POWERED BY PLAY
Meet Sqord, the fitness platform that makes healthy, active play more fun for kids by allowing them to compete and earn points for everyday activities.
Track Play, Not Steps - The Sqord Activity Pod isn’t merely a step-counter. It tracks all sorts of movement and converts it into points that connect to Awards inside the free kidSAFE-certified App.
The Sqord Pod can take a beating and keep on tracking. Also activities worth tracking don’t just occur on land! Those water balloon fights or pool sessions can translate into big points inside the Sqord App! The Sqord Pod uses a standard watch battery designed to last 9 months+! No need to charge. Replacing the battery is easy and inexpensive.
Unlike other activity and fitness trackers in the market, Sqord really works!!! 3rd Evaluation by Group Health, a Seattle based large nonprofit healthcare system, showed 55% increase in activity level amongst inactive 5th graders. All this at a fraction of a cost of other fitness bands.
