The Vivofit band may be a little late to the game and there are quite a few other bands in the market but the Garmin has a few interesting things going for it.
Vivofit has come simple but clever features. Steps, distance, calories and time. The band allows you to keep track of your steps and tells you how far away from your target you are and even tells you if you have been inactive for too long.
There are two models of Vivofit. The basic model and one that come with a heartrate monitor included.
The band will always be on, this means it will be tracking certain body parameters even while you sleep. So you can see how many hours you sleep and how many of those are restful.
Regular syncing will secure your information locally with your computer and you then have the option to share this information via the normal social media outlets and via Garmin Connect.
Some of us in store have already pre-ordered these bands and we will be getting them in stock as soon as they are available. I am sure there will be more images and information to share after Wednesday.
