Garmin vívofit waterproof fitness band

Looking for another fitness band? It's time for Garmin to jump into the wearables market with the vívofit Fitness Band. What makes this different from some of the other wrist-worn activity trackers?

It uses coin batteries and has a rated battery life of approx 1+ year. It also syncs using Bluetooth Smart or ANT. Like the Polar Loop, the Garmin vivofit is waterproof (the vivofit is rated to 50 m). It can also monitor your heart rate using a chest heart rate monitor (but it syncs with ANT heart rate monitors while the Polar Loop connects to Bluetooth Smart heart rate monitors). The Garmin vivofit loads your information to Garmin Connect, the online community for Garmin users and it comes in different color options.
