Provides peace of mind.
Alcatel will launch the Alcatel MoveTime Family Watch 3G (MT30) designed to help parents stay connected with their children.
Available exclusively through Vodafone Australia for RRP $180, the new cellular-connected watch enables children to call or message their parents and friends while also providing accurate location tracking and geo-fencing capabilities.
Through the dedicated TCLMove app, parents can view their child’s whereabouts, contact the device, and customise which features their child can access.
Alcatel vice president and regional managing director for South-East Asia and Pacific, Sam Skontos said, “As a father, I am passionate about the launch of the Alcatel MoveTime Family Watch 3G as it helps give children the independence they crave, and parents the peace of mind they need. It takes away the pressure of giving your child their first smartphone so young, and provides them with a device that’s easy and safe for kids to use.”
Vodafone Australia chief commercial officer, Ben McIntosh commented, “We are proud to be the exclusive stockist of the Alcatel MoveTime Family Watch which is available to purchase outright or on our no lock-in contracts. Parents can spread out the cost of the watch across 12, 24 or 36 months with a $10 wearable plan which includes unlimited talk and text and 1GB data.”
The Alcatel Family Watch features a colourful touchscreen and allows young children to add friends through Bluetooth, send emoji icons and messages, and make and receive calls to designated contacts. It also provides children with a to-do list and reminder function that teaches time management and flags important dates or appointments.
The watch offers up to two days of battery life on a single charge and is IP67 rated, water-resistant (up to one metre in static water for up to one hour) and dust-proof. Watch faces and wristbands can be changed.
The SOS button on the watch enables the device to call for help in an emergency and be located, while the geofence feature can send alerts when their device exits a pre-set safe zone. Parents are also able to view their child’s device whereabouts throughout the day via the dedicated app and contact the device.
