There’s no denying kids seem to have an endless amount of energy that no amount of coffee in the world can replicate.
Physical activity is essential for kids to get some of that excess energy out of their system as well as playing a part in living a healthy and balanced lifestyle.
Spacetalk Adventurer’s Fitness features can help parents get a better understanding of their child’s physical activity and includes both a Step Counter and Heart Rate Monitor.
Keeping active can not only help kids keep fit and healthy, but can also help them focus better in class, strengthens bones and even reduce the risk of depression.
Let’s run through how to access and view your child’s fitness statistics on the Spacetalk app as well as on their Adventurer watch.
On the Spacetalk App
From the Spacetalk app you can see your child’s step count and heart rate, as well as set step goals with a few easy taps.
To access the Fitness features, tap on your child’s name on the home screen.
Scroll down to Wellness and tap on Fitness. From here you can switch between viewing their step count and heart rate.
On the step screen, tap on the gear icon to set your child’s step goal. You can also turn goals off completely from this screen.
If you scroll down, you can see your child’s steps for each day of the current week as well as a graph outlining their steps for the week, month and year.
Heart Rate Monitor
The heart rate screen shows your child’s lowest, average and highest beats per minute, as well as a graph and breakdown of their heartbeat for the current week.
Your child’s step and heart rate data can help paint a picture of their overall level of wellness. A high heart rate and low step count could mean your child is feeling anxious, while a low step count and low heart rate could mean they’re feeling sad.
