All might have seen in many Bollywood movies or in real life at some exhibitions, amusement parks, or crowded places that announcements are being done continuously about losing their children in the crowd. Unless like movies, many will not end-up by meeting their lost kids after 20 or 30 years. In this fast growing world, people are conscious of their belongings but sometimes fails to track their lost one. Unlike in the case of kids, parents are more conscious for their kids but it’s really hard to keep an eye on them for entire 24×7. If kids are late from school or from playing ground, parents start worrying and will search their kids all the way in the neighborhoods.
There have been many technical solutions for this problem like giving a phone and GPS tracker device to their kids to carry which is not much effective all the times. All these stuffs are quite expensive and vulnerable to misuse of devices. One best solution is given by a Delhi based company Fitnano and that is “KidFit watch phone a cheap wearable to track your child’s every move.”
KidFit watch phone overview in brief:
Fitnano – An Indian company that provides safety wearables for kids through the working phenomenon of IOT (Internet Of Things) has launched few products whose motto is to ease the life of parents.
Fitnano is about to launch KidFit watch phone – a cheap wearable to track each and every movement of the child anywhere across the globe. This watch consists of SIM slot for inserting a SIM and its location can be tracked by smartphone using an app that is yet to be released by Fitnano.
Tarun Shekhar, one of the founders of the Fitnano in an interview with Gadgets 360 exhibited a demo of this product, and said that it will be launched the first week of June. Tarun Shekhar said that they wanted to make this product in India but could not find any company that can manufacture within a competitive price, so they are making it in China. The KidFit watch phone is perfect fit for children and it comes with a LCD display, and four buttons. ‘Mom’ and ‘Dad’ are the two buttons on one side while ‘Power’ and ‘SOS’ button on the other. This phone watch comes in four different colours.
It operates through an app available for free to download for your IOS or Android smartphones – explains Shekhar and then sync the Kidfit watch with your smartphone by which you can easily track the location of Kidfit watch phone in your smart phone.
This free app is also configurable for watch which helps you to save numbers to dial for Mom and Dad key buttons on the gadget. The coolest thing is you can even enable an alert to set a timely response of location in your phone ranging from once a minute or once an hour depending on your necessity.
Tarun Shekhar also said that if the polling of location is obtained once in half an hour, then the battery will support up to 72 hours. The Kidfit watch phone is to be charged with a regular Micro-USB cable.
It’s working is pretty simple, the children wears the Kidfit watch consisting of Micro SIM that the parents insert in the watch to be connected through their smart phones. The connection is established between the SIM in the watch and the software installed in smartphone through 2G data connection via GPS tracking system. The same micro SIM can also be used to calling their parents by the kids apart from tracking locations.
The speaker which is quite loud enough is embedded in the band of the wrist watch and the mic is on other side to have a normal phone call. The call list can be even updated in the white-list to be called to the wearable from the selected phone numbers. It also blocks other users who are not in the white list.
As the whole process is controlled by an app installed in the smartphone, there is no option to alter the settings through the Kidfit watch which is a measurable safety precaution just in case, kids start to play with it.
The buttons on the watch are programmed in such a way that, when a kids long presses the Mom and Dad button, it initiates the call to the phone number in the white-list. The SOS button will call both Mom and Dad simultaneously and sends an emergency alert with its location tracked.
Shekhar also said that you can dial the number of the Kidfit watch phone and make a spy call. In such a case the watch doesn’t ring but it just connects a call and also makes the speaker off. By this you can hear your children and can make sure about their situation. Another attractive feature of this gadget and app is, a safe zone where selected locations can be predefined, for instance, if the kid is playing in the surroundings, it is termed as the safe zone and when kid crosses the location, an SMS alert is sent to the parents.
There are many devices that offer these features but are quite expensive and availability is less in India. The new Kidfit phone watch gadget would be available for just INR 3500. You can preorder now for Rs 299 and pay the remaining amount later.
