The VTech Kidizoom Smart Watch DX takes photos, shoots videos, records your voice and it has a fun feature to change your voice recordings too. It also has an alarm clock built in, and a timer.
It has an easy-to-use and fun-to-learn tutorial to teach you how to tell time.
The smartwatch has a calculator that adds, subtracts, multiplies and divides,
and it provides a calendar, with different backgrounds for the appropriate month.
There is also a nice selection of fun games too. My favorite is the Super Snowboard game, and little man likes Tic Tac Toe. It is touch screen and two players can play (at the easy or hard level), and so far he’s beaten me at it two to one (probably why it’s his favorite). ;)
My son loves all of these features, but his favorite thing right now is by far, the pedometer. He absolutely loves running around and counting how many steps or movements he has taken to get from Spot (A)to Spot (B).
His second favorite feature is the monster identity finder. That’s a little game where you put your finger on the touch screen, it scans it and it tells you what kind of monster you have been deemed. He plays that one first every time he straps on the watch.
You can plug the watch into the computer and connect to VTech’s Learning Lodge to download fun clock faces or different photo themes (some are already included so you don’t have to, but it’s really fun if you do). You can also transfer photos from the watch to your computer.
If the techie in you is wondering what this watch does, it’s actually pretty impressive for a kid’s ‘toy.’ The touch screen is 1.44”, the video resolution is a 320 x 240 pixel or a 160 x 120 pixel, the video length limit per file is 60 seconds and the focus range is 1.5 feet. The Kidizoom Smartwatch DX holds approximately 1,600 photos , and stores approximately 11 minutes at 320 x 240 pixels and approximately 23 minutes at the smaller pixel size. The file formats are standard baseline JPEG for the photos and AVI (Motion JPEG) for the videos. It uses a Micro USB 2.0 cable (included) to connect to the computer.
So...VTech, who always makes such great items for the kids has done it again! The watch is easy to use, and it’s a lot of fun. You can choose which color you like for the band (we chose blue for ours). This watch allows the kids to have a lot of high-tech features mom and dad have, without having to worry about them getting broken. It’s a win-win all the way around and absolutely the perfect gift idea for so many ages! It is recommended for ages 4+.
