Activity trackers are very popular right now. Every tech company under the sun seems to be announcing a new tracker every week or so. These trackers are almost exclusively designed for adults, but younger kids can definitely benefit from motivation to get more active too. The latest kid centric activity tracker to come on the market is the KidFit Wireless Activity & Sleep tracker from X-doria. The KitFit has been designed for children ages 5-13 and features a one size fits all slap style bracelet strap and splash proof casing. The tracker doesn’t focus on tracking the number of steps walked or calories burned in a day, but emphasizes a 100 point daily activity goal. It’s not clear if the LCD display on the band provides daily fitness info or just a status indicator, or if parents have to sync their kids daily progress through the free iOS or Android app using Bluetooth 4.0 technology. The app helps kids earn badges as they get close to their goals and helps parents associate those goals with actual rewards. The KitFit tracker is available in four colors and is priced at $49.99. For more info visit X-doria.

    Here’s an interesting bit of information. Seems kids have more privacy rights than adults:
    Do you collect or store my child’s health information?
    No, X-Doria does not collect any information from the KidFit app. KidFit is 100% COPPA (Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act) compliant. All information generated by KidFit stays on your device.

    Which aspect of this tracker is tailored for kids besides a 100-point system? Would be awesome if, upon completion of certain fitness goals, kids get rewarded with some type of games they can play on the device!

      @Truffol big chunky colorful design, waterproof and the app that tracks the stats looks like it is more tailored to kids by earning badges.
