The smart watch is expected to launch in time for Christmas 2020

Vodafone has announced a partnership with Disney that will see the two develop a kids smart watch to be released in time for Christmas.

The operator plans to launch the product in its key European market ahead of the holiday season.

This smart watch will feature hardware designed by Vodafone’s smart tech team and is expected to centre around some of Disney’s most iconic characters.

It will be available both online and in retail stores, although a release date is yet to be confirmed.

The devices will be designed in collaboration with designed Yves Behar and his fuseproject team.
