Smartwatch for children in the UK

Why a Smartwatch is the Perfect Choice for Your Child in the UK

For numerous UK parents, a mobile phone can be a valuable tool for keeping track of their child's whereabouts and being able to reach them when necessary. It also simplifies daily family life by assisting with coordination and logistics.

But here's the good news: You can postpone the purchase of a traditional phone, potentially laden with inappropriate content, and opt for a smartwatch instead. Hundreds of thousands of parents have already chosen myFirst Fone R2 smartwatches for their children, offering safe and controlled connectivity.

Empowering Kids to Be Kids!

What Is School Mode?

School Mode is a setting that allows you to set fixed on/off times, preventing children from using the smartwatch outside of designated school hours. During this time, the smartwatch functions exclusively as a regular watch, with all other features disabled.

Parents have full control over School Mode through the app, and children cannot override these settings. This ensures that the smartwatch doesn't disrupt the classroom environment. The step counter remains active even when School Mode is enabled, encouraging healthy activity.

What About the Camera Function?

Sharing photos online can be risky for children. With traditional mobile phones, setting clear boundaries is crucial. For younger children, avoiding camera-equipped devices might be prudent. However, myFirst offers a safe alternative.

  • Parents have complete control over who can see photos taken with the watch.
  • Images can only be shared with pre-approved contacts.
  • School Mode deactivates the camera for additional peace of mind.

Overall, the R2 smartwatch provides a safe and controlled way for your child to stay connected, have fun, and develop healthy habits.
