Check out the promotional video below to learn more.
The new Fitbit Ace kids fitness tracker is available in two colours and is capable of running for five days on a single charge. Integrated controls allow parents to manage who their children connect with and what information they see in the Fitbit app that will motivate them most. The Fitbit Ace is capable of tracking both activity and sleep and includes move reminders to reduce injury time with personalised reminders to move each hour.
“Fitbit Ace opens up a direct line of communication across the family to help parents and their children understand how physical activity impacts overall wellbeing and health,” said Dr. Ryan Rhodes, exercise psychologist, Director of the Behavioural Medicine Lab (BMED) at the University of Victoria, and member of the Fitbit Advisory Panel. “When parents have insight into their kids’ activity, they are better positioned to then promote less screen-time and more physical activity in a fun and motivating way.”
– Motivates and rewards them for moving: Encourages kids to build healthy habits with daily or weekend challenges and collectible badge rewards. Kids (and parents) can see their stats, badges earned, progress toward their goals, and more in the Fitbit app.vii
– Family account: Brings families together and keeps everyone engaged with added motivation and accountability; parents can view their kid’s activity, and manage what stats they see in the app.
