Help Your Children Develop Good Habits with New Smart Watch

by ParentCo. June 27, 2016

The Octopus watch has three main functions: It serves as a watch, a scheduler, and an assistant that provides helpful tips for parents and kids. ...The earliest uses icons and illustrations to tell small children what task to complete, while the older modes teach kids how to read digital and analog clocks. Parents can choose from 600 icons to remind children of chores or inform them of upcoming events. JOY is currently accepting pre-orders for the Octopus watch on Kickstarter, where they have already exceeded their initial $50,000 goal by around $300,000.
