Successor to the
Fitbit Ace 2, the Ace 3 is specifically designed for kids, making it the obvious choice to top this list. It has a simple, tough design and straps specifically for small wrists, with a slim display to show the time and basic readouts.
It’s showerproof and the battery should last for up to eight days, meaning your kids can wear it all through the school week to keep an eye on their exercise.
There’s no heart rate monitor on the Ace 3, so if (or your child) want such functionality, you should consider the more able Inspire 2 tracker.
Fitbit recommends the Ace 3 for children over the age of six, with it tracking Steps, Active Minutes and basic Sleep, while also offering up Reminders to Move and basic notifications, like Caller ID. Bedtime Reminders, alarms, a timer and a stopwatch are all included extras too.
On the app side, Fitbit has created two Views exclusive to the Ace range: one for parents and another for the child. Just like adults, kids can win badges and trophies as they hit their activity goals. These family views are just for Ace.
Fitbit also ensures all the data collected is private and not shared with its servers, keeping info about your kids safely with you and you only.
A Special Edition Ace 3 (at the same price) is based on the popular Minions movies.
