Israeli-Made Bracelet Is the Latest In Kid Tracking

Israeli startup Barkid now offers a “smart bracelet” that tracks children through an app on the parent’s phone. If the child runs too far out of range, the device will alert the parent.

Though it might seem like the ultimate in helicopter parenting, Barkid CEO Eliav Elhadad told Israeli economics newspaper Globes that the idea is to “prevent tragedies.”

He said he came up with the idea after watching parents scramble to get ahold of their children during past rocket attacks on Beer Sheva, where Barkid is based.
