Since kids usually break handsets much easier than adults, bringing together a 3G smartwatch and a wearable GPS tracker is an excellent idea. Omate is a company that has just unveiled such a device, namely the Wherecom K3 smartwatch for kids. 

This next-gen smart wearable for kids is the first one in its class to be powered by Android 5.1 Lollipop. Its specs and features also include the following:

  • Processor: MediaTek MT6572M SoC with ARM Mali-400 MP graphics
  • Memory/Storage: 1 GB RAM; 8 GB internal storage
  • Display: 1.54-inch curved TFT capacitive multitouch with 320X320 pixels
  • Connectivity: 3G SIM card, WiFi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth, microphone, loudspeaker, GPS
  • Battery: 600 mAh

Omate Wherecom K3 has a polycarbonate case and uses removable standard straps. Its operating system has the exclusive Wherecom UI on top of Android, including preinstalled apps for kids such as games, calculator, stopwatch, and more.

This smart wearable will hit the market in April 2016 via Omate distributors, priced at $129 USD (unlocked). Monitoring services will go live two months later.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
