Today’s parents want their kids to be in touch and reachable at all times for safety reasons, but they hesitate to give youngsters smartphones at too early an age. Kids are always attracted to fun electronic gadgets but regular smartphones can be a distraction or expose them to unhealthy internet content. What is needed is a device that has the reliable connectivity of a smartphone along with sensible parental controls and features kids love such as camera, multimedia, and more.
That is why we made Novus, the perfect 3-in-1 modular gadget for kids that can be used as a phone, a watch or a home assistant. It is the perfect solution to keep kids entertained and parents connected with their kids and enjoy peace of mind.
- Novus Phone
Novus Phone is ergonomically designed to fit small hands, easy and fun for kids to use. The battery can last three days with one full charge which is three times longer than Novus Watch. It is also suitable for children, who may need more privacy and don't want others to hear their calls, to talk through the phone.
- Novus Watch
In the watch mode Novus becomes a sleek, useful smartwatch for daily wear that stays put and won’t get lost or left behind when kids are playing in park, going to school or on-the-go. The battery can last for one day with one full charge.
- Novus Home
The home module has a built-in 4400 mAh battery and Bluetooth speaker. When Novus Phone or Novus Watch are plugged into the home module, they will immediately get charged and turn into a AI speaker. Equipped with Google Assistant, Novus can play music and multimedia by voice command.
- Simple Transformation
The modular design makes Novus easy to transform into a phone or a watch to suit the different needs of the child.
- Stay Connected Anytime and Anywhere
Parents can make a video call, phone call or send voice/text message to Novus via the Novus App, keeping in touch with their children at all times. Children can use Novus to connect with their friends, or reach their parents in times of need or to just say hello.
- Always Know Your Child's Location
Multiple positioning methods including GPS, A-GPS, LBS, Wi-Fi, and more, allows parents to track their kid's location activities at any distance via the Novus app. Precise, secure, and always connected, the Novus App gives parents peace of mind, knowing exactly where their little ones are at.
- SOS Mode | Asking for Help in an Emergency
Safety first! In an emergency, kids can trigger the SOS mode by pressing the power button 3 times continuously. It’s like having help along at all times.
In addition to its on-board safety features, the Novus app allows parents to manage their kids’ device in a number of useful ways, including contact filter, disable period, home-school reminder and more. It provides a good solution to know your child is safe and prevent them from overdoing with screen time. It is available on the App Store and Google Play.
Novus is an unlocked smart device. It supports nano-SIM card on the extremely fast 4G network. Technically, it can work over any 4G LTE network and we have tested it on most of the major mobile carriers' networks. And it supports adding a line to the existing phone plan as well.
- Fascinating LED Light Effect
When the slide motion of the touch wheel is used, a cool LED will light up as an attractive visual cue. Use the touch wheel to scroll up or down the menu and control the volume of the phone. It’s a simple and intuitive way for kids to control Novus.
- Perfect Companion and Helper for Kids
Novus Home allows children to accomplish any number of things, such as calling a friend, asking questions, playing music and even turning on or off the nightlight by using simple voice commands. Children can access useful information or get help with homework simply by asking when parents are not at home.
- Time | Calendar | Alarm Clock
The home module shows the time and date when Novus Phone or Novus Watch isn't placed in the charging hub. It can even set an alarm clock that will get kids up on time. It is an entertaining and useful companion for kids.
- Smart Nightlight with Infrared Body Temperature Control
After dark, the Novus Home module becomes a pleasing nightlight. It supports infrared remote control and can turn off automatically when people are absent and turn on again when people approach it. It provides a comforting light to brighten children’s’ rooms at night.
- Portable Multimedia Player
The phone module has a 3.5 mm jack, allowing children to listen to music by connecting earphones. Both Novus Home and Novus Phone include a stereo speaker that can play music or multimedia independently.

Risks and challenges
With our years of experience in the smart wearable industry, we are very confident with our process and production schedule for Novus.
However, we also know that hidden obstacles and challenges often occur. Because of that, we’ve made sure to account for some amount of craziness or unforeseen problems that may occur in our schedule. If something does go wrong, we promise to keep our backers updated and informed about any issues and about the way in which we are solving them.
For instance, our product includes the battery, which makes it more difficult to ship. In order to ship products safely, it takes a bit more time. Therefore, the speed of shipping may vary from different countries and the delivery may not reach some remote areas in some countries. Our team is making arrangements to expedite shipping now so that we can provide the best service for our backers when we reach our funding goal.
