Apple Watch SE is the Best All-Around Smartwatch For Kids
It was certain that it would be there list so it probably isn’t hard to figure out which watch took the top spot. The Apple Watch SE GPS plus cellular with Family Setup definitely takes the smartwatch cake. It comes with every feature you could want, and Family Setup is a great addition. parents can check their kid’s location, set up personalized activity goals, and set school-time hours where the watch’s functionality is limited.
I was apprehensive about the Apple Watch’s walkie-talkie functionality, but it turned out to be quite enjoyable. You can talk to your neighbor across the yard with just a push of a button. No need to make a call. Time to get ready for dinner. Walkie-talkie. Do you need to walk your dog? Walkie-talkie. Want to drop a quick message? “I love you”? Walkie-talkie. It’s super convenient.
The setup was easy and straightforward. The battery life is amazing and the watch is slim and sleek. I have one caveat, though: if you’re not an iPhone user, tread lightly. To facilitate testing, Apple sent us two watches and an iPhone. I’ve always been an Android User. I was open to the idea and ready to love everything about the watches (which, I did!). I didn’t like the phone. We only tested for four days, which doesn’t feel like enough time to really get used to an entirely new way of doing phone things, so we’re going to give it another shot because honestly, those watches are amazing.
Technical Specifications: There are two versions of Apple Watch SE, one with GPS only (which allows messaging and calls when paired with a nearby phone) and one with GPS and LTE cellular, which works independently through Verizon, AT&T, and T-Mobile/Sprint services. It is waterproof up to 50 meters and can store 32G. The battery can last for 18 hours.
