LG’s Latest Wearable Device Will Help Parents Keep Tabs On Their Kids

LG KizON

The LG G Watch recently went on sale, but that wasn’t the only wearable gadget the South Korean manufacture has been working on. Their latest entry in the rapidly expanding wearable market is the KizON, a wristband that was designed to help parents keep tabs on their kids.

Equipped with GPS and WiFi, the LG KizON allows parents to track their kids by relaying accurate location information that can be viewed in real-time using an app for smartphones and tablets. A easily accessible, one step call button allows kids to call their parents with a single button press. Parents also have the ability to call their kids and listen in on what’s going on around the KizON should the child not answer the call within 10 seconds. The water and stain-resistant device is constructed of a polythiourethane material and is available in three different colors: green, blue and pink.

“Children as well as the elderly are ideal customers for wearable technologies. Wearables allow us to stay connected without the worry of losing a device or the inconvenience of having to carry a large item in a pocket. At LG, we’re committed to exploring more ways to incorporate wearable devices into consumers’ lives in line with our vision to become a leader in wearables,” – Dr. Jong-seok Park, president and CEO of LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company.

The LG KizON is already available for purchase in South Korea and is expected to reach North America and Europe sometime in the third quarter. You can learn more about the LG KizON at the source link below.
