KD UK unveils first smart watch for kids

KD UK is bolstering its Kurio range in the form of the Kurio Watch designed for kids.

The new smart watch delivers gaming, education and social communication through a multi-functional touch screen, plus the watch boasts a customisable interface, 128MB of internal memory, a video recorder and a camera.

Kids can also send messages to their friends through texts, photos, emojis, drawings and voice, and play with the built-in games using a motion sensor feature.

“Kurio is a dedicated children’s consumer electronics brand delivering adult quality interactive experiences but on hardware and software platforms conceived with kids in mind,” said Seth Bishop, MD at KD UK.

“The Kurio Watch is the perfect addition to the range, it’s not a toy and it’s not a device for parents to track and monitor their children. It’s simply the ultimate smart watch for kids.”

Priced at £79.99, the watch is also equipped with an alarm, calendar and calculator, as well as an activity tracker, photo retouch, drawing and music player apps.

The Kurio Watch will be available from mid-July.
