What the experts say
While it is not revolutionary, Wareable liked the features of the Fitbit Ace 2 as well as its design, goal celebrations and the fact that it is waterproof. It also comes in at a great price. However, it has not added more tracking features than its predecessor and battery life can be reduced by the inbuilt animations. It remains one of the best options on the market for kids.
A bigger, more attention-grabbing display makes this a worthwhile upgrade on the original Ace according to Pocket-lint. On the negative side, the battery life could be longer and sometimes it feels like the display isn't fully secured into the strap.
While Digital Trends agreed that the animations, designs and trophies made it a great device for kids, it did seem to be a little bit more annoyed by the downsides of this device. Most notably the display can fall out of the band and scratches easily.

I purchased this for my 9 year old I am pleased with the product.. My Son can count his steps and use it as a clock at the same time, he can also set timers. I have set up a family account on my mobile phone (as he is too young to have one) and I can track his sleep, count his steps and allow him to do races with me. I have to accept any friends before they can contact him which gives me piece of mind knowing that no one can contact him on this device.

Daughter is well happy with her watch. We did experience some difficulty in setting up her account though, an issue we are not alone in.

Bought for my 6 year old for Christmas. Have linked to my phone and my Fitbit account, so easy to do and quick to set up. She’s going to absolutely love it. Looks very groovy as well.

My son is 8 and loves tracking his steps and physical activity. We monitor it on his I pad and his sleep tracker is great too.

Only disappointment is that you cannot use it with the Amazon Kindle fire.

My son wanted this as lots of kids at school had 1. He saved all his money & wears it everyday (including while swimming). He was disappointed it didn’t have a heart rate monitor.
