Verizon Smartwatch For Kids – Will They Get It Right

A few months ago I wrote an article about the Verizon Smartwatch for kids and how it compares to the other watches on the market today. But, much more research has been done. All this is for the purpose of informing you. I hope this article will help you make a more informed decision about what a great product this is.

You see, most of the other watches for kids have one thing in common, namely that they are primarily fitness tracking devices. That is not the case with the Verizon Wireless Smartwatch for kids. However, all of this is for the purpose of saying that there are only such devices as the best smartwares for kids. Therefore, having spent several weeks on the project, I have to say that it has been well worth it!

An Overview

One of the features I am most impressed with is that it can connect up to two wireless phones at the same time. In addition, it also comes included with the popular headband fitness tracking system that I have personally used and found to be extremely accurate and reliable. The best smartwatches for kids feature the ability to do both the tasks of a watch while actually beeping when the phones are being used.

The thing I like best about Verizon’s smartwatches for children is that they have a great deal more to offer. For example, they feature a very small and easy to read face on screen which makes it extremely easy for a child to learn what it is all about. Also, all of the kids’ smartwatches will work with the popular Verizon smartphone and tablet devices, allowing them to use the device with the parents at the same time. These particular features alone make this line of Verizon smartwatches some of the most popular on the market today.

Verizon Smartwatch For Kids – Features And Facts

Another feature I am extremely pleased with is the fact that my son was able to set up our whole home alarm system using the device. Now, setting up an alarm system can sometimes be difficult for a kid, much less an older one like he is now. This is simply because the steps are not easily laid out in a way that a child can easily follow, as well as making it hard to program the different features. However, this feature of the Verizon Smartwatch for kids absolutely works, enabling us to set up a variety of different alerts in the home that our son could then monitor from anywhere in the house.

Something I would like to point out is that, like many other Verizon devices, the Smartwatch for kids also features a color screen. The reason I love this is because (aside from being incredibly easy to use), it also makes it extremely easy to read. I don’t think I have ever used a color screen before that also has a high contrast ratio. With the wide color display of the Verizon Smartwatch for kids, I am able to read it at maximum brightness without having to read it at lower levels. That, and the fact that there is such a crisp display makes it so much easier to navigate through the small interface than what I experienced with the Motorola Answer and Style.

One thing that I am a little concerned about with Verizon’s latest kids smartwatches is that they do not support the android platform. It is not that I do not think they are capable of developing an android mobile application themselves, I just wonder if they will take too long to figure it out. The problem I have is with the fact that the current version of android phones does not provide access to Verizon’s existing applications. As far as Google Android Market is concerned, I believe it is still largely a work in progress I cannot find any Verizon Apps available at the moment.

In The End

This means that although I am a fan of kids smartwatches, I am going to have to buy a new watch to keep up with the technology. I am going to have to get an adult smartwatch to read this feature. Although this may be a slight inconvenience to most people, to me it is important because reading the screen is extremely important.

Kids will still be able to access email, play some games and perform some instant messaging but they will not be able to access the phone’s operating system and perform the necessary tasks that are required to run the software on it. If you are buying a Verizon Watch for your child, make sure that you get one with the appropriate features. Fortunately for me, I already bought a Verizon Flex Trackless kid’s watch, and I feel more than ready to take it on my wrist now.
