Parents face a tough decision when it comes to their kids and technology. On the one hand it is more important than ever to be able to communicate, which is the function of a cell phone. On the other hand, phones come with all kinds of abilities that are dangerous for kids and can cause serious harm.
A family safety and technology company in California has an answer for this problem: the fully equipped 4G COSMO Kids Smartwatch. Capable of making calls, texting, video chat and more, it works without needing to pair with a cell phone. Best of all? Parents have complete control.
The COSMO parent app works on iOS and Android and has the ability to manage contacts on the watch, block calls, utilize GPS tracking, location history, geo fencing and more. In short, the COSMO Kids Smartwatch is not just a cell phone alternative, it’s a whole new way to introduce young children to technology safely.
Even though it is built with premium features the COSMO Smartwatch is also making news for being the most affordable device on the market. Competitors list their devices for upwards of $100 (the Apple Watch for kids starts at $400). During the holiday season, COSMO is offering their device for free (regularly $120) when customers purchase a low cost data plan.
“We’ve achieved something new with the COSMO Kids Smartwatch,” says COSMO founder and CEO Russell York. “We are offering the most affordable device with the most cutting edge features. To be in a position where we have the best product at the best price, we’re feeling pretty good about that.”
