We want our kids to have freedom, and we want to know they are safe.
But giving your six to eleven year old child a smartphone might also expose them to a lot of unwanted experiences.
Casper Chien faced a moment of panic when his young nephew disappeared from sight at the mall.
He thought there should be a better way to let young children contact their parents when they need help, so he created the dokiWatch.
What makes the dokiWatch special?
It’s designed for children to enjoy. Casper feedback showed him that if the kids like the watch, they are going to keep it on while they are out of the house.
For the parents, you can know where your children are at all time because of the built in GPS. And it has a panic button your child can press at any time to alert you they need help.
Having the ability to quickly see your children any time of the day is really a big difference and it’s incredible that it’s available in a $150 smart watch. Thanks @dokitech.
Casper shared in his interview with Maker Paradise the steps to keep the manufacturing cost low while delivering breakthrough features.
