Xiaomi has introduced two smartbands until now, the Xiaomi MiBand and MiBand S but no smartwatch. Well it did. But not a common smartwatch. It’s a smartwatch for kids: The Xiaomi Bunny (MiBunny).

Don’t be fooled by it’s cute exterior, under the hood lives a pretty capable device with all kinds of wireless communication such as WiFi, Bluetooth and GPS/GLONASS. With the touch of the SOS button (it’s for kids, don’t forget) the device sends the position of your child along with seven seconds of voice recording.

You can see the time and it is equipped with 300mAh battery, good enough for up to six days of usage. It comes preloaded with a prepaid SIM card to handle quick voice calls as well.

Made fully out of plastic to reduce weight and handle scratches when kids play and is fashioned with silicone straps. It is available in blue and pink and weighs 37 grams.
It’s compatible with Android phones that run Android 4.2 and higher. At the May 10 event, the company is going to introduce another wearable, the Xiaomi Mi Band 2, which comes with an LCD display and other updates to what has been a successful activity and sleep-tracking formula.
The Mi Bunny is on sale globally for  299 Yuan ($59).
