If you want to get your child a smartwatch, these are your best options

Smartwatches are, well, a “smart” thing to have! They not only keep track of the time, but they have so many other functions as well. Some watches come equipped with GPS tracking in case your child loses it – or you lose your child – and others have cameras attached so kids can snap photos galore. Here are some of our favorite smartwatches for kids.
