Ratings and Reviews
It does what's needed
I really like this app. I agree with some of the other reviewers - the game is a bit rubbish and it would I imagine have been fairly easy to make sokmethinfore interesting and fun. But my son's not bothered - his motivation to move is the step count not the game. So far I haven't worked out how to link him up with any friends to compete with but I think I can. The sleep tracker is interesting and he loves the chores side of it - he's never been so motivated to clear the table or do homework!
Sync is intermittent and you begin to lose faith
For the most part this is a great idea and we have used most features such as the chores and rewards system. It has also made my 5 year old daughter learn the basics of time much quicker. Where this falls down is that the sync between watch and app can sometimes be intermittent, meaning some days the activity graph just stops. Other times you know they have been very active all day but the graph shows no movement. I did manage to catch it one evening saying there had been 3 hours of activity and 15,000 steps. The next morning the previous day said there had been only 9 minutes of activity. There is obviously a bug which hasn’t been picked up. All of this means you lose faith if the accuracy of an activity watch. It means that you are left with a very expensive digital clock.
Perfect for my 6 Yr old boy
Fantastic way to motivate your child to perform chores for coins and redeem them for playing video games or movie night. Gives him a concept of exchange and finance whilst he gets chores done that normally he would have seen no instant benefit for this other than pocket money.
Activity tracking obviously great but the sleep function even better to understand why he may be grumpy if he has been up early or had a restless sleep. No charging of device needed.
Best birthday gift and loved by all the family and his friends.
