lol surprise Smart Watch LOL4104
About this deal
If you’re in the same position as me, and don’t really get the what LOL Surprise is all about, here’s the long and short of it (as I understand it). I don’t like it, but will the little ones find it too lousy for their tastes? They might actually not mind it as much as a full-blown adult would. I have reviewed two other smartwatches — the iTOUCH Playzoom and the Vtech Kidizoom — in this price range and I can say that the difference is noticeable.
If you are considering buying this from the USA, then great news — the pedometer measures distance in miles and the dates are written in the month-day-year format.The LOL Surprise dolls are like Kinder Surprises. For Americans where this is banned: Kinder Surprises have toys encased in a chocolate egg that you’ll have to eat through to get to the toy. Yes, the LOL Surprise smartwatch has a video camera, but it feels like a they stitched together a bunch of stills to make the video. The Kidizoom has two cameras while the iTOUCH Playzoom has one swiveling camera (that takes upside-down photos when forward-facing).
LOL Surprise are a bunch of dolls that are like collectors’ items. I see a parallel between these dolls and Funko Pop figurines in terms of design. Having only a rear-facing camera is great if your child likes to take photos of themselves, but it’s terrible if you need to take forward-facing pictures. Not only will you be blind shooting because you can’t see the screen, but you’ll also have to blind-press the shutter button.I guess the big appeal of this smartwatch is that your child will get to choose between different LOL Surprise dolls. The camera quality is OK. Any cellphone camera will blow the LOL Surprise smartwatch’s camera to smithereens. Video camera I got my first smartphone, a HTC Desire in 2011. The iTOUCH Playzoom and Vtech Kidizoom reminded me of the HTC Desire with its low-pixel-density screen. Of course, if you go up in price range to the Garmin vivofit jr. 3 and the Fitbit Ace series, you’ll get a completely different type of screen that wouldn’t be a fair comparison.
