VTech Kidizoom Smartwatch DX Review (How Does This One Compare?)

Smartwatches and fitness trackers have become extremely popular and are part of many people’s every day. Some of these though are inappropriate for children or are so expensive parent’s worry about cost if they get broken. There is a new need and thus, a new supply of Kid’s themed smartwatches hitting the shelves. Once of the more popular choices is the VTech Kidizoom Smartwatch DX. I had a chance to play and experiment with this one and I can see why it is so popular! It has so many different features and combines some of the best portions of smart watches and fitness trackers.

I struggled with the unboxing of the smart watch. It was in an acrylic clear box with a paper-product package bottom. Once you open the bottom of the package you find the charger and all the instruction information. But you have to pry the acrylic box apart to get to the smartwatch itself. It took a bit of muscle and the blade of the scissors to assist me in separating the two. VTech Kidizoom Smartwatch DX2

The Playtime Experience

It took my VTech Kidizoom Smartwatch DX about 2 hours on my laptop USB connection to charge. Before you set it on the charger you have to set the on/off slider into the “on” position, otherwise the screen lights up when connected but nothing really happens. Once charged and on, the smartwatch walks you through some very basic set up choosing the date, time and home screen. There is a home button along the side which will take you to the home screen when you are in any of the various applications. Applications on the watch include an onboard camera with ability to take pictures and videos. There are games including fitness games which time trial things like running and jumping. Games using the camera and a pedometer are also included. Kidizoom Smartwatch Review

Things I Didn't Like

I really liked almost everything about this smartwatch. My only complaint is with the camera placement. Since it is along the side of the watch it makes taking camera and video with it on very awkward.

Final Note

Compared to other smartwatches I have played with the VTech Kidizoom Smartwatch DX is a great choice. When compared to the Kurio the screen was much easier to navigate. I also love that so many of the applications encourage fitness and activity. I wouldn’t hesitate to purchase this one again. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=27X5D_848_Q (You may also like: Kurio Kids Smart Watch)
