Kids, watch this!

Dick Tracy would be envious: it’s not just a watch, it’s a camera!
With the Kidizoom Smartwatch, “young photographers can take photos and videos on the go,” VTech says.
The color touchscreen can be set with 50 clock-face designs.
There’s also a voice recorder, with “wacky voice-changing effects,” and four learning games.
VTech’s first portable camera “watch will create an entirely new play experience for kids 3 and older,” the company says.
It’s $60 here.

There are a lot of “baby cams” on the market, offering many ways to keep watch over your child when you are out of the room. One great choice was first designed as a general-purpose surveillance camera, not a parental device — and so it may deliver more features at a less boutique-y price.
The Dropcam is a $150 HD-resolution camera that sends a WiFi signal you can see and hear on your smartphone, or over the Web on a computer.
