An Illinois school district is using a portion of a $15,000 grant through Fuel Up to Play 60 to purchase 60 wristbands made by Fitbit Flex that will track students' steps taken, distance traveled, minutes spent active, calories burned, hours slept and sleep quality. The effort is intended to help curb teenage obesity, and officials said students will take the wristbands home for several days and hopefully use the data to make healthier choices.
