There’s a lot of debate on the merits of giving children a phone at a young age, especially if functionality cannot be controlled by the parents. However, being in touch with your children at a moment’s notice will put any parents’ mind at ease.
Now you can get the best of both worlds. The GO Connect Kids Watch is a standalone device with an integrated GO Sim Card. This allows two-way calling and a chat screen where you can send short text messages to your kid. This is a great way to start introducing your children to technology without giving them full access to a smartphone. The same way you might not give a child a scientific journal to help them learn how to read.
It functions like most smartwatches on the market, but with a few extra features aimed directly at children. On top of providing a line of communication with your child, GO Connect Kids has inbuilt security features. First of all, you have real-time GPS tracking and an SOS button that immediately calls a designated adult in case of an emergency. The parents also control the phonebook from a dedicated app.
The straps of the GO Connect Kids Watch are swappable. With the variety of colours available, it’s easy to find a colour that your child prefers.
Finally, the watch can double as a fitness tracker, showing distance walked, calories burned, sleep patterns, and much more. Which lets you make sure that your child is getting enough exercise, and staying healthy.
