Monday, June 11th, 2018

Fitbit has been in the business of making fitness trackers and wearables for years, but they've all been designed for adults. Now, there's a kid-specific fitness tracker called the Ace. It's available for purchase now, and it'll cost you $100.

Many of its rivals have changed their focus or simply gone out of business, but Fitbit is fast becoming a household name. The last few wrist-based Fitbit devices have been vaguely smartwatch-like, but the true Fitbit smartwatch has been elusive—until now.
