Intex has unveiled two new devices in its iRist series of smartwatches called the iRist Junior and the iRist Pro. The Intex iRist Junior is the first IOT based wearable device from the company and is aimed towards child safety. The device is powered by a MediaTek MT6261 SoC and has a 0.96-inch TFT screen. The watch also includes a GPS in order to help parents track their children. The Intext iRist Pro is an upgraded variant of the original iRist and is powered by a MediaTek MT2502 SoC. The new device has a water resistant build and is compatible with Android KitKat v4.4 and above. The watches were unveiled at the 2nd Smart Cities India 2016 Expo.

Intex has partnered with MediaTek for the launch of these smartwatches. Sanjay Kumar Kalirona, Head, Mobile Business, Intex, stated, “MediaTek is an important partner for us and together our endeavor is to bring the best products to the consumers. We have strengthened our portfolio of wearable devices with the launch of these new watches, which will help us in addressing the growing demand for this segment.”

Intex launched original iRist back in June last year. The device comes with a square display with a resolution of 240 x 240 pixels and is powered by a 1.2GHz MediaTek dual-core processor with 512MB of RAM. The device was launched running Android KitKat v4.4 and is meant to be used as a standalone device. The device also has a 5MP camera and a 600mAh battery, which the company claims can offer up to four hours of talk time.
