Chinese software developer Sogou has long been known as the company behind the Sogou search engine and Sogou Pinyin, a popular Chinese language input application. The firm has recently jumped on the smart wearables bandwagon by launching Teemo, a smart wristband for kids.

Teemo is a brightly colored tracker for kids weighted just 55 grams. It uses 2G GSM connectivity to power its voice messaging and GPS tracking functions. The device uses a 400mAh battery, which supports three hour’s talk time on a single charge or four days on standby, and is water and dust resistant (IP64 rated).

Like most GPS trackers, Teemo locates the wearers’ location and displays their route on a connected mobile app, helping parents keep track of their kids. But it also aims to form a more effective communication channel between children and busy parents.
