Garmin® and Marvel introduce the vívofit® jr. 2 kid’s fitness tracker and interactive mobile app featuring Marvel’s Spider-Man

OLATHE, Kan.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Garmin International, Inc., a unit of Garmin Ltd. (NASDAQ: GRMN), today
announced the vívofit
jr. 2
kid’s fitness tracker1 with Marvel’s Spider-Man
themed bands and mobile app. So much more than a fitness device, the
vívofit jr. 2 provides kids with an interactive experience where
activity unlocks adventure, shaping habits for lifelong health and
fitness. In an engaging, comic book-style Spider-Verse app experience,
kids will look forward to crushing activity minute goals to unlock new
adventures, games, gems and step icons. Enhanced animations make New
York City come to life with fun fitness facts integrated into the story
to further encourage building healthy habits. With two ultra-durable,
etched Marvel Spider-Man designs, vívofit jr. 2 bands are swim-friendly2,
feature a customizable color screen, and most important of all, boast a
battery life of over a year. See

“The Spider-Man experience, both the band and the mobile app adventure,
lets kids dive into the imaginary Super Hero world through physical
activity,” said Dan Bartel, Garmin vice president of global consumer
sales. “With the vívofit jr. 2, kids get to ‘Be the Hero’ on the
playground, and are incentivized to keep moving as their activity goals
unlock new worlds within the Spider-Verse app experience. We’re excited
to add Spider-Man to our lineup of Disney, Avengers and Star Wars bands
and app storylines.”

“With an all-new hit console video game and feature film – it’s a big
year for our favorite web-slinging Super Hero,” said Kyle Laughlin,
Senior Vice President, Games and Interactive Experiences, Disney Parks,
Experiences and Consumer Products. “Marvel’s Spider-Man is a great
addition to our successful line of characters and stories that are
inspiring kids to get active.”

The Spider-Man vívofit jr. 2 is brought to life through a corresponding
app adventure, which kids explore with the help of their parents. In Web
Warriors: A Spider-Man Adventure
, kids will unfold new adventures
and explore different dimensions of the Spider-Verse. They’ll soar high
above the city alongside Spider-Man, fight Vulture with the help of
unexpected allies, and track down the Green Goblin once and for all. The
more they meet – and exceed – their activity goals, the more of the
story they’ll get to see. In addition to uncovering additional
adventures with Marvel’s Spider-Man, kids can gain access to fun games
and more. To collect gems and get more chances to play games, kids will
need to keep logging those active minutes.

The vívofit jr. 2 is a valuable tool for parents as well and comes with
a companion app3 that acts as a parental personal assistant.
From their compatible smart device, parents can view their child’s
activity, assign chores, and schedule reminder alerts that show up on
their child’s device. Task timers help kids know how much time they have
left for each chore. For added incentivization, when kids receive and
complete a given chore, parents can reward them with virtual coins that
can be redeemed for agreed-upon rewards. The app allows for multiple
profiles, so parents and siblings with compatible Garmin devices can
have their steps listed on the step leaderboard, promoting a healthy and
fit lifestyle for the whole family.

In addition to tracking steps, sleep and active minutes, kids can also
use the vívofit jr. 2 to engage in some friendly competition with their
friends and family. Toe-to-Toe™ step challenges let kids sync with
nearby friends (or themselves) for timed step competitions. Parents can
also play by downloading the Toe-to-Toe Connect IQ™ app to a compatible
device. New family challenges let users connect with other families and
compete in weekly step challenges for extra motivation to move.

The vívofit jr. 2 featuring Marvel’s Spider-Man is available for
purchase at and has a suggested retail price of $79.99. With
vívofit jr. 2, the adventure never ends. By swapping out their band with
an accessory band (sold separately, SRP $29.99), kids can open up a
whole new world of adventure with Disney Princess, Star Wars,
Minnie Mouse, and Avengers band options*.
