The new Minions animated clock face, available exclusively to Ace 3 devices, allows kids to become the Minions’ latest “boss” as the expressive character runs, dances, skateboards, and swims, encourages kids to get moving, and illustrates their progress towards daily customizable goals for either active minutes or steps.

These activity bands have 8-day battery life.

These special editions Ace 3 activity bands have the same stringent parental controls as other Ace 3 bands.

Parents can set up a Fitbit family account and manage privacy controls and protections. Through the exclusive Parent View in the app, parents can also see their kid’s activity and approve their kid’s friend requests.

“Parents and kids love our Ace activity and sleep trackers for their engaging and motivating features that inspire kids to stay active and build healthy habits,” said Alison Ross Powers, Head of Global Strategic Partnerships for Fitbit at Google. “Introducing Illumination’s Minions to the Ace family brings fun, new Minions inspired features that weave in even more personality and surprises into the Fitbit experience for families and kids, keeping them moving and happy alongside their favorite on-screen characters.”

This new release from Fitbit comes after the success of Garmin’s Disney-themed smartwatches for kids. Garmin has successfully marketed its Disney-themed Vivofit Junior 2 and Vivofit Jr. 3 to this young demographic.
