For kids, there’s the Fitbit Ace 2™, designed to help those aged six and up learn good habits at an early age to set them up on a healthier path later in life.

It comes with child-friendly features such as a swimproof design and a bumper to protect the screen, as well as challenges to keep help motivate kids to keep moving, and bright and colourful avatars to personalise their profiles within the Fitbit app.

Fitbit will also be redesigning its app to make it easier for users to connect with others on Fitbit’s social community, log data and understand their stats, see their progress in Challenges, and make their dashboard even more personalised.

The update will also include a new section, Fitbit Focus, which will provides users with messages and tips to keep them informed and motivated.
