7 Potty Watches Your Toddler Will Love Wearing
At the onset of potty training, you'll need to give your child frequent bathroom breaks—both to provide vital practice and to prevent accidents. But constantly reminding your little one to pee or poop can be tedious and time-consuming. Enter potty training watches.
These devices give your child consistent reminders to use the toilet through a combination of lights and sounds. You can program them to go off at different intervals (such as every 30, 60, or 90 minutes). Potty training watches foster independence when transitioning from diapers to underwear, and they take the pressure off of moms and dads throughout the day.
Want to give one a try? Here are a few of our favorite options on the market so you can decide which potty watch is best for your child’s personality.
1. The Original Potty Watch
This product started it all! Approved for children 18 months and older, it alerts your child with colorful lights and music every 30, 60, or 90 minutes (depending on your settings), and it automatically resets afterwards. It also comes with lyrics to the three included songs. Your toddler will actually be excited when it's time to use the restroom!
2. Athena Potty Training Timer Watch—Pink Unicorns
This potty training watch has a programmable loop timer, which you can set to 30 minutes, 60 minutes, 90 minutes, 2 hours, or 3 hours. Once it goes off, flashing lights and music will remind your child to head to the bathroom. The watch is water-resistant (perfect for washing hands!) and comes with a rechargeable battery. Your child will also love the adorable pink unicorn design!
3. Athena Potty Training Timer Watch—Blue Dinosaurs
Pink unicorns aren't your child's thing? Athena also makes a blue dinosaur potty watch with the same features, like a programmable timer, flashing lights and music, and water-resistant finish.
4. Kidnovations Potty Training Watch
This potty training watch plays entertaining music at set intervals (30, 45, 60, 90, or 120 minutes)—but you can change the setting to make it vibrate instead. This feature is perfect when visiting quiet places like the library, and it’s also life-saving when a little sibling is napping. Parents love the secure silicone wrist strap, which is made without BPA or latex, as well as the water-resistant finish. Kids approve of the color options (black, blue, pink, purple) that make the perfect accessory for any outfit.
5. ABC123 Potty Training Watch
Every 30, 60, or 90 minutes, this watch plays a fun melody, which reminds your child to visit the bathroom. The band should comfortably fit your child's wrist, and it's rechargeable without batteries. Choose between a pink or blue option for your little one.
6. Potty Fun Potty Training Watch
This potty training watch puts your toddler in charge of using the bathroom. Parents simply need to set the timer to either 30, 60, or 90 minutes—and then reset it again after the eighth continuous cycle. It fits a toddler’s wrist without buckles or clips, which might dig into the skin. Plus, the bright yellow color makes it a fun addition to your tot’s wardrobe!
7. CUCUBIT Potty Training Watch
Perhaps the best feature of the CUCUBIT watch is "silent sleep mode," which automatically turns the music reminders off from 9 p.m. to 7 a.m. You don't have to worry about accidentally waking your child in the middle of the night! Other features include six timer settings (30, 45, 60, 90, 120, or 150 minutes), water resistance, and a time display.
