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

Additionally, as a parent, it might be nice to have a closer look at your child’s health.
