For this review I received both an adult and kid’s ibitz to help facilitate the review. My ibitz came in all black and the kids one was orange. The setup on both devices was quick and easy and both devices came with an extra battery. I downloaded the apps but had some trouble locating in the iTunes store but was able to get to the app downloads by going to the ibitz website. There were two apps needed, the Unity app is the adult app and the GeoPalz app is for the kids ibitz. Both were very quick and easy to set up and use. We also setup a Disney’s Club Penguin account so that the kids could earn coins to use in the game.

The devices are great little pedometers and help you to set and create goals to help get you on the path to a healthier life. The kids enjoyed being able to see how well they did compared to me and it became a bit of a game to see who did in fact do better. For me, it motivated me to get back to exercising after our brutal winter. Once I saw how far off I was from reaching 10,000 steps a day I really tried to get my count up and have also been doing aerobic exercise as well now. So this has really helped me to try to get back on track and it is fun to be able to do this as a family because it makes it easier to stay motivated.
