One of the biggest crazes just before the turn of the century was a small egg-shaped toy called Tamagotchi. Bandai introduced in November 1996, by this March, the company had sold 83 million pet simulation games. The owner of Tamagotch needs to take good care of his virtual pet in order for it to grow and live long.
There are also new characters and new styles. And in many ways, the Tamagotchi Smart combines the fun and unique features of the original Tamagotchi with the speed and connectivity of a smartwatch. The device uses TamaSma cards, which are sold separately by Bandai. The cards contain exclusive items and badges that can be downloaded to the Tamagotchi Smart.
The “Speech Recognition” feature isn’t as good as you might have hoped, because it really can’t recognize words. However, a feature called “Power Up” is believed to allow owners to record conversations with pets to help them get a strong connection to them.
