Finally, kids too can have their very own fitness tracker thanks to Fitbit. Introducing Fitbit Ace which is custom-made for kids aged 8 and above. Available globally, Fitbit Ace will come in two different colours that kids will adore Electric Blue (for boys) and Power Purple (for girls) and each of this fitness band will retail at US$99.95. It is not cheap but I am sure it will be useful and more importantly durable for kids and their usual knocks and bumps.
Fitbit Ace for your kids.
Fitbit Ace is almost like the adult version of Fitbit except children will never discover how much calories they have burnt or body fat percentages. These delicate information is only reserved for their old men (parents, guardians etc.) who will manage their children's Fitbit Ace via the new family accounts. Apart from that, Fitbit Ace is actually a very capable fitness tracker which aims to get kids more active and fit in the wake of rising child obesity due to their very sedentary lifestyles. So the following are the 12 main features of Fitbit Ace for kids.
