Gallery: The 6 Best Fitness Trackers for Kids That'll Get Them Outta Their Seat and on Their Feet (Bestproducts.com)

Believe it or not, kids can benefit from fitness trackers just as much as we can. Similar to the many reasons adults enjoy using them, fitness trackers for kids encourage and motivate your child to stay active and healthy for their continued growth. Most fitness trackers can count steps, exercise, and even sleep — but since these are fitness trackers for kids, all of those metrics are made as fun as possible. Your child can collect and earn digital rewards for their achievements, and parents can be alerted when milestones are achieved so you can reward them, too. They're durable, come in bright colors, and some wristbands even feature characters from your child’s favorite TV shows and movies.The Best Fitness Trackers for Kids  Best Overall: Fitbit Ace 3 Fitness Tracker for KidsKiller Battery Life: Garmin vívofit jr. 3 Fitness Tracker for KidsBest for Older Kids: Fitbit Versa 2 Fitness TrackerExcellent Heart-Rate Monitoring: Xiaomi Mi Smart Band 6 Fitness TrackerBest Smartwatch for Kids: Apple Watch SE SmartwatchBest for GPS Tracking: Verizon GizmoWatch 2 Kids Smartwatch and Fitness Tracker What to ConsiderThere are dozens of fitness trackers on the market — both for kids and adults — that’ll help hold you accountable to your fitness goals and build healthy habits. Like with any other kid-focused gadget, you should err on the side of caution before strapping one to your son or daughter. Although they are excellent motivators, they may encourage an unhealthy obsession with weight and exercise, and those that are cellular-connected come with the potential risk of being hacked. We feel it's important to present you with all the information needed to make a buying decision. Here are a few other things to keep in mind.SizeKid-centric fitness trackers are designed with children’s smaller-sized wrists in mind. For context on size, the best-selling Garmin vívofit jr. 3 fits 130- to 175-millimeter sized-wrists, and the Fitbit Ace 3 can fit wrists between 116 and 168 millimeters. Plus, almost every kids’ fitness tracker includes an adjustable band. Fitbit even has a printable sizing chart so you can see if the included bands will fit your son or daughter.ConnectivityWhen you’re shopping for a fitness tracker for kids, you’ll want to pay attention to what connectivity options it has on board. Most trackers need to be paired to a smartphone or tablet over Bluetooth. This way, they can connect to the internet for syncing fitness and sleep data, monitoring your child’s fitness progress over time, and so you and your family can compete in step challenges.If your child doesn’t have their own smartphone or tablet, you’ll likely have to connect it to one of your devices. A handful of kids' smartwatches also double as basic fitness trackers, but these models require a mobile data plan.FeaturesAlmost all fitness trackers for kids count steps, your child’s total active minutes, their distance, and sleep. They also can display “In Case of Emergency” (ICE) information like important phone numbers, addresses, or allergens. Unsurprisingly, their battery life varies greatly — some trackers need to be charged daily while others last up to a year. Most feature durable builds that shouldn't succumb to scratches and scuffs no matter how rough your son or daughter plays. The best fitness trackers for kids are waterproof, too. As much as we wish we could report that they’re smart enough to do chores, too, they can't! But, they can beep and remind your son or daughter to complete their share of housework (we'll take it!) No matter your budget or your child's age, we've put together a guide of the very best fitness tracker for kids to give you reliable options for getting your child off the couch and on their feet!

Released last year, the Sense does it all. It tracks the basics, like your heart rate during a workout, your resting heart rate, and the like. But it also tracks more advanced characteristics too, like your blood’s oxygen levels, your body temperature when you sleep, and changes in your sweat level during a gym session. Like other devices, it also has an electrocardiogram (ECG) to assess heartbeat abnormalities as well.

It’s a fully loaded device that fits in anywhere, ready for your workout or as a basic everyday wellness tracker. Plus, it bundles all that data into a look that’s built for the gym or errand-running alike (if you want to read more on everything the model has to offer, be sure to check out our Fitbit Sense review). But, simply put: It’s one of Fitbit’s finest trackers—and one that’s easy to recommend, especially when it’s on sale.
