Is it worth buying?

If you are not too active and commit yourself for a change, you should definitely consider buying one of those: vivofit 2 (from 1st May – 3,990 THB) , vivosmart (5,990 THB) and the latest GPS Smartwatch Vivoactive (9,700 THB) . I had started with the very first vivofit, and after months of using, I have to admit that it did help me to get into the right habit of exercising and being more physically active on daily bases. Some of us may think, that these devices are just gadgets. I thought similarly, but I did change my mind after using them to improve my life and the most valuable gem – health!
