GeoPalz is the first decorative pedometer and online game that allows users to earn points through physical activity. Worn on the hip or shoe, the GeoPalz pedometer uses sophisticated tri-axis 3D accelerometer technology to accurately track steps and physical activity. By logging onto the GeoPalz website, users can securely record their activity to earn points. With a simple message of "Walk to Win", kids are motivated to convert activity into points that can be accumulated and redeemed at the GeoPalz website for FREE activity-based products, sports equipment & toys. In addition to the kids' activity recorded by GeoPalz, parents can track activity for the entire family on the GeoPalz website. Many 3rd-party recommended devices such as FitBit, Nike, Garmin, Polar, WiThings, DailyBurn and MapMyFitness are compatible with the GeoPalz website. Track steps, weight, height, calories burned and consumed for the whole family. Graphs allow the parents to easily see what percentile each child fits into for each category.

The first day she received it, she was running around the house trying to get more steps than me (we couldn't run outside given that we were suffering from a -30 degree day in Wisconsin- ughh). This has given her a new outlook on exercise and is making it fun for her again (after a lull of harsh Wisconsin Weather).
We recently had an issue with the pedometer. I emailed the company on a Friday and within one hour I had a response and a solution to the problem. Which only made me more pleased with the purchase of this product. We plan on creating goals ourselves for our daughter to reach to earn more intrinsic rewards at home (mommy or daddy active dates, board game time, etc.) to help keep her motivated.
I would recommend this product to anyone looking for a reasonably priced pedometer for a younger child.
Once the new unit arrived, she has worn it non-stop. It has become a daily competition to see if she can beat her previous day's steps and if she can beat my steps.
The clip that comes on it is a bit tricky to get on, but the second unit we received had an alligator type clip. It is easier to get on, but also easier to lose.
She loves that the website virtually tracks how far she has walked and plots it onto Google maps. She has a goal of walking from Texas to Illinois before next summer when she will get to visit grandparents in IL. :)
Only drawback she has complained about is the minutes earned for games do not carry over to the next day. She only logs her steps just before bed, so she rarely gets to play any of the games because the minutes earned vanish.

We have now owned four of these; 3 which are still in our possession and working. Youngest daughter was the original owner and then oldest wanted one. Youngest lost her first one on a field trip as she would not wear the included tether, so I replaced with a 3 unit. Third unit got lost at recess, so we found a used one to replace it with. Of course then the 3rd unit was returned at school. Moral of this story is "wear the tether as it does help."
Oldest daughter lost hers but wasn't as motivated by it, so I hadn't replaced it (and she hadn't taken youngest daughter's spare). Lo and behold she found hers this morning....in the dryer. The device had gone through the washer and dryer and is still working! 850 "steps" in the washer and 5431 "steps" in the dryer. :)
If the company could come up with a better way to attach it...maybe providing a wrist band or a belt loop band as an option, I would consider buying another one. It really motivated my 6-year-old to see how many steps she could get in a day. One day while she had it she did about 14,000 steps! The website is great and we were really getting into picking goals and seeing how long it would take her to "walk to Grandma's house".
If you can manage to have your kid not lose theirs, this is a great little motivator to keeps kids moving.
The rose, soccer ball, blue peace sign and smiling face all work brilliantly. My 7 year old twins LOVE these pedometers and their friends also LOVED them as birthday gifts (except the poor boy we're trying to give this tree & root design to.) Once Amazon confirms receipt of both broken ones, I will order a different design for birthday boy. I hope GeoPalz investigates this tree & root model because had I not had such wonderful experiences with four other pedometers from them, I wouldn't re-order a third time.
Also, while the clip seemed sturdy enough when placed on a shoelace, my daughter did lose hers at camp, luckily it turned up in lost and found. It would be great if they could come up with some sort of extra contraption (like a strap that could be buckled to something) for extra security.
