Garmin's latest fitness band for kids gives motivation

Techstination feature for Friday, April 6, 2018

Techstination, your destination for gadgets and gear.   I’m Fred Fishkin.      Tech can often work against parents who encourage their kids to be more active and get outdoors.   So getting them off the sofa and away from their screens…can be challenging.   The latest fitness band designed for kids from Garmin can help.  The VivoFit Junior 2 is designed to provide motivation.     Andy Beckman,  North American Director of Product Strategy…

“So it’s got over a year battery life, so there’s no charging for the parents.    The kids can wear it into the bath or the shower, wherever they prefer or even if they go swimming in the summertime.  Basically it keeps track of their activity throughout the day so if they get sixty minutes of activity throughout the day then they will actually earn one move on our adventure map.”

There are reminders for chores and such too and on top of that Garmin has partnered with Disney for the designs.   The price…under seventy dollars.
