The Leapband is essentially a device designed to get your kids up and moving. It is aimed at kids ages 4 to 7 and can be considered a kind of fitness tracker for very young children. It aims to promote healthy habits by using games with physical challenges that involve walking, running, jumping and dancing that the user must complete in order to earn credit to spend on their virtual pet. There are eight different pets to choose from including a unicorn, robot, dragon and more.
The child’s activity is measured by a built in accelerometer. Other than the fitness challenges and games there aren’t a lot of features to keep kids engaged. It also doesn’t have any of the voice calling or GPS tracking support that is available in other device, so it really isn’t a smart watch in the true sense.
