Beijing Branch of teleco China Unicom unveiled a GPS wristband smartphone, which enables parents to keep track of their little kids who are too young to use more complicated smartphones (report in Chinese).

There are only four keys on the wristband, to which parents can set four contact numbers. The product can locate the kids wearing it and update their historical tracks via short messages, Internet or apps. Kids can send SOS alerts in case of emergencies.

In addition, parents also can set a parameter within or out of which their targets can roam free. Once their kids approach the boundary, the device will send signals, and the users will receive an app notification on their mobile devices. Parents can listen to the sounds around their children to determine whether they are in a safe environment.
