This Smart Watch Helps Young Children to Understand Time and Be More Independent

Say hello to Octopus – the first icon-based watch that teaches kids good habits and the concept of time. This ground-breaking watch helps children conceptually link time to events and fosters responsibility, independence and confidence too.

How does it work?

Built for children who don’t yet understand time, Octopus is intended for kids aged three to eight years old. The smart watch can be programmed with visual reminders by parents using their smartphones. From getting ready to bed to feeding the fish, parents can use their child’s smart watch to prioritise expectations.

One of the greatest things about Octopus is that it evolves with your ever-changing needs. Adjust tasks and create new ones from scratch using a simple app that syncs up in real time via Bluetooth. All the data is stored physically in the memory of the watch which helps the system to track progress.

The watch works in three modes which are adapted to different stages of childhood development. The first mode assists children in understanding time by association – the smart watch displays a large icon that is related to the task that needs to be accomplished, according to the schedule set by the parent. While the second and third modes teach children to read digital and analogue clocks.

What are the benefits?

Octopus helps to establish daily routines so children can develop good habits After all, children learn better when given clear and specific instructions. That’s why this innovative smart watch breaks down tasks step by step. For parents, it acts as a scheduler and can help to avoid power struggles. For children, it helps them to feel more autonomous and take greater responsibility for their actions. Octopus doesn’t just remind children of important tasks; it reminds parents too. But more importantly, Octopus is a tool that is fun to use and just as educational. Plus, it’s extremely useful for children with special needs (such as AD/HD, ASD, Diabetes and Down Syndrome).
