Our world is a never ending potpourri of screens.  Due to that, now more than ever, parents are always encouraging their kids to “get outside and do something!”  To help with that process, Garmin has released the Vivofit jr.2.  The device helps encourage kids to get active and stay active as well as allowing parents to monitor that activity.  The devices come in different kid themes of Star Wars, Disney, and Marvel.  
The devices come with a user replaceable battery that lasts for more than a year.  This means no charging!  It also tracks your kids daily activity and offers advancement in themed adventures on the free mobile app.  It also tracks steps and sleep.  Cost?  $99.99 from the Garmin website.  
Here are more details from Garmin:

vívofit jr. Parent-controlled App

Inspire kids to stay active every day with magical adventures. Every day that kids meet their 60-minute activity goals, they advance in Mickey’s Birthday Surprise: A Disney Adventure, uncovering adventures featuring Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse and all their pals. The app experience matches the style of band you choose. Get access to new adventures and more fun by purchasing additional bands and pairing them with the free parent-controlled mobile app.

Parents manage the kid’s activity tracker by using the app. Add multiple children, and see their steps, sleep, daily activities and chore data when it syncs6 to your mobile device. Assign tasks and chores, set schedule alerts, find out how many reward coins each child has, access adventures, and even invite the whole family to compete in daily step challenges together — all from your mobile device.
