“Since the first launched of myFirst Fone in 2016, we have received a lot of feedback and suggestions from parents on how to improve our myFirst Fone. This year, we are proud to launch one of the best smartwatch phones in the market for the next-gen kids. We combined the traditional round shape watch design with the most wanted features like music, digital camera, fitness tracker and 4G connectivity to allow the parents and kids stay connected especially with video calls even whilst on the move. When kids pair the R1 Smart Watchphone with our open-ear Headphones BC Wireless, they can enjoy music while still be aware of environmental sounds. R1 and BC Wireless are the best on the move entertainment and communication combo for kids ever. We believe all kids will love them.” says G-Jay Yong, founder of myFirst.
