Get Your Kids Moving: Top 3 Activity Trackers

Do your kids stare at a screen the whole day? Get them moving with a fun fitness tracker.



With tablets, smartphones and video games becoming a major part of children’s lives, outdoor playtime has become limited at best. One way to get them up and moving is by combining gadgets and playtime – here are our pick of the three best activity trackers for kids:

1. Fitbit Ace

The Ace tracks children’s activity and lets them design their own goals on an app, enabling them to challenge their friends. It’s available in purple and blue, has a battery life of up to five days and is showerproof to boot.

3. Garmin Vivofit Jr 2

Saving the best for last – the Garmin Vivofit Jr  has a leg up on competitors with its concept of unlocking digital badges and content for every 60 minutes of activity. Garmin upped the cool factor by leveraging a partnership with Disney, allowing content from Marvel, Star Wars, Minnie Mouse and more to be unlocked.
