Ahead of Apple’s Far Out launch event tonight, a new report points out that the Cupertino-based tech giant is planning to launch a new smartwatch designed for kids.
The key highlight of this new watch is its pricing, which is said to be more affordable than the Apple Watch SE — currently priced at Rs 30,000 in India. If the report is accurate, we might see the debut of at least three Apple smartwatches tonight – Apple Watch Series 8, Watch SE 2, and Apple Watch for Kids. No matter how attractive this report looks, the launch of the Apple Watch for Kids seems unlikely.
According to the New York Times, people familiar with the matter, but not directly involved in the company, told the publications that Apple is aiming at the younger audience and parents with a wearable that would act as a “stopgap cellphone for kids”. This indicates that cellular connection will be a big part of the watch to enable Family Setup that doesn’t require an iPhone to use the Apple Watch.
