While the typical smartwatch-wearer is likely a connected thirtysomething businessperson with an interest in the tech industry, glo glu, a UK-based company, is looking to bring its 'Brillar' smart watch connectivity to an entirely different demographic: kids. The Internet- and mobile- connected wearable and platform gives kids a fun and educational system that's also easy for parents to track on their own.
The Brillar is packed full of functions: it's a watch, mobile phone, walkie talkie, pedometer, GPS tracker and gaming device all in one. When connected to glo glu's 'Roodimentary' app, the Brillar offers a suite of educational games that encourage kids to get active. The wearable simultaneously tracks this activity, giving parents a great way to follow the play without sacrificing their kids' freedom.
