TCL MOVETIME FAMILY WATCH
Young kids having cellphones is a growing international trend. Enter the Family Watch from TCL, which helps delay all the nasties and risks that come with this. It’s a bright and beautiful smartwatch which comes with wifi, Bluetooth and cellphone technology, as well as touch and a fullcolour display.
Put in a nano SIM and the child can call numbers pre-approved by parents and send voice notes or emojis. Up to eight numbers can be stored on the watch, programmed via an Android or iOS TCL app on a parent’s phone. It’s great for finding out whether your child’s extramurals were cancelled, for example, while group chats can also be set up for up to
15 friends who also own a Family Watch.
The built-in geofencing technology means you receive an alert if your child exits a pre-approved safe zone set up by you, such as a school or house perimeter. There’s also an SOS button for emergencies, simple embedded games and a twoday battery life.
It retails for
R2 699 from

R149 per month over 24 months.
