Exclusive: Zong to Launch its Kids Tracker Watch Soon

Zong is reportedly all set to launch its own kid’s tracker watch powered with all sorts of surveillance features for parents to track their children’s movement round the clock.

After Ufone’s UWatch, according to sources, Zong is planning to launch its Kids’ tracker watch by end of this month with an initial price tag of Rs. 6,500. This price will include taxes and monitoring charges for first year.

While we aren’t sure about complete feature list, sources tell us that Zong’s Kids Watch will allow parents to connect with and track their younger ones anytime and anywhere across the country (where Zong’s coverage is available).

Zong’s officials, who spoke with ProPakistani privately, claimed that their watch is going to offer top of the line functionalities and features at unbeatable prices.

Notable features of Zong’s Kids Watch will include:

  • Real Time Location Tracking,
  • SOS Calls,
  • Geo Fence (Safety Zones),
  • Two-Way Voice Calling
  • Silent Monitoring.

As with other similar gadgets, the Location Tracking feature will allow parent/guardian to track the movement of the child in any given premises and will be able to intimate parents accordingly in case any unusual movement is detected.

SOS calls allow emergency calls to be made from kid’s watch to parent’s phone and send emergency locations’ google maps link to parents.

Geo Fence will allow safety zones to be created for child at the designated areas e.g. school/playground/friend’s house etc. and will be able to alert parents in case the child exits the safety zone.

The Two-Way Voice Calling will allow both the user and the child to exchange calls should they need to.

And lastly, Silent Monitoring, one of the most prominent function of Kid’s Tracker Watch, equips the parent to check on their child through a call without their knowledge.

Sources told us that Zong’s Watch will come alongside a smartphone app to control all the features of the watch. There can only be one admin who is going to be the device’s owner, while rest of family members or related persons can be added as members with limited controls of the applications and watch.

As mentioned above, Zong’s tracker device, at the time of the launch, will cost Rs 6,500 — all taxes included — without any additional charges for first year. From second year, a monitoring fee of Rs. 500 per year will be applicable.

Zong’s tracker device will come with ZONG SIM & bundle of voice/SMS & data that will be valid for one complete year.

Expect more details at the launch, which is expected around end of February.

    Zong 4G MBB is throttling torrent downloads to 100kbps

    • omer

      ufone limited torrent at 50-60KB . checked many torrents with good health same crappy 50KB.

    • Arslan Ejaz

      yes they are limiting torrents speeds mine doesn’t go above 100KBps. :(

    • Waqas

      Zong is worst than Dial up. They also throttle facebook and dailymotion video streaming. I have to wait 4 minutes to load and watch a one minute movie clip. they advertise 150Mbps but in reality its -150Mbps and no body is there to ask them. They are following foot steps of PTCL. Support is getting worst day by day.

    • Paindoo

      I have experienced the same problem over last few days on 4G MBB. Are they following the footsteps of PTCL?

  • Jazzzz20

    East or West DSL is the Best :-)

    And suddenly everyone starts selling this tracking-toy-watch. Either it is Ufone or Zong, both operators need to improve their services.

  • Faisal Jan

    Is nt it the same as the one sold at Aliexpress for 24$. I have already got few for my kids. I guess telcos are running out of business ideas

  • Fahad Hafeez

    An idea which can be copied by all, don’t think its a unique product all will catch on. and be competing on prices and packages :p
