You are never too young to own a mobile phone — at least that’s what a lot of parents seem to think today. If you fall into this category, you might like give your child, a device that is not likely to be misplaced or lost; that  buys you piece of mind about his or her whereabouts and throws in few sensible fitness tools.

Thankfully, there is a device that  does all of the above — Ojoy A1 is children’s smartwatch cum- 4G phone — launched by Chennai-headquartered  NWSD, in major markets of South East Asia, Middle East, US and now India.

Light on the wrist at just 51 grams, but still sporting a 1.4 inch screen, Ojoy A1 can be synced with a companion app so that parents  can use GPS to keep track of the wearer’s whereabouts. Calls can be made only to family and friends, within a list added by parent.

The device like most smartwatches, doubles as a step counter and activity tracker. Also thoughtfully, it has a weather feature  and flashes extreme weather warnings. A basic 2 MP camera is also included as well as 4 GB of storage. The Rs 12,999 is currently selling online at a discounted price of Rs 9,999.
