Futuristic smartwatch for kids
Aimed at ages 6 – 12, the all in one wearable phone is ideal for parents who aren’t comfortable with their children accessing all that comes with regular Smartphones unrestricted Internet access.
The dokiWatch does offer voice and video calling, as well as voice and text messaging – including the option to send fun emojis. But it’s the safety functions which set it apart as the child can only interact with contacts on a list preset by parents.
The Smartwatch also uses a combination of GPS, GSM, and WiFi technology to allow parents to track their child’s location, ensuring they are safe at all times. Parents are even sent an alert if their child leaves the geo-fence around a specified location, like home, school, or a friend’s house.
If the child holds down the red SOS button for 3 seconds an emergency notification is sent to all contacts on the approved family list, along with a 60-second recording of the child’s voice and any background sounds and an immediate update of the child’s location.
The fun side for kids includes dokiPet, which grows bigger and stronger the more active the child. The fitness tracker has a built-in accelerometer to track steps, distance and calories burned.
