The Omate x Nanoblock is the Ultimate Kid’s Smartwatch for LEGO Lovers

by in News .


Every kid loves LEGO. Many adults do too, except when the blocks get trodden on. Eye-watering foot pain aside, it’s a barrel of fun building with those little plastic blocks.

Now, you can bring that fun to your kid’s wrist with the Omate x Nanoblock, a smartwatch created in collaboration with Japanese toy manufacturer Diablock to offer the fun and retro good looks that only coloured plastic bricks can provide.
 

Omate x Nanoblock


With is LEGO-inspired watch strap, the Omate x Nanoblock is the most eye-catching kid’s smartwatch we’ve seen. Available with a white or black plastic base, the strap has a variety of coloured plastic blocks on it to give it a retro, cool vibe.

The smartwatch itself is neat too. It has 3G connectivity, provided through a contract with Tata Communications, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and GPS connectivity. Omate says that a one-year 3G cellular subscription will be provided with each smartwatch.

Parents can setup GPS boundaries for their child and receive alerts to their linked smartphone or tablet computer if their child strays beyond a set boundary. The Omate x Nanoblock can also make 2-way calls, and Omate claim there will always be a good cellular connection thanks to unique global network partnerships.

Kids control the smartwatch via two hardware buttons, located on the side of the device. These let the wearer cycle through features such as the alarm, stopwatch, contacts, and the in-built camera, which is perfect for video calling and selfies.


 

Pricing and Availability


The Omate x Nanoblock will be officially unveiled at Mobile World Congress 2018, which takes place from 26th February - 1st March. Omate says it’ll cost $179, which is a competitive price for a kid’s smartwatch with 3G and GPS. It will go on sale in the US and Europe later in the year. There’s no plans to sell it anywhere else just yet.
