Fitbit to launch a 4G-enabled smartwatch for kids
Fitbit is now a Google company, but before that happening it bought Doki Technologies, a company headquartered in Hong Kong that makes smartwatches for kids. Doki Technologies probably draw Fitbit's attention due to the success of its products in the region, but also thanks to the technology it uses.

Engadget reports that after silently acquiring Doki Technologies, Fitbit now plans to release a smartwatch for kids with 4G support. No other details about the wearable device are known at the moment, as both Doki and Fitbit denied any comments on the matter.

Doki Technologies is the company that launched the world's first kids smartwatch with video calling. Also, its most recent smartwatch came with a physical “Doki SIM” that offered unlimited data in over 50 countries at the price of just $10 per month.

So it seems like there's a lot that Fitbit could borrow from Doki Technologies if the company really plans to launch a smartwatch for kids with 4G connectivity. Google is most likely aware of Fitbit's acquisition and since the company is reportedly working on such as device, we can safely assume that it's on board with the kids smartwatch.
