Would you like to get your little one a smart watch? Some parents buy them as a gift for their children, others wait for them to talk about them themselves. Neither option is wrong. However, it is definitely a good idea to wait until the child knows numbers well and is oriented in time. After he acquires these skills, it will be all the easier to teach him punctuality and the ability to use his smart watch to the full. Such a thing can do more than just show what time it is. So how do you choose the right ones for your offspring?
It started with smart watches for adults which have become very popular and you can notice them on almost most people. And even in children. The benefits of watches for children will also be appreciated by them. Thanks to children’s smart watches, your little ones will get a practical helper with which they will be able to do sports, play or communicate with family or friends. In addition, every child is sure to impress with a stylish watch that will impress their friends at school. In addition to the design, the watch offers many great features that ultimately benefit parents as well. However, there are more aspects to focus on when choosing.
One of the important points is the appearance of the watch, its dimensions and shape. Children’s wrists tend to be small, so it is good to focus on this aspect so that they fit perfectly on the child’s hand. When choosing a watch, give them the space to choose a watch that they won’t want to take off their hands. When the child sees that you respect his opinion, you will strengthen your relationship, and in addition, you will not have to worry that the watch will soon fly into the corner. For children, the color, appearance of the strap or dial is also important… these are things that usually matter a lot to them. In short, they have their own taste and feel for design, so why not give them a go.
Interesting features lead
As for the watch, it’s a good one. More precisely, the ones that offer the most interesting and useful extra features. If you want to motivate children, for example, to sports and an active life, the watch will be a great helper. For example, the LAMAX BCool children’s watch is loaded with fitness functions that measure steps, heart rate, but also other sports activities such as running, basketball or cycling. Your child will therefore have the chance to compete with his friends or compete with them. In addition, they also have four educational games that can be useful, for example, while waiting for the bus. The watch is in Czech and not even water will endanger it, which is quite handy if your child is a lover of water fun. Notifications of incoming calls or SMS messages when the mobile phone is not at hand are a matter of course.
Two-way GPS location function
For many parents, safety is one of the main reasons why they buy a smart watch for their children. They often include a GPS locator. It is therefore possible to monitor where the offspring is currently moving and possibly check if it has arrived where it was supposed to. But sometimes this function can be a bit of a detriment. Especially when the parents put pressure on the child and let him know that they control his every step. Then there is a risk that he will take the watch off his hand, hide it somewhere or put it away, and this function (and of course not only it) will lose all its meaning. That’s why some parents are anti-locators and only choose watches that can’t track their child. It is therefore better to stick to the motto “everything in moderation” and use this function only when it is really necessary.
What would be the use of a smart watch if it kept draining and could not fully fulfill its function? That’s why it’s important to look at how long their battery lasts. Some watches need to be charged every day. But others manage to last even a few days. The high-quality ones should even last up to a week without charging in continuous operation. Thanks to this, parents do not have to constantly monitor whether the watch is charged or not. But everything depends on how actively your child will use them. And you can have quite a big influence on it too. For example, if you use GPS frequently, your watch will drain faster. Either way, it’s a good idea to explain to your child that it’s important to keep an eye on the battery’s condition and charge it as well.
When there is a search for a child
Once you insert a SIM card into the smart watch, your child will be able to make a phone call and also simply read text messages from the mobile directly on the watch. Part of the functions of smart watches for children is also receiving notifications, i.e. notification that someone has tried to call the child or that he has received a text message, when he has his cell phone in a briefcase or somewhere else where he cannot see it. Therefore, he will immediately see on his watch who was looking for him and when, and he will have the chance to react immediately.
In any case, the approach of teachers and schools is related to this. This modern gadget often makes life easier for children. As far as teaching is concerned, at present most schools do not see any benefit, but neither a problem, in the use of watches during teaching. Somewhere they acknowledge their presence in the classroom. Since the opinions of teachers and school management differ, there is certainly no threat of banning them. However, how the teacher or the school will work with them depends only on them. The school rules should determine the rules. In some places, however, watches must be put out of reach just like mobile phones, or they can only be used at the request of teachers.
Thanks to the smart watch, you and your child can train punctuality and recognition of the time together with the game. Arrange to meet in a room in the house or in the garden at a specific time and reward yourself for punctuality. Think of an activity that you will do together from a specific hour and enjoy the fun. Or track how long you can keep your balance and stand on one leg on your watch. Let your imagination run wild and come up with more fun activities with your watch. Above all, set an example for your child in punctuality.
