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 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 at Fitbit.com for $99.95 (USD).

Your phone and smartwatch may soon tell doctors if you're entering a depressive episode — and Olympian Michael Phelps is on board .
Two companies are exploring ways to use data from our smartphones and fitness bands to help detect depression. One of them, called Medibio, has backing from Olympic swimmer Michael Phelps and presented a version of its product to the FDA this week. The other, a startup called Mindstrong Health, is led by Tom Insel, the former director of the National Institutes of Mental Health.Away from the Olympic pool and its exhilarating sounds of splashing, clapping, and whistle-blowing, swimmer Michael Phelps was living a separate life.
