Omate x nanoblock™ smartwatch protects kids through a secure platform integrating a 6 month free trial period services working all across the US and EU through a SIM data plan and comes with customizable wristband from Japanese toy maker nanoblock™.
Kids can wear and use the device straight out-of-the-box and parents do not need to buy any expensive SIM data plan from their local telecom operators to make it work.
“We are excited to launch the Omate x nanoblock™ to protect kids worldwide and bring peace of mind to the parents. This is the beginning of a new area for our Wearable-as-a-Service solutions as it allows Omate to offer a full turnkey mobility experience to consumers by embedding a global SIM card along with secure location based services.” Says Laurent Le Pen, Founder & CEO at Omate.
Omate POM = Data Connection + Location Based Services.
The Omate POM service stands for “Piece of Mind” that includes the Wherecom LBS smartphone applications service along with encrypted secure data connection from Tata Communications MOVE™.
The Omate x nanoblockTM comes with a custom prepaid 6 month data plan. No string, no extra fee, the Omate POM services manage a pool of yearly data that allows daily average fair usage features such as video calls with parents and GPS location tracking.
After the free trial period, parents can either renew the Omate POM plan for $39 for six months extension or $69 for a year of services through web portal or buy a standard plan through their local telecom carrier.
Given the growing threat of cyber-crime, any device or application aimed at children must be safeguarded with the highest levels of security.
What sets the Omate x nanoblock™ apart from other children’s smartwatches is the extra security layer provided by the global private network of Tata Communications MOVE™ – IoT Connect. It means that parents can keep track of and in touch with their kids in real-time, but no data on the network can be intercepted by unscrupulous individuals.
The API-enabled, automated Tata Communications MOVE – IoT Connect™ platform is fully integrated with Omate’s business processes, giving the company real-time visibility over customers’ data usage patterns, and control over tariffs and billing. This means that when a new customer switches on the smartwatch for the first time, it is instantly connected. The software-defined capabilities of Tata Communications MOVE – IoT Connect™ also make it easy for Omate to customise features and content with children’s needs in mind
