Lexand Kids Radar Review: Baby's Anti-Theft

Lexand Kids Radar Review: Baby's Anti-Theft


With the advent of mobile phones, anxious parents were able to exhale: you give the phone to the child - and you can call him at any time. True, sometimes children lose their machines, break them and forget to charge. GPS watches come to the rescue, allowing you to track the movements of your child in real time. But the clock is different. Obviously, parents, grandmothers, nannies need a reliable gadget that will work in any situation and show where exactly the child is. This is what our review is about.

Packing and packaging

Lexand Kids Radar comes in a bright oblong box, inside of which is a clear illustrated instruction with a detailed picture of the process of turning on and using the clock - it is difficult to get confused.

Also included is a Micro-USB cable with a funny magnetic connector in the form of a teddy bear and a network adapter. Alas, it is not very reliable magnetically, and this must be monitored.



Appearance




Lexand Kids Radar is a smart watch successfully placed in a case of standard watch sizes. Analogs immediately give themselves the size and flashy design, but here you can choose from a quiet universal turquoise color with a light yellow border of the screen and a pretty yellow with pink trim.

On the right side of the gadget is the SOS button: a five-second press on it allows you to send parents a request for help. On the left - contacts for recharging.

Screen

The clock screen is located on the front panel along with control buttons (there are two of them - switching on and “up”). The display is black and white, it displays the date, time, battery indicator and the number of steps per day (a good thing to keep track of the child’s activity, if necessary). The screen design is discreet, inherent to the TN LCD display with a diagonal of 0.9 inches.

Ergonomics

Compact and lightweight have become an important advantage of Lexand Kids Radar - the device weighs only 30 grams. Thanks to an adjustable clasp, wearing a bracelet will turn out on a child's arm of almost any size: its length varies from “adult” (for the wrist of an average man) to very tiny, so the device is suitable even for first-graders. The bracelet is made from a hypoallergenic thermoplastic elastomer.

This is a pleasant to the touch material, not afraid of water and dust (IP65 protection), it is easy to clean and hard to break. And you can not be afraid that from constant contact with the skin on the wrist will appear rash. If the child falls under the rain or hooks the bracelet with the sleeve of the jacket, nothing will happen to the clock.

Sync with smartphone

The gadget is activated by a three-second press on the lower power button. Since, for security reasons, the clock can only be controlled from a third-party device, the Lexand Care application was developed (downloaded for free in stores for iOS and Android). It contains all the necessary settings, which will be dealt with in a matter of seconds. To get started, you need to install an application on your smartphone (it is supported on iOS version 5 and above and Android 2.2 and above). In order to connect the smartphone with the clock, you will have to scan the QR code from the back of it or from the instruction, having registered by phone number (it takes a couple of minutes).

Apparatus in operation

What can Lexand Kids Radar do and how can parents benefit?

Their main function is tracking the child’s location in real time with an accuracy of up to five meters on the street and up to 20 meters indoors using the combined positioning technology and the LBS service Yandex.Lokator. Accuracy is high due to the fact that the watch receives information from several sources at once. These are GPS signals from satellites, signals from operator’s cell towers and information about the location of the nearest Wi-Fi networks from Locator. The combination of all possible ways gives an excellent result. So, no device can cope with natural noise in the form of walls, which is why the clock uses the coordinates of neighboring Wi-Fi networks.

The map attached to the clock of the smartphone displays the map with their current location (you can refine it by pressing the “position” button). There is also a "record" button that starts the creation of an audio file. The child will not guess that the audio setting around him is recorded, therefore, the use of this useful function will not confuse him in any way. Note that up to six people can look after the child from different devices, and notifications will be sent to each of them. To do this, you need to install the Lexand Care application and accept the request.

From the outside, nothing gives out the “cleverness” of the watch, and rightly so: if the kid gets into a difficult situation, he will be able to quietly press the SOS button and give the parents a signal without arousing any suspicion.

Another security component is an embedded SIM module. Pulling a SIM card out of the clock is impossible, just as turning it off (and determining the location). Thus, it is almost impossible to destroy the Kids Radar, and in any case the child will have time to send a signal for help.

Functionality and uniqueness

Lexand Kids Radar was designed for three years in vain - some functions are present only in this model.

Lexand Kids Radar does not need to be reconfigured when visiting another country: they operate anywhere in the world without requiring a SIM card change or roaming payment. That is, upon arrival in another country will not have to make any manipulations with the gadget - the clock will continue to work, as in Russia.


Control of the child is useful not only during trips abroad, but also at the airport, on train station, shopping center or just in any crowded place. A special tracking mode when the Bluetooth module is turned on helps to receive a signal if the child is 10-15 meters away from adults. You no longer have to agree to “meet at the fountain if you get lost” (you can also forget about the usual settings like “find a policeman and say that you lost parents”). Watch, unlike a smartphone, will always be on hand.

In addition, Lexand Care has the ability to configure up to ten so-called safe zones (such as school, kindergarten, courtyard, playground), beyond which the parent will receive a notification on the smartphone. For example, if the child went for a walk alone, you can set a zone on the map with a radius of 50 to 1000 meters, and when the baby is outside, the parents will receive a signal. Agree, it is much more convenient than constantly looking out the window or calling the child every five minutes.

Also useful are the option of sending location data at a certain interval - every 15, 30 or 60 minutes, and the opportunity to see the history of the movements of the child. Even the clock sends a notification about the discharge of the battery, so forgetting about it is not terrible - the gadget itself will remind you that it is time to connect it to an outlet.

You cannot call this watch. And it is rather useful, because no one without the knowledge of the parents will be able to tell the child something like "Mom asked you to take it out of school."

Autonomous work

The device is charged using a cable with magnetic contacts and a bear-shaped connector, which when connected lights up in blue. Full charge is achieved in two hours. On average, the battery life in tracking mode is about a day, which is normal for a gadget with a GPS that is almost always on.

You have to charge the clock every day, it is more convenient to do it at night, having taught the child to “put it to bed” bear charging.

Payment for services

To the amount spent on Kids Radar themselves, you should add the monthly fee for using the LBS service (the traffic volume is not taken into account). If you pay once a month, it will cost 299 rubles, once a quarter - 699 rubles, or 233 rubles per month, and if you pay immediately for a year, it will be only 167 rubles per month. The first 30 days (starting from the moment of linking the tracker) are bonus free.

Results

All parents want to stop worrying about their children, and with Lexand Kids Radar it has become easier to ensure peace: put the gadget on the child - and you no longer worry that he will get lost or run away somewhere. Navigation in the clock does not lag, with notifications there are no problems, the application works more than correctly, and the design of the compact device is nice and discreet.

Pros:


  • accurate positioning;
  • built-in SIM card that works in all countries and does not require configuration;
  • full functionality "out of the box";
  • compactness.

Minuses:


  • unreliable magnetic charging mount.
