Why Smartwatches Make Great Holiday Gifts for Kids – TechBuzz by AT&T

With the holidays approaching, you might be wondering if a smartwatch might make a good holiday gift for the kid in your life. These devices only continue to get better, and with the right deals, they’re surprisingly affordable. Here are a few good reasons to consider making this purchase, as well as a few features to look out for if you do.

Communications features

Lots of smartwatches can either accept calls or connect to a smartphone that can. This can be nice for parents who want to keep better track of their kids.

Timing and alarm features

Smartwatches are of course also great for telling the time. Your child can use their device to set alarms and reminders, run a stopwatch for sports, and use the standard watch feature for keeping track of time. It may also be a good way to help your kid develop some time management skills.

Style and fashion

Kids care about what they’re wearing, and these days, there are lots of ways to accessorize smartwatches, with a huge selection of straps that kids can change up.

Health monitoring features

Especially for parents, one of the most attractive features of some smartwatches may be their ability to provide health and wellness information. These types of devices can do things like track sleep patterns or keep track of blood pressure. If your kid is a fan of sports, they might enjoy having this information as a way to track progress. Additionally, as a parent, it might be nice to have a closer look at your child’s health.
