WANDERWATCH: Smartwatch for Kids to Gamify Outdoors
Wanderwatch is a smartwatch for kids, designed to gamify their outdoor play. The device connects with a "magic" Bluetooth beacon, which can be used like a treasure to be found. Wanderwatch devices can connect with each other with a simple fist bump.
Parents can keep track of devices using a smartphone app and there's a built in alert button to locate your child. The device can also control connected toys like Sphero using the Bluetooth technology. It has a touch screen to let kids draw doodles and send messages to their friends.
Wanderwatch is now available on Kickstarter.
