Yes, you read that right, it’s GPS tracking for children – which can only be a positive thing in terms of safety!
The HereO watch is the smallest GPS tracking device available and fits a child’s wrist perfectly. Designed to look just like any other watch, the HereO watch is designed for daily wear with a time display, is waterproof and comes in a multitude of colours. Fifty hours battery life between charges will ensure parents keep connected with their children’s whereabouts, no matter where they are in the world, when used in conjunction with the Family Location app (suitable for both Apple and android platforms).
Young children wander off, one minute they’re there playing, you rummage through your bag for something and the next minute they’re not where you last looked. It’s not just younger kids either, knowing exactly where your children are when they’re old enough to leave the house without parents is sometimes tricky. Sure, they can tell you where they’re going and you have to trust that they will go straight there – but what if they don’t? The HereO watch and Family Location app together can show parents their child’s location, give Places Notification (arriving at school), Panic Alert (five horizontal shakes send an automatic panic alert), Tamper Alert (if watch is removed), Location History and Directions (receive directions to your child’s location). It’s clear to assume HereO has every situation covered.
The HereO watch is aimed at children aged three to twelve and will retail at US$149, including a charging dock and three months free tracking and will be available from retail stores from September. Pre-orders will receive a discounted price of USD$99 and you can order directly from HereO.
