STAFF REPORT ISB: Telenor Companion Watch – a communication gadget that enables parents to stay in touch and keep track of their children when they are not with them, is now available for purchase off the shelf.
It was showcased for the first time in November 2015 at the Internet of Things (IoT) Expo in Karachi, organised by Telenor Pakistan.
Telenor Companion Watch connects with parents smartphones through an app that displays the accurate and real-time location of the child using GPS.
Under this facility, children can generate SOS call to designated numbers in case of an emergency. SOS calls are diverted automatically to other members number if it is rejected/unattended from the first number.
The wearable gadget also allows children to send and receive voice messages from the watch, which the parents can listen to and record in the application.
Another great feature of the watch is geo-fencing through which parents can map safe zones for the child and get alerts as soon as the child goes beyond the fence. Silent voice monitoring feature is also available in the watch.
Parents can monitor as many as five companion watches at a time and assign them different names in the mobile phone app for easy identification of the child.
The companion watch is available at Telenor Pakistans Sales and Service Centres and on its website. Customers can also place orders at Telenor Pakistan franchises across the country.
