Technology is everywhere, our kids are all on tablets, phones, video games and the world of getting moving is slowing down. Being active as a society is slowing, people are doing less active activities and for me I am quite old school. I want my kids running around, playing and making messes but I also know that I need to make sure they able to keep up with the technology that our world has so they can be successful.
As a parent my job is to make sure my kids are successful in their life and when I find things that can combine my old school get moving play with the new age technology its a win win for us! Whenever I am contacted about partnering with a brand that combines the two I get excited, and I am excited about the Galactive app!
What is Galactive? It is a fitness game that will help you get the kids up and moving and while doing so they are still learning how to use technology and they are getting active, its a win win! For both parents and kids!
Your physical activity in the real world is translated into Energy Points that you use to play Games in Galactive. Playing Games then drains your Energy Points. In order to continue playing Games, you must earn more Energy Points by being active in the real world.
The app tracks when you are holding it and running or walking and gives you points. You can either wear it or put it in your pocket. The app tracks activity with the movement, the more intense your physical activity is the more energy points you get!
The kids get to have a TON of fun as they travel through the Galactive galaxy and explore all the Planets. There are multiple Levels on each Planet. Complete Levels by winning at least 10 Games. Each Game gives the player 3 chances to clear all the asteroid barriers and to collect gems while doing so. Complete all Levels on a Planet in order to unlock access to a new Planet.
During the game you have to stay active so you can keep away from the Sluggo monster, the more active you are the better off you are! Plus you want to collect gems, they are the currency with which you can buy custom skins for your character and your spaceship. You collect Gems by playing Games.
The app works with iPhone 5S, iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus running iOS 8.0 or newer. In order to track physical activity, your device must have a certain chip that is not available with older models.
