As a full blown helicopter parent, there’s no way you can put a price on keeping connected with your offspring. Who knows what they could be getting up to, out there in the wilds all alone. Never mind the bands of roving Justin Bieber fans, itching to snatch up the last remaining sanity of our loved ones, there’s also teh new mobile internets, which gives them far too much access to local pizza joint information for their own good.
But fear not, fragile parents, for help is at hand. This new GPS Mobile Phone Watch For Kids is designed specifically to keep your young ones tethered to your virtual wrist at every hour of the day until they’re 35 years old and out of the basement. The mobile phone part of the product is a standard quad band unit, with Bluetooth for using a handsfree headset, and there’s a feature to store up to 4 parent/guardian preset quickdial phone numbers in case of emergency.
The big deal however is the integrated GPS tracking which sends the location of the child on demand from the remote parent. Perfect for finding out why little Johnny is not at his weekly ballet class. The parent can also set up 6 pre-determined waypoint presets in order to receive SMS alerts when the child enters and leaves each particular spot. Fine tune invasive monitoring doesn’t get any finer than this peeps.
The price for all this delicious control is $79.94/£50.93, which doesn’t include the necessary training for how to handle the penetrating questions.
