Renowned watch manufacturer Garmin has launched a new smartwatch under its kid-centric vívofit jr. range. The Garmin Vivofit jr.3, as it is called, is the third generation model in the Vivofit jr. series.
Although the smartwatch features a design that resembles a smartwatch, it lacks most of the features you will find in a regular smartwatch. However, it packs several important features that will be useful to the kids and will assist the parents to keep track of their children.
One of the important features onboard the smartwatch is named ICE, an acronym which stands for “in case of emergency”. It is a widget that allows emergency contact information to be accessed promptly. The sleek wearable also comes with timed activity modes as well as games to keep the kids occupied. However, we don’t know if there is a sort of lock to prevent the kids from accessing the games when they are supposed to be studying.
Furthermore, the Vívofit jr. 3 comes with some fitness tracking features such as daily activity tracking, sleep and steps counter, just like most other smartwatches. The phone also gets a chores and rewards mode, which can be monitored by parents.
The Garmin vívofit jr. 3 is available in multiple bold colours which are stylized as Digi Camo, Lilac Floral and Blue Stars. The smartwatch also comes with several themes such as Marvel Iron Man, Marvel Black Panther, Disney Princess and Disney The Little Mermaid. There are wallpapers reflecting these cartoon characters. All colour options adopt a retail price of US$79.99.
