These days, it’s all about having the right technology to stay in shape. With the Garmin VivoFit, say goodbye to your personal trainer and hello to a device that helps you reach your fitness goals.


The Garmin VivoFit retails for $129.99, and it’s worth every penny. This device is smart enough to learn your daily activity level and provide you with a reasonable daily goal based on this information. It can also remind you of when you need to start moving in order to reach your goals.


The device, which can be comfortably worn on your wrist, displays your calories and steps. As an added bonus, it tracks your sleep for you. The Garmin VivoFit is water-resistant and comes in a wide range of colors: black, red, blue, slate, purple and teal.


You can also purchase a heart rate monitor from Garmin to further enhance the functionality of the device. The heart monitor can provide you with data on your heart whenever you engage in physical activity. The price is $169.99 if you want to bundle the monitor with your VivoFit.


While there are several fitness tracking devices available on the market, it’s hard to argue with this product from Garmin, a company known for reliable technology.
