With more memory, functions, features and fun, the Kidizoom Smartwatch DX is even smarter than its 2014 predecessor. Gen-DXers learn to tell time with a wide variety of both analog and digital displays, to measure time with the alarm clock and stopwatch functions, and to mark time with the calendar. Time-tellers become time travelers, using the pedometer and recording their locations and experiences either still or moving. There's a motion sensor to use with action challenges, eight preloaded touch screen games, and a calculator.

Our testers applauded factors including the look and size, durability, ease of use, built in rechargeable battery, preloaded age-appropriate content, image storage and transfer, and the ability to access Vtech-vetted content. The DX rallying cry became, "Hey, Mom! It's time to play!"
