Children have a penchant for adventure but this can often mean a great deal of worry for parents, especially when everyone’s visiting an unfamiliar location.
Enter the V-Kids watch by Vodacom – a device that allows your kids the freedom to explore more and helps put your mind at ease so you can fully enjoy your Cape Town vacation. All you need to do is download the TCLMOVE app on your phone so that you can track your children at all times. Your children can also send an alert to your smartphone via the SOS button on the watch.
Here are five cool features of this watch:
See where your kids are
With GPS tracking, you and up to 4 other app members can see where your child’s watch is on a map and get directions to their location through your smartphone.
Safe Zones allows your kids explore more within a specific area. All you need to do is activate the Safe Zone option in the app. You will receive an alert if your child’s location moves outside the specified area, however alerts are not instant.
Know when your kids need help
If your child needs help, all they need to do is press the SOS button on the watch for 5 seconds and it will trigger an alert to all members connected to your TLCMOVE app. So even if you aren’t around, somebody with access to the app can help them out.
Stay in touch
Record and send voice messages of up to 30 seconds to each other – great for staying in touch throughout the day. Plus, if their friends also have the TCLMOVE watch, they can send voice messages and emojis to each other. However, as the watch’s administrator you will always be able to see and manage your child’s contacts through the TCLMOVE app.
You can also send homework and chore reminders in case they forget!
Designed for kids
The watch comes in two colours (blue and pink),it’s water resistant, and the battery lasts up to three days.
There are also three games available so they can be kept entertained including a voice changer and a calculator. The good news is you can can disable games and messaging with “School Time” so there are no distractions.
TCLMOVE Watch connects with the V-Sim by Vodacom that comes in the box. You’ll be connected without having to rely on Bluetooth or Wi-Fi.
