When cre­at­ing watch­es for chil­dren, man­u­fac­tur­ers must also take into account the inter­ests of par­ents, because it is adults who are respon­si­ble for the safe­ty of the child. Hon­or under­stands this, which is why the Kids Watch con­cept is built around one goal — to always be con­nect­ed. We’ll tell you what the new prod­uct is capa­ble of.

Appearance

The body is made of prac­ti­cal mat­te plas­tic. All edges are made round­ed so as not to cause dis­com­fort when wear­ing. The watch is avail­able in ocean blue and coral pink. The first option is more suit­able for boys, and the sec­ond for girls. On the inside of the device there is a micro-USB charg­ing con­nec­tor, hid­den under a flap. There are no sen­sors here, yet this is not a device for ath­letes.

The pow­er but­ton and ear­piece are locat­ed on the right side. On the left side there is a retractable tray for nano-SIM cards with a rub­ber­ized edg­ing. The gad­get is pro­tect­ed accord­ing to the IP68 stan­dard — for exam­ple, you can take a show­er with­out fear.

The frames around the screen are wide. On the top indent there is a 2 MP cam­era for pho­to and video com­mu­ni­ca­tion — this is one of the key fea­tures of the mod­el. You can also see the micro­phone hole at the top. The front side is cov­ered with plas­tic — you don’t have to wor­ry that the sur­face will break due to care­less wear­ing. And to pro­tect against scratch­es, the man­u­fac­tur­er past­ed a film. How­ev­er, I would like the dis­play to be slight­ly recessed into the body for greater reli­a­bil­i­ty.

The screen itself has a 1.3‑inch TN matrix with a res­o­lu­tion of 240x240 pix­els. There are three lev­els of bright­ness adjust­ment — at max­i­mum the image is vis­i­ble even under the sun. But there is no light sen­sor here, as well as auto­mat­ic bright­ness adjust­ment.

The Hon­or Choice Kids Watch strap is made of sil­i­cone. The mate­r­i­al is reli­able, elas­tic and hypoal­ler­genic, which is impor­tant for pro­longed con­tact with the skin. The acces­so­ry has a stan­dard mount (20 mm), so replac­ing it will not cre­ate prob­lems.

System and capabilities

The main idea of ​​such a device is parental con­trol and con­stant com­mu­ni­ca­tion with the child. The watch has a closed oper­at­ing sys­tem into which third-par­ty appli­ca­tions can­not be installed or any changes can be made. All for the sake of safe­ty.

A SIM card is required for full oper­a­tion. By insert­ing it, you can link the gad­get to your smart­phone — this requires the Kids Watch appli­ca­tion. After reg­is­tra­tion, a watch is added to it using a QR code — this is con­ve­nient, because you don’t have to look for the gad­get in the list of Blue­tooth devices. Hon­or Choice Kids Watch also sup­ports LTE and Wi-Fi. When con­nect­ed to the net­work, check­ing for updates is enabled — you can imme­di­ate­ly down­load a new firmware ver­sion, and the entire update process takes about 5 min­utes.

The appli­ca­tion is divid­ed into three screens. The first dis­plays chats and alerts, the sec­ond is a map with a loca­tion, and the third con­tains set­tings for the account and the appli­ca­tion itself.

The loca­tion is deter­mined using the nav­i­ga­tion mod­ule. The watch has eight posi­tion­ing tools in total: GPS, cel­lu­lar net­work, A‑GPS, GLONASS, Wi-Fi, grav­i­ty sen­sor, remote shoot­ing func­tion and smart posi­tion­ing sys­tem. So it won’t be dif­fi­cult to find out where and when the child was.

Remote con­trol is also avail­able: you can set an alarm, cre­ate safe zones at home, school and oth­er places. And also pre­pare noti­fi­ca­tions in case the child ends up out­side these zones — this option will clear­ly be in demand.

From the watch you can chat using emoti­cons, voice mes­sages and pho­tos. An emer­gency call func­tion is also avail­able — just hold down the watch’s pow­er but­ton for 5 sec­onds to send a call to the par­ent num­ber. In gen­er­al, in terms of con­trol, every­thing you need is here. It is worth not­ing that all data is pro­tect­ed by encryp­tion — both dur­ing stor­age and dur­ing trans­mis­sion of infor­ma­tion.

Operating time and charging

A bat­tery with a capac­i­ty of 850 mAh is respon­si­ble for the auton­o­my of the device. Con­sid­er­ing the closed nature and opti­miza­tion of the sys­tem, as well as ener­gy-effi­cient hard­ware, this is enough for five days of stand­by time. With active use, with nav­i­ga­tion, calls and chat­ting, the gad­get lasts about 2.5 days with­out recharg­ing. The result is not out­stand­ing, but we must keep in mind that deter­min­ing loca­tion and work­ing in cel­lu­lar net­works are resource-inten­sive tasks for a wear­able device.

Results

Hon­or Choice Kids Watch is a con­ve­nient gad­get for both chil­dren and their par­ents. The first will be pleased with its prac­ti­cal design and ease of use, the sec­ond with flex­i­ble con­fig­u­ra­tion and advanced con­trol options. Con­sid­er­ing all the advan­tages of the new prod­uct, the price of 50 $ seems jus­ti­fied.
