Where to get it?
VTech KidiZoom Smartwatch DX2, Blue
The Kidizoom Smartwatch dx2 comes with a lot of perks that can keep kids entertained and educated all at the same time.
Easy setup and use
Setting up the smartwatch for the first time is simple. Some smartwatches have touchscreen controls that are difficult for younger users to press accurately, but the DX2 color touchscreen has large illustrative icons that young users will find easy to press.
The main screen is square-shaped, with a silicone rubber wristband that can be easily adjusted to the user’s wrist size by pulling the buckle tongue through the appropriate sizing hole. The watch screen, however, is quite large at 1.44 inches, especially for younger children.
Various clock displays
The VTech Kidizoom DX2 also has a variety of clock displays with 3D effects that kids can quickly flick through and change depending on their mood. They can also use their selfies to create custom clock faces with the Photo Clock Face Maker.
Charges with a micro-USB cable
A micro-USB cable is included in the package to charge the watch by connecting it to a computer. The micro-USB port is located on the smartwatch’s side, beneath a removable rubber cover. It takes about two hours to fully charge.
Includes dual cameras
The camera function, which allows the user to take photos of their surroundings and selfies using the included dual cameras, is one of the smartwatch’s most entertaining features. You can capture images with a resolution of 0.3MP. When compared to modern smartphones, this is a very low resolution, but it is adequate for a device that is not intended to be used as a camera. The two cameras can also record videos at 320 x 240 or 160 x 120 resolutions. Again, the resolution is low, but it will look fine when replayed on the watch screen. However, scaling these videos up for computer playback will yield poor results.
This smartwatch also serves as a learning tool. When the clock is tapped, the owl tells the time in both analog and digital modes, so an adult will need to assist a younger child in navigating the time-telling activities. A child can also listen to the clock audio by tapping on the screen.
Parental controls available
The VTech Kidizoom Smartwatch DX also includes parental controls that allow parents to disable games or set a daily time limit on the watch ranging from 15 to 90 minutes per day. When the limit is reached, the games will be unavailable until the next day. One disadvantage of parental controls is that children who can read can access them. A child could easily disable the limits set by their parents by following the on-screen instructions.
Unlike most smartwatches, the KidiZoom smartwatch works independently of a smartphone.
You can add more content
One great feature of the VTech KidiZoom Smartwatch is that you are not limited to what comes standard with the watch. By connecting the watch to your computer, you can download additional content. You can find new things to put on the smartwatch by using VTech’s Learning Lodge software. If you have accidentally deleted anything from the watch, you can replace it using this software. Because the smartwatch lacks wireless capabilities to connect to the internet or download software from the Learning Lodge on its own, you must connect it to your computer using the included Micro-USB cable.
Average battery life
This smartwatch is powered by a rechargeable, non-replaceable lithium-ion polymer battery (included in the watch). The more you use it, the sooner it will need to be recharged. In general, charging is required after two to three days of normal use. To conserve battery life, the screen automatically turns off after a short period of time.
