Slap-Bracelet Fitness Tracker Encourages Kids To Exercise

Wearable tech from KidFit helps kids learn about the value of physical activity.

Childhood obesity in America is at an all-time high, and it’s a problem that is creeping into other countries as well. One of the difficulties in controlling the problem is the fact that many kids don’t understand or see the point in staying fit.

Wearable devices have greatly assisted in making adults more driven to reach their fitness goals, but they can be pricey and difficult to use, so these fitness gadgets haven’t seemed like they would aid in getting children to be more active- until now.


KidFit is the first wearable of its kind. It’s a one-size-fits-all slap-bracelet designed to look like a watch, that functions as a fitness tracker. Parents can set a customized daily activity target that is scored out of 100 points, which children can relate to taking a test at school. The device will sync each activity the child performs, motivating them to keep on. And to help encourage the child to meet their personal goals, parents can tie in real-world rewards.

In addition, the KidFit wristband allows parents to set sleeping goals. This will help ensure that children get enough sleep during the night to wake up feeling refreshed and energized to take on that day’s tasks.


Produced by X-Doria, the KidFit band is not only easy to use but easy to understand. Children will quickly come to realize that if they score enough points they will get rewards. It comes in four fun colors for kids to choose from and is even water resistant. The slap-bracelet is recommended for children aged 5-13, and the accompanying app is compatible with both iOS and Android systems. Currently available for $39.99, the bracelet will jump to a still affordable $50 once pre-orders are shipped, on August 15th.
