LG is set to launch another wearable device tomorrow but this time the new wearable is designed for kids. The LG KizON lets you keep track of your kid’s location on a smartphone or tablet via GPS and Wi-Fi.
The LG KizON smart wristband has a One Step Direct Call feature that allows parents to communicate with their children as well as allow their kids to dial a pre-configured phone number. The feature also allows the parents to listen through the built in microphone.
Parents can also pre set the device to provide location alerts periodically via the LG KizON reminder. LG said that the 400 mAh battery on the LG KizON can work for 36 hours. The LG KizON will be available in blue, pink and green. Pricing TBA.
“Children as well as the elderly are ideal customers for wearable technologies,” said Dr. Jong-seok Park, president and CEO of LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company. “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.”
