VTech Kidizoom Smartwatch: so much more than just telling time

My husband and I have pretty extensive watch collections, so I wasn’t surprised when Ashlyn started asking for one for herself. Coincidently, I was contacted by a rep for VTech Canada about their Kidizoom Smartwatch and when I saw that it comes in bright pink, I knew Ashlyn would love it and I jumped at the chance to review one!

The features on the VTech Kidizoom Smartwatch are crazy! I remember when each of these features would require a separate device, not to mention a trust fund, and now they’re available in a watch that is meant for kids. The Kidizoom features include:

  • VTechKidiZoomCollageCamera with photo effects
  • Video recorder
  • Voice recorder
  • Touch screen
  • 4 learning games
  • Durable design
  • Connects with VTech’s Learning Lodge™
  • Available in blue, green, and pink
  • Splash and sweat proof
  • Rechargeable
  • Digital and analog watch displays
  • Timer and alarm clock
  • 50+ clock face designs
  • Exclusive white colour for Walmart

The watch face is nearly 2 inches square so it’s big on little kids, but it’s light and the strap is very comfortable. I like that Ashlyn can quickly switch between analog and digital time so she can learn how to read both, and she is having a blast with the camera and video features. The picture of her and her little sister below was when they found the voice-changing effects and proceeded to tape themselves singing a song and then played it back a dozen times, changing the effects and laughing their heads off!

Because of the camera and video function, I won’t be sending it to kindergarten with Ashlyn in the fall, as I don’t think she has the self-restraint to not use those functions in the classroom and that’s a distraction to everyone. The Kidizoom is going to get plenty of use this summer and on weekends during the school year though! The VTech Kidizoom Smartwatch is recommended for ages 4+ years and sells for a MSRP of $59.99 at WALMART, TOYS R US, TARGET, BEST BUY, FUTURE SHOP, SEARS, and AMAZON.CA. You can find VTech Canada on Facebook or follow @VTechCanada on Twitter.
