You’re a health-conscious, technologically-sophisticated geek who tries to take care of yourself, right? You probably have an Apple or Android watch, or a FitBit, and you track your exercise goals and eating so you can lead a healthier life. That’s wonderful for you, but what about your kids? They’re a bit young for an Apple Watch, but wouldn’t it be nice to keep an eye on their wellness and get them involved in their health?
Kiddo is a new project on Kickstarter this week, and we want to get the word out about their cool new wearable for kids aged 3-10. We’re going to feature one cool aspect of the Kiddo each day, and hopefully get you excited about backing this project.
Kiddo Helps Kids Learn Better Lifestyle Habits
A wearable is just a tool. It collects data. What you do with that data is what’s important. With Kiddo’s companion app, parents can look at the data and with the guidance of the most up-to-date knowledge about early childhood development, and work with their kids to make the best choices about the food they eat, how much water they drink, their activity levels, and more. The app includes an incentive system that allows parents and kids to set up specific goals and rewards, making living healthy fun!
Obviously long term success requires parents to be willing to put the work in too. But the rewards of raising our kids to be aware of their personal health choices will literally last a lifetime.
Kiddo is live now on Kickstarter. They’ve already met their initial $25,000 funding goal to bootstrap their production of market-ready models that your kids will love to wear, so you know you’re going to get a unit if you pledge; and if you get in early on the campaign, you can get a Super Early Bird unit for just $79.
