An upcoming gadget, the hereO GPS watch, “enables parents to know the whereabouts of their children at any moment directly on their mobile” device.
“For the first time, tracking technology has been miniaturized to fit in a trendy kids watch,” say the project developers. Their hereO “is the world’s smallest real-time connected GPS tracking device, created specifically for children three years old and up.”
The developers add that while there are a number of child tracking products and services, their watch half the size smaller of other wearable tracking, and it will be less than half the price. Also, the watch’s built-in SIM card automatically connects to a local carrier in more than 140 countries with no roaming fees.
It’s only a project now, but it’s reached it’s initial funding goal and is set to ship this summer for $149. There’s more information here.
