This waterproof wearable comes in patterns we wish they made in adult size. The battery rarely has to be charged, as it has a lifespan of 1 year!

Instead of just monitoring movement, this device turns fitness into a game. Designed for kids 5-12, Geopalz rewards milestones with prizes and online game time. Best of all, its software is compatible with Nike and FitBit devices, so the whole family can track together!

This VTech watch automatically tracks your kids’ physical activity and has games that encourage even more movement. Why will kids want to wear it? They can snap selfies with its built-in camera.
Fitbit families can get their kids into the action with the Fitbit Zip. This small, clip-on model is perfect for kids, tweens and teens. Share progress and partake in some family-friendly competition.
