Computime and Naka Mobile partner to power Koko GPS Watch and provide parental peace of mind

Naka Mobile‘s global network coverage delivers constant connectivity globally, with no hidden roaming cost surprises

Buchs, Switzerland, 15 February 2017 – Naka Mobile, a global mobile telecommunication and technology company, today announced a partnership with Computime, the global manufacturing, technology and brand distribution company, to provide best-in-class global connectivity for its Koko GPS Watches.

The Koko GPS Watch is designed with child safety top-of-mind. Features include a built-in alert button, route history tracker with playback and location monitoring for constant communication between parents and children. Messaging options enable easy communication between parents and children. Alongside this, geo-fencing capabilities provide an additional layer of protection, ensuring children do not leave agreed safe-zones, which is especially important in busy environments.

Naka’s International SIM card works to provide the Koko GPS Watch with the best possible network coverage based on signal strength in any given location. This constant connectivity to the best local network at any moment is hugely important, making certain the Koko GPS Watch is always online, removing any concerns around losing contact between family members due to network failings and coverage blackspots.

“Connectivity is the fuel that our GPS Watch runs on, and in order to be at its absolute best, parents need to know that they will always be able to stay in touch with their children,” said Norman Lee, General Manager at Computime. “Our partnership with Naka Mobile ensures that we are providing parents with the greatest connectivity at all times at the best possible rates. With this new venture there is no risk or worry involved, just safety and peace of mind.”

“Whether it’s playing in the local park with friends, going to school or travelling abroad and exploring new places on holiday, parents want to know that their child is safe. However, while you can’t put a price on peace of mind, you can put a price on data roaming costs. Our partnership with Computime means that wherever you are, the Koko GPS Watch will always enjoy the best possible coverage while you benefit from the best possible data pricing. This is peace of mind for both your family, and your wallet,” said Achilles Rupf, CEO at Naka Mobile.

Naka Mobile has proven industry experience in providing best-in-class technology and enhancing global connectivity, delivering a comprehensive virtualised end-to-end infrastructure though one International SIM card.
