She’s a pretty responsible kid, and we’re looking at some alternatives that she can use to track her steps. Preferably a solid piece watch as opposed to one having a removable piece.
Suggestions are welcome!
Thanks everyone for the wonderful recommendations and boosts. My daughter and I will work through the list to find something that will work for her, once her school day is done.
Ideally, it will pair nicely with an older iPhone, has a solid one-piece body (so we don’t run into another issue with losing the main piece), and can handle steps/time/timers. 😊
@robin I had a Mi Band 4 with the same problem, it kept popping out of the band. I tried a handful of different style bands and they all had the same problem.
I've switched to one that uses a standard watch band; this one is a Umidgi Uwatch3 GPS, but there's a few different options. Amazifit Bip is a popular one, and that one has highly customizable faces which is fun for a kid.
@robin I don't know how usable the PineTime is these days, but it might be something to look at? It's CHEAP too.
Might still be at more of a dev stage though. Not sure yet.
...unsure how the strap is attached.
@robin my wife has the Garmin Venu 2 and she likes it! Have you tried them before? Alternately, a lot of phones have fitness tracking apps but the phones can be a bit bulky (speaking from experience as a runner!)
@robin Is she only interested in counting steps? If so would a cheap and simple pedometer be sufficient?

@robin I have to recommend most Garmin products, they're all rather solid and have a desktop app. main problem is the price, bit higher than I'd like, but still neat
