Kiddable Tech is booming these days. More and more companies are waking up to the potential of child tracking wearables. We have written about this area of development for a while, including coverage on brands like Moochies,  KidFitHoko and AmbyGear to name a few. FashNerd has even started a category on it called DinkyNerds. If there is one thing we love most about these kiddables, it is that the tech that the device comes with is very discreet. Which is a big bonus because your invisible apron strings will give your little monster the kind of freedom that some children can sometimes crave.

The children’s tracker is carrying 2G and GPS connectivity on board and aims to give parents peace of mind. Designed for kids between the ages of 5 – 9 years old, the device is capable of storing 10 contacts for text messaging and 5 contacts for making outgoing calls. The GPS connectivity extends to location monitoring on the companion smartphone app and sounds off an alert when the kid leaves a predetermined safe zone. The  ‘CareTime’ watch is available in two colors and packs a battery life of around four days.

The watch is going to be on sale in April 2016. Information on the price has not yet been disclosed.
