With the integration of technology into everything society uses, it has reached its way even to products and devices that are designed for safety. One great example of it is a Kickstarter project for the world's most advanced smartwatch. Meet the dokiWatch, a smartwatch designed for kids that can also function as a wearable phone and locator.
dokiWatch comes with 3G capabilities. Kids can make video calls, voice calls and create messages using one simple device. Users can send voice messages up to 30 seconds, and parents can send reminders and connect with its one-way text messaging feature. There's even a built-in SOS button that sends the wearer's location and triggers a 60-second recording. This smartwatch for kids anticipates what parents need in order to keep track of their children as it keeps them connected.
The dokiWatch features a combination of GPS, GSM and Wi-Fi technology to enable parents to accurately and easily track their child's location using a mapping service on the doki app. Parents can even connect multiple dokiWatches from their apps should they have more than one child.
Furthermore, the dokiWatch is equipped with safety features that include GPS tracking, thus enabling parents to know where their children are located right on their mobile devices. Moreover, there's an electronic pet, also known as "dokiPet" that can double as a fitness tracker to encourage children to move, stay active and healthy by engaging them with fun incentives.
As far as the specifications go, dokiWatch is equipped with a 1.3 GHz Cortex A7 dual-core CPU and 3G/GPRS/EDGE/GSM radios. It also comes with a 1.22-inch TFT color display with 240 x 240 resolution. It's powered by Android 4.4 + the company's doki OUI 1.0 that's compatible with iOS 7.0 and Android 4.0, or later versions of both. The battery with a 600 mAh rating can deliver up to 36 hours of regular usage or 60 hours on standby.
At the time of writing, the Kickstarter campaign has already far surpassed its US$20,000 goal with US$154,859 pledged. There are still 16 days left until the campaign ends, so there's still a lot of time should users be interested in backing the project.
