It’s a proven fact that people do better when they get enough exercise–and this is also true for kids! To help parents with this challenge, now there is an activity tracker geared just for kids. Like your own activity tracker, Fitbit Ace for kids helps motivate them to be active and get enough sleep. Why is this important? Let’s talk kids and exercise!
Exercise does so much good for our bodies. The benefits include better sleep, improved brain function, and better mental health. For kids, exercise can be as simple as playing outdoors and being physically active. Fit kids are also better equipped to handle the challenges that come with life. This includes physical challenges, mental and emotional stress, and life in general.
How can the Fitbit Ace help you encourage your kids to be more healthy and active? Well, probably in all the same ways that your own activity tracker helps motivate you:
- keeps track of your kid’s steps, active minutes, and sleep
- simply tap the display to show progress throughout the day
- Fitbit Ace rewards kids with celebratory alerts
- kids earn badges for varying levels of activity and miles walked
- your kids can challenge their friends to walk more steps or get more activity each day
The Fitbit Ace is worn conveniently around the wrist and comes in either Power Purple or Electric Blue. The battery lasts approximately 5 days between charges, depending on use. In your own Fitbit app, you can now create a family account and add your kids’ Fitbit Ace trackers. Everything syncs up wirelessly to either iOS or Android!
From the Fitbit app, you can also set your child’s Ace to send friendly reminders to keep moving throughout the day and challenge them to stay active. Fitbit Ace is designed for kids age 8 and up.
You’ll find the Ace at Amazon, available for purchase starting July 30, 2018. Be one of the first to get it!
