Over the last few months or so I have seen many friends talk about and post about their health monitors. From the bracelets to the watches, it seems everyone has one. The interesting thing that I have noticed is that none of them are specific designed for children. Sure you can buy the other ones and give them to your children but they lack the fun with the function. iBitz from Best Buy combines the 2 and make fitness fun for the whole family.
iBitz – Adult and Kids PowerKey Wireless Activity Monitor
The new iBitz wireles fitness monitor for kids, also known as the PowerKey, works with the iBitz Unity or parent monitor. This allows the parent to control everything on the childs PowerKey. The iBitz also syncs with the iBitz Kids App that adds the FUN element to fitness.
Features of the ibitz Kids App
- Parents can set goals, and add customized rewards (screen time, a trip to the zoo with Mom, zoom to a new planet).
- Custom Amazon prizes (parent funded), where parents and kids select a prize and then establish the necessary steps to earn that item.
- Kids can also earn coins and exclusive content from Disney’s Club Penguin.
- free 14 day trial membership to Disney’s Club Penguin is available through the compatible website.
- Weekly progress reports are emailed to the parents.
- The ibitz app is COPPA* compliant and requires parent authentication. Children’s Online Privacy and Protection Act was enacted by the FCC to protect our children in this digital world. Parents will be asked to validate the users account with a password as well as entering a valid credit card. The card is validated with $1.00 but will not be processed.
Features of the Adult iBitz Unity App
- tracks steps
- weight (added manually)
- overall physical activity, even BMI
- allows you to incorporate family and friends.
- Now you are able to form groups and post your progress on social media.
- has the ability to sync all of the ibitz devices in your home, so you have the ability to view all of the activity of each family member minute by minute.
The iBitz for kids and adults comes in a variety of colors and allows to easily figure out which one belongs to which person. Some of the other great features are that it is waterproof, stores 30 days worth of data, and can be worn on the hip or shoe. The clip is very sturdy and the iBitz will not come off accidentally. If you are looking for wireless fitness monitors for everyone in your family look no further then iBitz. You can find the iBitz at your local Best Buy and the price is pretty reasonable. The kids units are $24 and the adults are $36. They run on iOS operating system currently but they are hoping to release an Android App very soon.
How do you have fun and stay fit as a family?
