With the continuous advancement of science and technology, electronic technology has reached new heights, leading to the emergence of increasingly sophisticated electronic products. Among them, children's smartwatches have gained significant popularity. The global children's smartwatch market has experienced substantial growth, with a value of $1,070.97 million in 2022 and an estimated projection of $3,414.81 million by 2028. However, with such a vast market, safety concerns should not be overlooked. These concerns encompass issues such as spontaneous combustion leading to burns, allergic reactions to wearing the watches, high levels of carcinogens in the watch bands, and excessive radiation emissions. To address these challenges, the authors have developed a novel children's watch design, focusing on five key factors: strap material, blue light filtering film, durability, call quality, and positioning functionality. Through an extensive two-month research phase involving offline interviews and online questionnaires, the authors have successfully validated the advantages of their product. The results indicate that 97% of children express willingness to use the product, and 92% of parents are inclined to purchase it for their children, affirming the product's potential for widespread adoption and promotion.
