I'm not sure an activity tracker for a kid this age makes sense but it is darn cute. I guess with the parents obsessing about fitness or hopefully so, it isn't a stretch to think a kid would enjoy emulating the parent. The screen is very clear, the sound could be a touch louder but that may be old ears vs. young ears that haven't been corrupted by 50 years of Rock. The activities are good and seem very appealing to an age appropriate kid. The fact that it can be set for the time when the kid is in school so that the little voice doesn't come popping out during class is a necessary feature. I think it will provide enjoyment and fun. My experience with this age is that physical activity is hardly an issue but I guess with the epidemic of obesity there will be concerned parents who see this as a requisite. Since it doubles as a watch, I think it will have both utilitarian aspects and fun ones from the activities. I will report back here if that doesn't hold true after the serious test by my in house 5 year old.
To set this up, you will need to connect to an Internet connected computer with an available USB port.
