A problem many parents face is: how can I stay in touch with my child without buying them a smartphone before they’re ready? For your children, the technology tug-of-war is over them having their own device. Now you can both win, with our smart tech solution for kids. Neo, the smart kids watch featuring Disney, gives your children a sense of independence while letting you stay in touch. We like to call it ‘connected independence’.
Use Neo to keep in touch with their adventures
Designed & connected by Vodafone, Neo is full of features that help you know what your little Super Heroes are up to – from calls and chats to viewing the device’s location on a map from your phone. And thanks to a camera, activity tracker and calendar, kids can learn about the world around them and enjoy hours of fun with some of their favourite characters from Disney, Pixar, Star Wars™ and Marvel. Neo the smart kids watch, therefore, gives your child a sense of freedom, while you have peace of mind during their adventures.
“The biggest challenge creating Neo is all about how it feels, the size of it, the materials we used’ – Tom Guy, Chief Product Officer at Vodafone Smart Tech
How to stay connected with kids using Neo
But while Neo is a connected device, it does not let kids access or browse the internet. The device allows parents to check in on its GPS location, and through the touch of a button, kids can call you through the ‘quick call’ feature.
Additionally, you can share Neo with other family members and trusted contacts by inviting them to join while personalising the features that they have access to.
Meet Neo’s Fun Disney character interface
As fun as it is functional, Neo the smart kids watch is the perfect match for youngsters who have a taste for slick design and aesthetics. The watch features two cool colours for the durable ergonomic strap – either ocean or mint – then kids can personalise their watch with their own sidekick from a selection of characters: Minnie Mouse, Elsa, Buzz Lightyear, Darth Vader, Grogu™ and the Armoured Avenger. These buddies come to life in the watch to create a sense of fun and encouragement. There’s also a neutral experience that includes a character-free interface in case your child doesn’t feel like having a character today.
“Since the days of Walt himself, we’ve embraced the amazing opportunities that technology brings to enhance our storytelling and connect with people in new ways.” – Tasia Filippatos: SVP, Consumer Products, Games & Publishing, EMEA at Walt Disney
What’s more, Neo will be updated with new and exciting characters from across the Disney, Pixar, Star Wars™ and Marvel universe over time. When introduced, kids can change their selected character whenever they like, at no extra charge.
Play, learn and encourage with Neo
There’s even more to this action-packed smart kids watch. An activity tracker monitors step count and sets goals with encouragement from their chosen character. Kids can also have fun taking photos on Neo’s camera. The app’s calendar allows you to create events and set reminders for the days ahead – both can be viewed and received on Neo and your phone. For budding meteorologists, kids can check the local weather and for future mathematicians, Neo’s calculator is sure to come in handy.
“Listening to parents, we know they care deeply about giving their children the freedom to explore the world around them, and we know children crave the independence to learn, discover and use new tech.” – Pamela Brown, Chief Marketing Officer at Vodafone Smart Tech
No other smart kids watch like it
Available now in the UK, Germany, Italy and Spain to start with, Neo works in over 100 different countries across the world, and counting. There’s simply no other smart kids watch that does what it does. It looks different, because it is different. Neo the smart kids watch is designed to last – for everyday adventures that keep your kids engaged and entertained, and connected to you.
