Track Your Kids Every Move
LG Electronics unveiled a new water-resistant polythiourethane wristband device that allows parents to track their kids with GPS and WiFi and receive advisories about their child’s exact whereabouts throughout the day via a smartphone or tablet. The device, dubbed the LG Kizon, is designed for the wrists of pre-school and primary school children and comes in bright colors and with various kiddie accessory features. In addition to tracking your child’s every step, the device also provides communication via a “One Step Direct Call” button. If a parent calls their child and doesn’t get an answer, the device will automatically connect the call and let Mom and Dad listen in on what’s going on via the device’s built-in microphone. The device will go on sale in North America in the fall.
