NEW from VTech :: Kidizoom® Smartwatch {Giveaway - Ends 9/9}

The VTech product, gift card, information, and additional gift pack have been provided by VTech for review purposes. All opinions are 100% my own.
This summer a hot new VTech product hit the shelves -- the Kidizoom® Smartwatch! I'd venture to say that this is going to be a top item on most Christmas lists this year for the 4 years and up age group. Finally, a smart watch just for kids!

The Kidizoom® Smartwatch comes with a lot of features. It's completely interactive so kids can capture photos, add photo effects, record videos or their voice, use it as a watch, and play built-in learning games too. This smartwatch also has a rechargeable battery, alarm clock timer, stopwatch, and parental game controls which I have yet to explore since we're strict with this device anyway. Everything is relatively easy to use, and Buddy figured out every function before me.

The screen is a 1.4 inch color touch screen, which is just perfect for small fingers. The camera can hold up to 800 photos and there are even special effects for your photos including customized photo frames, color filters and distortion effects. The photo quality is pretty decent too. For video, it can hold up to 15 minutes, although each video length limit is 1 minute per file. There are fun video frames that can be used too.

While Buddy is quite tickled with having his very own camera and video recorder, his favorite is the voice recorder. It has 5 voice changing effects so he thinks he's pretty hilarious with his random recordings. Buddy also enjoys playing with the 4 included games. with more that can be downloaded from the Learning Lodge app store online.

The Kidizoom® Smartwatch functions as a watch too, since it is a watch afterall. It even has more than 50 digital and analog clock displays to choose from! There's also a timer, stopwatch, and alarm clock with fun tones and animation. The rechargeable battery lasts for up to 2 weeks at a time, depending on the usage amount. If you allow heavy usage, it's probably only going to be a day or two.

I really like that this watch is super durable. It is splash proof and sweat proof, so if you're kiddo is allowed to wear it all the time, it's probably going to hold up just fine.

Buddy LOVES this watch. Although I can't say for sure that I think it's terribly educational, it offers some good quality fun within limits. If used and worn as just a watch, I would have no problem with Buddy wearing the Kidizoom® Smartwatch every day. But since we're talking about an electronic device with lots of functions, it's absolutely considered screen time in our house. And with any electronic device, it's important to teach your child healthy limits. Buddy is allowed about 20 minutes of usage at a time, maybe twice a day if he remembers it's an option.

The Kidizoom® Smartwatch comes in four colors, includes a micro USB cable for data transfer and battery recharging, and has an MSRP of $59.99.

I like the camera and think my youngest daughter will too. She is always picking up my phone to take pics of herself so she would enjoy this and I won't have hundreds of her selfies on my phone. I am a single dad with 5 and most likely they would all play with this. Appreciate the chance to win
