Garmin announces Star Wars and Frozen 2 fitness trackers for kids, Star Wars watches for adults
Garmin continues to release new wearables with a few models featuring popular Disney design elements. New Vivofit Jr. 2 fitness trackers for kids join a growing collection of Legacy Saga series watches for adults.
While there are a number of wearables designed to help you track activity and exercises, sometimes people need customization or various styles to help motivate them to wear these wearables. Garmin has been working to expand its available Disney-themed options for both kids and adults.
Current Vivofit Jr. 2 options include Disney Princess, Minnie Mouse, Spider-Man, Star Wars, and Marvel Avengers. The new Frozen 2 options include Anna and Elsa options with the adjustable watch band closure for a price of $69.99.
As stated by Garmin, with Olaf's encouragement, new fitness training cards teach kids basic exercise moves, like jumping jacks, downward dog, mountain climbers and more. The fun continues with an interactive Tap Challenge that lets kids collect crystals that unlock more adventures. When kids meet daily activity minutes, they're rewarded with more time in the mobile challenge.
The two new Star Wars models are provided for the light side and dark side, also at a price of $69.99 with adjustable bands.
Parents can also use the Garmin app to monitor activity, manage and assign chores, and provide rewards to help encourage good behavior. Yoda acts as the coach for kids with the new fitness training cards.
I am tempted to purchase the Darth Vader model for the Tie Fighter watch face alone. While this is a cool watch face, the experience also includes Star Wars avatar options and Star Wars-themed award badges for successfully completing fitness and exercise achievements.
The Rey model is available in 40mm while the Darth Vader one is 45mm. These Star Wars-themed watches are available for $399.99 and are essentially themed Vivoactive 4 watches.
