1. Karaforna Kids Smart Watch

Our Pick
swimming
snorkeling
diving
There are 7 games on this watch, and they’re all educational. With your little one working on them, he or she will improve their memory, cognition, critical thinking and coordination as well.

You can call your kids on it. It lets you save 10 numbers and once logged in, your kid can call you too.
 
There’s a camera function as well. And if you want, you can add an SD card to bulk up its storage. The SD card could have music. The speaker’s volume is adjustable, which is an added benefit. 

When you take a look at the watch, immediately its camera will catch your eye. Although this allows for good pictures, it makes the watch look quite unattractive.

The strap can easily be adjustable, fitting the wrists of 4-10-year-olds.
 
In terms of how you’re going to charge it, a USB port is available. 

Once fully charged, your little one can use it for a week. 

Although not waterproof, you should know that you can change that

If you’re wondering what makes it our pick: 

• It’s not that expensive
• It has many smart features
• It’s educational
• Has a great battery life
• Looks great

What makes it special:

The educational games

2. Casio F108WH'

The Most Long Lasting
swimming
snorkeling
diving
The Casio F108WH is a waterproof watch. We all know how clumsy kids are so this is perfect. It can withstand up to 165 feet  (50 m) underwater.
You can tell it’s made for the water from its appearance. The watch is a sharp blue that will catch your eye from any corner of the room. 

Its display is mineral so you can expect it to combat scruffs easily.

In terms of the band, it’s made of resin. Although this is not the most premium choice, the resin’s bounce makes it good at durability. 

Its casing is also stainless steel. This helps with durability as it’s corrosion and scratch-resistant.

With the Casio by your kid’s side, they have a functional companion. The watch offers an alarm and a stopwatch which can help them with practice questions. 

It also comes with a calendar which anyone would find useful. 

Your kid can use the watch for many years. It has a 7-year battery life so expect it to be around for a while. 

What’s more, the battery is solar powered. So, you don’t have to worry about battery leakages. 

The watch is specified as unisex

Oh, and it’s Japanese Quartz. 

What makes it special:

The battery is solar powered.

3. Timex Boys Time Machine

swimming
snorkeling
diving
Its deep blue body has pictures of neon fish on its strap. Since it’s a vision in blue, any little boy would love owning it.
If you take a look at its display, you’ll see there are green numerals. The green is very complimentary to its blue body. 

The watch is water-resistant up to 100 feet (30 m). That being said, Timex has specified that it’s not suitable for swimming. 

It has an acrylic display. The acrylic provides a matte finish which helps reduce glare. Your little one may have bad eyesight, so this would be of use.

Its casing is resin. Some people may not be a fan of this as it could make the watch feel cheap. Its fabric strap may contribute to this as well. 

Little kids can easily use the watch: 

The clock hands are labeled: One is ‘hours’, the other is ‘minutes’. This helps kids grasp the concept of time. Although great, it isn’t something to write home about. The feature is common with most analog watches for kids.

That being said, the watch fits the tiniest of hands. It can cover a wrist circumference of 6 inches. 

In terms of its movement, the watch is Quartz. 

What makes it special:

The easy to read hands

4. DC Batman Kids' Analog Watch

swimming
snorkeling
diving
The watch helps kids tell time. It comes with marked hands (similar to the Timex watch in our number 2 spot)
That’s great, but the key feature of this watch is its design. Any DC lover would be thrilled by its Batman illustration. After all, it’s the official batman watch for kids. 

Hence, DC made its unboxing experience quite special. The box the watch comes in is sleek and black, with batman’s logo embossed on it. So, if the watch were a Christmas present, your kids would love it. 

What’s more:

DC Comics ensured the watch’s safety. They have been lab tested. 

The window is made from acrylic, so no glare.

Unfortunately, Gotham’s official watch isn’t waterproof. So, your kids can’t fight crime with it underwater

It has a rubber strap and stainless steel casing. DC has noted that the strap is very adjustable, fitting most wrist sizes. 

That’s not all: 

It comes with a bezel. It reads up to 60 seconds, once again helping your kids to learn how to tell the time. 

What makes it special:

The batman design!
Your child would love this watch. Why? They can click away with its camera feature. The pictures taken can easily be edited as there are many filter options. 

This isn’t the only thing that would keep your kid entertained. The VTech comes with 8 prebuilt games. The games are from a mix of genres, so there’s bound to be something your little one would enjoy. 

Learning Lodge is the vTech equivalent of the Appstore. Here, your kids can download as many extra games as they like. 

There is a USB port that charges the watch too.

If your kid is tech-savvy, they can connect a USB to the watch and swap photos to and from it to a computer. 

Your little one may struggle telling time. Thankfully, the watch lets you switch between a digital and analog display. So, he can use the digital display if he or she finds it hard to read an analog clock. Otherwise, he could teach himself by going analog.

Although there are prebuilt clock designs, the Learning Lodge lets you download new designs.

It’s functional as it has a calendar, alarm , timer, and a recorder.

That’s not all: 

It has a calculator function which is great for math’s homework. 

What makes it special:

You can do maths on it

6. Minnie Mouse Kids' Analog Watch

swimming
snorkeling
diving
If your kid is a fan of Minnie mouse, this watch would be a favorite. It has the character plastered right in the middle and has a pretty-in-pink design.
The whole watch is pink except for the white display. You could argue that its bezel is a tone of purple. 

Disney has ensured that your kid won’t be in harm’s way with the watch. It was completely lab tested before being sold. 

The bezel is stainless steel, helping with durability. In terms of its strap, it’s rubber. This makes it easy for your kids to wrap the watch around their wrist. 

It comes with marked watch hands, helping your kids learn to tell time.

What’s more: 

The box it comes in is decorated as well, making for a great unboxing experience like the Batman watch. 

Moverover, the watch is a Japanese Quartz. 

What makes it special:

The Minnie mouse design, of course!

7. Timex Girls T79081'

swimming
snorkeling
diving
If your kid likes dressing up as an adult, this watch is perfect for them. It has a faux leather strap and comes with a white and silver display. This gives way for a very sophisticated look.
In fact, I’d wear the watch if it wasn’t meant for kids. 

The faux leather strap makes the watch quite nice to have on, making it feel premium even though the watch is one of the cheaper ones on this list. 

Its bezel being an alloy adds to the premium feel as well.

The strap can fit a wrist up to 6 inches (152 mm) if you’re wondering. 

It’s water-resistant. However, it’s only fit for a few splashes and dunks in the pool. That being said, it can withstand up to 100 feet (30m) of water if it has to. 

The Timex Girl’s display is noticeably easy to read. It has large numerals that contrast its bright white dial. 

Kids can be clumsy, so that’s why you’ll enjoy the warranty it comes with. You can get up to a year's coverage with the Timex T79081

What makes it special:

It’s quite sophisticated for a kid’s watch

8. Paw Patrol Kids' Digital Watch

swimming
snorkeling
diving
The entirety of the watch is red, showcasing illustrations of paw patrol. There is a small slit in the middle that tells the time.
If your kid has eyesight issues, they might struggle with the small display.

There’s a large illustration of Marshall the dog on its dial. Your kids would be amused by it as it takes up the whole space. What’s more, the illustration is 3D!

This is the case with the standard model. There are other models of this watch, each based on a different Paw Patrol character.

The bezel is made from plastic. Although it’s fine for kids, it makes the watch feel cheaper. The fact that its casing is plastic doesn’t help either.

The band is plastic too.

Your little one can’t have their paw patrol pals with him while he showers.

Nickelodeon has specified that the watch is not waterproof.

Safety is ensured as the manufacturer tests their watches before selling them. 

If you’re wondering, the watch is Japanese Quartz. 

What makes it special:

3D Image of your favorite paw patrol pal

9. AZLAND 3

The Most Heavy Duty
swimming
snorkeling
diving
With a camouflage design, the watch is perfect for the sportiest kids. That being said, you might find its appearance odd. The camouflage design has a vibrant blue.

You may not be a fan of this design, which is understandable. There are other design choices available.

The watch was made with water activities in mind, like snorkeling and swimming. So, its resistance isn’t just meant to safeguard it from a dip in the pool. 

That being said, the manufacturers have specifically warned you to stay away from hot/warm water. This is as the heat could cause the watch to expand. 

An alarm feature is present. As a parent, you’ll find this particularly useful as it has an alarm function for toilet training

It has relatively long battery life. You can expect the Azland 3 to last up to 3 years

The watch is pretty durable. 

It has anti-freeze capabilities, withstanding temperatures below 14 F (-10 Celsius)

Azland 3 is a gift that keeps on giving:

It’s shock resistant. It can last a 2-meter drop from above.

Other than that, the watch has a dual time feature. So if you live abroad, your little one will always know what time it is for you. The time is read in a 12/24 military style.

Depending on the alarm you set, you can add a countdown feature as well.

What makes it special:
It’s extremely durable 

10. CakCity Boys Camouflage'

snorkeling
diving
Yes, Azland 3 was a beast in terms of durability, but the CakCity does an equally great job as well.
It comes in a camouflage design. This time, it’s the design’s intended colours.

The watch was made with water activities in mind. You can take it swimming and snorkeling. This is as it can withstand up to 165 feet (50 m) underwater. 

Similar to Azland 3, you shouldn’t keep it on when you’re in warm/hot water. What’s more, it shouldn’t be around hot environments as a whole, especially where steam in.

It’s luminous. The watch has a grey display with the time in a neon blue. In the dimmest environments, it can be easy to read. This is especially the case as the display gets lit up. 

What’s cool: 

This isn’t how its display usually looks. 

The dial is normally grey with the time displayed in black. Once you click the backlight feature, it transforms into its neon version.

The CakCity is shockproof as well, so you don’t have to worry about your kid breaking it. 

The band is silicone so you know your little one will be comfy with it on. 

What’s more: 

It has the general useful features, like a calendar, alarm and stopclock.
What makes it special:

Its military design

11. Kid’s Gift Waterproof Watch

swimming
snorkeling
diving
It has a quality resin window that was made with a high-frequency machine. Because of this, it’s very hard to break.
The watch is comfortable as well. Its strap is silicone so sweat collection is at bay. 

As its name suggests, the Kid’s Gift watch is waterproof. However, you can’t take it to the pool with you. The watch was designed to withstand everyday splashes and dunks, that’s all. 

The entirety of the watch is blue. If you look close, you may be hypnotized by its design. It has dreamy clouds that contrast the deep tone of the strap. 

This is the standard model. If you’re not a fan of this look, your kid will have other designs to choose from.

What each design has in common is that its strap’s illustrations are 3D.

The manufacturers have specified that the watch is fit for a large age range.

From 3-12, all kids can enjoy it. 

Moreover, it utilizes Japanese Quartz which gives way for accurate timekeeping. 

What makes it special:

3D designs on its straps 

12. Timex Weekender Peanuts Collection

swimming
snorkeling
diving
The watch comes with a nylon strap. I’m not a fan of nylon straps as they can get stained easily. This isn’t the best thing as a kid will have it on.
The watch is easy to see in the dark. If you’re wondering how: its display is Indiglo lit. 

The display is easy to read as it’s mostly white with black numerals. In the middle of it, you’ll see a character from Peanuts. Its hands are the clock’s hands.

The watch has a classic look which is very appealing. This is due to the round display that is complimented by the brass bezel surrounding it.

It is waterproof. According to the manufacturer, it can withstand up to 100 feet (30 m) underwater. As with many watches we’ve seen so far, it’s not intended for swimming. Instead, a few splashes here and there. 

Its strap can cover up to 7.5 inches (355 mm) on a wrist if you’re wondering. 

The Timex’s window is a standard mineral. 

What makes it special:

Its Peanut design is quirky

13. No products found.

swimming
snorkeling
diving
To be honest, I’m not a fan of this model’s design. From all the watches on this list, it looks the cheapest. Of course, for a kid, this doesn’t matter.

No products found.

Its strap is a purple stitched nylon. The fact that it’s stitched is cool, but as mentioned before, nylon can be easy to stain. 

The strap is effortless for a kid to remove: it’s a hook and loop clasp. 

The watch was designed to teach kids to tell the time. It has punched out holes making time reading easier. 

Not just this: 

The watch is water-resistant. It’s noted to last up to 100 feet (30 m) underwater. Although great, this feature is shared by pretty much all the other watches on this list.

In terms of its window, it is mineral glass. 

Of course, Elsa is on it. She’s shown in the middle of the display. 

Other than that, the marked hands help with reading time, along with the punched holes. 

According to the manufacturer, all kids between the ages of 3-7 can use the watch.

What makes it special:

Punched holes to help kids read the time

No products found.

14. LEGO 8020837 Batman Watch

swimming
snorkeling
diving
Well, Batman’s back!

Your kid would love this watch as there’s an actual figurine of the hero on the watch strap.
The watch is a fun activity as you can swap pieced and build it. It’s a Lego product after all. Because of this, it can fit any wrist. 

It’s water resistant up to 165 feet (50 m). Unfortunately, Lego hasn’t specified if it’s safe to use while swimming.

Other than that, it has precise timekeeping. It utilizes a SEIKO quartz movement to ensure this.

If your kid is clumsy, you don’t have to worry about spending on a new watch. Lego offers you a 2-year warranty with your purchase. 

The model has an acrylic lens. This helps keep glare at bay and minimizes scruffs as well. 

Unfortunately, the display isn’t the easiest to read. The numbers are small and the fact that it blends into the illustration in the back isn’t good. In the end, this makes its reduction of glare pointless.

What makes it special:

The watch is a toy!

15. Cofuo Kids Digital Watch

swimming
snorkeling
diving
The watch is heavy-duty. If you didn’t know any better, you’d think it was a G-Shock.
On par with the heavy-duty feel, the watch can last up to 165 feet (50 m) underwater. Its water resistance isn’t just to combat everyday occurrences. 

You can swim and snorkel with it!

However, be careful of hot water. 

You’re also advised to not click any buttons while submerged. 

It’s noticeably comfortable. This is because it’s made from imported, high-quality resin from Germany. This makes it durable for outdoor usage. And the thick resin helps with shock resistance as well.

The watch has a dual time feature. It also has a chronograph and calendar function that tells you the date. 

If you find it hard to read the display, there is a backlight.

To adjust its setting, there are large buttons on the side that are named. So, your kid has an easy to use interface.

While on the topic of ease, the clasp was manufactured to let kids easily take it on and off

What makes it special:

Its high-quality resin

16. Marvel Kids' AVG1517

The Best Looking
swimming
snorkeling
diving
It’s pretty cool to look at. The watch is covered with many Marvel superheroes, even the screen. That’s why you can’t tell that a display is present.
Its LED is hidden behind the continuous illustration. So, you have a transparent slit that showcases the time in a sharp red tone.

There’s a designated button that turns its display on and off. So when your kid wants, he can have a great looking Marvel-themed bracelet, then a fully functional watch.

Its whole body is made from plastic, including its casing and bezel. 

Unfortunately, the watch isn’t waterproof. So, your little one would have to be very careful with it. 

Although digital, the watch has a Quartz movement. 

If you’re wondering what its dial’s window is made of, it’s plastic.

What makes it special:

The continuous marvel graphic

17. VTech PJ Masks Super Cat boy

swimming
snorkeling
diving
Who’s Batman? We don’t need him when we have Cat boy by our side. The watch’s mascot, Cat boy, helps your little one with the time and a range of other activities.
There are multiple educational games on it and most focus on refining math skills. 

If your little one has a vivid imagination, the Cat boy watch is great. He or she will have to collect pieces, adding them together to become Cat boy.

In terms of functionality, it comes with an alarm, timer, and stopwatch.
What’s strange is that there’s a cuckoo clock function as well.

Other than that, the watch is quite vivid in appearance. And there are 9 different clock faces. Each of them have different Catboy characters.

Its display comes locked up. Your little one will have to open it up to use. This can be entertaining as it can be viewed as a top-secret spy watch.

What makes it special:

The cuckoo feature

FAQ

1

What Should You Look For In A Kid’s Watch?

You might have a few questions. We’ll be covering these, starting with the essentials when looking for a watch for your little one.

Is It Durable?
Kids can be very clumsy. That’s why the best kid’s watches are made from a sturdy material. 

If you want to go all out, you should get a watch that’s shock resistant.

Is It Water Proof?
Being clumsy, your little one may drop their watch in a pool. This will be a disaster if it was expensive. That’s why you’ll need a watch that’s water-resistant

That’s why the majority of watches on this list are waterproof. Although resistant, this doesn’t mean these watches can be used in the pool. You’ll have to specifically look for watches that allow this. 

Design
Most kids’ watches aren’t unisex. They’re designed either for a boy or girl, so keep this in mind when on the hunt.

What Is It Made From?
Kids are also fussy. Because of this, their watch needs to be as comfortable as possible. 

Other than this, they may easily bruise. Their skin is tender so if it’s not comfortable, they’ll get a mark. That’s why it’s important to look for a comfortable watch. 

Hence, examine what material its strap and casing are made of. 

A Warranty
Kids are so unpredictable that even if the watch is shock-resistant, they’ll still find a way to damage it. That’s why a watch that comes with a warranty is your best bet. 

Safety
Some kid’s watches have been heavily tested. This is as the manufacturers don’t want to take any risks. 

Games
You’ll see that quite a few watches on our list have games. These games are usually educational. If you want your little one to have fun while learning something, get them a watch that has this feature.

Precautions To Take When Owning A Dive Watch

Be Wary Of Age
The manufacturer may have specified that the watch is only fit for kids who are 6+. If this is the case, do not give it to a child below this age range.

There are probably parts in it that a kid might swallow, causing a choking hazard. 

If it says the maximum age is 10, don’t get it for a 12 or 13-year-old. Their wrist is probably too big so it’ll snap the watch.

Is It Hot?
Most kid’s watches are waterproof because of how clumsy children are. To be water-resistant, the watch is sealed. 

If you live in a hot climate, there is some bad news for you. 

The heat is going to wreck your kid’s watch. It’ll bend the sealed materials, causing gaps for water to move in. 

Don’t Click Anything
Because the majority of them are waterproof, you shouldn’t click anything underwater. The buttons most likely haven’t been sealed off. So, you’re letting water in.

Conclusion

To get the perfect watch for your little one, go through our guide. It’ll help you find the best fit.

To sum up everything we’ve discussed, it’s clear that the Karaforna Kids Smart Watch is the superior pick.

Why? Well: 

• It has educational games
• It’s durable
• It looks cool 
• Has many smart features
• And best of all it’s not that expensive!
