We’re always looking for ways to make sure our kids are happy, healthy and safe. With the new Oaxis WatchPhone, we’ve found one – and it’s an all-round solution.
What is the Oaxis WatchPhone?
The WatchPhone is one of the many 3G smartwatches hitting the market at the moment for children. Like many of its competitors it is designed to be fun and “cool” for kids while offering parents peace of mind. With this nifty little device, your kids can send a voice memo, call or text while away from home, no matter where they may be. The smartwatch also features real-time GPS tracking, allowing parents to simply use an app on their smartphone to check where their child is and that they are safe.
Watchphone puts safety first
The WatchPhone is packed with safety features, including a one touch SOS function for use in emergencies. Once the wearer presses a discreet button, a 30 second voice memo is instantly recorded and an alert is sent to the programmed number of a parent or carer’s phone. The parent can then view their child’s exact location via the app and access the vital information needed to get their little one back to safety. None of us want to think about our children being in put in danger, but this tiny button could potentially save a child’s life.
The watch also allows for Geo-fencing, letting parents set up safety zones on their child’s device for extra reassurance. If a child moves out of a pre-designated safe area, the nominated smartphone will be alerted instantly. Parents can call their child whenever they need to, with the watch recognising that their pre-authorised phone numbers are safe.
Unknown numbers cannot call or message your child as the device automatically blocks communication from these. The WatchPhone allows contact only with trusted caregivers, which is something a smartphone cannot guarantee. If you want to stay in touch with your kids while they are out of the house but aren’t ready to give them their own mobile phones just yet, this device is the answer.
Oaxis are serious about security and ensure that all location data is protected for your eyes only. Information is encrypted via a 128-bit encryption algorithm, making the device and its GPS feature completely safe for use. The developers behind the WatchPhone really have thought of everything, with child safety being their number one priority.
As if all these great safety components weren’t enough, the Watchphone also offers more for your kids to make this a gadget that’s fun to wear and play with. The watch comes in 3 colours – blue, pink and black – so there’s a sleek design to suit any child’s tastes. Kids can send emojis and text messages just like adults do and the device is easy for young users to get to grips with, boasting a full colour, high resolution touch screen.
The watch has an inbuilt step counter and calorie tracker, promoting an active lifestyle by encouraging your child to meet step goals. It also features a silent mode for use during school hours to ensure minimum disruption. The device has an impressive battery life that lets your kids use it for up to 60 hours, so you never have to worry about it running out of charge while they’re away from home.
The Oaxis WatchPhone is compatible with both Android and iOS devices, making it easily accessible for all parents. It is fully compatible with all pay as you and pay monthly UK networks, using a micro sim for connectivity.
We’ve seen various kids’ smartwatches on the market in recent years, but this is one that certainly covers all the bases by meeting the needs of both parent and child. For a device that takes safety seriously in a way that is fun for kids, there are few that can match it.
