With the abundance of technology intrusion in children's lives, it is no surprise that the younger generations are leading more and more unhealthy and inactive lifestyles, with the help of such devices as the Moosh Watch, that may change for the better. Instead of taking away technology that is still beneficial on many levels, the Moosh Watch helps incorporate them into children's daily lives while encouraging outdoor play.

Designed by Martin Spurway, the Moosh Watch essentially takes the online social media experience and reintroduces it to children in their real lives. These customizable timepieces connect to each other via Bluetooth, allowing children to play together and collect online badges. By bridging the gap between outdoor and indoor play, children get the best of both worlds. Stats for Outdoor Play Timepieces Trending: Older & Average
