LAS VEGAS, Jan. 6, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Haier, a global leader in consumer electronics and appliances, introduces a new line of connected watches, specially designed for children and senior citizens at CES 2016 (Central Hall Booth #12814). 

SOS Connected Watch for Children
Designed for children between the ages of 2 and 8 years old, these watches are designed to give parents peace of  mind by keeping them connected to their children at all times. The line is available in a choice of three colors, features a 0.96'' OLED screen and is waterproof at  depths of up to 30 meters.  The battery life lasts up to two days and is equipped with a microphone and speaker  for telephone calls. The red SOS button can be used to send an alert to up to three numbers in an emergency situation. The Via app, available on Android and Apple mobile devices,  allows parents to define a geographical safe zone for their child and receive an alert if the child leaves that area. The app features a location interface with  GPS tracking, several days' worth of location history and the option to retrace the child's path. For remote surveillance, parents can listen to their child's surroundings through a baby monitor function.

SOS Connected Watch for Seniors
Haier connected watches also cater to senior citizens with an elegant design and authentic leather strap in either black or red.  Like the children's model, it also has a 0.96'' OLED screen and is waterproof up to 30 meters with a battery life of up to two days.  The built-in SOS button can alert up to three contact numbers in the event of an emergency.  The same Android and Apple app  is used to set up a geographical safe zone for the user and features a location interface with GPS tracking, multi-day location history and the option to retrace the wearer's path. Remote listening is a reassuring  option in a situation of uncertainty, such as being unable to make contact by telephone.
