A Dutch children’s smart watch in our comparison test is the Belio children’s watch from the manufacturer of the same name. During the test, it turned out that this watch and the HellOO Watch, about which we have already published a test, are the same device. In the following, we will discuss the differences in detail.
Checking the App
Belio uses the same Chinese app as HellOO. It is not obfuscated, making it easier for potential attackers to reverse-engineering the app’s functionality.
The behavior regarding the storage and logging of access data also applies here. However, since developer or root authorizations are required for this access, this is not considered negative.
In contrast to the HellOO Watch, a large part of the Internet communication of the Belio children’s watch is TLS1.2-encrypted and thus protected against simple man-in-the-middle attacks. The addressed servers and the communication process are identical, but Belio uses a self-signed certificate and secures the communication.
Information regarding anonymization and storage time is missing, furthermore contact data for privacy related questions should be added.
