It is more and more common for a child to have a cell phone and put aside what is practical and what is not (at this point it is better to listen to the experts), the truth is that it seems that cell phones are no longer enough and now smartwatches are also starting to have their place among the smallest.
For this reason and since we are in a time when we can find ourselves with doubts about what to give if we are looking for a smart watch for kids, we will review some of the models we can find in the market. Connected watches that go beyond checking the time and allow you to talk to the child to always have it correctly located.
Fitbit ace 2
And we start with Fitbit, a brand that p assed into the hands of Google a few weeks ago and which among its catalog has the Fitbit Ace 2. One mix between activity bracelet and connected watch
The Fitbit Ace 2 is a youth watch, something that shows in the colors in which it is available. With a silicone strap, it is waterproof by resisting immersion up to 50 meters. A clock that lets you control activity steps and minutes, rewarding goals achieved with avatars. It has a battery that lasts up to 5 days on a single charge and like the brand’s other models, it is controlled through the Fitbit app.

Garmin Vivofit Jr 2
Garmin is another of the well-known brands and its catalog includes the Garmin Vivofit Jr 2. A model designed for children, something that is already perceived just by looking at the aesthetics with bracelets inspired by children’s characters from comics and movies (Captain America, Frozen …).
This model, like the one we’ve seen from Fitbit before, is water resistant, resistant up to 5 atmospheres. But unlike the previous one, it offers a autonomy up to one year thanks to the integrated battery. And as expected, it is able to measure daily physical activity providing rewards for the challenges and challenges overcome. In addition, it allows alarms to be configured and the type of screen to be adapted to suit every moment.
