Evado Filip’s VIVOPlay Lets You Track Your Child’s Location [CES 2013]


CES 2013 bug


The VIVOPlay, a new device from Evado Filip, combines a watch with a phone in order to keep your children safe when wearing the device. The VIVOPlay, which uses GPS, Wi-Fi, and GSM for location tracking, is specifically set up to help parents and their children stay in close contact in the case of an emergency.

The VIVOPlay works with a iOS and Android app to give you full control over the device’s capabilities. The parent can set up to 5 “safe zones” that define boundaries within which their children should stay. If something goes wrong and the child leaves the zone while wearing the device, the parents will be alerted to the activity.

Since the watch also doubles as phone, up to 5 approved numbers can be added to the device which the child will be able to call. The app also includes an emergency button, which, if held down for three seconds, will automatically dial the numbers of all the pre-approved contacts on the watch.

Evado Filip says that will be rolling out a trial program for the device within the coming months, and hopes to have it open for preorders in the second half of 2013. No price has been announce as of late. For more information on the VIVOPlay, check out the official website here.
