When children begin to read and write their first words, they are ready to understand the hours and minutes shown by the hands of a clock. That usually happens around 6 years of age. Once the child understands that time is made up of hours and minutes, she will be able to wear her first watch, usually at the age of 7 or 8.
With smart watches or ‘smartwatches’ children will not only be able to practice the time and learn to organize their time, but they will also be able to be connected with their parents and call them immediately in case of emergency. We reveal some of the best options.
10 smart watches ideal for the little ones at home
1. Space 4G smart watch, by SoyMomo
SoyMomo’s Space 4G is a very complete and versatile smartphone. It has an integrated front camera that allows you to take high-resolution photos and video calls, as well as a side flashlight so that children can find their way around in dimly lit spaces. In addition, it includes a settings option that allows you to regulate the volume or adjust the brightness of the screen, while it has a step counter to motivate the little ones to practice physical activity and stay active. And so that children do not run out of their watch when they need it most, it has an extra battery life and a magnetic charging port.
However, its biggest claim is the integrated application for parents, the best value in the market. The application allows you to define up to 10 contacts with whom children can communicate at any time, either through calls or voice messages. It also allows you to know and accurately record the location of the little ones and even offers the possibility of reviewing the location history on the map, highlighting the time and the exact place where they have been. In addition, it includes a reward system that allows parents to send stars to their children to recognize their achievements and reinforce good behavior.
