VTech’s Kidizoom Smartwatch DX Earns Spot on TTPM Most Wanted Holiday Toys List
Chicago – Today VTech announced its Kidizoom® Smartwatch DX, the next generation of last year's award-winning Kidizoom Smartwatch, was named to the TTPM Most Wanted holiday list. The annual list designated by TTPM, the leading review site for toys, tots, pets, and more, is an independently tested and curated list of the most in-demand toys and kids lifestyle products for the holidays. The recognition for the Kidizoom Smartwatch DX continues the accolades for VTech's growing Kidizoom line, which includes one of the year's hottest toys, the Kidizoom Action Cam, and the original Kidizoom Smartwatch, which earned a spot on TTPM's 2014 Most Wanted list.
"The new Kidizoom Smartwatch DX cements VTech's position as a leader in accessible and affordable kids' tech," said Chris Byrne, EVP and content director for TTPM, aka The Toy Guy®. "With its sleek, on-trend design; rich, engaging, age-appropriate content, outstanding features and ease of use, we anticipate that this will be one of the most in-demand products for the 2015 holiday season for its target audience."
The Kidizoom Smartwatch DX offers a higher performance than the original Kidizoom Smartwatch with better specs including double the internal memory and improved image quality, combined with more new features than ever before, such as exciting motion-activated games, eye-catching 3D clock faces and new tools to hone basic math skills in a kid-friendly, durable design.
"The Kidizoom Smartwatch DX builds off the incredible response we had to our foray into the wearable technology market for kids, with our original Kidizoom Smartwatch," said William To, President, VTech Electronics North America. "Through research and development, we looked for ways to make this popular toy even more innovative and engaging for kids, and we're so honored that TTPM has again recognized our dedication to this growing category."
The Kidizoom Smartwatch DX is an even smarter watch for kids with more fun games and activities! Perfect for young photographers, this durable smartwatch has more memory so kids can take tons of pictures and videos. Kids will love using the new motion sensor to explore three action challenges! The Smartwatch DX also includes eight games kids can play using the touch screen as well as the ability to download more from Learning Lodge®. The watch helps teach kids how to tell time by letting them choose between more than fifty 3D digital and analog displays. In addition to the alarm, timer and stopwatch, two new tools include a calendar feature and a calculator so your child can work out simple addition, subtraction, multiplication and division problems. More than just a watch, it's the Kidizoom Smartwatch DX. (MSRP: US$64.99, Ages 4 years and up)
