ReimaGO – The World’s First Wearable Activity Sensor for Kids
30th January 2018
In 2016, Finnish children’s activewear brand Reima wanted to change the way children view physical activity so they partnered with Suunto to create the world’s first wearable activity sensor for children: the ReimaGO.
According to the World Health Organisation, children should aim to do at least one hour of activity a day and, as parents, it can be difficult to monitor for how long your child is exercising. Enter ReimaGO.
This activity sensor isn’t about counting calories and losing weight; it’s about tracking the intensity and duration of physical activity and transferring the data onto an app, which can be downloaded on iOS and Android. The ReimaGO app turns the collected data into energy for a virtual character on a scoreboard where parents can set surprises and reward children for their efforts.
The sensor itself is durable and waterproof and attaches to the clothing inside the designated ReimaGO pocket on certain Reima clothing. The sensor can also be put into the pocket of normal clothing.
From hiking to skiing to swimming, the ReimaGO encourages children to walk a bit further, jump a bit longer and swim a bit faster.
Reima will be exhibiting at Childcare Expo London on 2 & 3 March. Register for your free tickets today.
