It might seem as though everyone and their mother has a fitness tracker, but there is one group that is lacking when it probably shouldn't be: children. Yet that may soon be remedied thanks to the adidas Zone smartwatch. The sport brand is aiming to introduce this fitness tracker system into classrooms in an effort to expose children to healthier lifestyles as well as wearable technology.

Since the adidas Zone smartwatch tracks only one thing -- heart rates -- it's perfect for such basic use. Physical education teachers can use it to monitor the type of effort a student is expending in their class. The data gathered can also be used in the future for bigger analysis.
