Hall 6 – Stand 6K30

 

Haier,   the world’s number one Major Appliances brand*   for six consecutive years, sets its sights on new markets with the introduction   of connected watches, specially designed for children and senior citizens,   and GPS pet collars at Mobile World Congress 2015. These new innovative and   high-performance connected objects have unique functions and are further   evidence of Haier’s expertise in developing exceptional technologies.

 

SOS connected   watch for children

 

Designed for children between   the ages of 2 and 8 years old, this unique product gives parents peace of   mind by keeping them connected to their children at all times.

 

The watch is available in a choice of colours, features a 0.96’’   OLED screen and is waterproof at   depths ofup to 30 metres. It has   a battery life of up to two days and is equipped with a microphone and speaker   for telephone calls. Meanwhile, its red SOS   button can be used to send an alert to up to three numbers in an   emergency situation.

   

Via a dedicated app, available on Android and Apple mobile devices,   parents can define a safe zone for   their child and receive an alert if the child leaves that area. The app   features a location interface with   GPS tracking, several days’ worth of location history and the option to   retrace the child’s path.

 

For remote surveillance, parents   can listen to their child’s surroundings through a baby monitor function. Like the Haier E-ZY Smartphone range,   it will be compatible with the planned Haier SOS service.

 

Availability date and pricing   information to be communicated at a later date.

 

SOS connected watch for seniors                 

 

The Haier connected watches range   also caters for senior citizens, with a similarly functional model. It has an   adapted elegant design, with an authentic leather strap in either black or   red.

 

Like the children’s model, it also has   a 0.96’’ OLED screen and is waterproof up to 30 metres. The watch   has a battery life of up to two days and is equipped with an SOS button to   alert up to three contact numbers in the event of an emergency.  

   

The same Android and Apple app   is used to set up a safe zone for   the wearer. It features a locationinterface with GPS tracking,   multi-day location history and the option to retrace the wearer’s path. Remote listening is a reassuring   option in a situation of uncertainty, such as being unable to make contact by   telephone. Like the Haier E-ZY Smartphone range, it will be compatible with   the planned Haier SOS service.

SOS connected collar for animals

 

Lastly, Haier is offering a product   for pets – a connected collar for your beloved companions. The collar is   equipped with a microphone, a speaker and a red SOS button that can be used to   contact the owner, for example if a person finds the animal lost.

 

Using the smartphone app for   Android and Apple mobile devices, users can define a safe zone for their pet and receive alerts when it leaves the   area. GPS tracking   is available at all times, with multi-day   location history and the capability to retrace the pet’s path.

   

Remote   monitoring is also possible through the product’s listening   function. The GPS technology works with any kind of collar and is provided   with an authentic leather collar, available in several colours.
