What is MOVband Designed by a teacher, fitness instructor and mother of three to make exercise meaningful, MOVband represents the first ever convergence of the latest accelerometer technology into a stylish and comfortable “band”.
MOVband is simple, accurate, stylish, durable and affordable. By reducing the normally cumbersome profile of the standard pedometer, and making it easy to use, MOVband offers kids of all ages an exciting and easy way to track their movement. The water-resistant MOVband not only tracks your daily steps and lifetime mileage…it even tells time.
MOVband is more than just a cool pedometer. When combined with the MOVband Challenge, the result is a fun and effective fundraising program for schools and organizations
Why MOVband Physical Education programs in schools are drastically being cut, kids are becoming more sedentary and the result is an obesity epidemic. Kids need a fun and rewarding way to be active, to enjoy movement and a healthy lifestyle. Schools and organizations must invest, or find creative fund-raising solutions to bring the wellness of our kids to the forefront. MOVband, an innovative product combined with the MOVband Challenge, is a simple and effective, movement-based fundraising program that can help.
