kidsport GPS is the newest child tracking solution hitting the market. The waterproof sports band allows parents to keep track of their children using a cell phone, iPad, or computer. It was created by three Midwestern dads—Brian Sullivan, Eric Long, and Jason Hicks—after one of them had a frightening experience when his daughter went missing at the beach.
“During a group family vacation, one of our daughters wandered off on the beach and was ‘missing’ for an excruciating two and a half hours. We all looked at our phones and thought if only we could track our child like you can track a missing phone. And the idea for kidsport GPS took root,” said Sullivan.
kidsport GPS features an alert button a child can press when in need, geo-fencing that lets parents set outdoor perimeters and receive notification if the child goes out-of-bounds, and removal alert when the band is taken off or cut in two. The GPS tracking band retails for $129 and is currently available to preorder.
