S2H Replay – The Gift to Give for Christmas

by Karl Tatgenhorst on December 15, 2010

wear it, be active, get rewards at S2H.COMI’m going to start this post with a bit of disclosure. After I got an S2H Replay, to try out for myself I decided that everyone should get these for all the kids they know and because of that, I decided to promote them as an affiliate. Now that I have that out of the way, let me tell you about this great company and this great product.

The Replay looks like a typical kids wrist watch, it is available in an assortment of sizes and colors. However, it is anything but typical. The watch has the ability to monitor activity – and this is where the magic starts. The screen has for progress bars, each representing fifteen minutes of time. As activity is detected, the progress bars fill up. I am certain that when I was a kid that mesmerizing little bit of magic would have been enough for me, but not todays kids. That’s right…. there’s more. When all four progress bars fill (one hour of activity) the face will display a 12 digit code. Here is where the modern child is caught. The code can be entered into the S2H website, where the child has a profile setup, and is worth 60 points. The maker has partnered with a variety of brands to offer gift cards and other amusements in exchange for points. Your child can earn up to $200 in gift cards a year with their Replay Watch!!

The profile they setup on the website is fairly harmless, they get a username and there is no chat function or anything like that. However, there is a “Leaderboard” like on Foursquare so the competitive nature in some of them can really be rewarded by shooting for top spots on that. Having watched my kids sit around and be “bored” I am excited and really hoping to see this make a difference. Additionally, I am hoping that the work they do to earn their Best Buy, Amazon or X-Box Live cards (and many more choices) will help give them an appreciation of the value that work places behind money.

I am telling you as an adult role model, I believe this is one of the best gifts we can give kids. I hope that S2H continues to develop similar products and that it inspires a genre of interactive/athletic toys.
