 |  |  |  |  |  |  September 30, 2016

If you are a parent and have an electronic wearable that you keep on most of the time, I can guarantee that at one point or another your child has wanted to try it out. Garmin has unveiled a fitness tracker for kids that can also help encourage them to do chores.


The Garmin vivofit jr has kid-sized wrist straps and comes in several vibrant color schemes. The wearable is designed to encourage kids to get their 60 minutes of play each day. It can track activities, steps, and sleep. When paired with a smartphone app on the parent’s phone you can set up custom chores that reward children with virtual coins when they finish their tasks. You and your kids can come up with real-world rewards they can trade those virtual coins in for.

Garmin’s vivofit jr. is available now for $79.99(USD).
