Beyond the bright aesthetics are all the features that help kids discover that fitness can be fun, like family challenges to clock up the most steps and activity minutes, and animated clock face characters (including you know what) that change with daily progress. There is also sleep tracking and parental control via the Fitbit app to keep track of kids’ activity and connections.
Who: Designed for kids six-years and up – especially ones who can’t get enough of those Despicable Me scene-stealers.

All the features of the first-gen interactive smart display are ported over, including Alexa voice control for timer settings, news and sports updates, as well as access to content from popular streaming services. And you can integrate it into your smart home ecosystem for full control from a single hub. It can also double as a digital photo frame in standby mode.
