Oaxis has just launched a new children’s wrist phone, the WatchPhone. The feature-rich device allows kids to keep in touch using the 3G network, whilst keeping parents reassured of their child’s location at all times.
Essential reading: Best smartwatches for kids
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.
If the child feels they are in danger, the SOS function allows them to alert loved ones at the press of a button. This will trigger a 30 second voice recording, which will be sent to the parent along with information of the child’s location. 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.
