What experts liked
Includes camera for photos and videos, customizable face, and alarm/timer. Kids use it to play games, but this function can be turned off during school.

The high tech Kidizoom DX smartwatch comes with an inbuilt camera hence can take pictures and videos and remote monitoring for the parent. You have a USB cable for uploading any media material of your choice.
- Paramatan
I really like the design of the Kidizoom Smartwatch and its large face. It was easy to navigate and the touch screen was very responsive.
- Toy Notes
The VTech Smartwatch Plus come with connectivity to VTech's Learning Lodge. It allows you to keep a record of all your child's VTech products and usage and download more applications for their devices.
- Tech Age Kids
What experts didn't like
Older kids might be disappointed by the low resolution of the photos and the limited offerings as compared to more sophisticated tablets and laptops.
- BestReviews
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.
- Toy Notes
The smartwatch has a low photo resolution (640 x 480 0.3MP) and so photos are grainy and small when downloaded to a computer screen.
