The FiLIP watch is the next-generation wearable phone, smart locator and watch for kids ages 4 to 11. Is your child asking for a phone? I know mine is!
I just love this idea because it gives me a way as a parent to get in touch with my child but LIMITS the need for them to have access to the Internet. The FiLip 2 Watch offers all of this and so much more.
We all know that smartphones are incredible, but I don’t want my 7-year-old to have access to YouTube and a web browser 24/7 (and when they are not by my side).
FiLIP 2 Watch: The Wearable Phone For Kids That’s Also A Smart Locator
So, how does a child and a parent stay in contact with one another while they are apart? Meet the FiLIP 2 – the newest edition to the FiLIP watch line.
It looks like a watch, but it is so much more. Your child can MAKE and RECEIVE phone calls from up to 5 parent-set numbers.
The kids do not have control over who they can contact. You make that decision. I love this idea as well! Think about including your home and cell phone numbers, grandparents and their favorite aunt.
You can even set up “safety zones” – like a perimeter. If your child goes out of this zone, you will get a notification. There’s even messaging capabilities. Parents can send one-way text messages to their child. They have to be short and sweet – but they will get through. I love this! If you don’t want to call and just want to send a quick note, it’s nice to have this option.
FiLIP 2 Watch Features:
Voice Calling: FiLIP 2 is the ONLY wearable phone for kids certified by the FCC. Kids can make and receive calls with up to five parent-set numbers.
Smart Locator: FiLIP 2 uses a blend of GPS, GSM, and WiFi to provide the most accurate location information, indoors and out, so parents can see where their child is at all times.
SafeZones: FiLIP 2 automatically notifies parents through the app when their child enters or leaves a pre-determined SafeZone, like home or school. Parents can set up to five SafeZones for their child.
Send Messages: Parents can send short one-way text messages to their child’s FiLIP 2 to keep in touch without calling.
Time and Date: FiLIP 2 is a watch too and clearly displays the time and date.
Intelligent Emergency: When activated by the child, the FiLIP 2 emergency button triggers an automatic location beacon, ambient sound recording, and calls each of the five contacts until one is connected.
Customizable Wristband: FiLIP 2 comes in Superhero Blue or Watermelon Red and can be worn open or closed in different sizes to fit children as they grow. FiLIP 2 is interchangeable with wristband accessories in Awesome Orange and Limesicle Green.
Natalie loves her FiLIP watch — she is SO HAPPY that she can contact me wherever she is. There’s a real peace of mind knowing that I can do the same. I was able to size the watch on her wrist with ease.
Remember, this device is suitable for children between 4 and 11. The FiLIP 2 will grow with your needs.
