For parents thinking about getting their child a cell phone for safety, the FiLIP smartwatch and phone hybrid may stave off that need for a few years.
FiLIP helps parents easily call and keep track of their children. Of course, the watch tells time, but it can also pin down a child's location.

Parents can program up to five numbers into the gadget, which kids can call with the touch of a button. Using the FiLIP app, parents and other pre-authorized adults can track the child's location, make calls, send texts and set "SafeZones," which are virtual radii around a specific destination. Parents select SafeZones based on the location where their child usually spends the most time, such as school. FiLIP sends a notification to parents whenever their child leaves or arrives at a SafeZone.
