Good news for those still trying to keep their New Year’s Resolution as Garmin have recently announced the Garmin vivofit. The fitness band is designed to monitor your daily habits and then start to guide you to a healthier lifestyle with personalised goals.

The always-on curved display measure how many steps you’ve taken, the distance you have travelled, calories burned and how close you are to achieving your daily goals.

On top of this it is also a water-resistant watch and can let you know if you’re getting quality sleep. ¬†Coupled with the year-long battery life, the Garmin vivofit may well be one of the more useful wearable-tech items released this year.
