For generations, kids have dreamed about fighting alongside Batman and bringing justice to Gotham City. Now, Bandai Namco Toys & Collectibles America is making that dream a reality with the latest edition of the Vital Hero interactive wristband.

Designed for kids ages 8 and up, the Vital Hero tracks kids’ steps and heart rate. As kids get more exercise in, Batman will become a better fighter. Then, kids can use their leveled-up Batman to fight in battles against other users. Kids can battle others directly on their device or by using an NFC device like a phone or a card reader.

If kids are looking for a challenge, they can also challenge Batman to Activity Missions, which include running, shadow boxing, situps, and walking. The more Activity Missions kids do, the more trophies they can win and the stronger their Batman is.

Kids can unlock Batman’s friends — including Wonder Woman, Robin, Superman, and more — and villains using the DC Heroes and DC Villains Memory Card Pack, an add-on that extends the gameplay even more! The Vital Hero adventures don’t end there, though. Kids can download the Vital Bracelet Arena app to compete with their friends and join worldwide tournaments with their heroes.

Vital Hero Batman is currently available for preorder on Amazon for $64.99 and the DC Heroes and DC Villains Memory Card Pack is available for $19.99. When kids are training like a superhero, staying active is hardly a chore!
