GeoPalz, LLC a family-owned business, was founded in 2010 by Rich and Sheri Schmelzer and Alexandra O'Leary, the creators of Jibbitz™ - the stylish accessories for Crocs™. As parents, the creators of GeoPalz® felt it crucial to create a suite of products that encourage families to lead active lifestyles. The GeoPalz product lineup includes the GeoPalz pedometer for children ages 5 and older, and now the iBitz™ PowerKey and Unity activity trackers (in both adult and child versions) specifically designed to simplify the process of getting active with the entire family.
The GeoPalz pedometer is the first activity tracker and online game that records your child’s physical activity by tracking steps throughout the day and exchanging those steps for prizes, awards and online game time. GeoPalz has now expanded its efforts to a broader audience with the creation of the new iBitz activity tracker, an “always on,” physical activity based device and game that wirelessly syncs to your iOS BlueTooth 4.0 (BLE) smart phone or tablet (click here for devices that can be synced to the iBitz) and allows adults and children their own unique experience with personalized apps. The adult version, iBitz™ Unity tracks steps, distance, weight (manually added), height, overall physical activity, and even BMI, while the kid’s iBitz™ PowerKey app interface incorporates virtual characters called GeoBotz that a child must keep healthy with physical activity, healthy food, and plenty of water. These products are successful at engaging children because of the ability to bring the fun of gaming to physical activity!
The GeoPalz® pedometer and iBitz™ activity tracker by GeoPalz® make investing in a healthy future completely effortless, intelligent, fun, and affordable. To learn more about the GeoPalz suite of products, check out www.geopalz.com.
