When considering a present for your little ones, make sure the Fitbit Ace range is on your list. But should you wait until the Fitbit ace 4 is released?
This funky fitness tracker is designed for kids aged six and up, allowing young ones to explore the world of wearables in a safe environment. With parental controls, fun game-based features, and colorful bands, this range has all kids need to start their fitness journey.
However, the Fitbit Ace 3 has been on the market since the 13th of March 2021. Could it be time for a new Fitbit Ace 4? And if so, what can we expect from the next wearable? Keep reading to explore what we want to see on the next Ace tracker.

What Is The Fitbit Ace Range?
Before we jump into potential new features, we’ll quickly introduce this fun tracker for anyone new to the Fitbit Ace range.
Designed exclusively for children, this smartwatch is an exciting addition to Fitbit’s [product lineup. This wearable offers basic trackers and a child-friendly user experience and connects to a parental control account.
As this is a child-friendly tracker, it lacks some of the more sophisticated trackers on premium smartwatches. GPS isn’t available either.
The Fitbit Ace includes:
- Sleep monitoring
- Exercise duration
- Active minutes
- Sports modes
Unlike minimalist adult smartwatches, the Fitbit Ace offers bright colors to appeal to a younger audience. There are even Minion-themed models too!

What We Want On The Fitbit Ace 4
While the current Fitbit Ace model is packed with great tools, there are a couple of updates we’d like to see on the Fitbit Ace 4.
As the wearable is child-focused, users can’t currently add any extra apps. Of course, this is to protect children, and we agree. However, current users are calling for additional apps for the Fitbit Ace 4 model. Whether Fitbit provides a few more pre-downloaded tools or adds a safe downloading portal, we’d like to see more content in the future.
Another element we’d like to see on the Fitbit Ace 4 is more customizable content. While the main aim of the fitness tracker is to educate kids on health and fitness, unique interfaces would be a great addition.
Users can now change watch faces, but that’s about it. Perhaps extra font changes or motivating mascots could boost the experience.
The current Ace bands are colorful and attractive, yet numerous complaints exist about buckle fastening. For the Fitbit Ace 4, we’d like to see the same vivid design with a reliable closure method.
The Bottom Line
Though we have suggestions for the next model, the Fitbit Ace range is a great gift idea for your kids. Not only does it introduce them to healthy habits, but there are family challenges to help you get active together. The Fitbit Ace 4 doesn’t have a release date yet, but keep your eye peeled for the next generation of this smartwatch!
