If your child isn’t ready for a smartphone yet, why not start them off with a smartwatch? Jared Cotter's showing you this year's Top 3 smartwatches made for smart kids!
Ages 3 and Up
The Octopus is the first icon-based smartwatch that empowers kids by teaching and rewarding good habits. Parents set up tasks from an app on their phone, and Octopus sends reminder alerts to the kid’s watch when it’s time to complete a task. For each completed task, kids can score points, which can turn doing their chores into a fun game!

Kiddo is a health and fitness tracker made just for kids! Kiddo measures your kid’s biometrics, like heart rate and perspiration. The data links up to an app on their parent’s phone via bluetooth, so they’ll know when their child is getting sick, feeling stressed, or could do with more daily physical activity. It also comes with preloaded games and customizable top covers. The Kiddo watch is available for preorder now, and ships in Spring 2018.
