    Neo, The Game-Changing Smartwatch, Designed For Kids

    Vodacom unveils Neo, the game changing smartwatch designed for kids, featuring iconic characters from Disney, Pixar, Marvel, and Star Wars.

    Vodacom and Disney have combined their respective skills in technology and entertainment to produce a device combining function, style and fun. The result is Neo, the smart watch for kids that connects you with your child – and makes it fun for them. You and your young one can call and chat while they enjoy their favourite characters and emojis and gain a sense of independence as they take their first step into the digital world. 

    Neo is packed with Vodacom tech that empowers children to discover, play and grow. A built-in forward-facing camera lets them capture their daily adventures, while the activity tracker logs movement and sets a goal that incentivises them to get physically active – rather than just sitting around playing e-games! The calendar and weather features also encourage children to interact with the world around them.  

    Most importantly, the Neo keeps you connected with your child through calls, chat and video messages. 

    Top features 

    • Neo delivers cutting-edge connectivity, design and performance. 

    • Packed full of Vodacom technology providing parental control and peace of mind, along with a Disney experience to empower and entertain children. 

    • Neo features some of the most popular Disney characters of all time from the worlds of Disney, Pixar, Marvel and Star Wars, including Minnie Mouse, Elsa, Buzz Lightyear, Darth Vader, the Child from Mandalorian, and the Armoured Avenger – who come to life at the touch of a button. Kids can switch to another character whenever they like. 

    • The watch will automatically update over time with additional characters and experiences at no charge via built-in firmware updates. 

    • Neo is the latest member of the Designed & Connected by Vodacom range, powered by the Vodafone Smart App to create a connected ecosystem enabling multiple use cases and cross-device intelligence. 

    Safety & control 

    For your peace of mind, the Vodafone Smart App gives you, or another designated adult, full control of the child’s digital experience with Neo. You can: 

    • Approve a circle of trusted contacts. 

    • Manage screen time through ‘Quiet Mode’.  

    • Set events and reminders. 

    Neo is the perfect first step for parents and children to stay connected in a fun and exciting tech environment without access to the internet or social media. It delivers a truly unbeatable smartwatch experience for kids!
