On health: 5 gadgets for the smallest

    In the wake of the popularity of wearable electronics, some manufacturers remembered the children. For them, of course, they have already invented a lot of useful (and “useful”) things, but now they are moving into a new quality. In this post I have collected some noteworthy ideas and devices already on sale.

    There is not a word about tablets and mobile phones for children, since there are too many similar devices. The post is about the activity and safety of babies from 0 to 13 years.



    Let's start with the smallest. That is, from infants. As the father of a six-month-old girl, I would have liked a device called Sproutling, although I would not have left it on my leg for long - consider me paranoid, but I would be afraid for blood circulation, no matter how soft this silicone bracelet is.

    The system for monitoring the condition of the child includes a bracelet, stand and, of course, an application on a smartphone. The intelligent system is capable of self-learning and forecasting. A total of 17 parameters are tracked, among which the baby’s heart rate and ambient temperature.

    The device is not afraid of water, which is very important in the case of a baby.



    And this diadem was called ISwimband. It looks silly, but the benefits are obvious if you have one or more children. Because it’s hard to keep track of the child who is running, and if you can relax at least a little in the apartment due to lack of water and cars, it is important to be on the alert at sea or in the pool. This is the purpose of the bandage: as soon as it falls under water for a certain number of seconds, you will immediately receive an alert and run to the baby.


    The set consists of a sensor that is inserted into a headband and bracelet (included), as well as from the application. Such a set will cost $ 80.


    LG KizON

    Famous manufacturers also do not stand aside. Although in the case of LG KizON innovation is not necessary to talk about: it's just another bracelet for children. A little bulky, but with enough features. The main thing is for the kids to like it.

    The 3G, GPS and Wi-Fi modules allow real-time tracking of a child’s presence using a smartphone. The speaker, in turn, will allow you to tell the child something. A 400 mAh battery should last for 36 hours.


    Available in three colors: green, blue and pink.


    X-Doria KidFit

    There are a lot of fitness trackers for adults now. But what about the children? For them there is KidFit - it is forced to perform physical activity through the gamification of the process. A day you need to score a hundred points, for which you need to complete the tasks that parents put on a smartphone.

    The battery lasts for a week, the gadget is protected from water. Soon the device will go on sale at a price of $ 50.

    The minus of the gadget is the lack of GPS, so this is a regular fitness tracker, not able to track the location of the child.



    For children a little younger - from 4 to 7 years old - there is another activity tracker. Leapband has 50 built-in entertainment games. The kid will spend the accumulated points on opening new animals in the device.

    Sales of the device should begin this month.
