The new SPACETALK feature that allows your child to write their own texts

The new SPACETALK feature that allows your child to write their own texts

A number of community members in recent times have expressed the desire for their children to be able to type their own messages on SPACETALK. We thought this was a great idea and so the team immediately got to work developing this idea into a reality.

As you can imagine the watch face simply isn’t large enough to include a QWERTY keyboard and so we had to think bigger... or smaller rather.

We cast our minds back to when digital devices were much smaller; when screens only took up a third of the space on the device; and there, deep in the archives was the infamous brick phone. With that, we decided to re-imagine the old style of multi-tap texting and Spacetext was the result.

Your child can now type their own text by tapping the key that corresponds to the desired letter, until it appears. For example, if they wanted to write ‘Hey’ they would tap the ‘GHI’ key twice, the ‘DEF’ key twice and the ‘WXYZ’ key three times. 

To enable this feature, please make sure your SPACETALK is charging and turned on overnight to ensure that your device updates properly. If you can’t wait to try out Spacetext, you can manually upgrade your device. Go to Information, select System Upgrade and click “DOWNLOAD”. Ensure you’re updated to version 1.26. Once this is complete, your child can then go to compose a message, swipe right and the keyboard will appear!

Until next time…

Spacetalk watch

We found it quite a faff to set up and had a few issues with pairing and then the App. It could be much better. The watch itself is great and is already offering us reassurance with our child , who regularly is in the park with friends. Grandparents are really loving the calls and texts. Great idea and hopefully they continue to refine to make it even better. Really glad we got it.

Good

Its such a good watch for parental controls. My daughter is 7 and she loves it. Much safer for kids than even an ipad or phone. The only downside of the watch is that I can't see the messages she's sending out. Only the messages she's receiving. Other than that it's brilliant.

Very useful little device for kids and parents

GPS software really brilliant. Calls are clear too. Battery life is a slight problem as it will only last 1 day. But, wouldn't be fair to ask for more at this price point.
Well done Spacetalk!
