The Octopus smartwatch for kids may not be a smartwatch like the technologically advanced Pebble 2 or the Apple Watch, but what sets it apart from these is that is been specifically designed for children aged 3 to 8 years old.
Octopus uses a unique icon based system that allows parents and teachers to help children understand certain times of the day. Watch the video below to learn more about this unique smartwatch for children which has been created by Joy.
Octopus has launched via the Kickstarter crowdfunding website and has already blasted past its $50,000 pledge goal with still 44 days remaining on its campaign. Its developers explain a little more about the concept.
Octopus is the first icon-based watch that teaches kids good habits and the concept of time.
– It’s a watch. It gives the time with icons, making it the first clock that young kids can actually read and understand. It helps children conceptually link time to events.
– It’s a scheduler for children, which helps foster responsibility, independence and self-esteem. Parents can program reminders from their smartphone that pop up on the kid’s watch.
– It’s an assistant that helps you, parents, prioritize expectations and stay consistent with daily routines. It provides tips and personal notes. It also reminds you to remind your kids! Unlike other products on the market, it’s wearable, visual and it grows with your kids.
