myFirst: Keeping kids connected with a safe smartphone @ CES 2023

Friday May 5, 2023 (00:07:52)


The world of technology is constantly evolving and expanding, and with it, so is the world of kids' tech. Kids are now able to do many of the same things that adults do with technology, thanks to the introduction of products such as myFirst, a kids' tech ecosystem that includes headphones, cameras, karaoke machines, drawing pads, 3D pens, and a flagship product, the kid's smartphone: myFirst Fone.

Kids tech ecosystem available

The myFirst Fone is a line of fully functional phones that can be worn as a watch. It has a physical SIM card slot, and 4G LTE, and allows for voice calls, video calls, messaging, emojis, and social sharing. myFirst has created its own social circle for kids, with the core of it being family sharing. Parents also have oversight as to who their kids hang out with and can create a white list of who can contact their kids, track their GPS location, and set up geofencing alerts when they leave the school zone. There is also an SOS function, so if the kids are in need of help, the parents are alerted.

The price point of the kid's smartphone is $169 US for the square model and $199 US for the round model with a harder-to-get screen. This is much cheaper than a normal smartphone that an adult would buy, and even cheaper than most decent prepaid phones. myFirst is currently available in Asia, and Europe, and is launching in the US at CES 2023. They are also in talks with Amazon to put the product on their website.

The kids' smartphone comes in a variety of colors, including cotton candy and space blue. The straps are replaceable and customizable, and the watch faces are animated. In Asia, there are also specialty bands with e-payments, so kids don't have to carry a credit card or wallet.

myFirst's kids' tech ecosystem is a fantastic way for kids to stay connected and safe, and its products are available at an affordable price. Parents can rest assured knowing that their kids are in good hands and that they have the ability to monitor and control who their kids are interacting with.

New model with 20m water resistance and eSIM

One of the most impressive features of myFirst's products is the new model with 20m water resistance. This feature is particularly impressive because it allows kids to use their devices in any environment, even when they're in the water. The device is also incredibly durable and can withstand up to 20 meters of water pressure. This means that kids don't have to worry about forgetting to take their devices off in the shower or if they have to jump in the pool. Parents can also feel reassured that their kids are safe in any environment.

The new model is also incredibly convenient. It doesn't require a physical slot because of the eSIM and can be used with any telco bands across the US, Europe, and Asia. This means that kids can stay connected no matter where they are.
