One exciting new feature on dokiPal is the integrated AI voice assistant, dokiAsk, a smart encyclopedia and voice assistant that fits on your child’s wrist. dokiAsk acts as a helpful intelligent tutor and lets children ask questions to satisfy their curiosity and stimulate their minds. With sophisticated Natural Language Understanding (NLU) and speech recognition for kids 5 and up, dokiAsk is designed to recognize children’s voices. Parents can rest assured it will not provide answers to inappropriate topics and that their kids’ queries will be answered in a safe and responsible way.

dokiPal’s smart locator utilizes advanced tracking that combines GPS, LBS, and WiFi technology for precise accuracy and triangulation. The watch uses Broadcom’s GPS solution for optimized location‐tracking and reduced battery consumption. dokiPal’s 800mAH battery capacity allows for an extended standby time of 72 hours and up to 48 hours under normal usage.
With a built‐in accelerometer, dokiPal’s activity tracker monitors steps, calories, and distance. Fun fitness goals allow kids to compete against their friends and earn badges, encouraging them to stay active and healthy in an engaging way. The leaderboard even shows kids using dokiPal how their step count compares to other kids from all over the world. Parents can monitor their child’s daily fitness levels via the Doki App on their smartphones.
A nano SIM card with cellular data service is required to activate dokiPal. With universal 4G LTE* connectivity, dokiPal can be used in over 150 countries. dokiPal is compatible with telecom networks worldwide including AT&T, T‐Mobile, and Verizon in the US. Instead of purchasing a SIM plan from a local carrier, Doki offers customers a more convenient and cost‐effective option to activate dokiPal right out of the box. Each dokiPal comes with a Doki SIM. Customers can subscribe to and activate the SIM card directly through Doki App. The Doki SIM works in over 50 countries. For US customers, the rate plan is only $9.99/ month for unlimited data.

The watch screen is made with gorilla glass, ensuring durability even with the most active of kids. dokiPal features a 1.4‐inch TFT color display with touch‐panel.

Doki App: The quintessential companion app for parents
Parents can download the all‐new companion Doki App with a revamped user interface and updated features, available for both iOS and Android phones. The app allows parents to communicate with, track, and monitor settings of their child’s dokiPal with ease, such as presetting the watch’s contact list
Teaching kids about time and responsibility has never been easier with the new Doki App. Parents can set events and reminders using the smart scheduler to notify children of upcoming tasks, helping kids learn essential time management skills. Parents can also set alert areas (geofences) for notifications whenever a child steps out of a preset zone. They can also set times for class mode, which disables all features of the watch, except time display and SOS, during important school or study periods.
Security is of the utmost importance. All contacts on dokiPal can only be set from the Doki App, ensuring no strangers can call your child’s dokiPal, which automatically block calls from unrecognized phone numbers.
