Vodafone Group has expanded its consumer IoT offering with two new wearable products: “V-SOS Band by Vodafone”, an emergency alert wrist band designed by Vodafone; and the “V-Kids Watch by Vodafone” smartwatch.  

“V-SOS Band by Vodafone” enables consumers with mobility issues to continue living independently and get assistance in an emergency situation, when the in-built “V-Sim by Vodafone” will send a message to up to four designated contacts, such as family members. The features of the device include - SOS alert, Care co-ordination, Fall detection, User location and Inactivity alert. The device is water resistant and its 200 milliamp hour (mAh) battery will last for up to a month. 

“V-Kids Watch by Vodafone” is a smartwatch for children that is connected over Vodafone’s mobile network, enabling parents to stay in contact with their child when they start to give them more independence. Its features include - Location monitoring, Safe zones, SOS alert, Messaging and Reminder service. The device's 450 mAh battery will last for up to three days depending on usage.

To use the “V-SOS Band by Vodafone” and “V-Kids Watch by Vodafone”, customers will pay a one-off cost for each device plus an affordable fixed-rate monthly subscription fee. For existing Vodafone mobile customers, the monthly subscription will be automatically added to their Vodafone bill.
