Now that the older kids have settled back into school, I am realising more and more how much of a challenge our home isolation has been for miss Hattie. She was really enjoying her daily adventures with just mummy and Ted, then suddenly we were stuck at home spending our days madly trying to complete a gazillion homeschool duties for the big four. She handled all these changes like a champ and absolutely adores unicorns, so she totally deserves this amazing Kidizoom reward:
Like a good watch should the Kidizoom Smartwatch DX2 (RRP $89.95, ages 4+) helps busy kids keep track of the clock, never before was being organised and on time this cool! With more than 55 different 3D digital and analogue displays to choose from children are able to customise their clock face to suit their taste, mood and personal preferences. Other handy time elements include an alarm, timer, stopwatch and even a calendar.
So it tells the time, but what makes it smart? Think games and photos, videos and voice recordings, sound effects and selfies, a pedometer, a bunch of motion-controlled activities that will get kids up and moving and much, much more. As expected the front camera (for selfies) and side camera (to record exciting things kids spot when out and about) are getting a thorough workout in our house, and with 256MB internal memory there is plenty of room to store all the snaps.
As a mum I love that the Kidizoom Smartwatch encourages different ways of play, both on and off screen. When you’re on a long road trip, waiting at the doctor or have to sit quietly at grandma’s you can enjoy a fun on-the-spot game or brain buster. When you’ve got space to move and energy to burn you can challenge yourself in Funky Jump, Crazy Dance or Racing Run. Parents can also set a time limit to keep game time in check.
One of many educational functions of the Smartwatch DX2 is Time Master, a handy tool that teaches children to read the time using verbal cues (yay, for learning through play). Simply change the hours and minutes on the clock and then tap the owl teacher to hear your set time read out loud.
The Smartwatch DX2 features a super clear, full-colour touch screen that looks incredible and is very easy to use, so that even our young adventurer can easily control her very own smart watch. The strong, kid-tough design is durable and has been developed with active kids in mind, it is also splash proof for those little unexpected drops. Last but not least the gorgeous unicorn print watch brand is soft, flexible and adjustable in size to ensure a nice, secure fit on your child’s wrist. It’s definitely a perfect fit for our cheeky 4-year old!
Just like your kids the Smartwatch DX2 does run out of energy sometimes, but there is no need to worry about fiddly little button batteries. Simply recharge your watch with the included micro USB cable and within no time it’s good to go for more smartwatch adventures. You can use the same cable to upload your child’s photos and videos to your computer and save all the special memories for later.
The Kidizoom Smartwatch DX2 is start-ready with multiple built-in apps for play-on-the-go and you can get even more out of your watch by downloading additional content through the VTech Learning Lodge. Add some dazzling new clock faces, extra games, a real calculator or timer or maybe an awesome photo effect to spunk up your snaps, completely free of charge!
