Smartwatches: A New Tool for Children With Autism

Just because your child has autism doesn't mean they can't be independent. With the help of a smartwatch, your child can enjoy lots of freedom and independence. You'd be surprised at how many useful functions you can perform with a smartwatch. Not only can you keep track of your child for their safety, but you can also accomplish more than simply monitoring them. Smartwatches are a new tool for children with autism, and we’re excited to share all the fantastic features of these devices below.

Smart GPS Monitoring

A smartwatch will allow you to keep track of your child at all times. You can also take advantage of geofencing and out-of-bounds alerts.

  • Geofencing refers to boundaries that you set for your child. You can select all the areas that are safe for your child to walk to on their own. You're essentially building a fence on the map for your child.

     
  • Your child’s watch will trigger out-of-bounds alerts when they leave your designated fenced-in area. That way, you can keep a close eye on where your child can venture.

     

By using geofencing and out-of-bounds alerts, you can grant your child significant independence. They will appreciate being able to walk to certain areas independently, which will do a lot for their confidence.

Parent-Controlled Features

Your unique smartwatch will feature various parental controls to protect your child. For instance, our device prevents all risky internet browsing and social media access. You can also control their phonebook to block all incoming and outgoing calls. That way, you always know that your child is safe and not speaking to strangers or browsing suspicious sites.

The Ability To Take Metrics

If your child has health issues, you can track their metrics through their smartwatch. That way, you know that they're safe and in good health when playing outside of the house. The type of metrics you can take include:

  • Body temperature
  • Heart rate
  • Blood pressure
  • Blood oxygen levels

You can take all these metrics remotely and discreetly. In other words, you won't have to bother your child by taking these readings.

SOS Button With Programmable Numbers

If your child ventures too far, gets lost, or becomes frightened, they can hit the SOS button. You can program specific numbers to automatically call when they press this button. They'll be able to reach out to you via a phone call or video call to let you know they need help.

It's evident that smartwatches are a new tool for children with autism; these devices provide a host of features to both kids and their parents. If your autistic child wants more independence, then our 4G kids GPS watch is perfect for them.
