Fitbit has introduced the third generation of its activity and sleep tracker for kids. The Fitbit Ace 3 has a longer battery life, new interactive watch faces and a kid-friendly design. The fitness tracker should encourage children from the age of six to keep moving during the corona crisis.
In the news: Fitbit has just introduced the Fitbit Ace 3, an activity and sleep tracker designed specifically for kids six and older.
- “For families who need to navigate homeschooling and social distancing guidelines, keeping kids moving, motivated and happy is a constant challenge,” said James Park, Fitbit CEO. “Ace 3 offers a lot of experiences that bring more fun to the daily life of children. It also helps them and their parents reconnect with the joys of exercise and important, fundamentally healthy habits that will last a lifetime. ”
The details: The Fitbit Ace 3 builds on the previous generations of Ace trackers, but adds some novelties.
- The battery life has been extended to no less than eight days.
- Thanks to the waterproof design, children never have to take off their tracker again, even when they go swimming for example.
- The screen of the Fitbit Ace 3 is also 20 percent brighter than that of its predecessor.
- Daily goals and reminders should motivate children to get enough exercise. These targets can of course be adjusted to the school time.
- Within the Fitbit app, users can compete with (parent-approved) friends, relatives and other members of the family. You can earn virtual badges via Family Face Off.
- Reaching goals also causes the animated watch face to change and grow.
- The tracker gives parents the opportunity to monitor not only how much their children are moving, but also how much they sleep.
- The Fitbit Ace 3 is available for pre-order in two colors: black / sporty red or cosmos blue / astro green. The device costs 79.95 euros and will be released on May 15.
