Remember when you were a kid and felt like you had all the time in the world? It’s difficult to teach a child how to manage their time because they don’t have a lot of responsibilities; it’s not like a nine-year-old needs to schedule dental appointments. But it’s never too early to teach your children the importance of a routine, something which is about to become infinitely easier thanks to the Octopus Kids Habit Tracking Watch.
Although a pre-teen probably doesn’t need a lot of reminders, this watch can help children remember to keep up important daily habits, like brushing their teeth and practicing a musical instrument. The watch links the time to events through 700 different icons, so young children will easily be able to understand what each event means (even if they can’t quite read yet.)
Here it is in action:
The watch is also a great emergency tool: it holds up to five lines of important information, including phone numbers, blood type, and allergies. The band is even hypoallergenic so you won’t have to worry about it irritating your child’s wrist, and it’s swappable in case the band ever gets dirty (which it will). It’s no surprise the Octopus Kids Habit Tracking Watch was a CES 2017 Innovation Awards Honoree because it simplifies one of the hardest parts of parenting.
If your kid isn’t quite ready for a pricy and fragile smartwatch, consider picking up one of these Octopus Kids Habit Tracking Watches while they’re on sale for 25% off. Get one for just $59.99 for a limited time.
