There’s IoT tech for every kind of event you could imagine as a parent!
We’ve compiled a list of our favorites. With all of these new devices, you can be sure that your child is safe and still able to have fun.
hereO: GPS Watch for Kids
Tracking devices for kids are nothing new, but a tracking device that the kid will actually want to wear is a whole new story. HereO is a watch with built in GPS, specifically designed to appeal to little kid’s taste. These cool little devices come in all sorts of color combinations, guaranteeing that your child will find one that they like. It’s a win/win for both you and your child! They get to play and be themselves, and you can relax while keeping up with their whereabouts from your phone. The app works on both iOS and Android, with tons of tools and a slick and easy interface.
Tinitell: Wearable Phone for Kids
Tinitell is a great way to keep in touch with your child at all times. This wristband allows you to speak directly to your child, no matter where they are. The best thing about Tinitell is that it is very simplified and so easy to use for all ages. The device comes in a variety of colors, and gives you peace of mind as you can know that you always have the ability to contact your child.
Filip: Wearable Locator and Phone for Kids
Filip is very similar to both hereO and Tinitell in that it is another wristband that your child wears. Like hereO, Filip contains a GPS tracker to help you keep up with your child’s whereabouts, but it also allows phone calls just like Tinitell. Filip is a bit more advanced than both hereO and Tinitell, and is therefore recommended for kids that are a little bit older. Filip not only shows you your child’s whereabouts and lets you call them, but it also allows you to send short messages and lets them call you in the case of an emergency. You really can not go wrong with having a Filip for your school aged child, as it gives you all of the convenience of phone and text with none of the dangers of giving them unfettered access to a smartphone.
