AT&T today announced the FiLIP wearable device for children is now available both online and in stores. The FiLIP is a watch that includes a cell phone and GPS locator. Parents can use their smartphone to call the FiLIP and locate their kids easily on a map. The device stores up to five phone numbers that can be called by children from the FiLIP. The FiLIP can receive text messages from parents, but cannot return messages. In addition to pinpointing location, parents can also set Safe Zones in which their child is allowed to roam via geofencing. If the child leaves the Safe Zone, the FiLIP will send an alert to the parent. Last, the FiLIP includes an emergency function. If kids press-and-hold the red button on the FiLIP, it will send a text message with the child's location to the five numbers stored on the device; automatically begin recording the ambient sound around the watch; call each of the five numbers successively; and, if there's no answer at the five stored numbers, call emergency services. The FiLIP costs $199.99, but is eligible for a $100 account credit when activated as a new line of service. FiLIP plans cost $10 per month.

I can see something happening with this....

I work for AT&T and have people all the time trying to under the radar add any type of tracking service to their significant others phone. They typically try to use Family Maps but I tell them they have to install an app on all phones, plus the phone being tracked is told it's being tracked. This makes them upset and I tell them it's a safety feature not a spying feature.

However with this they could activate one of these, throw it in the truck of their car....
