Keep Tabs on your Kids around the Pool with iSwimband
As wireless tech gets better, we’re finding new ways to put it to use. Smartbands are a natural fit for wireless ideas and a new gadget called the iSwimband has caught our attention as it’s a new way to keep tabs on your toddler around the pool.
Swimming pools and summer go hand and hand, but water can be just as dangerous as it is fun — especially with children around. The iSwimband is a new device that can help alleviate parents fears around water, and allow everyone to have a little bit more fun in the sun. Just in case you’re wondering, you don’t have to wear it on your head, so don’t worry about your child become an outcast at the community pool.
It’s hard to keep an eye on one kid, much less dozens of them, and when you throw several of the little beasts together near a pool of water, things can quickly get out of hand. If your child is wearing one of the bands, you can get buzzed via Bluetooth when your kid enters the water, and it will alert you if they’ve been under too long. That means no more sneaking in the pool immediately after lunch, and you can forget about “dunking” little Bobby or Susie in the pool too much. Sorry kids…
As the name implies, the iSwimband is only works with iOS at this time, which is understandable, but puzzling in a day and age where Android rules the roost. If you own an iPhone and want to pick up the iSwimband, it will set you back $99, and you can snag one at the link below.
