VTech Announces Kidizoom Smartwatch

It seems everyone is coming out with Smartwatches these days but you don’t see any really for kids, but that’s about to change as VTech has just announced the Kidizoom which they’re saying is the first smartwatch for kids and it even has a built-in camera. The watch is only priced at $60 and it has a lot of features like the camera that can do both stills and videos, but it also has games and a lot more. The watch has a 1.4” color touch screen on it and a rechargeable battery that can be charged via USB. I would love to get one of these for my eight year old son, I think he would love it. I think it’s a great watch but it’s missing some sort of location or tracking in it, something like GPS to track my child, or even Bluetooth like tethering would work. Details and pics below for you..
