Coolpad Announces Kid-Focused Dyno One Smart Wearable
Coolpad today announced the Dyno One, a smart wearable meant for kids. The product is made from bright-colored materials and boasts a kid-friendly user interface. It includes a dedicated SOS button and is rated IP65 for protection against dust and water exposure. Coolpad says the Dyno offers an Android and iOS app, available to parents, for controlling and monitoring the smart wearable. It can deliver real-time location as well as set geo-fences for virtual perimeters and location-based alerts. Parents can message or call the Dyno when needed. Coolpad claims the wearable has been put through rigorous tests to ensure that the data is encrypted and safe from prying eyes. For example, the Dyno wearable is COPPA compliant and is secured by Smartcom. The hardware is based on the Snapdragon Wear 2100 platform and includes 4G LTE connectivity. It is being prepared for a launch in the U.S. market ahead of the 2018 holiday shopping season. Coolpad says more details will be made available over time.
Coolpad's new strategy includes a focus on products for families, so it's fitting that their first device of 2019 is a watch for kids. Naturally, it includes real-time GPS location tracking, for parents to keep tabs on their little ones.
