There’s a fine line between keeping a close eye on your kids and being an “overprotective” parent. Kids want to go out and have fun, and parents want to make sure they’re safe. What are families to do when those two well-meaning viewpoints collide? With Kiband, they don’t have to.
Nick got to talk with Jeff from Kiband at CES. Kiband is a smartband for kids that connects wirelessly via Bluetooth to a parent’s smartphone to prevent getting lost. Parents just use the accompanying smartphone app to designate a range in which they can monitor their child’s whereabouts. When the child nears the boundaries of this range, their band will vibrate, and the parent will be alerted. Kiband gives kids the freedom they crave and parents the peace of mind they need.
Kiband will cost between $100-$120 and is available for preorder on Kiband’s website for delivery in June or July.
