Holiday Gift Guide - MOVband and Giveaway

Are you ready to hear about my new favorite toy? It is so fun and will help you stay in shape this holiday season.

MOVABLE is looking to shrink the childhood obesity epidemic down to size by inspiring group movement. The company makes a product called the MOVband, a simple, fun and affordable wrist-worn activity monitor conceptualized by CEO Blake Squires and his wife, Michelle, a teacher, mother, and fitness advocate who set out to positively impact health and activity levels. I love their mission and their product!

The MOVband is a bracelet that tracks all movement (walking, dancing, skipping, jumping, running) and then also transforms that movement in mileage. So, it is a step up from a pedometer, and I love it! As you can see in the picture above, it has three modes, so you can see either the time, moves you made so far that day or miles you've moved.

My first question was, how does it do this? It uses a 3D accelerometer that tracks all movement – side to side, front to back, and up and down. Using the age that you enter at setup, MOVband measures your average stride to track movement and distance. So genius!

You can also get fun accessories, including 20 different colored bands!


Besides being a really fun way to keep track of and try to improve your own moves, I love that you can use MOVband to start a revolution in your own community or school. You can make a group on the website, sync your MOVband device to transfer your activity data to your online account, and start a MOVchallenge with your group with the materials they provide. Inspire others and yourself by setting group goals, milestones, and you can even establish rewards based on reaching those goals.

I just love this idea, and I love the product! Obesity is a real problem in the United States, and I think this is a fun way to motivate everyone to move a little more! Get your MOVband and one for a friend and keep the holiday pounds away! Buy them online for only $29.99!

Thanks to MOVABLE, we are giving away (1) MOVband to (1) lucky winner! Enter below!
