It is designed for kids ages 4 to 7. You can use it to take photos and video, that you can edit and add fun effects. It lets you change the display to more than different 50 clock face designs. It also features a voice recorder with five wacky voice-changing effects as well as being equipped with both an alarm and a timer. With typical usage the battery should last for 2-3 days or 1 day on heavy usage if the watch is turned off when not in use. This watch also comes with an alarm with a selection of tones and animations, countdown timer, stopwatch, a Parental Control to limit the amount of game time per day to either 30 minutes, 60 minutes, 90 minutes, or no time limit.
