VTech Kidizoom Smartwatch DX.
My kids are obsessed with technology. While I limit their screen time, I absolutely support and adore toys that are not only fun but, educational. Especially with all of our wearable tech that we have in this day and age, it’s no wonder that kids have their own epic tech.
You may have seen my review of the VTech Kidizoom Smart Watch not too long ago but, this new and improved watch is even smarter and even more fun! It still has some of the same features like a rechargeable battery and splash proof capability.
The VTech Kidizoom Smartwatch DX has lots of fun games and activities! It is perfect for budding photographers and it comes with more memory so kids can take tons of pictures and videos. I know that Mimi absolutely loves to take pictures and vids and when she wasn’t playing games, she was snapping away. Sometimes capturing the not-so flattering shots of yours truly.
The built-in camera comes with creative photo effects, frames and filters. The quality is pretty darn good and while it isn’t super crisp, it is perfect for little photographers to capture the world around them.
Durable but Lightweight.
Mimi is absolutely loving her new watch. She especially likes using the new motion sensor to explore three action challenges! The Smartwatch DX also includes eight games she can play using the touch screen as well as the ability to download more from Learning Lodge®.
There are plenty to choose from and they are all so much fun. We love Tic Tac Toe which is incredibly easy to play and then there is Finger Dance and Jumping Egg that are sure to keep your little one busy.
The watch helps teach kids how to tell time by letting them choose between more than fifty 3D digital and analog displays. In addition to the alarm, timer and stopwatch, two new tools include a calendar feature and a calculator so your child can work out simple addition, subtraction, multiplication and division problems.
This is a huge plus for us because she is learning basic math and she loves to practice. The alarm helps her to be responsible since she sets her alarm every morning for school and the stopwatch helps her to time her tasks.
Thin and Comfortable.
Mimi has enjoyed playing with her watch so much that she even asks me if she can play with it for a bit before she goes to bed. While she takes selfies and plays her games, she eventually falls asleep. I love that it is thin enough for her to wear comfortably and if she does fall asleep with it, it won’t hurt her arm and I can sneak in and take it off.
