After using Fitbit Inspire 2 for a couple of months, I've got Fitbit Ace 3 for my three kids. I chose Fitbit because I find that the brand is an absolute leader in the health and fitness trackers market. After trying a couple of brand-name trackers, I concluded that the Fitbit is most comfortable to wear, easy to use, has the best app, provides accurate measurements and interesting Premium features.
Kids compare their achievements: steps, active minutes, sleep hours, badges and trophies, and they are often challenging each other.
What I loved the most in the Ace version for kids is: *** Fitbit Ace does NOT have games!!! Yey!!! ***
Fitbit Ace purely serves its purpose without distractions: it tracks, motivates, and is helpful for parents as a sleep tracker. Getting enough sleep is crucial for kids' development and healthy growth. Sleep tracking has many details, well explained and convenient to follow.
The design of Fitbit Ace is similar to Inspire II - it has touch "buttons" on both sides, making the shape of the pebble symmetrical, where nothing sticks out. The original silicone band is very comfortable to wear and feels nice on the skin, even when it's wet. The secure adjustable clasp is a classic one, and it's the best choice for kids. Kids usually do not remove the Fitbit when they shower, and the trackers are proved to be waterproof. Occasionally, I take out the pebble and clean and disinfect the bracelet's interior side.
It was quick and straightforward to connect the tracker to the Fitbit App. Also, I had zero issues creating accounts for my kids and connecting them to the appropriate tracker. The synchronization also goes well.
The battery life is exceptional - kids are charging the tracker about once a week, if not less often.
And again, the best part of this fantastic, modern, high-quality and thoughtfully designed gadget for kids - Hallelujah, NO GAMES!
I have Fitbit charge 2 for years and it’s amazing. I bought three for family members and they all love it. HOWEVER, this Ace3 for kid is very bad! Suddenly no reaction and suddenly wake up. I firstly decide to return and it works again, so I cancel the return but it doesn’t work now in hours. MUST return and would like to try ace2. Disappointed with the product!
We bought our son the Ace 3 for his birthday. He loved it and it worked well (would have said 4 stars!) - until it didn't (and became one star). We always put it on for him to ensure it is secure...but it fell off while we were camping and was lost. He only had it one month. I am very disappointed (and he is devastated). I would think that a child's device would be more secure. Lost devices are not covered by the warranty (no matter how quickly they fail!) and so Fitbit would not help me. Ended up being a lot of money for one months use!
My son LOVES this watch. He loves that he can change the display, he loves to track his steps daily and check how much sleep he had the night before. It fits well, comfortable, waterproof. All around great gift, will see how it holds up!
Great watch, easy to set up and use. Only complaint is the screen scratches easy, kind of frustrating since it’s a kids watch so I expected it to be more durable. I’d recommend getting a screen protector, I wish I had! Otherwise no issues.
Any product for kids needs to be strong. The clasp on the Ace 3 is flimsy plastic and fell off many times. We returned it before it was lost. The app is also terrible. The Ace does not provide heart rate monitoring so you don't get the Sleep Stages information in the app. At the same price point you can get the Fitbit Inspire HR which is built to a much stronger standard; comes with Heart Rate monitoring; and gives you the full range of app features. I cannot recommend this product at all.
I ordered this tracker with the hope it would track my daughter's physical activities, but no, it did not. For every exercise, except walking, you have to log it by yourself. It makes no sense that I have a tracker and I have to tell it "She has just ridden her bike for 30 mins for a distance of 10 km". It does not automatically track the activities nor has a manual button to click on to say "I am going to swim, please track my exercise" neither. Basically, it does not track anything, you track it yourself, and the tracker will record it for you. For sleep tracking, it tracks how long your kids slept, but not how much time deep sleep, REM, light sleep, etc. It is simplified to "Asleep/Restless/Awake". I know my daughter is sleeping. I don't need a tracker for it. What I want to know is how deep her sleep is. Useless.
Die Uhr ist toll, leider kann ich aber nur eine Fitbit Ace3 meinem Konto hinzufügen. Bei zwei Kindern mit der gleichen Uhr muss also eine von meinem Mann und eine von mir verwaltet werden! Das ist doof!!! Gibt es dazu eine andere Lösung? Und das Armband bzw. der Verschluss geht immer wieder auseinander! Das sollte bei einer Sportuhr für Kinder nicht der Fall sein, das ist nervig! Zudem beschweren sich beide Kinder über leichte Rötungen am Arm. Bei den billigen no Name Herstellern der Armbänder passiert dies nicht! Soll ich jetzt jedem raten diese dazu zu kaufen?
I didn't really believe the claimed battery life between charges, but having now tested it, it's pretty close. It's not the cheapest, or as fully featured, compared to other devices on the market, but it is reliable and works well for what it is. Being waterproof also gives peace of mind. What essentially sold me on it, was that other family and friends also own various Fitbit's, so it fits perfectly into that eco system.
