VTech KidiZoom Smartwatch Tops Youth Electronics Supercategory for Third Consecutive Year Per NPD
Chicago – Today VTech announced its KidiZoom® Smartwatch has been named the #1 selling item in the Youth Electronics Supercategory by the NPD Group. Announced at the Ninth Annual Toy Industry Performance Awards for the Americas, this is the third year in a row that VTech has taken the top spot in the category. The KidiZoom Smartwatch was also the top selling toy in the individual class of Electronic Entertainment.
"As one of the first children's smartwatches, we are thrilled that our KidiZoom Smartwatch is still the gold standard for children's wearable tech," said Andy Keimach, President, VTech Electronics North America. "Just as we did with our original Smartwatch and Smartwatch DX2, we are continuing to develop revolutionary tech for kids that will keep us at the forefront of innovation and position us to remain number one in the youth electronics category."
VTech pioneered the children's wearable technology category with the KidiZoom Smartwatch. Perfect for young photographers, this durable smartwatch makes it easy to take photos and record videos on the go. Kids can use the touch screen to explore their creativity with fun photo effects, frames and filters, and choose from more than 50 digital and analog clock face designs. It also includes a timer, alarm, voice recorder and voice-changing effects, along with learning games and the ability to download more from the online Learning Lodge®. The KidiZoom Smartwatch is designed for ages 4 and up and retails for US$59.99.
