During my recent trip to the local electronics store to pick up some other activity trackers that I’ll be testing soon I came across something interesting. On the end-cap where the adult-sized devices reside was a rainbow of colorful little units called the iBitz Kids Activity Trackers. Using my phone to quickly visit the manufacturer’s website informed me that this might be a fun gadget for my six-year-daughter. At only $34.99 it was worth a shot, right?
Do a web search for “activity trackers” right now. Go ahead, do it. What do you see? Almost every link is a gadget reviewer providing their thoughts or comparison of the latest and greatest device to come to market. Readers beware: this blog is NOT going to turn into one of those sites!
