The vívofit jr2 provides kids with an interactive experience where activity unlocks adventure, shaping habits for lifelong health and fitness. In an engaging, comic book-style Spider-Verse app experience, kids will look forward to crushing activity minute goals to unlock new adventures, games, gems and step icons. Enhanced animations make New York City come to life with fun fitness facts integrated into the story to further encourage building healthy habits. With two ultra-durable, etched Marvel Spider-Man designs, vívofit jr2 bands are swim-friendly2, feature a customizable color screen, and most important of all, boast a battery life of over a year.

The Spider-Man vívofit jr2 is brought to life through a corresponding app adventure, which kids explore with the help of their parents. In Web Warriors: A Spider-Man Adventure, kids will unfold new adventures and explore different dimensions of the Spider-Verse. They’ll soar high above the city alongside Spider-Man, fight Vulture with the help of unexpected allies, and track down the Green Goblin once and for all. The more they meet – and exceed – their activity goals, the more of the story they’ll get to see. In addition to uncovering additional adventures with Marvel’s Spider-Man, kids can gain access to fun games and more. To collect gems and get more chances to play games, kids will need to keep logging those active minutes.

The vívofit jr2 is a valuable tool for parents as well and comes with a companion app3 that acts as a parental personal assistant. From their compatible smart device, parents can view their child’s activity, assign chores, and schedule reminder alerts that show up on their child’s device. Task timers help kids know how much time they have left for each chore. For added incentivization, when kids receive and complete a given chore, parents can reward them with virtual coins that can be redeemed for agreed-upon rewards. The app allows for multiple profiles, so parents and siblings with compatible Garmin devices can have their steps listed on the step leaderboard, promoting a healthy and fit lifestyle for the whole family.

In addition to tracking steps, sleep and active minutes, kids can also use the vívofit jr2 to engage in some friendly competition with their friends and family. Toe-to-Toe™ step challenges let kids sync with nearby friends (or themselves) for timed step competitions. Parents can also play by downloading the Toe-to-Toe Connect IQ™ app to a compatible device. New family challenges let users connect with other families and compete in weekly step challenges for extra motivation to move.
