Great gadgets aren’t just for adults. The ReimaGO is much more than just a sensor and app, it is an adventure for the whole family, that will inspire your little ones to keep active.


Developed in partnership with Suunto, the ReimaGO sensor monitors and stores information about children’s activity. It does not measure their pulse, location or calculate how many calories they have burnt but instead measures how long the activity lasts and how intense it is. Designed to make kid’s activities even more fun, ReimaGO brings a new dimension to playing outdoors. After a day outside, you can use the ReimaGo app to see how your day’s activity looks in a virtual world. Want to find out more, see the video below.
