Location tracking devices are seeing increased adoption, paralleling other trends in smart tech and wearables. Two of the market favorites are are Shanghai based startup Eachpal, who secured US$488,000 in funding last year, and Singapore startup Watch Over Me.

One of the latest offerings to come on the radar in China is Korea-based startup Spacosa, that is behind the app ‘Famy’ and portable safety beacon ‘LINK,’ which is designed to trace the location of your family and loved ones as well as belongings. The company launched its service in China’s 16 app stores under it’s Chinese name, Baobei zai nar (translated as ‘Where is my baby?”). Within a year the app has recorded a total of 1.2 million downloads worldwide.
