Accessibility Minute - Assistive Technology Tips and Tricks for Everyone

Jan 7, 2022

Hey there! Welcome to Accessibility Minute, your weekly look at Assistive Technology, those clever tools, and devices designed to help people who have difficulties with vision, mobility, hearing, or other special needs!

There are so many smartwatches available on the market today.  If you're looking for a new smartwatch for your kiddo, check out the MPG Kids Smart Watch!

The MPG Kids Smart Watch is far more than just a timepiece.  It is jam-packed with neat features that set it apart from other children's smartwatches.  For instance, it features fitness tracking to encourage children to be active, as well as GPS tracking so parents can track their child's location at all times.

Another unique feature built-in to this timepiece is the watch's HD camera.  The camera allows kiddos to take pictures of themselves on the watch.  Additionally, parents can also take photos of their kids remotely using their phones!

Other features include:

Built-in "high-accuracy" GPS positioning so parents can keep track of their child's location at all times
Ability to set the child's activity range in electric fence mode; if the child leaves the set area, the app on the parent's phone will trigger an alarm
The two-way calling function allows the child to make AND receive phone calls
IP67 water-resistant: watch can withstand dust, water splashes, and rain; please note the watch should NOT be submerged underwater
Available in blue and pink colors
