(Pocket-lint) - At the end of last year, Fitbit released the child-centric Fitbit Ace. Now it seems it is aiming at even younger kids too, with an unnamed device that has leaked online.

The new Fitbit tracker is a fun, friendly, garishly-coloured device that seems to be for children around the five to eight year-old age range.

Posted by TechBuffalo, the images show a band likely to be covered in silicone and coming in either pink and green or blue and yellow.

The elongated display is monochrome and although we don't know for sure that it is OLED, as on the Ace, it seems that way. That'll get battery usage down at the very least.

Other than that details are scarce. The faces look cartoony and could hint towards games that reward activities. You can see that it will tell the time too, though.

With the silicone case and wrist band, it is likely to be fairly robust and water resistant, but we'll find out more when (if) Fitbit announces it formally.

Maybe we'll find out more during Mobile World Congress in Barcelona at the end of the month. As for price, the Fitbit Ace currently costs £80 but we suspect comes with a greater array of sensors. That might place the new tracker around the £50-£60 mark.
