Verizon and Disney are celebrating the 90th anniversary of Mickey Mouse by offering a special edition of the GizmoWatch, designed for those 3 years of age to 11. Now available at Verizon, the wearable device can be purchased with one of two different Mickey Mouse-themed bands for $179.99. Each watch includes Disney activity reward screens, and Disney wallpaper.
The GizmoWatch also includes a fitness and hopscotch tracker, a voice changer and more. Kids can compete against friends to see who makes the most steps in a single day. Parents can use the GizmoHub app on their iOS or Android powered phone to find the location of their kids, see how much battery life is left on their watches, set up a to-do list, and control who they can call.
Thanks to the GizmoWatch's 4G LTE connectivity, parents can easily stay in touch with their kids via phone calls or texts. Each unit can accept calls from ten phone numbers pre-selected by mom and dad. And there are twenty pre-written text message responses that kids can send to their pre-approved contacts list. Not only can parents can know at all times where their kids are by using the GizmoHub app, they will also receive notification when their kids move outside of a certain "safety zone."
With the holiday shopping season here, this special edition GizmoWatch could make a great gift for your kids. While they will see the device as a sign of their growing independence, you'll be able to track them and know where they are at all times.
The GizmoWatch runs as long as four days between charges. With a certification rating of IPX7, the timepiece can be submerged in water to a depth of 1 meter (3.3 feet) for as long as 30 minutes, and emerge unscathed.
