LG Debuts KizOn Wearable for Kids

LG today announced the KizOn, a wearable device for children. Like many kid-focused products, the KizOn is more about delivering peace of mind to the parents than it is about providing the wearer with features and functions. The KizOn uses a combination of Wi-Fi and GPS to provide parents with up-to-date location data. Parents can call the KizOn from their own smartphone to talk to the child. If the child doesn't answer 10 calls in a row, the device will automatically pick up the eleventh call and allow the parents to listen to what's going on around the KizOn. The KizOn can place calls, but only to one preprogrammed number. Parents can change the preprogrammed number at any time through the KizOn app. The KizOn will be offered in several different colors and it is compatible with a handful of accessories for personalization. LG said the KizOn will debut in Korea on July 10, followed by North America and Europe later this year. Pricing was not revealed.

Great idea!

But 10 calls? that's nearly 5 minutes of dialing if you assume 30 minutes for each call. that would mess my mind up
