    Nice to check on their quality of sleep

    I have my twin girls using these so I can check their activity and their quality of sleep. I was given one for my birthday myself and I like being able to see my heart rate. Unfortunately that is the only reason why I didn’t give this 5 stars because it doesn’t allow you to see their heart rate. Everything else is pretty basic but I like to set set timers on their watches if they have timeout, waiting for something, or other things. My girls are almost 4 and even though it’s for older ages I figured they’d grow into them and they are able to still wear them since they adjust to smaller wrists.

    Birthday gift for 9 year old daughter. She loves it. Only downside is the band. Did not last very long before tearing. Daughter indicates screen freezes. Band material not the best. Fit bit itself great for child.

    I love that it tracks your sleep. I also love that it has a stopwatch, alarm and timer. I like that you can change the screen and I hope they make new ones for it.

    I think it's great for kids if you're trying to get them more active. My kids really enjoy their new Fitbit Ace watch. Unfortunately, only a month in (Xmas gift) and the band has already ripped/broken off. :( Not sure what BBY warranty policy is but will try to get it exchanged. Wish me luck since it's past its return date.

    10 Year Old Love It

    This is a great gadget for allowing a younger child to feel included with the step challenges. It has the silent alarm which makes morning wake up easier. The associated parent account within Fitbit allows you to set family challenges and monitor child progress. The app shows weekly progress and notifies child of milestones hit. Allows for custom avatar. Parental controls keeps your child off of the open Fitbit community while still allowing them access to utilize the app to set goals. If parents and siblings already have a Fitbit, the controls allow you to add family members to the child’s app so that they can participate in family centered activity and step goals. This product is most useful for parents who already use pedometers and are wishing to include younger children. Without parent enthusiasm and involvement, this item will likely collect dust or just become a “fancy watch.”

    This Fitbit seems to be of good quality. I have read many mixed reviews online. It did need to do a firmware update immediately before it could be used, which might account for some other reviewers saying theirs seemed to be defective upon first attempt to use. It's a cute watch, and my 8-year-old is happy with it. I am happy that it motivates her to be less of a couch potato. I've connected her to my Fitbit app on my phone so that I can see her stats. It would be nice if it could link to more than one device, but since it can't, we are just viewing data through my phone app.

    Purchased this during the 2020 pandemic to help me keep track of my younger daughters activity to make sure she was getting decent amounts of exercise while virtual learning. She is 8 and she loves making sure she gets her steps in every day! The app is easy to use and makes it very easy for me to see her activity for the day. I really like the sleep tracker too. Great purchase and we use it everyday. During the summer she swam in our pool almost every day and the watch did a great job tracking her swimming activity and was water resistant as advertised. This version does not have a heart rate monitor. I did purchase the other watch with the heart rate monitor for my 12 year old daughter and it is great too!

    Bought it for my 8 year old. She likes it. It's pretty basic and simple for a child. I think the step counter is off though. It could be just the one we have, but every morning it shows anywhere from 20 to 70 steps and she hasn't even gotten out of bed yet. The only other thing is that the app is essential which is inconvenient since she doesn't own a phone and her Kindle doesn't seem to be compatible with the app. So I know we don't get full use of it. Other than that, she likes having the watch and tracking her steps every day. She's happy. I'm happy.

    Could use smaller wristbands

    I bought this for my son so he could get into tracking his fitness—and to wear a watch. I like how that there are no obvious buttons for him to fool with. My only complaint is that they need different sized bands for smaller wrists. I have the notch on the next to the last one, and it still wriggles quite a bit. They have different size bands for adults, why not kids? My kid’s a string bean, so he takes a long time to fill out things. Other than that, the watch works great!

    Mini Fitbit

    Purchased for my 8yo. Love the colors. I have owned several Fitbits over the years. I also purchased 2 Senses. The Ace was the hardest. During setup, the setup froze. Not sure if it was my daughter's impatience or what. There is no hard reboot (the original fitbit had a hole...) so I had to let the battery die. Recommendation... 1) if for a child... charge it FIRST, fully before attempting setup 2) then run the setup. Had I known this, I would have opened thed box and done this prior to gifting it to her at Christmas. It was 2 days before she could wear it. This is why I couldn't give 5 stars. My daughter loves it. She loves that she has a fitbit just like her mom and dad.

    Great that it's waterproof

    This is a great little device in that it's a watch that also gets kids excited about their physical activity during the day. Importantly, it's waterproof, so you don't have to worry about anyone remembering to take it off before showering or jumping in a pool. Would love to see something with a longer-lasting charge, but there's not much on the market doing that in a waterproof kid sized device, so this is as good as any. It is probably overly sensitive in what it counts as steps - my kid can pick up a few thousand steps on a bumpy bike ride, but I figure perfect accuracy isn't the goal on a device for kids. They have a lot of fun competing with us for daily steps.

    Fun accessory for my 7-year old

    My wife and I recently got FitBits for ourselves so naturally, monkey see monkey do, our daughter asked for one as well. We got her the watermelon color FitBit and she loves it. Not only is it fun for her to see her steps and compete with her older cousins, it’s spurred health-related conversations in our household about exercise, eating, and sleeping. Having a cheaper alternative for kids compared to adult FitBits definitely made this possible, even if the FitBit for kids don’t track nearly as much stuff as they ones for adults but that’s okay. The kid loves wearing it and it’s helping her develop healthy habits so I consider that a huge win.

    This was a great buy for my daughter. She is very competitive and wanted one because me and my wife have a Fitbit and we do the challenges and all. She wanted to join and so we got her this more earlier than we had said we wod for her birthday. It's great, but the band broke broke off in less than a month. The bands are available everywhere so I just ordered new compatible new bands for less than $10 and waiting for it arrive currently. I would have hoped the product was a bit cheaper though because I'm sure I will be going through a couple since it is for kids, whether damaged or lost.

    I bought my son the ace 2 activity tracker and he actually likes it. He uses it to tell time and I use it see to see if he is moving around during his recess and lunch time. I also like keeping track of his sleep habits. It very easy and simple to use. I have an alta hr and I love the things I can track, the ace 2 has less things to track but it's perfect for kids. My only complaint is that I wish I was able to set more than 8 alarms per day. About 20 alarms per day would be perfect, my son needs constant reminders throughout the day. Honestly I recommend it.

    My daughter says that it is AWESOME!!! I originally bought it for her, so she wouldn't be left out, since our family won a couple during a project. I never realized how helpful it would be for me to see her sleeping patterns and to realize she wasn't sleeping as I thought she was. This insight has been eye opening and now I can maybe get the answers I have been wondering about. I can now take this information to her physician and we can get tools and goals for her to help improve this situation. She loves the different clock faces and really likes watching the flower grow in the pot as she earns her steps.

    For a child tracker i love it for my daughter. Your able to track steps sleep and swim proof. She uses it for PE at school and help give insentive to to move around more. Also i love that i can link it to my app and monitor her sleep activity and lasts for like 3 to 5 days really happy with the purchase. Definately worth the 50 bucks. It says 6 and up but I think 8 and up would be a more appropriate age. My daughter 12 and I wouldnt give it to my 6 year old she would lose it.

    Purchased this as a gift for my nephew and we both love it! He has no complaints regarding comfort or any type of allergic reactions from the band (as many stated in their reviews). On the contrary, he loves the ease of use and how it keeps him accountable when it comes to reaching steps. Easy for parents to track progress and to take part in challenges as a family. Would def recommend and will be purchasing another one soon for my little guy to be encouraged to step up his physical activity!

    After a few years of use, The kids use it occasionally. The screen sometimes goes sluggish, and the straps eventually broke. Had to buy aftermarket ones which extended the use with the kiddos. Still a good starter smart watch

    My child always wanted to borrow my smart watch to track his activity, so I decided to get him his own fitness tracker with built in watch. It was a hit! Not only is it encouraging him to be more physically active, but the watch function is helping him to tell time better. The alarm even helps him get out of bed faster in the morning! So far the construction seems to be able to keep up with the bumps and bangs that come with an active kid.
