Fitbit has announced today its third generation activity and sleep tracker fitness band for kids with the Fitbit Ace 3.

The Fitbit Ace 3 offers an eight-day battery life that it claims will last up to a week long between charges, along with new interactive clock faces and new accessories to help motivate kids and show off their own individual style.

The Fitbit Ace 3 helps kids develop healthy habits by encouraging them to get active and get the sleep their growing bodies need, along with helping motivate kids to get moving to reach the 60 daily active minutes with reminders to take at least 250 steps per hour, with an option to customise during school time.

Furthermore, kids can easily set personalised goals and track all day activity on their device by reviewing their stats on the bright, easy-to-use touchscreen, setting timers and racing against the stopwatch.

The Fitbit Ace 3 connects to the FitBit app, to which kids can connect with parent-approved friends and family, engage in friendly competition via Family Face Off challenges, and celebrate milestones with virtual badges and trophies.

James Park, VP, GM & Co-founder of Fitbit has stated that:

“As families continue to navigate remote learning and social distancing guidelines, it is a constant challenge to keep kids moving, motivated and happy, while trying to balance the time they spend on screens for school as well as free time,” and that “We’ve infused Ace 3 with experiences that bring more fun into kids’ day-to-day lives to help them, and their parents, reconnect with the joy of movement, helping instill important, foundational healthy habits that can last a lifetime.”

There are 20 clock faces to choose from with the Fitbit Ace 3, of which most are animated and the Ace 3 comes with two accessory bands based on the popular kids (and somewhat adults) movies – The Minions and Despicable Me – in Despicable Blue and Mischief Black, and more Minions features and offerings coming soon.
