Garmin Vivofit 2 Announcement

The original Garmin activity tracker has had a makeover – that’s more than just superficial. All the hit original features of the older version are still included plus plenty of new ones! Including the move bar to tell you when to get moving, 1-year battery life, personalised step goals, calorie counting and sleep tracking. The Vivofit 2 also adds in an activity timer, backlit display, and audible alert when your move bar gets full.

Garmin has also released new band colours (available separately) so you can swap out the device to suit your the mood or style.

Another big improvement has been the latch on the band itself – the original Vivofit was prone to be undone easily, and Garmin rectified this with offering the Vivokeeper for free, but this new design looks a lot more secure.

It will also auto upload data to Garmin Connect Mobile on your mobile phone (when in range). So you no longer need to manually sync your data anymore.

The Vivofit 2 will be available in 4 colours (Black, White, Pink, Navy). The Black and White versions are also available with a heart rate monitor bundle.

They’re due in the store late March.
