MGM Wireless (MWR) has entered into a sales and marketing agreement with Telstra's telco brand, Belong, for its SPACETALK device.
Belong provides competitive home broadband and flexible mobile plans and has more than 400,000 services including almost 250,000 mobile subscriptions.
SPACETALK is a child-friendly smartwatch and functions like an apple watch. However, it only allows wearers to call their parents and restricts social media platforms like Instagram, Snapchat and Facebook.
Belong will market SPACETALK device directly to customers, driving sales through the SPACETALK e-commerce store, which will have a special Belong-branded landing page to accept orders.
The telco brand will offer a 50 per cent discount on its popular $10 plan for the first six months on its mobile network services for new SPACETALK customers.
The customers will receive a co-branded SIM to activate their SPACETALK.
MGM CEO Mark Fortunatow says that thousands of customers already use Belong.
"The combination of high-quality reception through Telstra’s network and attractive pricing on the Belong plan make this a compelling offer for families to use SPACETALK," Mark said.
"It’s tremendous to see just how much new business SPACETALK has generated for Belong and Belong has recognised that in its marketing program," he added.
Belong is expecting to start selling SPACETALK next week, just in time for Christmas presents.
The company says it is in negotiations with Australian and overseas-based telcos and bricks and mortar stores.
