Hi I’m Kate. A mom of a daughter who has energy to burn!
As she got older she became interested in sport, challenges and especially rewards (every child seems to love stickers!). I thought it would be fun to buy her a watch that allowed her to track activities in the same way I use my watch for logging my runs. There was a lot of information online about adult fitness trackers but nothing really for kids. I knew there were models out there but couldn’t find anything in depth to help me pick out the right ones.
I thought it was odd as lots of kids love tracking their achievements whether they are budding athletes or just on the first steps of getting a bit more active. So without finding much online I decided to create my own blog and look at the watches that are available for kids and how they might be useful. A lot of kids love technology and fitness trackers are a great cross over between tech and an active lifestyle. A little more active than playing computer games but still firmly in the cool tech category kids love. Some of the trackers have fantastic features that can set different challenges for children no matter what their interests.
Hopefully the site gives some useful information on trackers and technology that can help your kids participate and enjoy healthy, outdoor fun.
I hope you enjoy the site and if you have any questions please feel free to get in touch and I will do my best to help. If you’re a company and have a kids smart watch or fitness tracker you would like reviewing, please send an email across too.
