Garmin has teamed up with Disney again for another version of its Vivofit jr 2 fitness tracker for kids, and this time it's all about the wannabe Ariels and Jasmines.

There's now two new Disney Princess themed designs joining the Star Wars, Minnie Mouse and Marvel Avengers versions already available. It's still aimed at ages 4 and above and features a waterproof design (up to 50 water metres depth), a color screen and one-year battery life.

You also still get the same activity tracking features including automatic sleep monitoring. That Move Bar is there too to display periods of inactivity, and it'll store four weeks of data if you forget to sync it to the companion app.

Racking up steps and doing chores unlocks virtual gems to earn rewards. You can also set reminders from the app to remember to brush those teeth before bed or do those weekly chores. Staying active and meeting activity goals will also help little users progress through a Disney Princess story that is viewable on the app.

If parents want to help provide a motivational push, Garmin's Toe-to-Toe challenge lets kids take on you and other Vivofit jr 2 users in timed step challenges. You'll need to download the dedicated Connect IQ app to a compatible device to get in on the tracking action though.

The new Disney Princess Vivofit jr 2 range is available to buy now from the likes of Best Buy and Target for $79.99. If you don't want to be a princess all of the time, you can purchase optional themed bands for $29.99.
