I just got this for my 8 year old and disappointed in many ways.
The lack of heart rate monitor was a surprise, I had thought this would be a fairly basic component of a fitness tracker.
The sleep reminder doesn't even get sent to the child's fitbit... Just to the app - which is useless to the child if they don't own a phone. I also read that you could send messages but that is not to the fitbit itself - just to the app. Very unhappy about this and I has hoped it would help my child be more proactive about their own bedtime and they could ha...ve fun receiving basic messages. I had hoped it would curb the desire for them to be on the phone any longer than needed. The app is poorly designed with settings being difficult to navigate and it being annoying switching between parental view and kids view if all on one device. It would work better if all accounts were simply displayed along side eachother to navigate between eachother and compare stats and have shared goals. The sleep tracker stops tracking when someone else in the same room wakes up.

Beautiful little watch
I love this watch, my 10 yrs old had it for over a year and he loves it too. It keeps him motivated. The only reason I couldn’t give it 5 stars, because you need a seperate device to link it to. So you can’t have your Fitbit and your child’s Fitbit linked to the same phone which a bit silly as it’s for kids. It’s also very hard to connect to your device. In the positive side, it calculates his steps, it has a timer and stop watch. Good battery life as well. Overall beautiful product.

My son loves it!!
I bought the Fitbit Ace 2 Night Sky for my son's 8th birthday and he LOVES it!
He finds it very easy to use, he loves checking how many steps he has done every day and it really encourages him to do more exercise to try and reach his goal or to beat the number he had the previous day.
He loved choosing the little icon on the screen and was excited to see the little plant he chose grow bigger over the day.
I also find it extremely handy that it is water resistant so i dont have to worry about him wearing it in the shower if he accidently forgets to take it off.
Overall, I am very happy with this purchase.
Bought it for my son as a Christmas present. Not a very fancy tracker but did its work for telling time, timer,alarm, tracking steps etc. However, the tracker kept popping out of the bend!!!! We were lucky to find it for a few times but this time it's completely gone. So basically Fitbit Ace 2 is a SPORTS tracker that cannot be worn to a ball game because it would pop out in the middle of the game and you would never be able to find it. What kind of tracker it is? Can't wear it to do sports? Very disappointed.
Would have been great... but!
The band broke in the first week and I had to spend another $49 on a new band.
The new band is also about to crack so the quality is appalling on the straps.
My little one though loves wearing his Fitbit yet I struggle with the thought of buying a band a month at this rate.
He also gets a terrible rash too from the bands - they should have a metallic or leather option for children too as the plastic causes rashes and dermatitis.
Very poor. Not worth the money
The Ace 2 is aimed at kids. However, the wristband is very flimsy and the actual Fitbit doesn't do much.
Our son had asked for a smart watch/fitness tracker for Christmas and so we got the Ace 2 as Fitbit is a well known brand.
He has had it less than a week and the wristband has already broken. He has had watches before and never has a wristband broken; however, the Fitbit wristband is cheap and flimsy and so not surprised it has broken.
The actual Ace 2 is waterproof (we have had it in the pool) and has a battery life of about 4 days (it ...is advertised as 7) between recharges - we recharged at 18%, so maybe 5 days at a squeeze. But it doesn't do much and there are no Apps or value adding stuff for it. It basically has a step/activity counter and a sleep timer. Although the sleep timer is very inaccurate - as an example, before the band broke, it said son went to sleep at 8:10 PM and woke at 7:35 AM - actually he was asleep by 7:05 PM and woke up at 6:20 AM (I was there!)
