When paired with a vívofit® jr., vívofit jr. 2 or vívofit jr. 3 fitness tracker, the Garmin Jr.™ app¹ is a parent’s resource for monitoring their child’s steps, sleep and active minutes² each day. Parents can use the app to assign daily chores and reward their kids with virtual coins for a job well done. You can see how your kid stacks up on the daily steps leaderboard and even compete with other families in weekly step challenges. As your kid meets their 60-minute daily goal, their activity unlocks adventures within the app that parents and kids can read and play together.

With the Garmin Jr. app on their compatible smartphone, parents can:
• View and manage their kid’s daily activity, sleep and chore list
• Keep kids on top of tasks, such as homework, practice time and brushing teeth with customizable on-device alerts3
• Reward kids by giving them virtual coins for completing chores
• Let their kid compete with family members and other connections in custom challenges

The Parent Helper
The mobile app lets parents manage the key functions of any vívofit jr. fitness tracker. You can add individual profiles for each child to see their steps, sleep, daily active minutes and chore data.

A World of Adventures for Kids to Explore
The more they meet — and exceed — their activity goals, the more of the story they’ll get to see. Your child’s app experience corresponds with the style of band you purchase. Additional bands unlock new adventures that you and your kids can explore together, such as the following:

With an Iron Man or Black Panther vívofit jr. 3 band, your child will unfold new adventures and relive the most exciting moments of the Infinity Saga alongside their favorite Marvel heroes. They’ll help the Avengers stop Loki’s destructive plans, save the world from Ultron and even travel through the quantum realm to take back the Infinity Stones and defeat Thanos.

Magical Kingdoms: A Disney Princess Adventure
With a Disney Princess band for their vívofit jr. 2 or vívofit jr. 3, children will get to dream big like their favorite princess characters. They’ll unfold new adventures and uncover the different magical kingdoms with Ariel, Rapunzel, Belle, Mulan and Jasmine.

Garmin World Tour
With a blue stars, digi camo or lilac floral vívofit jr. 3 band, your child will unlock educational adventures and see some of the most epic places on Earth. They’ll explore the pyramids of ancient Egypt, learn fitness moves that will help keep them warm in Antarctica and even encounter sharks in the Great Barrier Reef. As they go, kids will take educational pop quizzes and fill in their virtual scrapbooks with memories of their adventures.

Into the Unknown — A Disney Frozen 2 Adventure
With a Disney Frozen 2 band for their vívofit jr. 2 fitness tracker, your child can discover adventure in Arendelle and beyond. They’ll have fun with Anna and Elsa, reunite with Olaf and uncover mysteries they never could have imagined.

Fit JR 2 used with APP

Encourages child to do chores. It’s fun for the kids. It tracks sleep + activity. Can time brushing teeth!! Or can time anything really, like reading, writing or even time on device. Parent sets up syncing the watch with app, it’s very easy to do and the app walks you through everything. We can determine how many coins each chore earns, and the kids can redeem for “prizes” which are customized by the parent. We can choose the prize and how much coins until they can redeem. Like for us, trip to the Boardwalk is 250 coins, but family movie night is 25. She gets more coins when she does more challenging chores like cleaning hamster cage, and one coin for everyday stuff like homework and teeth brush. Totally works for us and I want a watch now ;)

Only thing that bugs me: I wish this had a GPS in the watch!!! I’d pay twice as much for the watch if it had that feature. Would be nice just in case they are missing. More and more kids are missing everyday. With a name like Garmin, I thought that would come standard.

Issue with tap challenge - vivofit jr.

My son has a vivofit jr. I saw an update for the app last night (version 2.6) and updated the app. The update mentioned a new tap challenge when you’ve earned your 60 minute activity goal. This included a picture of what I believe the tap challenge looks like. Thanks My son came home and we synced his vívofit Jr. to the app on my phone. It showed that he had earned the 60 minute goal and could make his move on the adventure trail. He made his move, but then we couldn’t figure out how to get to the tap challenge that was highlighted in this update. I tried looking for help on the website, but was unable to find anything on how to get to the tap challenge once the 60 minute activity goal has been met. I chatted online with two different support center chat agents. Nether of them could help me because neither of them had heard of this tap challenge. Clearly I’m missing something or they highlighted a new feature in the app that they didn’t actually add to the app.

Other than this issue, my son loves loves loves his vivofit jr. He asked for it for Christmas and we were a little hesitant (thinking why does a 6 year old need to count his steps- he’s a super active kid). But it’s so much more than just a step counter. We love it!

Great Product

So far, I absolutely love this product! I bought this for my 7 year old in hopes to get her more motivated and to be more consistent with her every day to day tasks. So far, it’s doing well! She gets really excited about the rewards system. I love that I can choose any amount I want for her to get per task. I really love that it tracks her sleeping as well. My daughter had sleep apnea and being able to know how much deep sleep she’s actually getting and when she is struggling to sleep is very amazing!

She really enjoys wearing it. It took some getting used to, but now she’s all about it! I set alarms to remind her to do things like brushing her hair and teeth and to wake up in the morning for school. I give her points for staying on task. It’s working wonders for my baby! I love it!

My only complaints are that I really wish it automatically updated more often. Occasionally it does when I’m in close proximity to her and the app is open... but more often than not, I have to manually update it multiple times a day in order to have accurate information... but it’s really not that big of a deal, given all of the other cool perks. I also wish their were more picture icons to pair with the alarms. But ultimately... I’m very satisfied!
