The Zong Revolution : Launch of a Kidâ€™s Tracker Watch
Zong is one of the most widely used communication networks of Pakistan that is known for its long-distance coverage and affordable rates. It has always come up with unique ideas to attract audience towards it including bundle packages and offers. A recent endeavor to stand out amongst its competitors is the launch of a kidâ€™s tracker watch to track their movements all the time.
Features of Kidâ€™s Tracker Watch
The kidâ€™s tracker watch, which is set to launch by the end of this month, contains all kinds of surveillance features that help enable parents to track the movement of children round the clock wherever Zongâ€™s coverage is available. At affordable rates, the officials of Zong claim that this watch is set to offer top line features and functionalities including:
- SOS calling to the cell phone of parents generated by the watch
- Safety Zones or Geo Fence to be present on maps and alarm notifications will be generated when the child leaves or enters a place
- Two sided voice calls for presetting numbers
- Real time tracking of location of the child wearing the watch
- Silent monitoring of voice
- Details provided to parents through an application
- Sending and receiving of messages and calls from the children through the watch
- Listening and recording of the calls or messages by the parents to track the real time childrenâ€™s activity from any area
Benefits and Features of Kidâ€™s Tracker Watch
The feature of SOS calls will enable the generation of emergency calls from the watch of children to the parentâ€™s cell phone along with the generation of emergency Google maps location links sent to parents. The Geo Fence feature allows the creation of safety zones for children at particular areas like playgrounds, schools and friendâ€™s house. This will help in alerting the parents when a kid leaves the designated safety zone. Moreover, two-sided calls will enable the child and user to exchange calls whenever required.
Lastly, the feature of silent monitoring allows parents to keep a check on the kid from a call without their knowledge.
Smart Phone App Accompanying the Kidâ€™s Tracker Watch
The kidâ€™s tracker watch is accompanied by a smart phone app which is used for controlling all features and functionality of the watch. The owner of the device will consist of a single admin whereas the other family members or related people can have access to it by adding them as members having less control of the watch as well as the application.
Pricing and Details of the Kidâ€™s Tracker Watch
At the time of launch, the price of the Zongâ€™s tracking device will be PKR 6, 500 inclusive of tax and without any extra charges for the first year. However, from next year, PKR 500 will be charged as a monitoring fee per year. This device will come along with the following bundle offer:
