New GPS Tracking Band Gives Parents Peace of Mind

Creative dads combine technology and cool factor to develop kidsport GPS

LEAWOOD, Kan., March 12, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- A parents' greatest fear is losing their children. Over 800,000 children are reported missing each year. That's over 2,000 a day.* Countless more incidents are never reported. Losing track of your kid even for a millisecond can prompt instant fear and anxiety.

kidsport GPS is a cool, stylish sports band that allows parents to locate their kids on their cell phone, iPad or computer. It is the brainchild of three dads from the Midwest – Brian Sullivan, Eric Long and Jason Hicks.

"It always seemed that when we were on vacation, whether it was a theme park or a ski slope, one of our kids wandered off and sent us into a panic," Sullivan, said. "During a group family vacation, one of our daughters wandered off on the beach and was 'missing' for an excruciating two and a half hours. We all looked at our phones and thought if only we could track our child like you can track a missing phone. And the idea for kidsport GPS took root."

Safety features of kidsport GPS:

  • Alert Button: If your kid needs you, they simply press an Alert Button on the band to send you an immediate text.
  • Secure Latch: Taking the band off is easy for parents; it's NOT easy for somebody who shouldn't be removing the band.
  • Removal Alert: When the band is taken off, or even cut in two, you'll receive an alert letting you know. 
  • Geo-Fence Boundary Alert: You set the boundary, and the band sends you an alert if the boundary is crossed.

Parents love the safety; kids love the style. The band not only looks cool—it comes in a variety of bright, fun colors and comes in three sizes—but there's a ton of technology wrapped up inside. It is made of soft and comfortable silicone (latex-free). And best of all, it's durable and waterproof.

"We spent the last two years developing the technology and design of kidsport GPS, and now we are ready for production," Long said. "Now we need families to pre-order theirs today so that we can begin production at a price that families can afford."

Pre-orders are currently being accepted via a funding campaign at Indiegogo.com with discounted pricing starting at $129. To learn more and pre-order your kidsport GPS, visit www.kidsportgps.com Follow us on Facebook and Twitter @kidsportgps.
