Parents couldn’t thank LG enough thanks to KizON, a wearable wristband which will now help parents keep track of their children whereabouts through GPS and Wi-Fi.
The roll-out is definitely a sigh for parents who have a hard time trying to track their children manually or rather have to wait home until their kids return. Designed exclusively for pre-school and primary school children, the device provides real-time location information allowing parents to monitor their children on a compatible smartphone.
Not only will the device provide location at specific times throughout the day to parents through their smartphones, but will also have their calls automatically connected if the child fails to pick, which will let parents listen through the built-in microphone.
Battery life is rated for 36 hours and parents will be alerted via their smartphones when the battery in KizON needs to be recharged. The band is constructed of eco-friendly polythiourethane (PTU) material that is water-resistant as well as stain resistant. A wide range of accessories featuring popular animation characters will be available for KizON, which comes in three attractive colors: blue, pink and green.
This comes after the Electronics Inc launched LG G watch, a fashionable jewellery powered by Android wear, Google’s new operating system which extends the Android platform to wearables. The G watch has a simple minimalist design, quick and glance-able access to useful information and seamless connectivity with other Android devices keeping users connected at all times and places.
LG is driving the evolution of mobile forward with its highly competitive core technologies in the areas of display, battery and camera optics and strategic partnerships with noted industry leaders. LG’s consumer-centric products — including the flagship premium G Series models — incorporate unique, ergonomic designs and intuitive UX features that enhance the user experience.
“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.” Said Joseph Kim, LG East Africa Managing Director.
KizON is expected to be introduced in the forth quarter having already made its public debut in South Korea.
