“Our success lies in taking cues from adult tech trends and developing secure devices that support the way kids play,” said Andy Keimach, President, VTech Electronics North America. “Our Kidi Tech line features the coolest, age-appropriate tech toys.”
Following the success of its KidiZoom Smartwatch series, the best-selling smartwatch for kids for the past three years, VTech is introducing the KidiZoom Smartwatch DX3 with a new sleek, durable design, two cameras for selfies, photos and videos and an LED that doubles as a flash and flashlight. Adults can share the photos and videos at their discretion by uploading them to a computer using the included micro-USB cable, according to a press release.
The KidiZoom Smartwatch DX3 is a kid-friendly smartwatch that doesn’t compromise on innovative features like the ability to play two-player games and send preset messages to their friends just by scanning a code on their friend’s DX3 (sold separately). The watch also comes pre-loaded with tons of apps including 60+ new customizable daily activity reminders from “OK to wake” to “Time for bed” to help keep things on schedule at home and on the go, as well as eight games, motion-tracking activities and a voice recorder.
The KidiZoom PrintCam lets kids create instant black and white printouts of photos taken with this exciting new digital camera. Using cost-effective thermal paper, kids can also print games, and design and print their own greeting cards, play money, comic strips and more. There is a flip-up lens for selfies and three games to play too. Photos and videos can also be uploaded via the included USB cable.
