Fitbit has released a new watch for children under the name of Fitbit Ace in Australia, with special features for family accounts that bring children directly into the motivational Fitbit game. Until now, children under the age of 13 have not been allowed to have Fitbit personal accounts for - as far as we can verify - reasons for federal privacy.

Price and Availability

Fitbit wants to tackle the increase in obesity in children, caused as much by inactivity as by poor nutrition.  Fitbit's goal is for children to accumulate at least 60 minutes of physical activity per day, which is in line with the World Health Organization recommendations for children ages 7 to 17. Fitbit Ace's price in Australia is 130 AUD. Here below we have mentioned a few stores from where you can buy any of the Fitbit smartwatches.

Description

The Fitbit Ace is just an Alta with some health measures removed (for reasonable reasons) and a smaller, safer strap for smaller wrists. The Ace is available in two almost genderless colours: Electric Blue and Power Purple.

It is a slim design that can display the clock face and statistics shown on the wrist. You can choose the orientation on the screen in vertical or horizontal mode.

We found that the pop clasp of the Alta and Flex is not as robust as a watch-shaped buckle, so we are glad that the Ace Fitbit went with the Alta HR adjustable buckle strap rather than less secure.

The belt is definitely "small," so if your child has large wrists, you may need a small or large adult strap from compatible accessories with the Fitbit Alta or Alta HR.

The Fitbit Ace measures steps, distance, and current time, as well as sleep monitoring. Fitbit has removed the calorie counting you get with adult trackers.

While childhood obesity is an obvious health risk, we think Fitbit is right to remove such measures from Ace, as parents shouldn't want their kids to be overweight.

This does not mean that parents should not ensure that their children are getting proper dietary advice - just that children could allow calorie and weight data to cause crippling anxiety.

Fitbit believes active children should keep a healthy weight but is not interested in losing weight as a primary goal that children are trying to achieve - it will be a byproduct.

There are reminders to move, which encourage the user to move if he hasn't moved from his chair for 250 steps in each hour. Fitbit Ace automatically recognizes and records your movements so you can track workouts without having to press a button. Fitbit wants to make fitness fun, with the usual Fitbit Challenges and Adventures, in which family members can compete with each other.
