Introducing The Kidizoom Smartwatch DX From VTech

The smart watch craze has started. It’s spread like wildfire through the adults and now it’s moving to the children as well.

Kids who love taking pictures or who just want a smart watch like mommy or daddy will love the Vtech Kidizoom smartwatch.

There are enough features to keep any kid entertained and it’s more durable than most adult smartwatches. So what exactly does the kidizoom smartwatch have to offer?

Features of the Vtech Kidizoom SmartWatch DX

There are a lot of fun features packed into a fairly small watch. If you’re already familiar with the Kidizoom line of digital cameras for children, then you’re probably familiar with most of the features included in the smartwatch. They found a way to put all of the same great features into the watch and then a little more on top of that.

That may not be the most beautiful picture resolution, but it’s more than enough for a smartwatch meant for kids. Photos themselves are captured in 640×480 resolution and video capture supports different resolution options.

There is a separate voice recorder in addition to the camera and voice recorder. Voices can be recorded and changed using the built-in voice changing features. I found this to be the most entertaining parts of the watch and I’m an adult.

There are funny camera and video effects that the kids might have more fun playing with. Spice up photos and videos with built-in photo effects, frames and filters.

There are also 3 motion sensor action and eight different learning games installed that are a lot of fun as well. It can also be connected to the Vtech Learning Lodge center if you have other Vtech devices.

And finally there are the more standard features you should expect from any smart match

  • More Memory – holds 1600 pictures
  • 3D Clock Face Designs
  • Alarm Clock
  • Calculator
  • Calendar
  • Splash and Sweat proof
  • Pedometer

What About The Design?

The watch is actually very well designed and durable.vtech smart watch features

It’s meant for children, so the designers made sure it was rugged enough to survive falls, throws, and unwanted splashes.

It’s not completely waterproof so don’t dip it in the pool, but it can survive splashes.

The battery is rechargeable and will require charging before your first use. The battery life isn’t exactly amazing, but it lasts a lot longer if the kid remembers to turn it off when they aren’t using it.

A USB charging cable is included. The same cable can be used for connecting to a PC to upload images and videos.

Very Easy To Use

That’s not at all the case with the Vtech smartwatch. The buttons are large and clear.

Most kids can easily decipher the interface of the watch, especially if they have experience with touchscreen technology.

If they can play with your phone, then they can definitely understand the watch.

    I was looking for some tech toy for my niece and I think I have just found one! She’s gonna love it!!!

    I just wonder if it comes with warranty and if I am going get one from Amazon. If anything happens to the watch, is it easy to send it back for repair, or can I send it to any watch shop?

      This smart watch is very durable. A manufacturer’s warranty can be requested from Vtech customer service. But with all the techie stuff on it, I would not use a regular watch shop. Vtech specializes in products for the younger set. This is recommended for ages 4-9 so I would expect it to last. Thanks for the comments.

    I’m sure many people will find this article as useful and interesting as I did.

    Hi Dee

    With the holidays coming up, this could be a great holiday gift for kids. With it’s built-in camera, it will get kids used to the idea of a SmartPhone or iPhone. Thank you for letting us know the best ages for this cool kiddy watch – 4 years old to 9 years old. The eight different learning games makes it sound educational too. I do have a few questions if I may:

    1. What exactly is the Vtech Learning Lodge Center? Is it the hub of the manufacturer? Can kids download more games (free or paid) to their watch, like we do with apps on our phones?

    2. As a former teacher, I would be a bit concerned if it makes noises or has any other distracting features that would make classroom learning an issue. You know how we are always asked to turn off our cell phones when in a place that requires no distractions? Are teachers going to have to ask kids to turn off their SmartWatches? LOL!

    Thank you for the review.

    Hi Dee

    This is the perfect gift for my nephew. It’s a great way to get kids ready for the tech world we live in. Especially before they acquire something like an iPhone or iPad.

    The watch is jam packed with some great features a child will certainly learn some fantastic qualities whilst having fun. Great Read.

    Kind Regards

    Hi, this is a great post. My nephew is turning 11 so unfortunately he is not within the same age bracket. Perhaps it will be a nice gift for my friends younger children. I think it is a great watch for little ones and I will definitely be back for another visit!

      Thanks for the comment. Yes, most of the items that I review cap at age 9. Kids are so clever these days. But the younger ones do enjoy the SmartWatch as well as the Action Camera. Thanks again for visiting the site!
