"This is like a good idea," Lucas, age 7, said. "Whoever made this did an amazing job."
What do today's kids think of this newfangled
thing when most of them have never even worn a wristwatch themselves? Apple Watch
In the latest "Kids React" video from new-media production duo
Benny and Rafi Fine (aka The Fine Brothers), kids ages 7-12 are introduced to the new Apple Watch for the first time.
While this episode, out Sunday, is all about a sophisticated new gadget, past episodes of the "Kids React" series have focused on old technology as kids hilariously attempt to

When handed the Apple Watch, some of the kids think it's just for counting steps, like FitBit. But a few know exactly what it is just from watching parody videos of the smartwatch.
"It kind of looks like it's from the future; future watch!" Devyn, age 11, said in the video.
The kids are dumbfounded to learn that to get most of the functions on the Apple Watch to work properly, you also need an iPhone 5 or later.
"It's kind of disappointing that you have to have a thing with you to make it work," Tyler, age 10, said in the video.
"Why do this when you can just take out your phone in a second and answer?" Jaxon, age 11, asked.
As the kids start playing with the watch, they discover features such as time, calendar, apps and games. Though not all the kids are impressed with the apps list.
"I don't see YouTube! It's worthless!" Sydney, age 7, said in the video.
When they test out the smartwatch's texting and calling options, the kids are impressed but unsure of its usefulness.
"You look like a spy just talking into your watch walking down the street," Dash, age 10, said.
"I like typing better than talking," Jayka, age 12, said.
One kid sums up her thoughts about the smartwatch, and they probably coincide with plenty of adults' opinions.
"It's cool, but I don't really need it," Samirah, age 9, said. "But I really, really want it."
