TCL is catering to the tech savvy senior population at IFA 2020 with its new MOVETIME Family Watch MT43A smart watch.
The MOVETIME watch features its own 4G connection and allows 2-way calling hands free calling, a useful feature to pair with its fall detection capabilities.
The fall detection feature includes alerts to loved ones that indicate the person’s location.
The watch also comes with a heart rate sensor and medication reminders.
There are some potential pitfalls to watch out for though. All of the features listed are part of most mainstream smartwatches either out of the box or, like the medication reminders, by adding a single app.
There’s no mention of an operating system which usually signals an in-house one that is unlikely to ever see any meaningful updates (if any at all).
It’s priced at 229 EUR, that coverts to $270 dollars and right now Walmart lists an Apple Watch Series 3 for $169. It’s not the newest model, but it may very well be preferable to an untested new smartwatch.
