Interestingly, Fitbit notes the Ace 3 “contains sensors to monitor heart rate; they’re passive and can’t be turned on.” Gadgets 360 has contacted the company and sought clarity on the reason behind the inaction. To this the company replied:
The main goal of Fitbit behind launching the Ace 3 is to make fitness fun for kids and to inspire the whole family to adopt an active lifestyle by creating healthy habits together.
From our research, we’ve found that parents prioritize the following when looking for an activity tracker for their kids: long battery life and being splash-proof, along with basic features like activity, steps, and sleep tracking. Based on our research, we decided not to enable HR on the Ace 3.
We have no plans to enable heart rate tracking, and we will only do so with parental consent if we ever enable heart rate tracking on our child’s products.
