Disney and Vodafone came together to create the Neo smartwatch for kids, which has characters that pop up throughout the day to offer entertainment and companionship. Featuring Vodafone's technology and friendly faces, sounds and imagery from Disney, the Neo smartwatch gives kids the ability to make and receive calls and send location updates in a safe way. The kid-friendly smartwatch also gives kids the chance to track their steps, check the weather, take photos and use emojis, while parents are connected to the experience with a smartphone app.
With the smartwatch, kids can customize their experience by choosing a virtual sidekick like The Child from The Mandalorian—better known as Baby Yoda—Iron Man or Elsa from Frozen.
