Berlin, September 2, 2016 – Alcatel, a mobile device brand of TCL Communication, today announced the launch of MOVE, a series of intuitive wearable and lifestyle devices for people of all ages that demonstrates Alcatel’s commitment to affordable communication for everyone as it enters a new area of business.
The new series comprises MOVEBAND, MOVETIME WiFi Watch, MOVETRACK and MOVE Track&Talk. All have different features, colours and styles, but all have one thing in common: they are designed for active people with an interest and need to understand their busy lives to make them easier.
With the European wearable devices market alone forecast to grow at least 70% in 2016 , and exponentially around the world, it is the perfect time to launch these new and exciting products.
Ready, steady, move!
Introducing MOVEBAND, Alcatel’s first active bracelet that keeps up with all daily activities. Using a dedicated application, users can track their physical activity (distance traveled, pace, time, calories, etc.) as well as their sleeping patterns.
Out and about? Phone too far from reach? MOVEBAND keeps users stay connected by tracking text messages, emails, and calls right from the wrist.
MOVEBAND combines a sleek design and trendy colours with a charge-time of less than a two hours, meaning there’s very little downtime before it is ready to rumble again. MOVEBAND will be sold in a bundle package with Alcatel smartphones.
The clever companion
For on-the-go busy bodies, MOVETIME WiFi Watch is the handy companion for everyday tasks. MOVETIME WiFi Watch enables its users to make and receive calls directly from their wrists so they never miss what matters. Whether in a meeting or at a luncheon, Alcatel’s newest watch is notification ready — capable of opening emails, SMS and reminders.
Like its counterparts, MOVETIME WiFi Watch monitors all exercise data — steps, calories, distance, time, water and caffeine intake, and heart rate. Using a dedicated application, users can track their physical fitness.
Let’s get handsfree! MOVETIME WiFi Watch features an innovative gesture control system that allows users to take control of their smartwatch using simple movements. Simply tap on the screen to play or pause music, or rotate the wrist to play back or forward a song or to activate the camera for quick snaps.
MOVETIME WiFi Watch is available in silver, dark grey and gold.
Keep track of what matters most
Alcatel has thought of it all! To avoid sticky situations, such as lost luggage, Alcatel created MOVETRACK, a portable GPS tracker. Weighing in at only 33 grams, this device can hook onto luggage or slip onto a keychain. Its unique design also allows it to be attached a pet’s collar — to keep track of one of the family’s most precious assets.
MOVETRACK features real-time tracking for up to 4 days’ standby time.
Using a separate application, Virtual Fence, users can receive notifications when an item enters or leaves a pre-programmed safe zone. Users can also check the location-tracking history for extra reassurance.
Alcatel helps users keep track of what matters most, all remotely. Say au revoir to lost baggage, misplaced items and lost pets!
Connecting families and keeping up with the kids
After the launch of GO WATCH last year, Alcatel goes one step further in connecting children with their parents, right from their smartphones, with MOVE Track&Talk. Parents can ensure their children’s safety from the palms of their hands — making calls, sending voice messages, tracking their location, all from a dedicated user-friendly application.
Ultra-intuitive, MOVE Track&Talk can store five speed-dial numbers for quick calling and 10 pre-set contacts in case of emergency. Not sure where the little one has run off to? MOVE Track&Talk is equipped with a unique combination of GPS, GSM and WiFi to allow parents to locate their child within 90 seconds using the most accurate location information, either indoors and out.
With its lightweight design, MOVE Track&Talk is comfortable to wear and has a battery life of up to four days.
“Wearable connectivity is the future of technology and human behavior. It will shape our habits for generations to come,” says Vittorio Di Mauro, General Manager of Smart Connectivity at Alcatel. “This is why we’ve launched different devices for different ages so together we stay connected. There is a huge opportunity in connected devices for children as a way to reassure parents, me included!”
The MOVE series will be available starting from the end of September.
