Lenovo Introduces Watch S Hybrid And Watch C For Kids

Lenovo is on a roll having released two hybrid smartwatches this year already, the Watch 9 and the Watch X. And now they have just announced two more smartwatch variations, the Watch S, which is yet another hybrid smartwatch and the Watch C, a smartwatch marketed for kids.

Lenovo Watch S

The Lenovo Watch S follows the Watch 9. It is actually an upgraded version of the Watch 9 with a newer dial look, a sapphire glass, and calfskin leather. However, it’s missing many of the characteristic Watch X features like no OLED screen present, no heart rate sensor, blood pressure monitor or any other kind of sensor for that matter. But you can still use it to track, count and record sleep, calories and the number of steps in a day. It’s been certified with a 5 ATM water-resistant rating as well.

The Watch S’s vibrating mode will alert you to calls and messages. They can be easily viewed and programmed in the Lenovo Watch app.

The Lenovo watch S is available in 2 color variants, Red and Black. It will retail for $34 and will be available for purchase on October 30 at 10 am on Lenovo’s official online store.

Lenovo Watch C

Lenovo designed the Watch C for kids specifically and is surprisingly a full functioning smartwatch unlike the Watch S. The watch is covered in Gorilla Glass with a 1.3-inch AMOLED square-shaped display. Lenovo states that the watch is 12.8mm thick and weighs only 42g.

A camera over the display ensures that the parents can remotely exercise control and take pictures at intervals to know their child is safe.

The Watch C comes equipped with a built-in compass for directions. A Wi-Fi enabled GPS (Glonass, A-GPS) is also available for tracking location.  An app for the watch lets parents set location for home and school and receive a notification alert when their child arrives on the particular location to ensure complete safety.

The watch is certified with an IPX7 rating and has silicone straps. It comes equipped with a speaker and microphone for ease of communication with your child. The Watch C can also be used to make calls to those who own the same kind of smartwatch. The watch includes an SOS button for emergencies as well so all-around a perfect watch for kids.

The Watch C is available in pink and blue colors and is being sold for $58. The watch goes on sale on October 22 on the official Lenovo online store.
