What to consider when buying

The choice of chil­dren’s smart watch­es is a respon­si­ble task. Par­ents want to buy a qual­i­ty gad­get, but often do not know what to look for. There are sev­er­al selec­tion cri­te­ria:

  • Dimen­sions. Watch­es for a child should not be bulky and uncom­fort­able. Too big a device can inter­fere dur­ing active games.
  • Func­tion­al­i­ty. The watch must be appro­pri­ate for the age of the child. If he is 10–12 years old, he is unlike­ly to be inter­est­ed in a mod­el for kids 5–7 years old with count­ing games or learn­ing let­ters.
  • Mois­ture pro­tec­tion. It is bet­ter that the watch is water­proof. A child can acci­den­tal­ly wet them while wash­ing their hands, and the gad­get will break.
  • Geolo­ca­tion. Not all mod­els of chil­dren’s smart­watch­es have a loca­tion track­er. It is bet­ter to choose a device that sup­ports GPS or anoth­er sim­i­lar sys­tem.
  • Dis­play. Give pref­er­ence to smart watch­es with a col­or touch screen. There are also the most bud­get mod­els with mono­chrome screens and push-but­ton con­trols on sale, but they are con­sid­ered out­dat­ed and are unlike­ly to inter­est a child.
