When they're constantly playing and moving around kids loving having a device to track their movement - and the Fitbit Ace 2 is a perfect tracker to keep them informed on how many steps they're doing.
Normally going for $69.95, the price of the Fitbit Ace 2 has been slashed by more than half. It's now a wallet-friendly $29.99, a saving of nearly 60 per cent on its original price during the Prime Day event.
Perfect for children who are six or older, this child's activity tracker is a great way for little ones to start building healthy habits. The watch allows them to track their sleep and record how many active zone minutes they have achieved that da. In our experience, they'll be as excited as you about how much progress they're making.
If they're an avid swimmer, or they just don't want to take it off at bath time, you won't need to worry about it the tracker getting wet either - as it's swim proof.
But remember, Amazon Prime Day only runs until the end of Tuesday June 22 - so click quick to score this incredible deal!

During lockdown she found her love of running outside again and now attempts to run around 50 miles a month. When it comes to other fitness, she loves a sweaty cardio session – although since she’s been working out from home she’s sure her downstairs neighbors aren’t too happy about it. She also loves to challenge herself - and has signed up to do hiking holidays, intense bootcamps and last year she went on her dream activity holiday: paddle boarding around deserted islands in Croatia. On her rest days, she loves to recover with a simple yoga flow session – the perfect antidote to her active fitness schedule.
