Garmin has introduced vivo.jr a motivator and activity tracker for kids that encourages them to be more active. The app also enables parents to track and monitor their children’s activities with the mobile app for parents, this app allows parents to assign chores and hand out virtual rewards. The app also includes helpful tools for parents to motivate kids, who can assign responsibilities and agreed-upon rewards for completed tasks.

“We’re excited to announce our first wearable just for kids – the vívofit jr.,” said Marc Bainbridge, Garmin Fitness Category Manager. “The vívofit jr. was designed with kids and parents in mind, from its durable and comfortable band to its engaging app that motivates kids to get moving, while keeping parents involved.”

With the vívofit jr., kids have their very own activity tracker to help create healthy habits while they are young and keep them for life. The vivo.jr has a nonstaining, one-piece band, one-year battery life and water resistance. The watch face tells time, includes the date and even reminds kids to stay active with a move bar. It can also be personalized to include a child’s name.

The vívofit jr., also comes with a free app that features a mobile adventure trail to unlock for kids and task management for parents. Parents can add multiple children and see their daily activity, responsibilities, sleep and more when the vívofit jr automatically syncs to their smartphone. Days are turned into a competition as parents and kids compete as a family in a daily step challenge. When kids achieve their 60-minute daily play goal they’ll unlock fun facts on the app’s adventure trail, motivating them to keep reaching their goals.


The vívofit jr., band is designed for ages four to nine with a recommended price of R 1599.00.
