The Kurio Watch 2.0 conveniently creates entertainment for kids right on their wrist and the opportunity for parents to become free of that persistent "What time is it?" This smartwatch provides an alarm, calculator, calendar, and more for a total of 20-plus apps and games in all.
The advantage to this smartwatch is that it's a hard 'device' to lose because it is strapped onto the wrist. Kids also can send messages, emojis, and pictures using the Bluetooth feature of the Kurio smartwatch. Of course, these can only be sent to other kids who have Kurio watches or to parents who have downloaded the Kurio Watch Messenger app onto their Android device.
However, this Bluetooth feature also lets kids play shared games, such as Tic-tac-toe and Pirates, with others. Additional features to this smartwatch include an activity tracker, music and an emergency function. The scratch-resistant and splash-proof watch has a 1.54-inch display, a front-facing camera, a built-in speaker and microphone and even a micro SDHC slot that allows up to 32 GB of extra memory to be added.
Customization is another feature of this watch, allowing kids to pick their own styles when it comes to their home screen and even the color of the wrist band. In fact, the Kurio Watch 2.0 comes with two interchangeable bands. Kids also can transfer their data to a laptop or computer using the watch's micro USB plug. The watch, available for $59.99 at toyrsus.com, runs on a rechargeable lithium battery.
