‘Neo’, the smart watch that allows you to be connected with your children
Communicate with parents through calls, chats and emojis, take photos, see their schedule for the day, know how many steps separate their home from school or know when the good weather will arrive. These and other possibilities offers ‘Neo’, the new Vodafone and Disney smart watch, designed for the smallest of the house to take their first steps in the digital world, without sacrificing safety and design.
From what age can you start using this smartwatch? Its simple interface allows its use from four years old, although in terms of digital security there is no age limit because the device will always be linked and under the supervision of the parents.
Without Internet, but connected
The objective of Neo is to offer more freedom of movement and autonomy to the little ones, at the same time that it allows to exchange messages or calls with them and locate them in real time, without the need for a mobile phone, or bluetooth or wifi, so the child will not have access to Internet or social networks.
The watch, which is available to customers of any operator, has a Smart SIM card inside and a built-in GPS, which is activated through the Vodafone Smart App to manage the monthly subscription and access personalized settings. In the same application you can also choose the network of trusted contacts, who will be the only ones who can geolocate, make and receive calls from the child through ‘Neo’. In addition, the smartwatch incorporates the button Quick Call Instant call that allows them to get in touch directly when they need help.
With 48 hours of autonomy and charging via USB, the little ones at home can consult at Neo the weather forecast and your daily schedule on the calendar, use the calculator (with basic functions and without danger of chops on math tests) or participate in games and challenges based on physical activity and clock movements to encourage exercise and healthy habits. All functions, in any case, can be activated or deactivated from the application.
Neo It is waterproof with IP68 certificate (maximum 10 meters deep, 30 minutes), although it is not designed for swimming and diving in the pool, but not to worry every time you wash your hands or the device accidentally falls into the water.
In addition, the smartwatch has a 5 megapixel side camera to take photos of your day to day. The minor will be able to send these images to their allowed contacts, who can also reproduce, archive or delete the files from the mobile application associated with the watch. In the same app we will find the “Do not disturb” mode to establish a schedule for healthy use of the device, which limits exposure to screens and inactivates it at a certain time before going to bed.
Another novelty of the device is its design designed to be easy to use for the little ones. Neo It has an ergonomic strap that allows you to turn the dial so that it is straight or at an angle and is comfortable for children, available in two unisex colors: mint green and ocean blue.
The collaboration between Vodafone and Disney offers customizable sphere backgrounds based on favorite movie characters, such as Buzz Lightyear, Darth Vader, Elsa from Frozen, Minnie Mouse, Iron Man or Grogu, the Baby Yoda from The Mandalorian. In future updates of Neo New sphere backgrounds from the Disney, Marvel, Star Wars and Pixar universe will be incorporated free of charge, with different characters, sounds and characteristic emojis that are activated with the functions and games of the clock. But if you don’t like any of those characters, you can also enjoy watch activities with a neutral interface without pictures.
However, beyond all these technical and recreational possibilities, the star utility of Neo It is the safe communication of minors with their parents and guardians, and their geolocation in real time thanks to intelligent technology, at the same time that they are given more independence. Very useful, for example, for those children who come and go to school alone, or those who depend on school transport or practice sports activities outside the home, who on occasion may need to contact their parents.
