Garmin have teamed up with Disney for their new Garmin Vivofit Jr 2 for kids. I’m sharing one of my favourite products with you today, it is a great tool to keep kids fit and healthy.
These new activity tracker watches for kids feature, Disney, Star Wars and Marvel themed bands plus mobile app adventures.
The mobile app adventures are aligned with the band for each watch. There is Minnie Mouse, Marvel Avengers and BB-8. You only get to unlock these adventures after you do 60 minutes of activity each day. Once you get over the 60 minute mark you can move more steps in the game.
If your kids are like mine, anything extra to make playtime more fun is great.
My girls love running and exercise. Having a competition between friends is always a bonus, plus the added incentive to play a game after doing more activity is a fun for kids.
Not only are the Garmin Viviofit Jr 2 fun for kids they are comfortable to wear as well. They are able to be worn in the shower and when swimming.
The kids can unlock new characters for their step icon, so Minnie Mouse or Iron Man can be displayed on the band. I know my kids would love this, earning new characters for their watch would be another great incentive to do more for them.
One other plus for parents is that the Vivofit Jr 2 has the ability to have chores as part of the program. Yes, challenge your children to do more around the house. They can earn rewards such as pocket money or an outing to the movies or get the item they wish to buy from the shops. You have the ablitity to create your own rewards if you wish to.
Once your child or children have done all tasks you can tick them off via the app and once the device syncs back to the app the child will get reward coins alerting them that they have completed a task or tasks.
The accessory bands are available to purchase separately and this will allow kids to explore all three adventures with their new bands.
Below are the new adventures available:
Mickey’s Birthday Surprise: A Disney Adventure
In this adventure, kids go alongside Minnie Mouse and her friends as they plan a surprise birthday party for Mickey Mouse. Decorate for the party with Daisy Duck, whip up the birthday cake with Goofy, and get everything ready without Mickey Mouse finding out!
BB-8’s Adventure: A Star Wars Story
In this adventure, kids go alongside BB-8 and the pilot Zepha as they tackle app adventures on the planet Jakku. Search abandoned starships for missing parts, meet Maz Kanata, and help rescue BB-8 from danger!
Ultron’s Revenge: A Marvel Avenger’s Mission
In this adventure, kids go alongside Captain America and the Avengers as they tackle app adventures in New York City and try to defeat Ultron. Meet the invincible Iron Man at Tony Stark’s lab, help Thor capture the mischievous Loki, and even accompany Black Widow on top secret S.H.I.E.L.D. missions.
I’m sharing this wonderful activity watch from Garmin, as I believe that healthy habits start early. Having kids do more exercise, more time outdoors and foster a good sense of competition is a great thing to instill in your kids. Plus making chores around the house fun and more of a competition helps mum out a lot too. Yes I know that dads will love it too.
Maybe if your child is having a birthday soon or purchase one for Christmas. I’m sure your kids will be so excited to get one as a present.
I hope you love this preview of the new Garmin vívofit jr. 2
We love Garmin and love what they do for kids health, oh and parents as well. I am sure you will love them as much as we do.
