Spy Net Secret Mission Video Watch Review
The Spy Net Secret Mission Video Watch is a big hit with children who like gadgets and tools. It’s suitable for age 8 and over. They’ll love to use the “hidden” video camera and microphone along with the other hi tech features. They can record up to 20 minutes of video or 4 hours of audio – secretly! It will also save up to 2000 still photos just by pressing buttons on the watch.
Spy Net Secret Mission Video Watch Features
The Secret Mission Video Watch can record audio and video that kids can either play back on the watch’s screen or upload to any computer. It also takes still photos. They can also interact with Spy Net’s website, downloading video missions from Spy Net HQ and uploading their own videos. The battery is rechargeable and there’s a USB cable included.
What’s Great About The SpyNet Video Watch
Spy gear is exciting for children just as it is for adults! Kids can use it for all kinds of play and share the videos with their friends. They could even use it for serious purposes like recording any trouble they have with other kids. They can take video or voice recordings secretly with the watch. The Secret Mission Video Watch has some fantastic features and kids can use it to take photos in real time or time lapse mode, as well as recording videos. It’s easy to use and kids can transfer their photos and videos to a computer. The watch also tells the time in different time zones – so it looks like a standard watch and you don’t have to reveal everything it can do.
One of the features that kids will love is the lie detector that’s great fun to use – although the evidence wouldn’t stand up in court! It also has a built-in voice changer that kids can use to make a boy sound like an old man, or a girl sound like a boy. Children never get tired of using features like these.
Keeping in mind that it’s a toy, the quality of the video is pretty good. It’s better than the video feature on some toy cameras that could cost twice the price. But it’s the secrecy factor that kids really love!
The Spy Net Secret Mission video watch is even more fun for a group of children to play with than for one child alone. They can make up their own games, test it out on each other and have loads of fun.
What Could Be Improved
No toy is perfect, and the Secret Mission Video Watch has one or two things that we think they could improve here. The audio is not great, unless a person speaks directly to the microphone – which they’re not going to do if you’re recording them secretly.
Some kids have problems hooking it up to the computer. They may need help with that or you may have to use the reset button at the back. This shouldn’t erase any saved videos, but you do have to reset the date and time.
The recommended age range for this SpyNet Video Watch is 8 to 15. Older children in that range will easily work out how to use it but an 8 year old will probably need some help the first time.
Spy Net Secret Mission Video Watch Review Summary
The Spy Net: Secret Mission Video Watch is not perfect but it’s good value for the features that you get. An impressive product that is both fun and educational.
