    The REI Member Dividend

    The REI dividend is a unique benefit of membership in the REI co-op. It's comprised of your member refund—typically 10% back on eligible purchases—and/or your REI Visa® card rebates.

    Each March, active REI members and REI Visa cardholders who earned a rebate receive a refund in the form of an annual dividend notice.

    Only active members receive annual dividend notices. To maintain your active status as an REI member, you need to make net merchandise or shipping purchases of at least $10 per year, unless you joined that year. Member numbers are issued in one name and only that person receives the member refund. Your number can be used by others in your family, but it cannot be transferred to someone else.

    Garmin vivofit Wireless Activity Tracker is rated 2.6471 out of 5 by 17.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Terrific movement tracker, but not more This is great for making sure you keep moving. It tracks steps and other movement, and can create activities in Garmin Connect when you pair with a heart rate monitor. This is not a substitute for a Garmin GPS watch; in fact, it is to be used in conjunction with it to measure non running movement and activities if you so choose. Great for making sure you get up from your desk regularly, and helping quantify some cross training activity at the gym to see how much effort you are really putting in when you use the heart rate monitor. Not really a great running watch - the pedometer is nowhere nearly as accurate as GPS or a Forerunner with a footpod or built in pedometer like the 220/620. If you pair the Vivofit with a HR monitor while using a Forerunner, you will get duplicate activities. My solution is to only pair with the Forerunner and use the Vivofit just to track steps (it doesn't doublecount steps if you use two devices simultaneously, paired or no).

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Okay, but not what I was hoping for As a Garmin user (Forerunner 305, followed by the Forerunner 310XT), I was looking forward to trying out the Vivofit. Features I like: *Size (much smaller than the GPS watches) *Sleep function *Red bar to remind me to get moving when I've been inactive for too long Features I'm not impressed with: *HRM is inaccurate, often registering/reporting 243 bpm during an intense kickboxing session. *Inconsistency/trouble with Garmin Express/Connect Overall, it's okay, but it's not what I was hoping for.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome fitness band I bought this fitness band after doing some research online and absolutely love it! The first one I bought didn't work properly, would only show steps and wouldn't display the other features.. Brought it right back to REI the next day and they exchanged it no questions asked( love REI). The second one I got works with no issues. It shows the time , shows the date, counts your steps and figures out your daily goals for you. I have a love hate relationship with the red line that tells you to move. I synced it to my phone and did not bother with the computer... Setting it up was easy.. I love the colors especially the teal one ( color I bought ). This garmin vivofit is a great fitness band that is fun and easy to use. I would absolutely recommend this product!!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great daily tracker I just received the Garmin Vivofit and my initial concern was realized. It is a bit bigger than the other fitness bands. With that said, it has currently met all of my expectations. Out of the box, there is a lack of instructions. Just that you need to first go to Garmin's website. The software was quick and easy to install and pairing the device with the included ANT+ device was seamless. It asked for my basic info (weight, height, age, sex) and then it started tracking my movements. I went out for a quick run and found that the distance tracking is fairly accurate when compared to my other Garmin GPS (Edge 705). The new Garmin website/dashboard is a breath of fresh air. It was a bit cumbersome at first as it is a fairly big change, but the data is better represented and it goes well with all of my previous data that I had already sync'd up. The band is very comfortable to wear and extremely light. As mentioned above, the size of it is was a bit alarming, but that is something I'll get used to. Needless to say, I will not be wearing it to any black-tie events.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very happy with Garmin Vivofit I have had my Vivofit for a few days now - I replaced a Fitbit Force (which I loved but got the Fitbit rash/burn). The fit/confort of the Vivofit is better than the Fitbit (Garmin tapered the band). The always on display is a great improvement. Also, the Vivofit has this red bar showing your inactivity and its a real motivator - yesterday I hit 10k steps because I was trying to make the red bar go away during the day. I really love it - only thing I wish it had was backlighting display (only is an issue when trying to use the sleep settings when the lights are out). The fact that this worked with my Garmin Heart Rate monitor was a huge plus for me. Now I have one extra data point to track - and this is kind of a critical one. I wish they would offer more band accessory colors and the software will probably get some updates. Overall I currently think this is the best fitness band available.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Product w/ a simple interface! I've had a Garmin 910xt for the last couple years and loved it. When I heard they were coming out with an activity tracker in an already saturated market I was slightly skeptical they could infiltrate it. I was delightfully proven wrong when I bought my Vivofit a week ago. It does everything it's supposed to do and the ease of use is great! No hard thinking involved, just strap it on and wear it. The Bluetooth sync with my iPhone is fast & quick. I bought it mainly to track my sleep patterns over a race week, so far it's done extraordinarily well. A great addition to my 910xt.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Very inaccurate!! Had high hopes = FAIL Bought after voluntary recall on Fitbit Force. Had high hopes, but didn't work out of box. Required MAC software update..still did not "find" device. Garmin Support was not helpful when emailed. Over-estimates steps and mileage. Poor blue tooth connectivity. Have to manually "sync" with iPhone. NO backlight. If Fitbit didn't recall the Force, I would have kept it, hands down!!

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Only lasted four days... I did research on the current lineup of fitness bands available and decided I liked the fact the Vivofit had a display that would haunt me with my lack of activity. I sit at a desk all day and having this reminder to get up and walk a few laps around the building or just get up and move around was worth the extra cost to me. I started wearing the Vivofit almost as soon as I purchased it. It worked well the first day, though I did have a difficult time getting it synced with the software available for download. I also noticed that it didn't clasp well. It didn't seem to "catch" without more effort than I thought should be necessary. But it was performing as expected and just having this device prompted me towards more activity and that was my goal. After the first day, however, I realized that the red "inactivity bar" was unpredictable. It would show up after an hour of inactivity but then would not go away after the recommended few minutes of activity. Then it would go away after sitting for 15 minutes or so. And at times it would work but then not reset even after walking for an hour or more. By day three, it was always there. In fact, I hiked for almost three hours and it never reset. I contacted customer service about this issue (via email) and got "it could take 200 steps to reset" even though I told them I had been up, moving and walking for over an hour (definitely covering more than 200 steps). As annoying as this was, I could have lived with this. What became the bigger problem was the clasp on the band. I realized that every time I put it on that I would have to make doubly sure it was fastened because it didn't seem it would hold. And it didn't hold. It fell off frequently. Eventually, unfortunately, it fell off while not realizing it and after several days of searching I've resigned myself to the fact my $130 Vivofit is gone. If you want a fitness band with a display and don't mind spending $130 on something that you might not have more than a few days, then the Vivofit could be for you. If, however, you are like me and work hard for your money, I would suggest looking for something else.
