Best Kids Smart Watch: OJOY A1 Kids Smart Watch VS MyFirst Fone R1

So you've decided to purchase a smart watch for your kid but noticed that we carry two different brands here at Synced. You're unsure of what makes each brand stand out and even more unsure of which one is best suited for your child's needs. Well, we hear you and we're here to help.

Rest easy as we've put together a comprehensive feature comparison guide comparing the OJOY A1 Kids Smart Watch and the myFirst Fone R1 to hopefully help you decide on which brand you should purchase based on your child's needs. 

Feature#1: Two-Way Communication

Best For Communication: myFirst Fone R1

Both the Ojoy A1 and the myFirst Fone R1 have 4G capabilities and feature two way voice calls, text messaging and personalised voice messages. Parents can send their child custom messages through the respective mobile applications.

On the Ojoy A1, your child has the option of replying with preset text messages like "Okay", "I miss you" or "I love you". While on the myFirst R1, preset text is not available and replies are limited to preset emojis.

Although both smart watches come with a 2MP camera, only the myFirst Fone R1 offers two-way video calling so parents can video chat with their child at any time as long as they have cellular connection. Which ultimately gives it the edge over the Ojoy A1.

Feature #2: Real-Time Location Tracking

Best For Location Tracking: Ojoy A1 Kids Smart Watch

Both the Ojoy A1 Kids Smart Watch and the myFirst Fone R1 have 24/7 GPS tracking. Parents can obtain real-time updates on their child's location using the respective companion applications.

The Ojoy A1 has a higher real-time GPS tracking accuracy of a 5-metre radius, while the myFirst Fone R1 has a real-time GPS tracking accuracy of 20 meters.

Feature #3: Water Resistance

Best For Water Resistance: Ojoy A1 Kids Smart Watch

The Ojoy A1 Kids Smart Watch features an IP68 waterproof rating, meaning it can withstand dust, dirt and sand. Furthermore it is resistant to submersion up to a maximum depth of 1.5m underwater for up to thirty minutes. This means that the Ojoy A1 can be worn in the shower, in the pool, at the beach and really anywhere a child goes no matter the activity.

Meanwhile, the myFirst Fone R1 is water resistant but does not feature a waterproof rating and hence loses out to the Ojoy A1 in this domain.

Best For Durablility: Ojoy A1 Kids Smart Watch

The myFirst Fone R1 comes with an elevated edge around the circular screen designed to protect the watch screen from scratches or cracks on impact.

While the Ojoy A1 Kids Smart Watch comes with Corning Gorilla Glass protection which is the same type of glass used to manufacture iPhones and is recognised as the industry standard. Your child will be able to knock the Ojoy A1 around without worrying about damaging the screen, saving you the repair cost.

 Best For Child-Proof Removal Detection: myFirst Fone R1

The myFirst Fone R1 comes with a sensor that sends an alarm and notification to the parents phone when it detects that the smart watch has been removed the child's wrist.

On the other hand, while the Ojoy A1 Kids Smart Watch does have power on and off record within the application, it does not actively notify parents when the smart watch is removed. Hence making the myFirst Fone R1 a better option for parents with children who have itchy fingers.
