(NEW YORK) -- LG has come up with just the thing for helicopter parents: the KizON.
The new plastic wearable wristband allows parents to track their child’s movements and listen-in on what’s going on.
Using Wi-Fi and GPS, KizON’s one-step direct calling feature gives children the ability to call home with a single button -- and vice versa. If the child doesn’t pick up within 10 seconds, the device will automatically answer, letting mom and dad listen in on what’s going on in the background.
The wristbands go on sale in South Korea Thursday and LG plans to introduce KizONs in North America and Europe later this year.
