MWC BARCELONA, 24 June 2021
– TCL, one of the best-selling consumer electronics brands and leading technology companies, today unveiled a new smartwatch for children: the MOVETIME Family Watch 2. Building on the success of the original MOVETIME Family Watch, the new smartwatch includes features that help kids explore the world while giving parents peace of mind. These features include more precise location tracking, an improved camera, larger screen and 40 percent longer battery life.
“The MOVETIME Family Watch 2 is centered on the ideas of exploration and family connection,” said Sharon Xiao, General Manager of Smart Connected Device at TCL Communication. “Using our expertise in mobile communications and display technology, we wanted to bring together the digital and real worlds in a way that would allow children to explore independently and safely. We’ve done this in a colorful, resilient design that’s tailor-made for younger users.”
Since child safety comes first, the MOVETIME Family Watch 2 uses real-time location to show where the wearer is at all times and logs a full location history. Safe zone geofencing also means that if they stray outside the designated area their parents have chosen, an alert is sent to the parents’ phones.
4G voice calls, video chats and text messages are enabled with a nano SIM card, so that parents can instantly communicate with their kids. A one-touch SOS call button also means young users can reach emergency contacts without any delay.
Parents can keep a watchful eye over how their children spend their time, with the option to set up weekly reports on app usage, steps and distances walked. Kids can even compete with their friends in daily fitness rankings.
To make sure the MOVETIME Family Watch 2 is ideally suited to its young users, TCL developed a dedicated Kids UI to sit behind the 1.54” screen. Intelligent and easy to use, Kids UI lets children personalize their home screen with colorful wallpapers.
Bluetooth means children can easily add friends. They can also check messages and receive reminders from their parents. They can even add customized stickers to selfies or record short videos to share with family and friends, using the watch’s 2MP camera. With 512MB RAM and 4GB ROM of internal memory, performance is smooth and there’s plenty of space to store images from daily life.
The watch is perfect for adventurous kids who want to explore, with an IP65-rated water and dust resistant housing and replaceable hypo-allergenic wristband. They can use their smartwatch intensively for up to two days before needing to recharge, or it can manage up to seven days of standby battery life.
The MOVETIME Family Watch 2 ships across Europe in mid-August 2021, priced at €149.
