Review/Giveaway: VTech Kidizoom® Smartwatch

Kidizoom Pink Smartwatch

We received a Kidzoom Smartwatch from VTech to play with and review. I gave it to my daughter because she is my little toy tester. The VTech product, gift card, information, and additional gift pack have been provided by VTech. Opinions are 100% my own. She was very excited when I gave her the Smartwatch and she wanted to use it right away. I certainly couldn’t blame her for that, I love technology and cool new gadgets, she’s just like her daddy in that respect. This little piece of technology records audio, video and takes photos. She can even play games change watch faces and learn how to tell time. There are also other watch options like Alarms, a Timer and a Stopwatch.

You can also connect to the VTech Learning Lodge and download additional games and other apps for the Smartwatch. I connected the Smartwatch to my computer and downloaded the Learning Lodge software, updated the firmware and downloaded new watch faces and a new game.

The VTech Kidizoom Smartwatch Takes Photos

Eva has had fun taking photos and also videos. She has always enjoyed photography and taking photos like daddy. Now she can quickly take photos from her wrist. She can also take video whenever she wants.

Kids can Play games on the Kidizoom Smartwatch

As VTech’s first camera watch for kids this Smartwatch is a nice first effort. It is full of features but a bit big and bulky for my tastes. It is enormous on my daughter’s arm. I figure that the next models will get smaller and thinner and add additional features. I’d love to see the ability to play music and have a headphone jack.

  1. It’s interesting to me that educational companies like LeapFrog and VTech are jumping on the wearables bandwagon making kid friendly devices but although they’re educational, I wonder if they’ll start showing up on kids’ wrists in school this fall, possibly being a distraction to classroom learning. If I were still teaching, it would probably drive me crazy if my students wore them to school!

  2. My favorite piece of technology…the TV! It’s been with me all my life! 🙂

  3. I love smartwatches in general because when you wear it on your wrist it almost becomes part of your body — and I don’t have to worry that I’ll accidentally leave it somewhere.

  4. Lately my favorite piece of technology has been my fitbit, or maybe my G3. My fitbit is helping me get into shape but the G3 lets me take pictures of my kids and be social media savvy so there’s that…

    This looks like fun and I know my daughter would love it!

  5. My favorite piece of technology is my iPhone 4s right now. It helps me stay connected to everything on the go.

  6. I love my phone. We have an ipad too but my phone is always charged, convenient and works, most of the time.

  7. Wow, that little smartwatch packs a lot of punch! And that seems like a great price for all it offers.

    My favorite piece of technology is my smartphone for sure. I would have loved one of these when I was your daughter’s age!

  8. My favorite piece of technology is my Galaxy Mega. It is basically a tablet that I can talk and text on lol.

  9. Fav piece of technology is the ipad, absolutely love it, what did I do before its existence?!

  10. Oh I would have to say the Ipad! We use it all the time on car trips for Carter to play some games or draw!
