Adidas has designed a wearable for physical education class, in an effort to tackle youth obesity in the US. Adidas made a commitment to help young students stay fit and healthy with the new Adidas Zone. Fitness wearables for kids are becoming more and more popular. This heart rate monitoring band will make sure that every student gets a good workout as fitness trackers are set to be on the list of top Christmas toys for 2016.
Adidas Zone wristbands track heart rate and are designed to encourage activity. It’s not a watch, but it is perfect for running, jumping rope, playing hoops. The fitness wearable will show your child’s heart rate and a color will indicate the level of activity being registered (low, moderate or “vigorous”). This durable heart-rate monitor uses the cloud to share a student’s personal fitness data with teachers. This child-friendly fitness tracker is designed to whip school kids into shape.
The Adidas Zone arrives in partnership with Interactive Health Technologies’ Spirit System, which is designed to be used in schools. The Spirit system allows students to work one-on-one with teachers and rewards children for exercise and staying active. Given the child obesity problem in the United States, it’s easy to imagine a scenario where every school kid in America is sporting one of these.
The Zone wearable fitness tracker is priced at $139, while a class package (which includes 28 trackers, software, cases and a NFC reader) costs $3,995.
