Summer holidays are a time for kids to play, to explore and to just have fun. It’s a special and unforgettable part of growing up.
SPACETALK is a new wearable technology, designed specifically for children, that creates space for kids to be kids - to safely enjoy summer’s small adventures and a sense of independence.
SPACETALK reduces kids’ exposure to, and the potential for, cyber-bullying.
An all-in-one fun and fashionable phone, watch and GPS designed for children aged 5 – 12; SPACETALK is the best of technology without the “mess” of technology.
Designed and developed in Australia, SPACETALK lets children make and receive calls and texts to and from numbers that parents choose - and only those numbers. (It’s fun to talk into your watch... like a spy or a secret agent in the movies!)
SPACETALK allows parents or guardians to know where their child is at all times, viewing their location - and location history - via GPS.
These summer holidays, when a child is wearing SPACETALK, parents will feel more comfortable allowing them to go to the local shops or to walk the dog around the block because they’re able to keep an eye on their child via SPACETALK’s GPS.
They’re just a phone call or a quick text away.
These independent adventures – no matter how small – can help children develop a sense of confidence and mastery.
In addition, SPACETALK is completely free of social media apps; no YouTube, no Facebook, no Instagram, nothing. With no access to the open internet, kids are distraction free and parents are worry free.
Ensuring primary-school aged kids aren’t exposed to social media and the open internet reduces the harmful risk of cyber-bullying which can be particularly acute for primary-school kids.
Other SPACETALK features include:
- a dedicated SOS alert button that can be programmed, in emergencies, to call a sequence of guardians and even local authorities.
- a step counter - an integrated fitness tracker with voice feedback - that monitors the child's physical activity.
- Reward Stars – a fun activity to incentivise positive behaviour and teach your child the satisfaction of achieving goals.
- approx. 24-hour battery life, an alarm clock, a stopwatch and a torch. It is dust, splash and water resistant - but not swim-proof.
And there’s a “School Mode” setting that allows parents to silence SPACETALK during class times to avoid distractions in the classroom... when summer holidays (sadly) end.
SPACETALK is managed via the AllMyTribe app, available on iPhone and Android. It is a high security device with all data housed in Australia.
SPACETALK comes in 4 different colours (teal, pink, grey and red) for $349. You can purchase from the SPACETALK website and JB HIFI stores across Australia.
