Kids these days already have access to smartphones and tablets, so why not smartwatches too, right? Now if you’d rather not spend a few hundred dollars and get your kid an Apple Watch, or maybe an Android Wear device, you might be interested in a Kickstarter project for a device called the dokiWatch.
This is a smartwatch that has been designed specifically for kids in mind and comes with features that higher-end smartwatches don’t. For starters they come in bright and fun colors, and also come with the ability for kids to customize the bands by adding various “charms”. It also sports a body made with durable TPE material, meaning that it should be able to withstand a few knocks without it breaking.
The dokiWatch also supports voice calling, location tracking, fitness tracking, and also the ability to send SOS alerts in times of emergency, parental controls, and there are games and features like the dokiPet, which is basically a virtual pet that lives in the smartwatch (you could think of it like a Tamagotchi for your wrist).
Now the dokiWatch isn’t the first smartwatch designed for kids, but it certainly looks like it is the most feature-packed. It is currently priced at $149 as a Kickstarter early bird special, and it will retail for $179 upon its release which has been scheduled for April 2016, so head on over to its Kickstarter page for the details.
