KIDIZOOM ® SMARTWATCH DX FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Question 1:
I have bought a Kidizoom ® Smartwatch DX, but it will not work with my PC, my PC is looking for a driver. I have searched the internet and cannot find a VTech ® Kidizoom ® Smartwatch DX driver. What can I do?

Answer:
There is no separate driver needed for the Kidizoom ® Smartwatch DX. It uses a standard USB mass storage device driver. Such a driver comes standard on all Windows ® operating systems starting with Windows ® 2000 Service Pack 3 (including Windows ® XP, Vista and upwards) and Mac OS ® 9.0 or above. If your computer meets these OS requirements and is still looking for a driver, please contact your PC manufacturer for further assistance. For earlier operating systems that do not support mass storage, a system upgrade or mass storage device driver may be available. Again, please check with your PC manufacturer.

Question 2:
What is the ISO value (light sensitivity) of the Kidizoom ® Smartwatch DX?

Answer:
The Kidizoom ® Smartwatch DX uses an auto-ISO value. It auto adjusts the exposure time and light sensitivity depending on the lighting environment.

Question 3:
Why won’t my Kidizoom ® Smartwatch DX turn on?

Answer:
Please make sure the master power switch is on and the battery is charged.

Question 4:
Why are my pictures sometimes grainy and fuzzy? Is there anything I can do to improve the picture quality?

Answer:
In a poorly lit environment, the frame rate (shutter speed) drops to allow for a longer exposure time. The downside of this is that any movement
in the frame, or of the hand holding the camera, can result in greater blur. Furthermore, the camera sensor will soften the edges in low light to counteract the darkness by reducing the image noise. This too can sometimes result in a blurred picture. Try to improve the lighting to get better results.

Question 5:
Why are the videos grainy and fuzzy when viewing on the computer screen?

Answer:
Please check if the video player of your computer is set to display the actual resolution and scale of your videos. Viewing the videos on a enlarged screen will result in a poor display quality. Also, you can set the video resolution of Kidizoom ® Smartwatch DX to 320 X 240. The video quality of this option is better than 160 X 120.

Question 6:
Can you delete a group of pictures at one time, or do they have to be deleted one at a time on the camera?

Answer:
If you connect Kidizoom ® Smartwatch DX to your computer and access it as an external drive, you can select multiple pictures to delete at any one time.

Question 7:
If you accidentally delete the pictures by reformatting, is there any way to get them back?

Answer:
Unfortunately, if you delete the pictures by formatting the internal storage memory, there’s no way to retrieve them. There is third party software that can help recover deleted data from storage, but we do not recommend using this.

Question 8:
I am trying to transfer my pictures to my computer. I connected per the instructions (connecting the micro USB cable to the watch and computer) and the new drive appears. However, no pictures are automatically downloading. Is there something I need to do at startup to
get the pictures downloaded and saved?

Answer:
The picture transfer operation does not start by itself. After you have connected the micro USB cable to your computer and the drive appears ready, you can open the drive, look under the folder DCIM and you should find the images you captured with the Kidizoom ® Smartwatch DX. Moreover, if you wish to upload images to be viewed on Kidizoom ® Smartwatch DX, you can do so by moving the JPEG image files into the
folder DOWNLOAD/PHOTO.

Note: Do not transfer photo or video files created by other cameras to Kidizoom ® Smartwatch DX, as these file formats may not be compatible.
