Tata Communications and wearables manufacturer Omate are working together to equip the Omate x Nanoblock children’s smartwatch with instant, secure, global connectivity. With a Tata Communications MOVE - IoT Connect SIM built in, the Omate x Nanoblock will help parents locate their children easily in times of trouble. The Omate x Nanoblock will be shown at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona.

The MOVE - IoT Connect carries all location, messaging and video calling data over an end-to-end encrypted virtual private network (VPN), ensuring maximum security of the wearer and the receiver.  The user will be able to send an SOS alert from the watch in case of an emergency. However, since this is a smartwatch, children will be bale track their health using the pedometer functions, set alarms for their schedules and a stopwatch. Omnate promises a maximum battery life of three days. There’s also a selfie camera with a  built-in photo gallery app. The watch can be charged through a magnetic charger clubbed with the package.

 

“Given the growing threat of cyber-crime, any device or application aimed at children must be safeguarded with the highest levels of security,” said Laurent Le Pen, Founder and CEO, Omate. “What sets the Omate x Nanoblock apart from other children’s smartwatches is the extra security layer provided by the global private network of Tata Communications MOVE – IoT Connect. It means that parents can keep track of and in touch with their kids in real-time, but no data on the network can be intercepted by unscrupulous individuals.”

The API-enabled, automated MOVE – IoT Connect platform is claimed to be fully integrated with Omate’s business processes, giving the company real-time visibility over customers’ data usage patterns, and control over tariffs and billing. This means that when a new customer switches on the smartwatch for the first time, it is instantly connected. The software-defined capabilities of Tata Communications MOVE – IoT Connect also make it easy for Omate to customise features and content with children’s needs in mind.

 

The Omate x Nanoblock will be available from April for the US and Europe. However, such a device could work wonders in a country like India where there’s always a looming danger out in the streets.
