Garmin® and Disney bring motivation and imagination to the playground with the introduction of the vívofit® jr. 2 activity tracker for kids featuring Disney, Star Wars and Marvel

Garmin International Inc., a unit of Garmin Ltd. (NASDAQ: GRMN), today
announced the vívofit jr. 2 activity tracker1 for kids with
Disney, Star Wars and Marvel-themed bands and mobile app
adventures. Featuring designs of kids’ favorite characters including
Minnie Mouse, BB-8TM and Marvel’s Captain America, each band
theme offers a corresponding mobile app adventure where children can
complete missions to advance in the journey and unlock new character
step icons, with the help of their parents, by achieving 60 minutes of
activity every day. This exciting collaboration leverages kids’ favorite
characters, encouraging children to be active, and ultimately shaping
habits for lifelong health and fitness.

“The vívofit jr. 2 is all about making fitness fun for kids, instilling
at a young age the joy of leading an active lifestyle,” said Cliff
Pemble, Garmin president and CEO. “We are honored to team up in such a
unique way with Disney, tapping into the brilliance of their creative
storytelling experts. Through collaborating across the brands of Disney, Star
and Marvel and infusing their characters and stories into our
product and mobile app, we’re able to offer kids and their parents a
gamified approach to fitness like no other.”

“Disney is committed to creating healthier generations, and we’ve worked
with Garmin to make healthy living fun with a wearable product featuring
the characters and stories we know kids love,” said Josh Silverman,
executive vice president, global licensing, Disney Consumer Products and
Interactive Media. “By combining Garmin’s expertise in wearable
technologies with Disney storytelling, we’re entering a category with
the potential to influence the way kids stay active.”

Designed for comfort and 24/7 wearability, this swim-friendly2
activity tracker features a customizable color screen, a 1+ year battery
life3 and comes with one of two kid-tough band options: a
stretchy band for smaller wrists or an adjustable band for older kids.
The always-on color screen shows the time, the date, and even reminds
kids to stay active with a move bar. In addition to tracking steps and
sleep, the device measures active minutes, inspiring kids to meet the
recommended 60 minutes of daily activity. Once this 60-minute goal is
reached, kids can advance in new adventures, motivating them to do their
best. Completing fitness goals also allows kids to unlock new character
step icons, such as Minnie Mouse, BB-8, and Iron Man, which can be
customized on the band display. Toe-to-ToeTM step challenge
encourages friendly competition, letting kids initiate timed step
competitions with their nearby friends who also sport a vívofit jr. 2

The vívofit jr. 2 experience comes to life with the free companion app4,
managed by parents, and each band design comes with a corresponding
Disney, Star Wars or Marvel mobile app adventure. From this app,
parents can review their children’s daily activities and even assign
chores which show up as icons on the device, perfect for kids who need
reminders. For kids who tend to procrastinate, schedule alerts can be
set up to nudge them to finish their homework or brush their teeth. Kids
can use the task timer on the device so that they know how long they
have left for each chore. The app allows for multiple profiles so
parents and siblings with compatible Garmin devices can also have their
steps listed on the step leaderboard, promoting healthy competition for
the whole family.

Accessory bands are available for purchase separately, letting kids
explore all three adventures by swapping out their band with a new one
and unlocking a new adventure*.

The three different app experiences include:

Mickey’s Birthday Surprise: A Disney Adventure

In this adventure, kids go alongside Minnie Mouse and her friends as
they plan a surprise birthday party for Mickey Mouse. Decorate for the
party with Daisy Duck, whip up the birthday cake with Goofy, and get
everything ready without Mickey Mouse finding out!

BB-8’s Adventure: A Star Wars Story

In this adventure, kids go alongside BB-8 and the pilot Zepha as they
tackle app adventures on the planet Jakku. Search abandoned starships
for missing parts, meet Maz Kanata, and help rescue BB-8 from danger!

Ultron’s Revenge: A Marvel Avenger’s Mission

In this adventure, kids go alongside Captain America and the Avengers as
they tackle app adventures in New York City and try to defeat Ultron.

mischievous Loki, and even accompany Black Widow on top secret
S.H.I.E.L.D. missions.
