Asher is sitting in our living room, slowly opening a slick white box.
“Whoa!” he exclaims as he reveals the watch. “Is this the new Gizmo?”
My 6-year-old is no stranger to wearables. You may even know him from his test-run with LG’s previous smart band, the GizmoPal™ by LG. We’re at it again to try out their latest kids’ wearable, the GizmoGadget™ by LG, which has a bunch of new features, most notably a touchscreen and a way more grownup design.
“Let me show you how the messaging works,” I say. “If I send you a question after school, you can reply ‘Yes’ or ‘No,’ like this, right from the watch.”
“Actually, Dad,” Asher corrects me, “I can write a lot more than that.”
He scrolls down to reveal the six other custom-reply messages that I hadn’t seen, as well as the ability to send audio messages.
He’s right, of course.
