MyFirst Fone R1: The All-In-One Kids 4G Music Smart Watch
Giving your child their first smart phone is a big step for most parents. It is hence understandable that many parents are reluctant to purchase one as it almost feels like too big a responsibility for your young growing child to bear. Thats where purchasing a kids smart watch can help bridge the transition to a smart phone for both you and your child.
The myFirst Fone R1 is an all-in-one kids smart watch that emulates the essential functions of a smart phone without all the risks that come with owning one. Down below we've compiled a list of key features that make the myFirst Fone truly stand out in the eyes of both parents and children alike.
Feature Focus: For The Parent
4G Two-Way Voice & Video Call
The myFirst Fone R1 comes with 4G LTE connection which allows both you and your child to initiate video calls anytime and anywhere. The R1 retains and optimises the most important function of a mobile phone to keep you and your child connected all day.
24/7 GPS Tracking
The myFirst Fone R1 uses advanced GPS and Wifi functionality to give you real time updates on your child's location through the myFirstFone mobile application. The application allows you to receive scheduled location updates either based on time intervals or geolocations, keeping your child safe and putting your mind at ease when your child is off on their own.
Set physical boundaries for your children to ensure that they stick to locations you deem safe. You can preset safety zones through the myFirstFone mobile application and receive notifications if your child ever wanders out of the Geo Fence. Go about your day with a peace of mind knowing that your child is safe and sound and at the location they're supposed to be at.
Safety is a parents' utmost priority when it comes to young children and as such the myFirst Fone R1 is equipped with an integrated SOS button which allows your child to discreetly send distress signals if ever under duress.
Once the button is activated, you will receive an emergency location alert through the application along with a 30 second live recording of surrounding sounds to assist with any further investigation.
Kids are known to find all sorts of crafty loopholes when it comes to tracking technology that gives parents access to their location. Hence, the myFirst Fone R1 comes with a sensor that sends an alarm and notification to your phone when it detects that the smart watch has been removed from your child's wrist.
Feature Focus: For Your Child
Class mode on the myFirst Fone R1 eliminates distractions to help your child maintain their focus in school and can be scheduled according to your child's timetable. When Class mode is activated, only the SOS function can be used and all calls and message alerts will be silenced, ensuring that the R1 does not serve as an additional form of distraction.
In-built Music Player: Store Up To 500 Songs
One thing kids love the most about the myFirst Fone R1 is definitely it's music playing capabilities. The R1 comes with an MP3 player and a built-in loudspeaker with a battery life of up to 10 hours of playback time and can store up to 500 songs. With huge storage capacities like this, your child can listen to music on the way to school or in their free time. Its almost like owning their very own ipod!
Fun And Customisable Colours
The myFirst Fone R1 comes in three different colours: Space Grey, Lavender Purple and Macaw Blue. Kids can be picky, so its a good thing that the ultra-comfort soft touch silicone straps of the R1 are removable and can be switched out for a range of different colour combinations to cater to your child's preferences.
Additionally, your child has the option of switching between various themes within the watch to further customise their watch design.
Kids are accident-prone and tend to be rather clumsy. Good thing that 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. This means your child can afford to knock it around or drop it without having to worry about it being easily damaged, saving you money in the long run.
Tech devices for kids often have a bad reputation for being overly simplified and simply boring—this is where the myFirst Fone R1 truly stands out. The R1 strives to be different through maintaining its appeal to children without compromising on their safety. It undoubtedly does a good job in keeping your child actively interested in using the device and hence in turn keeps them safe and protected.
Ultimately, with unique selling points and a sleek user interface, it's easy to see why and how the myFirst Fone R1 is successful in doing something that other brands cannot: capturing the hearts of both the parent and the child.
