This past January, my husband and I had the chance to travel to Las Vegas for CES 2014. It was an amazing experience and like all attendees, were excited to check out all of the new technology.
One of the booths we stopped at, was the ibitz booth where we learned about the ibitz Fitness tracker for kids by GeoPals. When Best Buy offered to send a set over, I was excited to give these a try.
Fitness Tracker for Kids
The idea behind ibitz is to get your kids MOVING. Your kids can place the tracker on your shoe or it slides perfectly on to a pocket.
Your kids proceed as normal and then can see how much they moved with the ibitz kids app.
The iBitz fitness tracker for kids comes with:
- ibitz activity tracker
- clip for hip and shoe
- additional battery
- registration key
To get started, you simply sync your device using the ibitz PowerKey app and your registration key (that will be on the back side of your clip). The PowerKey app is available for iOS. Here is how to setup the pedometer:
Parents, you can setup goals for your kids and even incentivize them by rewarding them with things such as screen time, or products. It’s a super fun way to keep your kids engaged with how much they are moving.
I want to put it on my toddler, just to see how much he goes. I know it will put my numbers to shame. Speaking of my numbers… if you are an adult, ibitz makes a fitness tracker just for you.
ibitz Unity Fitness Tracker
In addition to the kids fitness tracker, ibitz also offers the ibitz Unity family fitness monitor.
The ibitz Unity features include:
- tracking steps, distance, calories
- wear on hip or shoe
- stores 30 days
- can sync with numerous devices
The Unity tracker sets up the same way as the kids fitness tracker does. The ibitz Unity app offers a slick dashboard to show you your activity.
Family Fitness Tracking
Get everyone moving this summer. We are looking forward to using these fitness monitors on our upcoming vacations. We will be hiking, going to the beach and lots of sight-seeing which means miles and miles of walking. It will be neat to tally up totals at the end our trip!
These fitness trackers are both available at Best Buy and are reasonably priced:
