Adventure and Fun Awaits with the VTech Kidizoom® Smartwatch DX! #Review #Giveaway ~ CAN 10/14

| September 15, 2016 | 69 Comments

Just because school is back in session does not mean that the fun has to end for kids! We try to get our kids outside and going on fun adventures, whether it be on their bikes, at the park or in our own back yard. They have also been bitten by the technology bug, so they really love trying to take pictures with our cameras or hop on the Internet to play games or watch videos. VTech has put learning and adventure together into their Kidizoom® Smartwatch DX! They asked my family to review it to see if my kids would enjoy learning and exploring with this watch.

The VTech Kidizoom® Smartwatch DX is a multi-purpose gadget that kids will love using! This watch allows kids to become a young photographer or film maker while offering fun learning games to keep them entertained for hours of fun! The VTech Kidizoom® SmartwatchDX contains the following features:      

  • A splash-proof, kid-friendly design and sturdy camera, perfect for little photogs to capture stunning images.
  • Fun photo effects, frames, and filters to jazz up their images.
  • Video and voice recorder capabilities with voice-changing for fun film projects
  • A 3D clock face (in digital or analog settings) that displays over 50 of the watch’s features such as a time-telling app, a timer, an alarm, a calculator, a calendar, and more!
  • Ample internal memory able to store about 1 600 images or 23 minutes of videos
  • 3 fun activities 5 games, 3 action challenges, a motion sensor and a pedometer
  • A light-up driver button sets off fun phrases, music, and sounds
  • Access to VTech’s Learning Lodge™ for more games, watch displays, photo effects and more
  • A rechargeable battery
  • A micro USB cable for data transfer and battery charging

The big kid in me could not wait for my kids to come home from school to start to test this watch out! Once charged, I played around with changing the clock face from analog to digital. There were also so many different versions users could choose from in both formats, and they were all so cute!

Setting up the watch was really simple as well. It just took a few swipes to get the date and time set correctly. I then showed my kids how to make changes to their watch and they picked up how to do quickly.

Next stop on this watch adventure was the camera/video functions. The picture quality was better than I expected it to be. It has a 0.3 MP camera and a 160 x 120-pixel resolution. With these specifications, I was expecting a very pixely image. My kids have so much fun snapping shots, making videos and adding frames to their photos. My little guy took us on a bit of an adventure around our backyard with his sister.

The games and active activities were a BIG hit with us all! My daughter loved using the Action Challenge activities. She had a lot of fun playing Racing Run. Tic Tac Toe is another favourite game to play when she wanted to take a bit of a break from running around.

I only had two small issues/improvements I would want to see on the upgraded version of this watch. I would really love if you were able to adjust the volume while in video mode. We had to exit out of Video Mode, adjust the volume in the Settings Menu, the return back to Video Mode to hear voices louder or softer. My other issue was that there was no option for Bluetooth capabilities. It would be great to be able to transfer files from the watch to the computer easier by being able to pair the watch to the computer so the cable is not needed for this function.

Overall, VTech Kidizoom® Smartwatch DX is a new favourite toy in our home! It was easy for my kids to put on, set up and learn how to use, the photos and videos modes were simple to learn how to use and were fun to look at once captured, and the games/activities kept their brains and bodies moving while having fun! If a toy aimed at kids has me wanting one for myself, then it is one to consider for a future gift idea for kids. I know my kids (and I) will have many more hours of fun learning, playing and making memories to share with this watch!
