your kid has been moving, just like the band for adults. And, yes, it can also be worn in the pool. However, since it was still made with children in mind, its companion app comes with some extra features: gaming aspects and the ability to monitor multiple kids’ activities.

It unlocks a fun fact whenever your children achieve their 60-minute daily play goal, for instance. Your kids will also earn coins for every task you assign, which they can then use to redeem (pre-approved!) in-app rewards. In case your offsprings are procrastinators who can barely be motivated by virtual coins, though, you can also set a timer on their bands to make sure they don’t keep putting off their chores till later. If you don’t mind dropping $80 for something that looks much, much better than that free tracker McDonald’s bundled with its Happy Meals, check out your local Target, Best Buy, Toys R Us, Walmart and other electronics retailers.
