LG KizON is a wearable location tracker for your children


It looks like LG plans on rapidly expanding into the wearables market. The company has just announced a new wearable device meant specifically for young toddlers — the LG KizON. The device does not feature any kind of a screen and is mainly meant as a tracking device so that parents can always know where their child is.

The wearable will send out location reports using GPS and Wi-Fi co-ordinates throughout the day to a children’s parents. Pressing the only physical button on the watch, marketed as the ‘One Step Direct Call Button’, will allow the child to call a pre-specified parent’s number. It works the other way around as well with the watch automatically accepting a call from parents if their child does not respond within 10 seconds.

Though irrelevant here, the KizON sports 64MB of RAM, 128MB of ROM, a 400mAh battery for up to 36 hours of battery life and would be available in a trio of colors including Blue, Pink and Green.

The device is all set to go on sale in South Korea from tomorrow with expanded availability in North America and Europe planned for the third quarter of this year. There was no mention of the price of the device with LG stating that they would be announced closer to its local availability.
