Fitbit announced on Monday that its first wearable for kids, the Fitbit Ace will now be available worldwide after its US launch earlier this year.
Designed for children age 8 and older, the Fitbit Ace has been created to help get kids moving as childhood obesity rates rise and parents become more concerned about their children's health.
Fitbit Ace will send kids reminders to move every hour and reward them for their activity to help build healthy habits. Children can sign up for daily or weekend challenges to collect badge rewards, and both kids and parents can see their stats, badges earned, and progress toward their goals in the Fitbit app. The wearable will also record sleep to ensure kids are getting enough, but to give kids a more positive experience the wearable will not highlight calorie intake, weight, or body fat and BMI.
The Max Calories You Can Burn In A Workout
The treadmill is lying to you. Who hasn't mindlessly used the elliptical at the gym while watching Real Housewives of New York - and then done a happy dance when you see that quick half hour burned 500 calories? Welp, sorry to be the bearer of buzzkill news, but...the cardio machine was kinda-sorta definitely overestimating there.Even if you pay for a fancy fitness studio workout - or a fancy fitness tracker, for that matter - you can't necessarily trust what the machines (or the instructors) say your calorie burn comes out to.
To help get the whole family involved, and enable parents to keep track of how kids are doing, there is also a family account option. Here parents can approve who their children connect with, view activity and progress, and sign up the whole family for challenges together to help keep one another motivated.
The FitBit Ace also has an adjustable wristband to fit all children, even through their growth spurts, and comes in two bright colors of power purple and electric blue.
Fitbit Ace is available now at retail partner stores worldwide, and is also available for sale atfor $99.95 (USD).
Are we really out of sex in 20 years?
In about 20 years we will not have sex anymore. At least that's the thesis of a professor at an American university. Credible or total humbug? At least provocative!
The majority of people in developed countries will stop having sex to father children. This is the thesis of Henry Greely, a professor at the University of Stanford.
Getting children without sex will become the norm, according to Greely. And not only with couples who naturally can not have children. In less than 20 years, the scientist says, most children will be conceived in the lab. (Currently, scientists at the University of Texas recommend having sex every day because it's good for our health.)Will we stop having sex? .)
The fact that our sex life will change in this way, the scientist describes in his book "The End of Sex and the Future of Human Reproduction". He told The Times magazine, "In 20 to 40 years, when a couple wants a baby, the man will provide the sperm and the woman will give a punched-out piece of her skin." From the skin of the woman one could produce stem cells, which can be used to form egg cells. The ova, in turn, can then be fertilized with the sperm of the man - so the theory.What do the new theses entail?
According to Greely, the embryos can also be screened for illnesses and the parents can decide which fertilized egg they will eventually plant in their mother's body and which will not. Furthermore, the Stanford professor writes that the embryos also carry information about hair and eye color with them. Information on behaviors could also be read from the laboratory-produced Emryo.
We anyway, would rather continue to have sex! Because it is fun because it means passion, it brings us closer to our partner, because it is good for our figure (Related Articles ), because he keeps healthy ...
