Today’s little ones have grown up surrounded by computers, tablets, Youtube… Technology has always been a part of their every-day life – quite different from just 10 or 20 years ago. But while smartwatches are a hot selling item for adults, we are not exactly spoiled for choice when it comes to smartwatches for kids.

Primarily intended for the UK market, the WatchPhone is a hybrid between a smartphone and a wrist watch. The company says their device is the first 3G network of its kind. The watch is compatible with all UK networks using a micro sim, and supports two way communication with any iOS or Android smartphone through voice calls, text messages and emoticons.

The large 1.54″ high-resolution, 320 x 320 pixel, colour touch screen, makes it easy to navigate. This, along with the fun colourful design, allows for an enjoyable interactive touch experience.

With built in tracking and SOS functions, the WatchPhone helps to provide parents with piece of mind. They’ll get real-time tracking of their kids with accurate GPS positioning, along with the ability to set Geo-Fenced safety zones.

For additional protection, all location data is protected with a 128-bit encryption algorithm

The rugged design is great for kids who enjoys being outdoors. There is a pedometer function for steps and calorie counting and a 600mAh battery capacity which will keep it going for up to 60 hours between charges.

  • The Phone doesn’t work and will not track with GPS. It is a terrible product that needs to go back to development. It will not update settings and the company is worse! They will not help you.
