This new wearable was designed with pre-school and primary school children in mind. It allows their parents to easily track their children's whereabouts using a tablet or smartphone.

One day after announcing worldwide availability of the G Watch smartwatch, South Korean tech giant LG unveils a new wearable, namely the KizON wristband.  This accessory for kids "offers parents a convenient way to keep track of their young children’s whereabouts."

LG KizON features both GPS and WiFi connectivity to provide location information for parents in real time and has the following specs:

  • Memory/Storage: 64 MB RAM; 125 MB ROM
  • Connectivity: 2G/3G, WiFi, GPS
  • Battery/Autonomy: 400 mAh; up to 36 hours
  • Size: 1.37X2.17X0.55 inches
  • Colors: Blue, Pink, Green

Next to providing location information to the parents' smartphones and tablets, the KizON wristband allows quick dial of a pre-configured phone number thanks to the One Step Direct Call feature.

The wearable can also be configured to provide location alerts at specific times of the day and automatically calls a pre-configured number when the kid fails to respond a call within ten seconds.

LG KizOn is both stain- and water-resistant and is constructed of eco-friendly polythiourethane (PTU). Availability and pricing information will be announced locally in the near future.
