Octopus: Kids Smart Watch


Jan 03 2017

Octopus is a new watch targeted at 3 to 8 year olds and kids with special needs.

Its icon-based watch tries to empower kids by teaching them good habits and the concept of time.

Studies have shown that children under 8 years old don’t understand the concept of time, let alone remember what to do when a certain time rolls around. We have designed the first watch that helps them understand how parents expect them to use their time. We believe this will help children form good habits and help them to take responsibility for their actions.

Octopus lets parents send visual and vibration reminders from their phones to gamify chores and reinforce daily rituals like bedtime hours and when its time to brush teeth. The charger also doubles up as a nightlight.
