BuddyTag –  a revolution in kid safety.

2014-08-04 03.34.38If you are a parent you have no doubt experienced at least once that heart stopping feeling of panic when you lose sight of your child for even half a second.

The fear of knowing you are going to a crowded theme park, airport or event and you need to hold your children tight. Now – thanks to a new perfectly thought out gadget those fears can be alleviated.

The BuddyTag is a simple device that uses Bluetooth technology to keep track of the child wearing it and updating their parent on their smartphone app. The free app is currently available on iTunes for iPhone 4S, iPhone 5, 5C, 5S, fourth generation iPAD, iPAD mini, iPAD Air, Samsung Galaxy S3, S4, S5, Note2 and Note3 with Android 4.3 and newer.

The distance can be set so that if the child moves a certain distance away from the parent a notification is immediately sent and alarm can be triggered.

The BuddyTag and app is extremely easy to use and can be set up quickly and effectively.

The wristband is aesthetically pleasing and stylish making it fun to wear for a child. It is available in various colour themes. It is simple and easy to put on a child and has multiple safety features.

Features include a personal ID in the wristband where you write your child’s name and contact number to help you reunite, and a panic button a child can use in case they can’t find you or have an emergency. The parent gets a panic message to their smart phones immediately. There’s an email setting you can use to receive notifications of the locations your child was last seen. There is   also the main use of the BuddyTag, which alerts you if your child goes out of range.

This of course does not take over from watching your child, but is there as a back up and reassuring device.

Once you have experienced the BuddyTag you won’t want to leave the house without it.

Key features include:

  • Proximity Alert System- When kids are out of proximity an alarm will sound on your phone to alert you. Customize the range according to the size of the venue.
  • Panic Button- Located on the wristband, kids can press the button to alert their parents they are in danger.
  • Email with Location- Allows parents who have kids on field trips or with a babysitter to view when and where they were last tracked by the app.
  • Multiple Connections- Pair several BuddyTags to one phone and customize the name of each to identity the “buddy” you are monitoring.

BuddyTag is available in 2 different styles (Silicone,Terrycloth, ) and over five colour combinations. Each wristband with a Bluetooth tag retails for £44.99
