With the SmartKid WATCH accompanied by the Smartkid App, parents can have full control of their children right from their smartphone. They can set up the device, add the contacts that they authorised to communicate with the SmartKid WATCH, manage SafeZones, send text messages, track their children using a blend of GPS, GSM and WIFI enabled by the Smartkid App, and call their children from the App. The SmartKid WATCH keeps families connected in the way they want to be without the need to buy a young child a smartphone, hence changing the ways parents and their kids connect.
