Affordable, internet-proof, alternative to communication with your kids
Times have changed, and while you didn’t need a cellphone when you were nine, and was perfectly alright without one, the fact remains that times have indeed changed. Your child is living in a completely different world and the ability to reach you in an emergency is a consideration that should rightfully be top-of-mind for you. Giving your child a smartphone that can’t be monitored at all times might not be the best way to ensure this ease of communication though, especially given the dangers that lurk on the internet.
With the new generation MyKi Watch which Gammatek, a leading distributor of technology accessories and gadgets, has brought to South African shores you can close the communication gap with your children when they are out of sight.
The MyKi Watch is GPS enabled and comes with a host of features that allows you to monitor your kids and keep in contact wherever they might be.
Using the MyKi Watch app, you can access information about your children’s location at all times. The GPS/GSM enabled watch even allows you to set secure zones in advance and should your child venture out of a secure zone, you will be alerted.
Children can also make and receive calls using their watch. For added protection, only numbers authorised by you can be loaded onto the watch so there is no danger of receiving calls from or making calls to strangers. You can even input your number to speed dial and in the event of an emergency, your child simply has to press the SOS button for you to receive the coordinates of where they are. MyKi Watch can send voice messages to you, as well as receive text messages through the chat in the MyKi Watch app.
