GeoPalz updates pedometer, activity-tracking software

BOULDER, Colo. — GeoPalz on Tuesday instituted technical upgrades to its GeoPalz product and online activity-tracking program.

“Our main goal is to motivate kids and families to be active together, so we are proud to bolster the technical abilities of this product to more precisely and confidently track their steps," GeoPalz CEO Rich Schmelzer said.

GeoPalz evolved from 2D pendulum pedometers to version 2 3D Tri-Axis accelerometers, enhancing the technology for children and adults for easy motivation and activity monitoring. The GeoPalz V2 Tri-Axis accelerometers now feature shoe and hip location options to track 21 days of steps. They gauge MVPA (moderate to vigorous physical activity) points, and feature a built-in anti-cheat function with a unique daily alpha numeric code, internal clock and advanced calibration for accuracy. What's more, GeoPalz new improved V2 models are water-resistant.

Available in 26 designs specifically designed for children ages 5 years and older, GeoPalz motivates families to be active by converting their steps into points for redemption of free activity-based products, sports equipment and outdoor toys at the GeoPalz website. GeoPalz V2 tracks 21 days of steps and vigorous activity points. To get the whole family moving, families can register together on the site using GeoPalz and pedometers from third-party companies.

The new products are shipping nationwide at a suggested retail price of $25.
