VTech Kidizoom Smartwatch DX Review

November 28, 2015 by Ronda

I'm always a willing participant when it comes to trying something new. My son was as excited as I was (of course!) when he heard he would get to test VTech's Kidizoom Smartwatch DX. He's always running up and down in our home and outside, and I enjoy watching him be active.

So any opportunity for him to have fun, while ridding himself of some of that energy before bed time is welcomed...even when it includes technology!

With the Kidizoom Smartwatch DX, kids can take up to 1600 photos and eleven, 1 minute videos!

A VTech Kidizoom Smartwatch DX Manufacturer Details

(Age recommended 4 to 9 years old. MSRP: $64.99)

  • The VTech Kidizoom Smartwatch DX is an even smarter kids watch with more fun games and activities; interactive kids watches feature 3 fun activities, 5 games, 3 action challenges and a motion sensor

  • Kids watches are perfect for young photographers, this durable smartwatch has more memory so kids can take tons of pictures and videos; feature camera with photo effects, video camera, voice recorder with voice-changing effects and touch screen

  • In addition to the alarm, timer and stopwatch, the VTech watch has 2 new tools including a calendar feature and a calculator so your child can work out simple addition, subtraction, multiplication and division problems

  • Digital and analog kids smartwatch display comes with 50 plus clock face designs; splash proof for everyday play (splash and sweat proof; do not submerge and not suitable for showering or bathing)
  • More than just a watch, it's the VTech Kidizoom Smartwatch DX; features rechargeable Lithium Ion battery and includes micro USB cable to upload photos/videos as well as recharge the battery; intended for ages 4 to 9 years


  • Large but light.
  • It can handle normal "kid" misuse and moisture (do not soak it).
  • Battery is rechargeable.
  • Includes a really nice plastic case.
  • Holds about 1,600 photos and about 11 - 23 minutes of videos (each 1 minute long).
  • Touch screen.


  • Best suited for kids 6 (maybe) and under.
  • USB cord is short.
  • Does not come with a regular charger.
  • Rechargeable, but the battery is not replaceable (well, that certainly shortens the life time of this toy watch!).
  • Takes long to charge.

My son enjoys playing with this mainly because he likes having a camera on his wrist and the voice recorder. He thinks it's cool for his flag football games. It works better than I expected and even has more abilities than I knew of originally, like the pedometer and calendar.

The games are more suited for younger kids, but he did enjoy the Action Challenges. Which comes in handy for his football, since he's always challenging himself to run faster than he did before.

The main concern I have is battery life. As of now my son enjoys it, and I was hoping when he grows out of it I could give it to one of my nephews, but unfortunately the battery is not replaceable. Hopefully, I won't have to worry about that for a few years!
