Coolpad Dyno Review: The only kids smartwatch worth buying

Peace of mind without the worst parts of the Internet? I’ll take two.

My son has finally reached that age where not every school field trip fits into the normal school day.

Coolpad has a smartwatch for kids, and it’s pretty great

It’s a new day for Coolpad, and this watch is a positive step forward.

Lets be honest, Coolpad is not a name typically associated with quality, high end products. Their phones are cool, but they’re inexpensive on purpose and not often the first thing people recommend.
