When I got my SmartWatch last month before heading off to a Conference, Midge immediately fell in love with it saying it was “the coolest thing ever.” I admit – it is pretty cool that a watch does so many amazing things that we used to think only computers could do! So when I had the opportunity for her to check out the New Kidizoom Smartwatch DX from VTech – I jumped at the chance. She has now decided that hers is “the coolest thing ever” and I am back up for Coolest Mom Of The Year.
The VTech Kidizoom Smartwatch DX is a smartwatch for kids with fun games and activities as well as the ability to take pictures, videos and more! The VTech Kidizoom Smartwatch DX is an even smarter watch for kids with better specs than the previous model including double the internal memory and improved image quality, plus new features such as exciting motion-activated games, eye-catching 3D clock faces and new tools to hone basic math skills. In addition to the alarm, timer and stopwatch, the Kidizoom Smartwatch DX has 2 new tools including a calendar feature and a calculator so your child can work out simple addition, subtraction, multiplication and division problems. There are more than 50 3D clock face designs to choose from and the smartwatch is splash proof for everyday play. It is also super durable – Midge has enjoyed wearing it daily ever since it arrived.
I think her favorite part is the camera – and it has been really neat every day to see what pictures she has taken that day at school. I was worried about it being a distraction, but actually the teacher thinks it is a fantastic tool, and they have all had fun figuring out their “Monster Identities” and playing other games during recess. I have also been super impressed with how long the battery lasts – even with almost constant play. There is nothing more annoying than a battery dying on a kids toy – but this one holds terrifically well, and I simply recharge it on my computer at night. We are both super happy.
