CES 2016, LAS VEGAS, January 2, 2016 – ALCATEL ONETOUCH announces peace of mind for parents with the launch of the CareTime children’s watch, which allows kids to communicate with pre-approved contacts and incorporates GPS tracking. 

“Connected objects are part of the daily experience of young children today, so CareTime can fit in easily with their needs and parents’ needs,” said Vittorio Di Mauro, General Manager of Smart Connectivity at ALCATEL ONETOUCH.

Simple Enough for a Child to Use

Designed for children from 5 to 9 years old, the CareTime 2G connected watch allows parents to call or send voice messages to their kids. Using the simple user interface, children can reply to calls from up to 10 pre-set contacts and make calls to 5 registered numbers. 

A Cloud Service for Safety

Through a dedicated smartphone application, compatible with both iOS 7 and above and Android 4.3 and above, parents are able to track their children’s location and to receive notifications when children enter or leave a pre-determined safe zone.

Using a blend of GPS, GSM and Wi-Fi, CareTime can locate children within 60 seconds using the most accurate location information, both indoors and outdoors, thanks to a dedicated cloud service.

Long-Lasting, Tough and Attractive

CareTime is rated IP65, meaning it is protected against dust and low-pressure water jets. The battery has a long standby time, lasting up to four days. And CareTime comes in two fresh color combinations, perfect for young children. 

It will first be available in Europe and Latin America in April 2016.
