US wearables maker Fitbit has launched Ace 3, a fitness tracker specially designed for kids. The Fitbit Ace 3 comes with a touchscreen PMOLED display and offers up to eight days of battery life on a single charge. Kids can wear it while swimming, as it is water-resistant up to 50 meters. Apart from all-day activity tracking, the Ace 3 also offers reminders to move.

The Ace 3 has a 20% brighter screen and includes do not disturb and sleep modes. The new animated clock faces change and grows as kids make progress toward their fitness goals. The clock faces are a bunny, a cat, a Martian, and spaceship designs. The screen size is 1.47 inches and has 240 x 240 pixels resolution.

Furthermore, the manufacturer does not have a heart rate monitor this year and offers children the well-known tracking of activities including Sports modes (e.g., running, hiking, cycling), pedometer, and sleep monitoring.

The weight of the tracker is 70 grams and the new model also enables the easy change of bracelets. Except for the note "waterproof", the datasheet does not contain any information on protection against moisture. But since its predecessor, Fitbit Ace 2, was able to survive in a water depth of up to 50 meters and was suitable for swimming, one can strongly assume that the Fitbit Ace 3 is also equipped with a similar or even better protection.

The Fitbit Ace 3 can be paired with Android smartphones and Apple iPhones (iOS) via Bluetooth. With the help of the Fitbit app, children get access to essential information about their daily routine, motivation to exercise more, and incentives, such as virtual badges and avatars. Parents, on the other hand, can use a family account to keep an eye on their child's activities, approve friend requests, and view statistics.

Later this summer it will have two Minions-themed accessory bands (in Blue and Black with yellow buckles) available separately for $29.95. Fitbit Ace 3 is available for preorders from the Fitbit online store.
