Verizon’s Gizmo Watch 3 is an improvement over its previous kid’s smartwatch but offers no standout features from rivals, says GlobalData. Following Verizon’s announcement of its latest kid’s smartwatch iteration, Ardit Ballhysa, Technology Analyst at GlobalData, offers his view:
“The Verizon Gizmo Watch 3’s security, privacy, and connectivity features will have parents and guardians opting for it over low-end Apple or Samsung smartwatches.
“While the Apple Watch SE and Samsung Galaxy Watch4 offer a superior experience in terms of features and capabilities, they don’t offer the ability to set safe zones, set a schedule to automatically check the location of a child, control who a child communicates with, and enable auto answer to automatically answer the parent or guardians call after 10 seconds. Moreover, the Gizmo Watch 3 houses a front-facing camera that can be used for video calling, sending pictures, or sending video messages.
“However, compared to other kid’s smartwatches, the Verizon Gizmo Watch doesn’t offer any standout features that make it a clear winner for parents and guardians. For example, these security, privacy, and connectivity features are also present in the TickTalk 4 kid’s smartwatch. The Xplora X5 Play is another great alternative, but it has a major drawback compared to the Gizmo Watch 3 as it doesn’t offer video calling despite having a front-facing camera.”
