But while the smartwatch doesn’t have a price yet, the tablet is confirmed to cost P8,999, or roughly $181 converted.

Huawei MatePad T 8 Kids Edition
The 8-inch MatePad T 8 Kids Edition is designed with the education and healthy development of children aged 3 to 8 in mind, Huawei says. Take for example the tablet’s eye-protection features, such as blue light filter, bumpy-road and posture alerts, and eBook mode.
And then you have Kids Corner, where the little ones can play, learn, draw, and explore as they wish. Just as well, because the Huawei MatePad T 8 Kids Edition is pre-installed with educational content. For Kids Corner, the company has partnered with BabyBus and Azoomee. If you have children, you probably know that the two are some of the leading educational developers creating apps for kids.
Parents or guardians can rest easy, because managing the time spent, apps used, and other viewable content on Kids Corner is possible. For instance, want to let your daughter use the MatePad for a maximum of 30 minutes every school day? Yes, you can. That’s just one of the many functionalities that are beneficial for parents and children.
The anti-shock case sports a blue shell that should help protect both the tablet and the kid. It has green grips that double as a support stand. And the stylus is said to let the young ones draw finer pictures on the Huawei MatePad T 8 Kids Edition.

Huawei Watch Kids 4 Pro
Did you know that the Huawei Watch Kids 4 Pro has a 5-megapixel camera at the top of its screen? That’s just one of the ways the company shows that the smartwatch is indeed designed to help keep children safe and healthy.
Safe, because self-developed network-positioning services can accurately record location every 120 seconds. The elders will receive notifications when kids leave or enter the Safe Zone. There’s strict data encryption and privacy protection for them. And since the Huawei Watch Kids 4 Pro supports HD video calls using MeeTime, children can contact loved ones who own Huawei devices.
Healthy, because the water-resistant Watch provides a counting feature and a one-minute activity challenge for skipping rope, free skipping rope, and sit-ups. Huawei says it can track users’ steps and provide a ranking, too — something that will likely incentivize kids to get up and exercise, especially now that they’re almost always inside the house.
In China, the Watch Kids 4 Pro is priced at ¥998, or around P7,714 in Philippine pesos and $155 in U.S. dollars. Stay tuned for the local pricing and availability.
