Kids can find it hard to believe but often the best things come in small packages. As you know our four big kids all received a cool present when Harriet was born to give them something fun to do while we settled in as a family of seven. Initially miss 7 looked a little jealous when she spotted Juliet and her camera, Tommie and his big building set and Sybbie with her toy dinosaur. Her new VTech watch was a lot smaller in size, but then she turned it on…
At first sight the VTech Kidizoom Smart Watch (RRP $89.95, ages 5-12) looks like a colourful children’s timepiece, but it is much more than a boring clock. Aside from telling the time this cool smart watch with colour touch screen has 7 other great functions that active kids will love:
First up are some handy time related uses, like an alarm, stopwatch and timer. It helps Olivia independently tell the time during the day using the analogue/digital clock and she can set her alarm to get ready for outings or appointments. The stopwatch is a hot favourite for games and outdoor sports, backyard parcours anyone?
Another huge hit is the camera which takes photos and videos and the voice recorder. Olivia absolutely loves performing and likes recording her activities to share them with others (or enjoy them herself again) later. From singing her favourite songs to acting out a story she made up herself and even reading a book out loud, she has created quite the library of little shows. You can even add a touch of cool to photos by adding fun photo effects.
The biggest surprise however was the games mode. The Kidizoom watch has three built-in games that offer great on-the-go entertainment, an ideal sanity saver when travelling in the car or sitting in a waiting room. Play a game of spotto in Super Detective, solve the Rotating Puzzle (using your very own photos) and fight a fast-paced battle in Finger Dance, there is plenty to keep the kids busy and out of trouble. I told you, this is so much more than just a watch!
Good to know: The VTech Kidizoom Smart Watch has 128MB internal memory and is fitted with a rechargeable battery that lasts up to 2 weeks depending on how much you use it. The watch comes with a complimentary Micro USB cable for easy charging of the battery and uploading of files to your computer.
