Some of the standout features on the new myFirst Fone R2 include the 5MP Wide-Angle camera and a built-in eSIM that is supported in 85 countries. Kids can keep the watch on at all times to use the fitness tracking, even when swimming, as the Fone R2 is water-resistant up to 3 meters.
myFirst Camera 50
The myFirst Camera 50 is a little powerhouse of creativity packed into a kid-friendly design.
