Honor has announced a new smartwatch for kids named Honor K2 Kids. It has currently been announced only for the Chinese market and is already up for pre-orders. It should be noted that Honor is yet to showcase the smartwatch formally which is expected to happen at company's December 26th event meant for Honor V20 launch.
The Honor K2 Kids smartwatch can be pre-booked by paying a deposit ranging between CNY 20 and CNY 40 which is about $3 to $6. The actual cost of the wearable product is unknown but is expected to become official at the same event. It will also go on sale starting the same day which is December 26th.
In terms of specifications, the Honor K2 Kids smartwatch sports a 1.3-inch TFT display with 120 x 120 pixels resolution and support for touchscreen input. There is 4MB of RAM and 16GB internal storage which should be good enough for installing apps and storing some data. It also has support for nano-SIM cards for the on-the-go connectivity.
It has all the common features that one would expect from a kids smartwatch. It will allow adding friends, chatting them, send alerts and notifications. As for parents, it will allow them to track their kids' current location. It has a 660mAh battery which should make it last a day with ease. It is compatible with both Android and iOS smartphones.
