Octopus Watch Helps Keeps Kids On Schedule And On Time—no Nagging Required!

Good time management skills and the value of routine are important life lessons to instill in kids. To help parents teach these valuable lessons, the Octopus watch is an icon-based watch that aims to help teach kids good habits and the concept of time—without having to verbally nag them.

Designed for kids ages 3-8, the Octopus watch serves three major functions.

First, it works as a watch, giving kids the time with icons that represent, making it the first clock that young kids can read and understand (i.e. schedule the toothbrush icon to appear at the time your kids need to brush their teeth each morning).

It also works as a scheduler. Parents can program the watch from their smartphones with reminders that pop up— kids know it’s time to head to the school bus or feed the dog, for example.

Lastly, it serves as an assistant, giving tips and personal notes. Check out the Octopus in action in the video below:

Successfully funded on Indiegogo and Kickstarter, the Octopus watch is available for a special price through the Simplemost Shop. Originally priced at $79.99, it is available to Simplemost readers for $59.99, a 25 percent discount.

The watch band is hypoallergenic and swappable. And bonus: In case of emergency, you can store up to five lines of important information such as phone numbers, allergies and your child’s blood type.

“We received our Octopus Watch. It has already helped us re-inforce the idea of schedules and ‘things that need to get done everyday’ with our 4 year old. She loves having a watch like the big kids and adults in her life!” reads a testimonial on the product’s site.

Hey Joy

For $89.99, you can get the Companion Bundle. The Companion is a charging station for your Octopus watch as well as a nightlight and time-to-wake up light. Using the Octopus app, you can program the light to turn on or off at any time you choose.

Sounds like a great way to get your kid organized for the year ahead, doesn’t it?
