This GENIUS New Tech Product Is For Parents Worried About Ever Losing Their Kids
While my 11-month-old baby hasn't mastered — or done anything close to mastering — the art of walking yet, I know that milestone isn't far off. And with walking comes a whole host of fun adventures and memories to be had. But with walking, unfortunately, also comes the very real fear many parents have that their children might accidentally wander off one day.
That's why one of the latest in baby tech devices is particularly exciting. The winner of this year's Babylist Best in Baby Tech Awards at CES, Jiobit ($100, plus $13/monthly), is the leading the way in tracking technology for families. It's an incredibly small and lightweight tracking device that can be worn on a child's belt loop, shoelace, or even hidden inside of a shirt. It syncs to an adult's phone so that they can track their kid anywhere — no distance limits!
"Parents like to keep their kids close in public crowded places, and Jiobit is an extra precaution and peace of mind for them," Lindsay Slutzky, CMO of Jiobit, told POPSUGAR. But the use goes far beyond just finding peace of mind in crowded places. "Many of our users are kids and adults with a special need, and for them this type of tech is a must have. Many children with autism have a tendency to [run away], so this can be a life saver."
