Youth obesity figures are higher than ever around the world, but fantastic new products like GeoPalz Pedometers aim to fight back by making even a simple activity both fun and rewarding for kids.

GeoPalz Pedometers track how many miles a child walks in a day and then allows for that data to be transmitted onto the GeoPalz website where it shows up as how far they have traveled in a virtual 'GeoPalz World.' As kids build up their miles and go further into this world, they can cash them in for activity related prizes like Frisbees and sports equipment. Furthermore, while the original GeoPalz pedometers attached to children's belts, the company has just released new models that can be fitted around their wrist or on their shoes for even greater convenience.
