Not sure if this is the right page, but there you go....

My 9 year old boy asked me for a kind of fitbit. He loves running and he needs a watch.
Can you recommend any decent for a child?

Does he need to connect it to a mobile phone? He does not have one of course.

In all honesty the couple of 9yr old I know with fitness trackers have a Fitbit Charge2! I was shock at that and somewhat dreading 4yrs time, when my son is that age, if that's what he is going to want.

You could look at TomTom ones, if specifically for running - they had a load of reduced models a few months ago. But I think it's still more expensive than I'd want to spend on a 9yr old.

Garmin have a tracker for children - think it’s called the Vivofit Jr.
