Kurio Watch 2.0 is an updated version of the original Kurio Watch for children and is suitable for aged six and above. Children can now enjoy this innovative product in a multitude of ways including gaming, education and social communication through the multifunctional touchscreen. It features a customisable interface, 256 MB of internal memory, a camera, new photo filters, video recorder and Bluetooth® 3.0 connectivity. It has a micro SD card slot giving users the option to add up to 32 GB of memory.
This smartwatch range comes with four different colour Watch Bands, two of which change colour through body heat, available to help make each watch unique to the user. We have received two different sets of watches for Ms C and Mr K. The Pink strap set comes with a Purple thermal strap that changes to a blue colour whilst the Blue strap set comes with a Red thermal strap that changes to an orange colour. Both of them love the thermal straps and love to watch the colours changes! The straps are made from a silicon material. They are very flexible, smooth and most importantly, they are comfortable to wear. Another couple of great things about this smartwatch is that it is splash proof and has a scratch resistant screen! You know how careless children are! These features gives you piece of mind!
In the box, it also comes with one short micro USB cable and instructions. For the first initial use, they recommend a 3 hour charge. So if you are buying one for Christmas, you might want to charge it first before wrapping it up! Also this does not comes with a charger, so you would need to charge it via a laptop or USB plug.
Setting it up is very simple. Both of them managed it without my help except for some information. When you first turn it on, you need to input your child’s name, DOB, date & time setting and I.C.E. I didn’t set up the In Case of Emergency (I.C.E.) info as I don’t know my children’s blood type and luckily they don’t have any allergies. So I just skipped this part and will add it at a later date. They are also able to customize their watch by choosing from 8 display themes and 12 watch face themes (both digital and analogue displays available) or they can even use their photo as display background.
There is not much difference between the original watch and Kurio Watch 2.0 in their preloaded apps and games, of which there are 20. These are: Snake, Tic Tac Toe, Air Music, Battleship, Motion Maze, Motion Sport, Voice Changer, Translator, Photo Retouch, Drawing, Activity Tracker, Alarm Clock, Timer, Calendar, Calculator, Reminder and Contact List. The motion sensor feature enables children to play the games simply by using their wrist movements. The only difference between the new and old watch is that the new watch have updated the colour displays on some of the apps and games.
I received this products from the company for free. However, they have not paid me for this review, and they do not exercise any editorial control over my review or anything else on this site.
