Wanderwatch gamifies outdoors! Re-connect your kids to outdoor play with Wanderwatch. While kids enjoy outdoor games, mud between their toes and sunshine on their foreheads, you can enjoy peace of mind. The Wanderwatch, is the world’s first outdoor gamification smartwatch for kids. It facilitates physically active and creative outdoor fun and at the same time, it allows for easy and reliable communication between kids and their parents.
Our kids are in danger of losing their connection with nature. We often hear terms like global warming and danger to describe the natural world, combined with stress and obesity to describe childhood. This comes as no surprise given that children of developed nations spend over 90 % of their time indoors. And even though there are real and valuable benefits to the technology and information that they consume, we, as parents, must create a better balance for them.
For all human history, childhood and nature have shared a deep bond. This bond benefited, childhood, by offering rich and healthy learning experiences. And it benefited nature, by ensuring our love and connection to our natural world. It was a singular mutually beneficial experience. The only option that wanderwatch can see is to gamify outdoors by enhancing the experience of playing outside with technology. The future of our planet and our kid’s health, safety and happiness depend on rediscovering the bond between nature and childhood.
