Use Your Child’s Physical Activity To Power Games, Earn TV Privileges – The iBitz PowerKey and Unity activity trackers [VIDEO]

ibitz PowerKey allows kids to unlock games through their physical activity. Kids take care of a virtual GeoBotz character through their own personal choices of eating right, drinking plenty of water, and exercising. If the kids are maintaining their goals throughout the day, they see a happy GeoBot. If they are under their goal, GeoBot encourages them to get outside, take their dog for a walk, or jump on the trampoline.

ibitz Unity allows parents to attach their physical activity data as well as each of their family member’s data into one unified view so that they can see updates and health of their entire family. We’ve extended this notion on to teachers that want to track their student’s activity, as well as walking groups, troop leaders, corporations, and other wellness initiatives.
