As parents, we want to be sure that our kids are safe and where they are supposed to be. If you want to accomplish this without putting a cellphone in your kid’s pocket (as we know how big of a distraction that can be), then the FiLIP Smartwatch is a great alternative. Plus, it will make you the coolest parent ever.
This smartwatch can pinpoint your child’s location using GPS and is also a super cool looking watch. What kid wouldn’t want to wear this thing?
You can also program up to 5 numbers into the watch. Kids can then call those numbers with the touch of a button. Using the FiLIP app, parents can make calls, track their child’s location, send texts and even set “Safe Zones” so parent’s will know that their kiddo is at school and safe. The FiLIP will then send notifications to parents letting them know when their kid leaves and enters safezones.
The smartwatch is super simple to use. it has only two buttons. A red and black button. The red “Emergency” button will make a phone call to the first person on the list, if no-one answers it calls the remaining four. It also sends a notification with the child’s location to the first contact and even plays a calming melody.
Each gadget costs $199 and can be activated for $10 a month through AT&T. That includes unlimited GPS location and unlimited calling.
