iBitz Powerkeys, designed for children are also available in a range of different colours. As well as tracking their activity, they sync to a child-friendly version of the app which unlocks items in many different games in the App store, including Disney's Club Penguin - the idea being that if a child wants to progress in a game, they have to get active first instead of simply sitting around playing on phones and iPads all day long.

You can have a tracker for each member of the family paired up to the same app, say on the family iPad and have competitions to see who can take the most steps in a day.
Setting up the iBitz is simple, however, you will have to confirm the GeoPalz account has been authorised by an adult using a debit/credit card (you will not be charged). There's also set up video tutorials available for both adults and children here.
iBitz Unity for Parents is priced at £39.99 and the iBitz Powerkey for Kids are priced at £29.99, both available on Amazon and from John Lewis.
