Milo comes up with an activity tracker for kids that also monitors calorie intake and offer professional tips on football tactics
PARENTS wanting to keep a close watch on their offspring’s diet and activity levels but don’t want – or can’t afford – to lay out a small fortune on an activity tracker will find exactly what they’re looking for in the Milo Champions Band.
Designed for kids between seven and 12 years old, the band works with an app from Milo that monitors activity and food intake.
Best of all, Milo Champions Band is affordable, selling for less than Bt1,000.
Milo has launched the band as part of its Champ Squad campaign, the global club for future football champs. It’s being sold as part of the Milo Champ Squad Starter Kit that includes the band and one pack of 15 packets Milo 3-in-1 instant chocolate drink.
Since, the Milo Champions app is part of the global Champ Squad campaign, the app can be used to watch video clips professional Brazilian footballer offering tips on the game by simply scanning the QR code on each Milo 3-in-1 pack.
To start using the app and the band, you must register for an account with Milo by using your email or your Facebook account. If you choose to use your email, you activate the account by clicking the link that will land in your inbox.
You then use the app to create a profile of your child by giving name, age and gender to the app. If you select an age younger or older than the 7-12 age range, the app will warn you to change. While kids outside that age group can of course wear the band, Milo stresses that the app is correlated to the nutrition values for kids within the range.
The app allows you to adjust the avatar of your child by selecting skin tone, hair colour, hairstyle, shirt style, shoes, pants, eyeglasses, wristband, and socks. After your child has progressed in activities, his or her level will increase and your child account will receive app “coins” to buy various items to jazz up his or her avatar. For example, when your child completes the daily goal of walking 13,000 steps, he or she will receive 500 coins.
