It is increasingly common for a child to have a mobile phone and leaving aside what is convenient or not (at this point it is best to listen to the experts), the truth is that it seems that mobile phones are no longer enough and now smartwatches are also beginning to have a place among the smallest.
For that reason and given that we are in a time when we can find ourselves with doubts about what to give if we are looking for a children’s smartwatch, we are going to review some of the models that we can find in the market. Connected watches that go beyond checking the time and that allow you to talk to the child to always have him well located.
Fitbit Ace 2
And we start with Fitbit, a brand that has passed into the hands of Google a few weeks ago and that among its catalog has the Fitbit Ace 2. One mix between activity bracelet and connected watch designed for children who are 6 years old or older.
The Fitbit Ace 2 is a youth watch, something that shows in the colors in which it is available. With a silicone strap, it is waterproof by resisting submersion for up to 50 meters. A watch that allows you to control the steps and the minutes of activity, rewarding the goals achieved with avatars. It has a battery that lasts up to 5 days on a single charge and like the rest of the brand’s models, it is controlled through the Fitbit app.

Garmin Vivofit Jr 2
Garmin is another of the well-known brands and its catalog includes the Garmin Vivofit Jr 2. A model designed for children, something that is already perceived just by looking at the aesthetics with bracelets inspired by children’s characters from comics and movies (Captain America, Frozen …).
This model, like the one we have seen before from Fitbit, is waterproof, resisting up to 5 atmospheres. But unlike the previous one, it offers a autonomy of up to one year thanks to the built-in battery. And as expected, it is capable of measuring daily physical activity offering rewards for challenges and challenges overcome. In addition, it allows you to configure alarms and adapt the type of screen to the taste of each moment.

Another of the models that we can find is the Kurio V 2.0. A connected watch with a color display and that allows interconnection with other users they are using the same model. On the screen you can receive images and read messages and as a complement it adds a camera with which to take selfies.
The Kurio 2.0 watch can be used as a music player thanks to a capacity of 256 MB that can be expanded with the use of an SD card. In addition to basic functions such as the alarm, stopwatch, calculator, and calendar, it allows parents to enter any relevant medical information and track activity. The battery lasts for one day.

Another model is this one from Vtech. The Vtech Kidizoom includes a color screen and thanks to the two cameras it incorporates, allows you to record videos or take photos.
With different games on its color screen, it allows you to follow the activity by including a pedometer to count the steps along with basic functions such as the alarm, the calendar or the calculator. What’s more includes a parental control function to limit the usage time. It is splash and sweat resistant, but cannot be submerged.

Another model is the V-Kids Watch, a model that comes from Vodafone and that we could already know at the time. Unlike other models, it features a more compact watch-type design and integrates a GPS that facilitates the location of the child.
It can work as a Walkie Talkie, allowing direct voice messages as well as text messages. It has a color screen that allows you to use some basic games and an autonomy of up to three days without having to recharge them.

I amMomo Space 4G
Another model is the SoyMomo Space 4G, a watch for children that together with GPS goes one step further integrating a SIM card that offers permanent connectivity without having to carry your mobile with you. In this way the child can make or receive calls to one of the ten contacts that can be preconfigured.
Likewise, it has ability to send or receive voice messages and thanks to GPS you can access a history of locations and hours. It incorporates a large button to make SOS alerts and make a call to the parents’ mobile in case of emergency.

This watch with the name of Save Family is the last of the alternatives on the list. As the previous, another model with an SOS button that by pressing for a few seconds, allows you to call a predefined contact. In addition, it integrates a GPS to facilitate the location of the little ones at all times.
Because it uses a microSIM card, it can function as a telephone, so the child can receive and make calls with him as well as sending voice messages. And it allows access to a 90-day history with the latest locations that the child has visited. It is splash resistant and includes a camera for taking selfies.
