An activity tracker designed for kids. What could go wrong? These wearables for kids ages 4-7 come in cool designs from Star Wars, Disney's Frozen, to Spiderman and more. They sure sound fun. That is, until kids learn parents can track not just steps, movement, and sleep but also CHORES! Garmin's Vivofit Jr 2 connects to an app via Bluetooth. The app lets parents track whether or not kids have done their chores, if they've moved for 60 minutes a day, if they actually went to sleep when they were supposed to and dole out rewards if they have. Now Mom and Dad can be Big Brother too!

Qué podría pasar si algo falla

Garmin has a good track record of how they handle users' personal information. And this fitness tracker for kids does come with parental controls. However, the device tracks the activity and sleep of a child. Parents should ask themselves, "Is this information I want gathered and potentially accessible to others about my child?" Also, there is a good question to be raised about teaching young children that this level of digital surveillance in their lives is OK.

Garmin began to restore services to customers on Monday morning, after being held hostage for a reported ransom of $10m, although some services were still operating with limited functionality.
