GeoPalz Activity Tracker Review and Giveaway! 3 Winners! Great Pedometer for Kids! - CLOSED







First Impression: I was so excited when I got my  GeoPalz package in the mail, and even more excited when I opened it up!  The pedometers are adorable and so edgey!  Gavin was excited too, and immediately wanted to know how to use them.  We got the JujuBug and the Rock-N-Roll one!


Style/Choices:  They have twelve styles to choose from at the moment, and every three months new ones are released.  They have cutesy, edgy, fantasy, and rock.  The newest addition is a virtual pedometer so if you already have a pedometer, you can use that one and still use the amazingly motivating software on the GeoPalz site.

Functionality:  GeoPalz pedometers are not just cute, they work very well too!  The arty design holds a very durable pedometer inside a special fitted pocket.  Gavin checked to make sure that it is accurate (imagine a 3 year old walking around counting his steps while clutching his edgy Rock - n -Roll, see it is educational too! 

How it Promotes a Healthy Lifestyle:  I think this is a no brainer!  What better way to motivate your child to get off of the couch and start getting some exercise!  They have an amazing program where at the end of everyday you log in your steps and once you hit certain benchmarks, you get awards and prizes.
Of course the prizes promote a healthy lifestyle as well!  

You get a fun pedometer, an interactive way to log in your steps, great prizes, and an online community so the kids can support each other.

Parent Involvement: Here is my favorite part, every week I get an email telling me about Gavin's progress!  I think I use mine more than Gavin uses his, did you know that my hike is approximately 5000 steps!  So neat!

Cost Effective:  GeoPalz are only $19.99!  What a great deal!  They run about as much as a regular pedometer without all of the cool software.

Pros: 
  • Gets your child off of the couch and outdoors
  • Fun designs
  • Prizes
  • Awards
  • Parent notification emails

Cons:
  • The designs are very fun for older kids, but for my three year old boy, he would probably rather have a sports one than an edgy one.  Sometimes we swap and he takes the Jujubug one.
  • The logging of steps is on your honor, so older kids might need to be monitored. 

BUY IT: Go to the  GeoPalz web page. 

WIN IT:   Three of my lucky readers will win their very own GeoPalz pedometer!
