Are you here, palms sweating, because your kid just asked for their first smartphone? Maybe you’ve used another monitoring app and you’re worried what they’re doing with your kid’s data? Or you’re simply worn out from using DIY solutions to check your kid’s online activity even though the problem is complex and other parental controls don’t show you the full picture?
Whatever your reason, you’re in the right place! Trust us, we’re parents too and we know letting your kid access the online world feels overwhelming and terrifying. As we looked at all the options, we felt parental controls and other "solutions" weren’t giving both parents and kids what they wanted or needed. It was time for something revolutionary.
Enter the Aqua One, the best cell phone for kids.
That’s a pretty big claim, right? Well, we mean it. Let us tell you the 5 reasons why.
1) The Aqua One is a fully functional Android phone so say goodbye to screen time limits and app restrictions.
If that thought scares you, stick with us! Those “solutions” are failing kids.
Screen Time Doesn’t Keep Your Kid Safe.
Let’s start with screen time limits, the most accepted of parental controls. We’ve looked and the research does not back up the idea that limiting phone time protects kids.
- Online predators can groom kids within 18 minutes of logging on to social media.
- Cyberbullying can happen at any time of the day, whether 3 pm or 3 am.
- Who and what your kid is interacting with determines whether they have a positive or negative experience.
- And much more.
Simply put, your kid could spend two hours on social media interacting with friends and positive support groups and feel loved and connected! Or, they could log on for 20 minutes, see harmful content and feel bullied and scared. Screen time doesn’t protect kids because it doesn’t matter HOW long they’re using their cell phone. It matters WHAT happens while they’re using it.
App Restrictions Are Just A Band-Aid.
You’ve heard all the stories about the effects of social media on kids so parental controls and restrictions have to be the answer, right? Well, let’s think about this for a minute.
Does taking something away teach your kid to use it responsibly?
Of course not.
It’s the same with cell phones. Involvement is the key, not restriction. When you monitor their activity, have conversations about the inappropriate or dangerous experiences and interactions that happen, and take the time to teach them healthy habits, they’ll learn to make smart decisions on their own. None of that is possible if you use parental controls.
Imagine shedding that burden of fear because you’ve taught your kid how to safely navigate the online world.
2) The Aqua One syncs with its comprehensive Parent Dashboard for a seamless monitoring experience.
Now here comes the great part. We just told you why restrictions and parental controls don’t work but that doesn’t mean it’s time to give your kid unsupervised internet access.
It’s time for you to be involved and it’s never been easier!
With Aqua One’s Parent Dashboard, checking in on your kid is as easy as scrolling your social media feeds.
- Every single action they take on the phone is displayed in your dashboard.
- Your dashboard will update any time your kid uses their Aqua One cell phone, allowing you to check in with them on any iOS or Android device from anywhere.
Let us take you on a quick tour of everything you’ll find in your Parent Dashboard!
The Actions tab is where you will see every detail of your kid’s phone activity across all downloaded apps.
This means that every time they make a Google search, send messages to friends, watch a YouTube video, post on Instagram, or send a Snapchat, that cell phone activity drops into the Actions Tab in the Parent Dashboard. By simply clicking on the app you want to view, you can view a mirrored version of everything your kid watched, searched, or posted on their Aqua One.
Plus, you’re able to filter Actions by the app they are using or use the calendar filter to only see activity across certain dates.
Our real-time location tracking feature allows for GPS tracking of your kid’s Aqua One smartphone.
You can track them by tapping the location pin icon on the navigation bar. Rest assured, your kid won’t be able to deactivate this feature (or any feature for that matter) whether the phone is on or off.
If you have multiple kids with Aqua Ones, you will be able to see the location of all them on one map.
Let’s cut to the chase. How does that benefit you?
By monitoring their smartphone activity, you can see:
- the content they’re interacting with
- the friends they’re connecting with
- the information they’re sharing
- the topics they’re showing interest in
Aqua One gives you peace of mind when your kid is online and provides the opportunity to leverage this valuable insight as a parenting tool.
3) The Aqua One has a one-of-a-kind Mental Health Check feature.
If you thought we were stopping at monitoring, we’ve got news for you!
In order to give you the BEST phone, we designed our patent pending Mental Health Check to provide unprecedented insight into your kid’s mental health. We know big tech is building algorithms to capture young minds and show them content that keeps them stuck in scroll mode. It’s normal to worry if social media or internet access is negatively affecting your kid.
Well, until now…
Stop guessing about your kid’s mental health. Find it in the palm of your hand.
It’s time for you to know exactly how your kid is feeling.
That’s where the Mental Health Check comes in. Interrupting your kid’s scroll three times a day, this feature sends them thought-provoking questions that we created alongside clinical psychologists. In order to keep using their Aqua One cell phone, your kid must answer these questions (no working around them!).
An example of a question might be “Right now I’m feeling….” and your kid can choose from a variety of answers. These checks are customized based on their age; young kids are asked questions they can understand and older kids are given more complex scenarios.
Where do those answers go? Your Parent Dashboard, of course!
Once your kid has responded to their Mental Health Check, those answers go straight into your Parent Dashboard. You’ll see the specific questions and their responses so, for the first time ever, you’ll have a real-time snapshot of their mood.
This insight is accompanied by recommended tips from our psychologist based on your kid’s responses to the Mental Health Check. Say goodbye to any uncertainty on how to help them!
But, we didn’t stop there.
You can select the date you want to view to see previous Mental Health Check responses. Simply put, we’ve taken the guesswork out of gauging the ups and downs of your kid’s mental health. You can review all past responses to track any concerning trends that may need your extra attention.
4) The Aqua One keeps your kid’s data privacy locked in.
We mean that literally. Their data stays under layers of protection so it’s completely secure.
Want to get technical?
If you want the knitty-gritty of how that happens, let us put your mind at ease.
Our cloud servers are distributed and air-gapped, while data is chunked and stored in a non-attributable fashion. This means that no one can access our data servers from the public, and your kid’s data is stored in tiny pieces that only make sense once they are assembled.
Want to just know the basics?
It’s like your kid’s data is written on paper before our software and AI shreds the paper and places each individual shred in multiple locations. Once they are put back together, they make sense but until our software and AI reassemble the pieces into your Parent Dashboard, it’s just a bunch of random junk.
We don’t see your data and we never share your data with anyone else, including our network or service providers.
With our AI, no one looks at your kid’s data. Ever.
What happens on your kid’s Aqua One stays between you and them.
Just like it should be.
5. Unlimited. Free. Smartphone. Replacements.
Yes, you read that right. We know it can be scary to invest in an expensive smartphone for your kid when you know for a fact they’ll treat it like it’s invincible. But with Aqua One, you won’t have to stress about it!
- Did the phone screen crack?
- Did water damage ruin its battery life?
- Did food get stuck in the charging port?
It doesn’t matter what happens (because we know kids are always coming up with new ways to break expensive things); we’ll replace it for free.
Your standard monthly payment will completely cover any and all damages to the phone. All you have to do is reach out to our Customer Care Team, request a replacement, send us the damaged Aqua One smartphone (which we give you a shipping label for), and we’ll have a new one shipped to you before you know it.
Plus, you can do this as many times as you need!
Are you convinced that the Aqua One is better than the other phones?
If you’ve made it this far, you know why we believe it is the best smartphone out there for your kid.
We can confidently say:
- You shouldn’t have to decide between an unmonitored fully functional smartphone and a restricted simple phone that eliminates online freedom.
- You should have unlimited access to monitor your kid’s smartphone activity so you can have conversations about dangerous interactions online and teach them to use technology wisely.
- You shouldn’t have to guess the state of your child’s mental health but have in-depth insights and real-time snapshots into their emotional state.
- You should have confidence that your child’s data privacy is perfectly secure and never stored, analyzed, or seen by anyone other than you.
- You shouldn’t have to fear the investment of a cutting-edge smartphone but enjoy hassle-free, unlimited replacements for any accidents that happen.
At the end of the day, technology isn’t going anywhere, so when you’re ready to introduce your kid to the digital world, the Aqua One is here for you. Embrace technology and get involved in your kid’s online life in a way that results in healthy, responsible digital habits.
We know for a fact other kid-friendly phones can’t promise you that!
