The device makes use of GPS and Wi Fi with real time location information and thus, parents can monitor their child’s location via smartphones or tablets.

The new KizOn has the One Step Direct Call technology through which parents can easily communicate with their children. The One Step Press Button is also designed to allow children to dial a pre-configured phone number which can be changed anytime.

The battery life of the device is said to be 36 hours, the device is also designed to send out an alert when the battery falls below 25 percent.
