Every kid wants to own the coolest, latest gadgets, but for most parents, forking over a large chunk of money for a piece of technology for their children requires some research. How much will it cost? Will my child become bored with is it easily? Will it break if my child is not the most gentle person? Luckily for parents, Vtech (who became known for their awesome kidizoom action cam for kids) launched their Vtech Kidizoom Smartwatch DX2 – a perfect gadget for kids!
The Vtech Smartwatch is great for all ages. It is targeted for kids age 4+, with kids as old as 10 still finding it engaging. This lightweight smartwatch comes in multiple colors. It has a touch screen and built-in re-rechargeable and long-lasting battery, meaning it will keep your child entertained for hours and you do not need to worry about constantly charging it. Worried about your child not being careful with their watch? This smartwatch is splash proof, so a normal splash of water from everyday play will not hurt this watch. Additionally, the Vtech DX2 comes with a dual camera. This allows your child to take both selfies and regular pictures, as well as video. Just connect your child’s watch via USB cord to your computer and you can download the images and videos and save them to your computer! The smartwatch also allows fun and simple photo effects for pictures and videos. The watch comes with an easy to use touch-screen and is loaded with a variety of games to keep your child engaged. In addition to fun games like Monster Catcher, there are educational games like Noodle Booster. Parents can choose to download additional games to the watch, as well.
In addition to the games and camera features on this smartwatch, the phone also comes with a clock, timer, and calendar feature. Not only is this appealing for children because they can choose from one of the 55 types of watch designs (or create their own!), it helps teach children about telling time. With both digital and analog features, children are able to use this smartwatch to help read and understand time. Additionally, the alarm setting helps foster a sense of independence in your child, as they are able to set their own alarms to get ready for school, start their homework, or get ready for bed! With their new smartwatch, your child will feel a sense of pride and responsibility as they begin to start telling time and planning. The calendar feature also helps kids learn about the days of the week and months of the year while providing a fun place for children to store their favorite holidays or events!

The Vtech DX2 smartwatch actually encourages children to get active! The smartwatch comes with a variety of apps such as Racing Run, Crazy Dance, and Funky Jump. These apps encourage kids to move around in order to gain points and beat fun challenges. The smartwatch also comes with a built-in pedometer so that children can track how many steps they are taking each day, which turns into a fun game and challenge, all while keeping your child active and entertained for hours!
