LG tethers kids with KizON wearable

Location tracking, phone calls and resistance to water

LG has developed a wearable called KizON designed to track the location of children. A key feature is the wearable’s ability to initiate a phone call to a predetermined number — such as a parent — at the press of a button.

The KizON wearable features a speaker which is automatically enabled when a call from a preconfigured number goes unanswered for ten seconds. Preconfigured numbers can be changed by using a tablet or smartphone running Android 4.1 and above.

The wearable can be set up to feed information on a child’s whereabouts at specific times throughout the day to parents. Location information is ascertained in real-time by using Wi-Fi and GPS technologies.

LG claims its KizON will last for 36 hours before needing a charge. A notification prompting a charge is pushed to a parent’s smartphone when the battery drops below 25 per cent.

The wearable is water and stain resistant and comes in blue, pink and green. LG will unveil KizON officially in South Korea on 10 July.

LG KizON specifications as per official press release:
Memory: 64MB RAM / 125MB ROM
Battery: 400mAh
Size: 34.7 x 55.2 x 13.9mm
Color: Blue / Pink / Green
Network: 2G / 3G

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.
