LeapFrog’s wearable activity tracker

leapfrog leapband

LeapFrog says its upcoming LeapBand is the first wearable activity tracker designed just for children that “encourages active play and healthy habits while nurturing their very own personalized virtual pet.”

LeapBand “gets kids moving and having fun with 50 different activities and challenges,” the company adds, “tracking a child’s physical moves so the more active a child is, the more points they earn with their virtual pet.” As the child earns points through active play, they can unlock additional games, challenges, levels of play and virtual rewards for their on-screen pet.

The LeapBand has a built-in accelerometer, color screen, rechargeable battery, and a water-resistant design.

It will be available in August for about $40. There’s more information here.

Find your toddler fast

Kids can wander off — and while they might just be having some fun, new parents can quickly panic.

Now BeLuvv is developing the $25 Guardian accessory to ensure no panic is necessary: the wearable waterproof device sends parents a notification the instant a child goes beyond a custom-set distance.

The Guardian can also tie into what BeLuvv calls its “crowd-guarding network”  that it says will “turn every place into a safe playground for children.” Anyone who installs the app on their mobile device becomes part of  the “expansive and secure crowd-sourced platform to search for and pinpoint lost children.”
