Lok8u has created the world’s first GPS locator device specifically designed to be worn by children. The nu.m8 is a child’s digital watch which cannot be removed or deactivated without your knowledge. If this should happen an instant alert is sent straight to your phone and/or email with your child’s location. You can even set up a virtual fence as a ‘safe zone’. If your child steps outside this zone you’ll be notified via an alert to your phone. The only downside to the nu.m8 is that you have to pay a monthly subscription fee for the notification service and that it is currently only available in the UK. Would you buy a gadget like this for your child?
