Disney and Garmin Create New Disney Princess Fitness Band and Gaming App

0

Disney and Garmin have combined forces once again to create some fitness magic with their newest vivofit jr. 2 band and accompanying app.

Previously the two companies have teamed up for Mickey, Marvel and Star Wars fitness bands for kids. Now they are creating a new Princess band with an accompanying gameing app.

The new Disney Princess band will include the app: Magical Kingdoms: A Disney Princess Adventure game. Here kids can play alongside Ariel, Belle, Jasmine, Mulan and Rapunzel. These adventures are meant to encourage activity and movement in children.

Besides the new Disney Princess game, kids can also connect to other fun games that help them progress to daily fitness goals.

There’s also a Parental Personal Assistant Feature:

“Parents can use it to manage the vívofit jr. 2 fitness tracker. View activity, responsibilities, sleep, chore data and more after syncing with compatible Apple®, Android™ and Amazon Fire Tablet devices. Invite the whole family to compete in a daily step challenge, assign tasks and chores, designate a reward virtual coin value, and find out how many coins each child has. Those in-app coins can be redeemed by your kiddos for agreed-upon rewards. It’s all controlled right from your device.”

Rewards Reminders and Responsibilites:

“With vívofit jr. 2, parents assign chores and schedule alerts from the smartphone app, and kids’ bands show them their new jobs to do. These can be set up to recur weekly or even daily — perfect for children who need reminders. And for youngsters who procrastinate, schedule alerts in the parent app so vívofit jr. 2 reminds them to finish homework, brush their teeth and more. The alert will remind them with an icon what they’re supposed to be doing. Then, the child can start the task timer on the device so they know how long they have left.”

Here’s a video about the new product!

Right now it’s available in purple (with embossed princesses) or pin (with embossed castle, designs, and symbols) and costs $79.99.

Disney has been a big part of my life for years--from family trips to WDW to growing up on Disney classics, TV, and movies. I'm a mom and an art teacher. I love to share my love for Disney and I'm also a co-host of the Disney fan podcast Pirates and Princesses (PNP.) Opinions, like my freckles, are all mine.
