          Comments about GARMIN vívofit Fitness Band:

          I purchased this after returning my fitbit force due to the recall. The force was great, but required frequent recharging and the screen required a button press to show anything. The vivofit has an always-on screen, is waterproof and reads ant+ heart rate monitor signals.

          I have not had any real issues with the band falling off, but like the fitbits, the band is not locked-in like a watch. If bumped just right it can pop off.

          Accuracy seems good, and the newly updated website and app - Garmin Connect - offers a number of options to tweak your settings.

          And, at last, the Garmin connect data will sync with MyFitnessPal - so you can track all of your calories in and out. Hopefully more app/website support will be coming.

          Comments about GARMIN vívofit Fitness Band:

          I wanted a fitness band with a watch feature. I bought the Fitbit Force and then just recently switched to the vivofit due to the Force recall.

          The main things I miss about the force that the vivofit does not have are the illuminating screen, vibrating alarm, and the dashboard features of the Fibit.

          The things I really enjoy about the vivofit are not having to recharge every 10 days or so, changing the band, and not having to take it off for a shower or swim.

          Even though I own a Garmin GPS watch, I was hoping that the dash board would be the same as Fitbit's, but they are way behind the program. Fitbit allows a few extra things like monitoring food log or can be done with an app and connecting with FB to do challenge yourself to walk more than your friend. Garmin does not offer this. It would be a perfect watch/fitness monitor (in my opinion) if they change those three things.

          Comments about GARMIN vívofit Fitness Band:

          I love it but I do wish it had a back light to see in the dark or dim light. Also it should come with a band to secure it so it does fly off if you catch it on clothes. Otherwise it accurate and super easy to use. It definitely keeps me motivated to move especially because of the red bar that appears if your not reaching your step goal or too stationary.

                    Comments about GARMIN vívofit Fitness Band:

                    Being an avid walker I thought this would be great. While it does keep track of steps/miles/calories I am constantly trying to get it in a comfortable position on my wrist. I have tried it on both wrists and each time I have to take it off as it is bruising my wrist. Being very small and thin, this is not a good band for me. I will be returning it. Garmin needs to improve the band and make the device more flexible. It was way too big for my wrist (using small band).
