VTech Kidizoom Smartwatch Review

The VTech product, information, and additional gift pack have been provided by VTech.

My son loves taking pictures. And perhaps your kids do too. If you’re tired of having to delete hundreds of the same random photos on your smartphone or tablet — you know, like blurred photos of the ceiling, the carpet, toys, or maybe even of people in your family — then perhaps this new product from VTech can help.

VTech Kidizoom WatchWith the exciting interactive Kidizoom Smartwatch from VTech, kids can capture photos, add photo effects, record videos and play built-in games for learning fun on the go!

It has an easy-to-use 1.4’’ color touch screen and is perfect for kids learning to tell time. The Kidizoom Smartwatch features a rechargeable battery, alarm clock, timer, stopwatch, voice recorder with voice changing effects and parental game controls.

It comes in blue, pink, white and green, is splash-proof and sweat-proof, and has a kid-durable design to withstand drops and bumps.

The Kidizoom Smartwatch has more than 50 digital and analog clock displays. Here are just some of the clock displays you and your child can choose from. If you wish to download more games and watch displays, you can easily access the Learning Lodge app store.

I personally use the 2 leftmost displays

The VTech Kidizoom Smartwatch’s touch screen camera can be used for taking photos and recording videos. Kids can also add customized photo frames, color filters and distortion effects on photos they take.

Here are 3 photos I took using the VTech Kidizoom under 3 different lighting conditions. These have not been edited.

Under natural daylight

VTech Kidizoom Watch Camera 3

Moderate lighting (inside the car)

VTech Kidizoom Watch Camera 2

Relatively low light

The Kidizoom takes pretty decent photos although obviously, it’s not as great as photos you’d take using high-res cameras. But since the smartwatch is targeted towards kids, I’d say it’s good enough. It just looks like you used some sort of filter on Instagram. 🙂

All in all, I think the VTech Kidizoom Smartwatch would be an awesome gift for any kid (or kid-at heart). Not only is it a functional watch, it’s also packed with features that anyone at any age can enjoy! And it’s entertaining enough to use that perhaps your little one can forget about using your smartphone or tablet even for just a few hours!

  36. This is pretty cool! I’m impressed with the quality of the photos. Was there an age range stated? Just wondered how old they should be to use this.

  40. I enjoyed reading your review on the VTech Kidizoom Watch! I love this watch and I did try to win the contest but I didn’t! This watch is so great for the kids to teach them how to tell time, to take pictures, Etc. It’s a wonderful learning tool for the kids! I really do love it and I wanted it for my grandson who will be 4 in November! He’s a smart kid and is now starting to learn how to tell time! I know I can’t afford one because of our home situation with money. I guess I’ll have to wait until our situation gets better and my 1 year old granddaughter gets older! Thanks for the review and information! Thanks again, Michele 🙂

  41. I’ve liked Vtech since my Granddaughter was a baby and with her grown and having kids, this Vtech kidizoom watch would be great for finding the videophile in the coming generation.

  42. Wow! This IS a pretty cool little device. My Daughter told me a couple days ago that she wanted it for Christmas. She said, “Mom you can do a lot of activities and stuff on it and take pictures too!” This is a great review, I had no idea it did so much. I really like that it has parental controls too. And your absolutely right, maybe she will leave my smartphone alone, haha. I’m sorry I missed the giveaway!

  43. I’ve been seeing these around a lot lately and wondered what the fuss was about.. This is a really cool product. VTech is a great company

  44. Conflicted about technology with such young children being even connected to their bodies in the form of a watch-but I know it’s the future!

  45. I definitely need to look into this for my grandson, who loves to take pictures, but unfortunately, most times the contents turn out to be the floor. Thanks for the review.

  46. Thanks for the terrific review on the Vtech Kidizoom Watch! These watches are so awesome! The kids would love these! They can take pictures and learn how to tell time and everything! These are terrific watches for kids! I know that my kids would absolutely love them!
