  • The perfect first smart device for a child, giving kids the confidence to seek out new adventures
  • In-built safety features give parents peace of mind while their child is out exploring
  • Available in-store and from www.o2.co.uk 

The Spacetalk Adventurer, a brand-new smartwatch and phone designed to give children freedom and their parents more peace of mind, is now available to purchase on O2 custom plans.

An all-in-one smartwatch, 4G phone and GPS device, the Spacetalk Adventurer is packed with cool features designed to give kids the confidence to go explore and seek out new adventures. There’s a 5MP camera for any budding photographers to capture their favourite memories, while a heart rate monitor and step counter can help young explorers keep an eye on their fitness.

The Spacetalk Adventurer has no open access to the internet or social media, meaning children won’t be distracted or exposed to any age-inappropriate content. A School Mode limits which features can be used during school hours so kids can focus on their studies while Reward Stars for good behaviour help to motivate children to complete their chores and set themselves goals to achieve.

Available in three standout colours – Midnight, Ocean and Coral – the Spacetalk Adventurer is not just fashionable but also robust enough to survive the rough and tumble of exploration, being dustproof, splashproof and protected for up to 30 minutes underwater to a depth of one metre. The ultra-long battery life means the device will keep up with even the most active kids, making this the perfect first phone.

4G calls, SMS, chat and accurate GPS technology keeps children connected to those who matter most. In terms of safety, there’s a Safe Contacts list that is pre-approved by parents, and an SOS Alert button which sends an alert to parents with their child’s exact location should they ever find themselves lost or in need of help.

For additional peace of mind, parents can manage everything on the device via the Spacetalk App, from approving the Safe Contacts list and monitoring their child’s location thanks to GPS technology. The app can even be installed on multiple devices so parents, grandparents – and even the whole family – can stay connected. 

Spacetalk Adventurer Kids smartwatch retails at £189. O2 customers can get their hands on the Spacetalk Adventurer smartwatch, with no upfront cost, on a 24 month custom plan for £7.88 a month with a £5 monthly airtime plan, including unlimited minutes, unlimited texts and 1GB of data as well as inclusive access to the exclusive Spacetalk parental control app (standard price £3.99 per month). Anyone who purchases the device before 6 October 2021 will also receive free airtime for the first three months.

O2’s custom plans allow customers to get the device their heart is set on at a more affordable rate, with the ability to choose how much they want to pay upfront, the length of their Device Plan, and the option to flex their data allowance up or down every month to suit their needs from a family of tariffs.
