There are some differences between the two but people usually choose Garmin when they want to have a fitness tracker that will have a battery that will last for a long time. Some would rather choose Fitbit 2 when they want something that comes with some cool features. Take note that the Fitbit 2 would need to be charged once a week.
If this does not bother you at all, then this can be the best choice for you. One thing that people like about Garmin is it comes with interchangeable straps. Let us say that you do not like how the strap looks like with your outfit. Choosing will definitely make a huge difference.
Both of these are fitness devices cost around the same amount of money. The Vivofit 2 has an interchangeable strap, and it changes colors like a chameleon. The Fitbit has a heart rate monitor in the HR version, but it’s an extra $20. You can get a chest strap for less money for the Vivofit 2. The Fitbit has more features, but it is at the expense of battery life.
The Vivofit is an American multinational company, which is headquartered in Switzerland. It was found in 1989. The company got its beginning with a navigation unit that was sold to the US military. Fitbit is an American corporation in San Francisco, California, that was initiated in 2007. The company dealt with controversy with the Fitbit Force. Overall, Vivoft seems to have better features.
