I'm looking for a wristband for my 10yo daughter. This Fitbit Ace looks nice, but then I found a big problem: it's not swimming pool friendly
Same situation, i went to JB today and discovered the same thing… we are going to go with the vívofit® jr. 2 - $129 retail. Water proof - 1 year battery life - no charging required.
Now we just have to wait for OzB to work on a christmas miracle to deliver us a bargain!!
:) me too. But considering the Vivofit Jr as well.
Also i learnt that vivofit jr1.0 is the slip on wrist band, where 2.0 is normal lock in style.
apparently 1.0 has the tendency to snap as the kids may pull it too hard, and over time it wares out.
@snks2k: My kids want the Vivofit as well, but I'm wondering what the main difference between jr 1 and 2 is? I notice the band is not adjustable which might be a problem with the 1, but could I just buy an adjustable band separately??
@Kirsada: check out the main differences int he below link
worth the extra IMO - how can you put a price your your children's happiness? tell me?! hahaha lol
ohh amazon have it for $128! best deal by $1!
@snks2k: Hahahaha and can't put a price on our sanity! Imagine the whingeing… Thanks for the comparison link, will check it out!
Me three. Kids been asking for this
Me four 😁 but have 3 kids asking for it
agreed.. would only be a matter of time before this is $89 down the drain

I ended up getting the mi band 3 for my 9yr old
Its for my 7 year old, girl, if it doesn't come in purple, its not an option. haha
Does the band fit or did you get a kids sized band? My 6yo wants a fitness band and I’m not willing to pay the price for a vivofit jr as he’ll destroy it within days so was looking at the Xiaomi
My daughter used to have an original Vivofit when she was 8. It came with two bands (large and small), and the smaller one fit her wrist.
My wife has concern with not being able to turn off Bluetooth on Mi bands.
Another issue with Mi band is after some time, the watch could get popped out of the band unexpectedly (I got that problem with Mi band 2)
Do any of them let you turn off Bluetooth? I've had a few different types over the years and never been aware of that being an option, but that might just be my ignorance.
I haven't had much experience with bands: one Garmin Vivosmart HR+, one Garmin Vivofit, one Mi band, and one Mi band 2. Both of the Garmin ones have the option to turn Bluetooth off. Neither of the Mi bands has.
@Averell: Thanks Averell. I used to have a Vivofit and never realised that I could turn Bluetooth off. Now that I know that it's an option, it's something I'm going to look out for.
Damn I paid full price for this and it is currently in transit from Big W
