Say hello to Filip, AT&T's new connected wearable device aimed at your kids. Looking a little like a children's Galaxy Gear, Filip is part smart locator, part phone and part watch, and the connected part helps parents keep a tab on where their kids are at all times and provide a means of communication.
FiLIP focuses only on the features that parents want - location, voice calling, and direct messaging to their child. The parent remains in control at all times through an app on their smartphone, including the designation of five trusted contacts with whom the child can communicate.
So, it looks fun, attaches to a child's wrist, and offers a little piece of mind. For example, a programmable safe zone can be set that will trigger an alert to your smartphone should your child leave that safe zone. It looks to be compatible with both Android and iOS, and will no doubt require some kind of additional payment to AT&T to activate it. There's no word on how much it'll cost yet, or when exactly Filip will be gracing the shelves of AT&T stores nationwide.
What do you guys think of this? Something you'd consider for your own kids?
