You better watch out!
Here are Source Kids’ top picks of 5 smart watches we love.
1 – BIGGERFIVE FITNESS TRACKER WATCH
A budget-friendly option, but still brimming with features, this smartwatch is ideal for kids aged five to 18 years, supporting them, and their health, throughout their school years. It automatically tracks steps, heart rate and sleep.
In addition to a stopwatch function, the compact and sturdy watch can set up to 10 alarms, so you can have a different reminder for wake up, medication, study, toilet breaks, even drinking reminders. It’s waterproof, so they can keep it on 24/7, and the battery lasts up to a week.
2 – KIDSOCLOCK
Australian-owned, KIDSOCLOCK is the perfect starter watch for your kids. It allows parents complete control over the watch via the mobile app, including tracking via GPS. It even comes with geo-fencing, so you can set up a “safe zone” when kids are out to play. If your child goes outside that zone, you will be notified with a text message. It features SMS, video and voice calling as well as an SOS button, which instantly calls you.
3 – APPLE WATCH
The Apple Watch gives kids a way to stay in touch with parents, share location, and build responsibility without needing a smartphone. With limited access to the web and no social media apps, this watch can be a great starter device for kids. The family setup feature on the Apple Watch allows the entire family to benefit from the important health and safety features like Emergency SOS. While Maps, Siri, Alarms and the App Store build independence.
4 – EMBRACE2
The Embrace2 watch is a medical-quality wearable smartwatch to help detect seizures and monitor activity and sleep. It is linked to the wearer’s mobile device via Bluetooth connection. This connection allows detection of unusual events like convulsive seizures in real-time, instantly alerting caregivers, whether they’re sleeping next door or living in a different house.
