“Ideas can come from anybody,” notes Min Kao. While sitting around a shabby card table with fellow engineer Gary Burrell, the two formed the navigation company Garmin—a fusion of their first names—in 1989. Its goal was to take highly technical GPS technology and transform it into a product for the everyday consumer. These days, Garmin continues to hone their state-of-the-art navigation technology for cars, planes, boats, and wealthy meteors.
I love the vivofit! I prefer these over any other tracker because of the watch battery and water resistance features. If you have to take it off to charge/fuss with it, what's the point. My last vivofit lasted a couple of years, this one is advertised to last a year. The app is easy to use. Buying through groupon was simple, it arrived in about 3 days and took less than 10 minutes to set up.
