We were recently sent a VTech Kidizoom Smart Watch DX to review. What a great gadget. This watch is fully loaded with fun games and activities which will keep little ones entertained for hours I should know it did a wonderful job of keeping my girls quiet and busy. Very appropriate for children of this day and age the watch is great for taking selfies and videos. This watch is so simple to use too which is wonderful so I didn’t need to get the children to show me how to work it!
How to Use the VTech Kidizoom Smart Watch DX
*The first thing you need to do is turn on the master switch on the back.
*Then fully charge the watch before you use the watch.
* Set the date and time first in the settings section (look for a picture of a screwdriver and spanner).
*Choose the clock face you like.
* Explore the various options on the phone. You can set the alarm, play games, take photos and make videos, find your monster identity and more.
Good to Know
The screen is a 1.44 inch, colour touch screen. You simply press the home button or swipe to move about to different features.
The watch has a 256 MB built in memory which is shared with the programme data.
Battery life really does depend on usage but if usage is heavy the watch will last for about 1 day.
The cable provided can be used to charge the camera as well as transfer files between the watch and the computer so you can save photos and videos and download more fun games.
You can chose from 12 types of activities.
Camera & Video
There is a 0.3 MP camera and the watch can hold up to 1600 photos.
The length of each video is a max of 1 minute each.
Pictures and videos can be livened up with various effects, frames and filters.
Take a look at photos and videos you have taken and delete any you no longer want.
You can record your voice for up to 60 seconds and then play around with this changing the sound of the voice.
There are 5 fun games; Jumping Eggs, Music Town, Tic-Tac-Toe, Super Snowboard and Super Boarder to keep the little ones entertained whilst they try to complete them. Don’t forget you can download more games too.
There are three great games here; Monster Identity (my girls love this and play it over and over), Silly Face Detector (great fun) and Sound Shaker.
Includes 3 activities; Racing Run, Crazy Dance and Funky Dance. These have been designed to get children moving whilst having fun.
Count how many steps you can do. My little ones compete with me and my FitBit to see if they can keep up with my step count. It’s great to encourage little ones to get moving rather than just sitting around all day.
All these features are pretty self explanatory and thankfully simple to use. The calculator can help with maths problems that contain two digit numbers. In the settings you can of course change the clock time and date shown on the watch.
Again the features here are pretty clear. The Time Master is great to help teach little ones tell the time and I plan to make full use of that function over the summer holidays.
Included in the pack is the watch with a battery, this battery can be recharged but cannot be replaced. There is a USB cable to charge the watch and a user’s manual.
My girls really loved playing with the watch and we had to practice our sharing skills!!!! This is a great watch and the girls loved it so much we may get another so they can have one each. Even if you have played all the games on the watch there are more to download so that children will never get bored of playing with it.
We were sent this super watch to review ad of course all opinions are our own.
Ps. If it wasn’t obvious already, we loved it!
