Get the kids moving with this rugged little smartwatch. Especially if your child likes Marvel or Disney movies, the vivofit Jr. 3 might be the perfect activity tracker for them.

Why should you buy the Garmin vivofit Jr. 3

The Garmin Vivofit Jr 3 sits somewhere in the middle of the market for price and features - and it does everything quite well. The colour screen might not be as crisp as the one found on the Garmin Venu 2 but it's good enough for a kids activity tracker.

Most importantly, you won't have to worry about the watch running out of juice anytime soon: the vivofit Jr.3 has a year-long battery life, the best in its class. The watch is also easy to navigate with a button on the side of the watch case.

Like most trackers, this one counts steps and records activities as active time. It's pretty accurate and the clear progress is pleasing.

As an example, once kids have logged 60 minutes of activity, they can access ‘adventures’ within the partner app on a parent’s phone. It’s a great idea and at times the watch can be quite educational, which will certainly please adults.
