Children Without Smartphones Can Now Stay Connected With Their Parents With MaxisONE Kid

Maxis is making it easier for parents to stay connected with their children with MaxisONE Kid, a specially designed postpaid plan that comes with a kid-friendly smartwatch. Using the MaxisONE Kid watch, parents can keep tabs on their children’s location and easily communicate with them even if their child does not own a smartphone.

One feature of the MaxisONE Kid watch that parents will appreciate is the built-in GPS, which helps track and send the child’s real-time location and movement to an app on the parents’ smartphones. The app also enables parents to manage their child’s contact list, configure alerts to be sent when the child enters safe and dangerous zones, send text messages, make calls and receive pictures taken from the child’s smartwatch.

The app also allows the parent to “switch-off” the calling and chat function during school hours to ensure there are no distractions while the child is in school. The app also displays the battery life of the smartwatch as well as the number of steps the child has taken during the day.

“Most young children do not own a smartphone, which leaves a connectivity gap between them and their parents. There will be hours in a day when the child is away from their parents, be it for school or even playtime with other children. In line with our plan to continuously introduce meaningful solutions for the family, MaxisONE Kid provides parents with peace of mind, knowing that even though your kids are not within sight, you are still connected to them. And this is made possible through Maxis’ superior network coverage,” said Dushyan Vaithiyanathan, Maxis’ Head of Consumer Business.

Here’s what MaxisONE Kid has to offer:

Smart tracking – Accurate, real-time location reports and history of where your kids have been. You can also adjust the frequency of how often your child’s location is refreshed in the map.
Unlimited calls – Make unlimited calls to 10 numbers on any network. This enables parents to control who their child is able to call and who can call the child.
Intelligent safety – Remote listening mode (ability to hear your child’s surroundings) and one touch SOS call function in the event of an emergency.
Fun additional features – Two-way calling with 0.3MP camera and a built-in pedometer.
Share guardianship – Set up to 4 guardians who can monitor the child.
