Vivofit 2 is here with minor improvements and more style

Garmin Vivofit 2

Currently Vivofit is one of the best-selling fitness trackers. The tracker already has great features and pleasant design but at CES 2015 Garmin announced a slightly updated version.

The display now has a backlight for viewing in the dark like the Garmin’s sportwatches. Another new feature are the audible alerts for the move bar (when the red bar fills up too much). Like the original Vivofit, Garmin’s Vivofit 2 shows steps, calories and hours slept, it can display the time and fitness data through its always-on screen.

The major updates come on the design front. Тhe clasp on the band is new, which should improve its ability to stay shut. The pod design is entirely different now and it is not compatible with the older pod. Garmin introduced some new designs: Style Collection, which includes the Signature Series made from premium materials such as leather and stainless steel, and Jonathan Adler designs for some funky patterned designs.

The Price of the Vivofit 2 is $129.99 or $169.99 with heart rate monitor in the box.
