A prototype is a preliminary model of something. Projects that offer physical products need to show backers documentation of a working prototype. This gallery features photos, videos, and other visual documentation that will give backers a sense of what’s been accomplished so far and what’s left to do. Though the development process can vary for each project, these are the stages we typically see:
Proof of Concept
Explorations that test ideas and functionality.
Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.
Looks like the final product, but is not functional.
Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.
Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.
About this project
PLAYGOAL is the FIRST and ONLY fitness band that helps parents achieve a healthy balance between phone or tablet screen time and physical activity time.
PlayGoal works on any Android and/or Kindle device, and using our revolutionary PlayGoal Android app, locks the devices until the PlayGoal activity band reports that the child has achieved the physical goal that the parent has set for them.
PLAYGOAL HELPS YOU PRIORITIZE PHYSICAL ACTIVITY!
Now parents can practically teach discipline and enforce physical exercise before screen time (yay!). Get them off the couch, out of bed, and m-o-v-i-n-g. Get those little hearts healthy and pumping! Get them playing with their siblings and friends!
PLAYGOAL PUTS YOU IN CONTROL.
Say goodbye to the daily arguments with your children when trying to take their tablets away. The PlayGoal watch can be set to unlock the device and then will relock it once the predetermined usage time has expired.
PLAYGOAL HELPS YOU REWARD YOUR CHILD'S ACTIVITY.
You determine how much screen time is awarded for physical goals met. 1,000 steps, 50 jumping jacks, a game of tag, or playing at the park can win an hour of screen time. YOU DECIDE!
Your child becomes irritable, anxious, or sad after having their tablet or Kindle device taken away. They may have an unhealthy attachment to the device.
Your child once loved playing sports, picking on their kid brother, or climbing trees and have since lost interest in all of those activities in favor of screen time.
Your child has a huge meltdown when you attempt to take their smart devices away.
Your child prefers screen time to dessert, snacks, lunch, dinner... or candies!
Your child lies about tablet use, sneaking it into their bedroom and deceiving family members to get more screen time.
Your child always grabs their devices after a fight with a sibling, a friend, or a parent
Your child's grades may be slipping.
Your child seems detached from the world around them.
Our mission is to help parents encourage LIMITED screen time for children, in favor of physical activity.
Hello, our names are Jacob, Brittany & Tydon and we are the founders of PlayGoal - Be Active, Earn Screen Time.
Once upon a time, (Christmas 2016, specifically) we got quite generous and gifted our children with electronic tablets and phones. We were excited for all of the awesome stuff they could learn from award-winning educational apps, interactive programs, and short videos, or so we thought!
Now we found it a real issue in our home when our children spent too much time on GAMES! Ugh! Games, games, games! Two, three or even five hours a day was easily wasted and getting them to do something else was another story.
Today, we are excited to share this campaign with you, and we really hope you will support it. We think PlayGoal is an excellent tool in providing a balance of physical activity and time spent on technology.
The real gift we can give our children is the value that good health brings. Good health BEGINS with an active lifestyle. As a parent, this is your mission... and with PlayGoal, we make it easy!
THE PLAYGOAL BAND IS AN ALL-DAY ACTIVITY TRACKER
We’ve placed cutting edge technology on each band, enabling it to accurately sense your kid's active movement. We record each step, hop, skip, and jump. We record when they’re burning healthy energy, and we’ll send you a report.
THE PLAYGOAL BAND IS A SEDENTARY REMINDER
We measure the amount of time your kids are seated, or not moving. The PlayGoal band will gently buzz with a reminder on their fitness band to remind them that it's time to get up and move!
THE PLAYGOAL BAND IS A PEDOMETER (STEP COUNTER)
Even simple walking works! Get that heart rate up, and those muscles and joints moving. PlayGoal will count every step towards our healthy activity counter.
THE PLAYGOAL BAND IS AN OLED TOUCH SCREEN
Easy to use, the PlayGoal band and screen is sensitive enough for even those little fingers. Your kids will get screen prompts that tell the date, time, calories burned, distance traveled, and number of steps traveled that day.
So much more than a sporty wrist band, PlayGoal is patent-pending technology that provides parents with a user-friendly solution.
STEP 1 : Download PlayGoal from the Google Playstore and install it onto your child's Android device. Run the PlayGoal app and pair the PlayGoal band. (see video demo below)
STEP 2: Using the PlayGoal app, choose the goals and unlock time for the device. (see video demo below)
STEP 3: How to unlock the device. (see video demo below)
We are working hard with our research and development team to ensure that each PlayGoal band works perfectly with our revolutionary PlayGoal app. Our quality assurance team checks every app process and function, running the sync process multiple times and in different conditions.
This is our first hardware product launch and we are all working very hard to make it a great tool for our backers in the following ways:
1. We work closely with our manufacturing and logistics partners to ensure a seamless and speedy process.
2. We have already created alpha and beta versions of the PlayGoal bands and Android app.
3. We have tested our product repeatedly for optimal functionality, reliability, and durability. We are confident that the quality of each PlayGoal Band and PlayGoal Android App will meet your expectations.
3. We have sound customer service support in place. Should there be any issues, we welcome you to contact us and we will serve you to the very best of our ability.
While we are working hard to meet and exceed your expectations of our product, we do know there is potential for delays and miscalculations in our projections. In case of any mishap, we will do everything we can to make it right. We value your support and look forward to serving you, your family, friends and networks!
