The outfit behind the watch is touting the device as the first GPS smartwatch that helps kids understand responsibility, express creativity and develop a healthy independence. The feature set is quite impressive, but it is evident the wearable been designed primarily with security in mind.

Kids can dial for help at the touch of a button. With VOIP, you can have two-way conversations from anywhere in the world free of charge. Important locations like home and school can be added and the wearable can give directions when needed. Pomo Waffle also enables parents to establish a safe zone for their children, and notifies them if they stray outside of the designated area. And they can receive notifications when kids take off the watch or when it is running out of battery.

But its not all about serious stuff. The watch is packed with fun features for kids. The device is completely customisable, allowing kids to express their personalities with over 15 cartoon designs to choose from. And there are various social features so they can make friends more easily.

Finally, the watch provides parents with an easy way to create tasks and reminders for kids. It will allow you to schedule in reminders for things like “time for bed” and “play time”. The wearable can be a lot of fun but when your child needs to focus on study, this mode will ensure their focus is where it should be.

Quite simply, Pomo Waffle packs in so many features we have only touched on the surface. For more information, head over to their Kickstarter campaign. If it works as intended, the watch definitely has potential to give the more established players a run for their money.
