GeoPalz family suite of ibitz trackers measure the activity of the whole family. The kids’ data is transmitted into gamified apps where they have an avatar character and physical activity can unlock levels or prizes. For parents, the appeal is having all of the family’s data in the same app, where they can set up group accountability.
