What could be better than a Tamagotchi in the palm of your hand? A Tamagotchi on your wrist, of course! Now you can proudly display your virtual pet as your parade the streets, or check in on your tiny Tama when you’re trying to tell the time, without ever feeling bad for putting the thing back in the depths of your pockets.
Launching back in 2021, the Tamagotchi Smart line was always the next sensible step in the slow evolution of Bandai Namco’s beloved virtual pets. As you would imagine, the Tamagotchi Smart watch is a step above the classic line of oval-shaped devices, improving on almost all elements of the now ageing Tamagotchi technology.
To check out all the other available virtual pets from Bandai Namco, we’ve got guides for Tamagotchi original, Tamagotchi Hello Kitty, and Tamagotchi Pix devices. Or, if you’d prefer something a little fluffier, be sure to check out our picks for the best dog games and cat games on Switch and mobile.
Tamagotchi Smart colours and designs
While there’s a few funkier designs available in Eastern markets, over here in the West we’re a little more limited with our choice of Tamagotchi Smart colours, with the decision currently between either coral pink or mint blue palettes. As ever, there’s no difference between the two devices except for the colour, so you can feel confident picking up whichever you prefer.
Tamagotchi Smart cases and screens
With the slightly higher price mark on Tamagotchi Smart compared to the other devices out of Bandai Namco, you’re going to want to take good care of your virtual pet both in-game on the streets. So, we’ve looked for all the best protective cases and screens to keep your fancy new watch in tip-top shape, and you can find them below.
Tamagotchi Smart TamaSma cards
Unlike the Tamagotchi of old, Tamagotchi Smart devices can be updated with new characters, items, wallpapers, and more by using Tamasmart cards. You can purchase these themed memory cards separately to add a certain something to your virtual pets life, whether it’s the tasty goodness of the TamaSma sweet friends card, or the vivid colours of the TamaSma rainbow friends card.
Tamagotchi Smart characters
As is the norm for the series, the Tamagotchi Smart characters are split into male and female pets, with a 50% chance of hatching either a Puchiotchi (male) or a Puchikotchi (female). From there, there’s a few different evolutionary possibilities dependent on how you treat your virtual pet, and we’ve detailed them in the tables below.
