It’s taken exactly 32 years, but something I wanted as a child has now become a reality. You see, back in 1982 the best television program that the world will ever know made it’s premiere on NBC. David Hasselhoff, a talking Trans-am, and a whole lotta awesome rolled into living rooms on KNIGHT RIDER, the adventures of Michael Knight and K.I.T.T. inspiring generations… but it started with kids like me. Much like the science fiction of STAR WARS and STAR TREK has become reality over the years, so has that of KNIGHT RIDER. Think of how many “gadgets” K.I.T.T. had that now come standard on new cars – GPS, DVD/Blu-ray screens, games, computer-aided driving, crash protection, hands-free calling and even voice recognition. But there was one other thing from KNIGHT RIDER that I wanted, something my own imagination would have me pretending to have as I spoke to my own wrist: Michael Knight’s watch, or “comlink.” Thanks to VTech, it’s real, and they’ve partnered with THE ROCK FATHER to get one of you hooked up with the new Kidizoom Smartwatch for your kids!
Just as Knight could speak into his watch to communicate with K.I.T.T., that digital watch could also take pictures and video… something that really entered modern tech when the smartwatches came out for grownups last year. Now that VTech has released “The Smartest Watch for Kids,” it’s all come full-circle. Check out the specs…
