This refurbished Garmin works well as a backup to my main Garmin Forerunner watch. It connected to my phone with ease. Garmin Connect works well with it and instantly uploads all of my workouts. Although this watch has a backlight, the notifications are still a bit hard to read (if you have poor vision like me). Speaking of notifications, there was no problem syncing my Samsung galaxy 7 with the watch.
I'm a little over halfway through training for a half marathon. Wish I would've gotten this sooner! Easy to set up, works perfectly, and provides all of the accurate information that I need and more!
My seven year old outgrew her Garmin Junior so I upgraded her to this model because she wanted a specific color band that was available. The vivofit 2 "small" fits her very well. She isn't quite strong enough to press the button through the thick band material though so she only uses the watch function. It took us three days and multiple calls to Garmin customer service before the watch would sync correctly. If I were to do it all over again, I would buy her a Fitbit.
