The wearables trend has hit the kids market. Moochies has released mobile-watches aimed at children aged 3-12 years old for parents who don’t trust their kids with a full-blown smartphone.
The mobile-watches allow kids to make calls to two phone numbers that are entered using an app on the parents’ smartphones. Through the app, parents can also set a list of phone numbers that the watches can receive calls from. Approved numbers can send text to the child’s Moochies as well. The wristwatch mobile will automatically reject non-approved numbers.
There is an SOS button that the wearer can press in an emergency situation. The mobile-watch will alert the parents and send a 15-second sound recording from the Moochies device to them. Another safety feature is a Safe Zone setting. Parents can set designated ‘safe zones’ through their Moochies app that will send them alerts if the child strays from the assigned boundaries. There is a GPS tracker on the wearable as well.
Moochies can be ordered online for $119.99. The product features silicone strap, a range of cute designs and an LED screen which can display date, time, signal strength and caller ID.
