Chinese electronics manufacturer TCL announced that it will launch its long-in-the-works wearable display next month in Australia with more regions to follow. The new wearable display is called NXTWEAR G. The company also announced its new cross-device multi-screen collaboration feature for select devices, in addition to TCL's ultra-fast LINKHUB 5G Outdoor CPE and MOVETIME Family Watch 2.
"Some of TCL's biggest strengths are the breadth of its vision and creative capabilities, both of which have never been as evident as they are at Mobile World Congress 2021, where we have several products that enhance the human experience," said Aaron Zhang, CEO at TCL Communication. "By adding value to key existing and future products with Multi-Screen Collaboration, TCL bridges software and hardware gaps across smartphones, tablets, and TVs, curating a symphony of experiences that seamlessly enhance the day-to-day lives of its customers."
The TCL NXTWEAR G Wearable Display Glasses is a portable cinema for movie lovers, an immersive world for gamers, or a private space at home, work, or on your commute. Combining a sophisticated, foldable frameless design with a comfortable fit, NXTWEAR G showcases a stylish, reflective deep black exterior and a high-end look and feel, the company said in a press release.
No charging is required; the grab-and-go glasses are plug-and-play, so can be powered by your compatible laptop, tablet, or smartphone. This creates a unique, fuss-free watching environment when matched with technology you already own.
The dual 1080p high-definition Sony FHD Micro OLED panels are perfectly positioned to deliver home theatre proportions, as NXTWEAR G emulates a 140-inch display with a 16:9 aspect ratio.
NXTWEAR G is compatible with more than 100 smartphones, hybrid two-in-one devices, and laptops from all major manufacturers, and will be available to buy in Australia beginning next month, with market availability to follow in select regions.
Building on the success of the original MOVETIME Family Watch, the new smartwatch includes features that help kids explore the world while giving parents peace of mind. These include more precise location tracking, an improved camera, a larger screen, and 40 percent higher battery capacity. Since child safety comes first, the MOVETIME Family Watch 2 uses real-time geolocation to show where the wearer is at all times and logs a full location history. Safe zone geofencing also means that if they stray outside the designated area their parents have chosen, an alert is sent to the parents' phones. 4G voice, video calls, and text messages can be enabled with a Nano SIM card so that parents can instantly communicate with their kids. A one-touch SOS call button also means young users can reach emergency contacts without any delay.
To make sure the MOVETIME Family Watch 2 is ideally suited to its young users, TCL developed a dedicated Kids UI to sit behind the 1.54" screen. Intelligent and easy to use, Kids UI lets children personalize their home screen with colorful wallpapers.
The MOVETIME Family Watch 2 ships across Europe in mid-August 2021 starting at €149 ($178).
