The three different modules allow children to use the device for different purposes when required :

– In the watch mode Novus becomes a sleek, useful smartwatch for daily wear that stays put and won’t get lost or left behind when kids are playing in park, going to school or on-the-go. The battery can last for one day with one full charge.
– Novus Phone is ergonomically designed to fit small hands, easy and fun for kids to use. The battery can last three days with one full charge which is three times longer than Novus Watch. It is also suitable for children, who may need more privacy and don’t want others to hear their calls, to talk through the phone.
The development team responsible for Novus explain a little more about the devices inspiration and design. “Today’s parents want their kids to be in touch and reachable at all times for safety reasons, but they hesitate to give youngsters smartphones at too early an age. Kids are always attracted to fun electronic gadgets but regular smartphones can be a distraction or expose them to unhealthy internet content. What is needed is a device that has the reliable connectivity of a smartphone along with sensible parental controls and features kids love such as camera, multimedia, and more. That is why we made Novus, the perfect 3-in-1 modular gadget for kids that can be used as a phone, a watch or a home assistant. It is the perfect solution to keep kids entertained and parents connected with their kids and enjoy peace of mind. “
