No parent wants to worry their toddler has toddled away out of sight… Now the Filip, a wearable locator/watch/phone, will “keep parents and kids in touch at the push of a button.”
Filip provides you with location, voice calling, and direct messaging to your child. “The parent remains in control at all times through an app on their smartphone,” the company says, “including the designation of five trusted contacts with whom the child can communicate.”
You can also set “Safe Zones,” so if your child enters or leaves a designated area, you get an immediate notification. An intelligent emergency procedure locates the child and puts them in touch with family if needed.
AT&T is the exclusive network provider in the US, and says additional details on pricing and service plans will be available in the coming months.
