Together with myFirst Circle 2.0, myFirst introduces its latest kids smartphone, myFirst Fone R2, along with myFirst Frame Doodle and myFirst Frame Live to connect kids to their families.
myFirst Circle 2.0 App
Singapore-based kids-tech company myFirst is elevating family fun with major updates to its social community app for kids - myFirst Circle. Available on both myFirst’s smartwatch and mobile phone app, myFirst Circle 2.0 introduces a slew of fun interactive features, including Momojis that let kids express their feelings through moving emojis and Knock-Knocks where kids can immediately respond to parents’ online nudges through a short video or photo. A new smart location tracking and classification offers parents real-time insights into their children's activities, providing parents with peace of mind throughout the day.
Momojis for Expressive Communication
Central to myFirst Circle 2.0 is the introduction of Momojis—dynamic motion emojis that add a layer of expressiveness to children's communication. These vibrant Momojis pop up on the screen with accompanying sounds, providing a lively and interactive way for kids to share their emotions with friends and family. With more friends, children unlock a greater variety of Momojis, creating a delightful incentive for social interaction.
Knock-Knock Feature for Real-Time Moments
Adding a playful touch to communication, myFirst Circle 2.0 introduces the Knock-Knock feature. This feature allows users to share real-time moments through 60-second videos or photos, creating a captivating and interactive exchange within myFirst Circle. The sender initiates the interaction, prompting the recipient to respond with their own video or photo to update on what they’re doing. It's a unique way to connect and share moments, inspired by the founder's desire to stay connected with his daughter's daily activities when he is busy at work.
Improved Location Scanning with Smart Classification
Safety and peace of mind are paramount for parents, and myFirst Circle 2.0 addresses these concerns with enhanced location tracking. The update introduces improved location scanning with smart classification. Unlike traditional methods, myFirst Circle 2.0 intelligently suggests and classifies frequent locations, providing parents with more context about their child's whereabouts. By detecting motion and checking Wi-Fi SSIDs, the system ensures accurate tracking without the need for GPS data, offering parents real-time insights into their children's activities, be it their best friend’s house, their school or other places. This enhancement will provide parents with even greater peace of mind.
myFirst Fone R2
Together with myFirst Circle 2.0, myFirst introduces its latest smartphone for kids - myFirst Fone R2, which comes with a slimmer and lighter outlook. It boasts a super-bright AMOLED screen, powered by a new processor for faster performance and reduced power consumption. The auto ambience light sensor and low-powered AMOLED display work together to reduce power consumption by 20% by automatically adjusting the screen brightness based on the surrounding light and only consuming power when pixels are lit.
With a 16% reduction in thickness and 7g lighter than its predecessor, myFirst Fone R2 sets a new standard for sleekness and portability. The design team achieved a significant reduction in thickness, slimming down the device from its previous 16.5mm to an impressive 13.6mm, resulting in a sleek profile. The R2 is also 7 grams lighter than the R1s, and also adjusted to account for a more snug, comfortable fit around the wrist.
The newly introduced Magic Button on top of the watch lets you access custom functions with single, double, or long presses. For instance, a prolonged press enables the sending of a voice message to your mom, a double click opens the camera, and a triple click initiates music playback—tailored to your individual preferences.
