True to their name, SAFE Family Wearables is launching a new device that kids can wear to help keep them safe while also looking fashionable enough to not get stuffed into a locker at school. The SAFE Kids Paxie Band does a whole bunch of neat things like monitor your kid’s heart rate, ambient temperature, activities, and even location with built-in GPS technology.

The name comes from the Latin word “pax,” which means peace, and the goal of the band is too give busy parents peace of mind. Even attentive parents can’t keep their eyes on their kid 24/7, so the band is designed to alert you to a variety of potential dangers through an accompanying mobile application for both Android and iOS devices. If your kid’s heart rate spikes or drops too low, or their temperature increases or decreases to a suspicious point, you’ll be alerted through the app. You can also set a boundary for your child and you’ll be notified when and if the GPS detects your child crossing that boundary.

The SAFE Kids Paxie Band is available for pre-order now for a scheduled shipping window of May 2015. $175 will get you two bands, a charger, a USB cable, and three months of data service. After that, the service will cost you $9.99 a month.

SAFE Family launches fashionable safety-wearable for kids at CES 2015
GPS monitoring, boundary setting, ambient temperature warnings, activity tracking and heart rate features put parents at ease, all simply monitored via a mobile application

Los Angeles, CA January 4, 2015 — SAFE Family Wearables today launches the SAFE Kids Paxie Band, a fashionable GPS-enabled wearable device designed for children, with an accompanying mobile management application. The SAFE Kids Paxie Band measures ambient temperature, GPS location, heart rate, boundary settings and activity tracking in order to give peace of mind to busy, on-the-go families. The SAFE Kids Paxie Band, whose name is derived from pax, the Latin word for peace, will be introduced and available for demos at the SAFE Family Wearables booth at CES 2015 (#74438).

Day after day, we hear stories of tragic accidents happening to children, often occurring while they are away from their parents, said Merle Lee Freeman, Founder of SAFE Family. My mission in creating this wearable was to come up with a device that would be fashionable and fun for children while allowing their parents to keep a pulse on their safety while they are apart. The Paxie band also tracks activity to encourage healthy and active lifestyles.

The SAFE Kids Paxie Band comes in several sizes and is designed for children ages 18 months to 12 years of age. Features include:
GPS and boundary setting – users can check the location of their child at any time via the Safe Mobile App or online dashboard and will receive a notification when the child leaves a pre-set boundary

Ambient temperature — with cases of children suffering from heatstroke or infants/toddlers accidentally left behind in cars making the news each year, the SAFE Kids Paxie band notifies the parent if the temperature around the band becomes excessively high or low

Heart Rate the band monitors the wearers heart rate for sudden spikes associated with allergic reactions or panic attacks

Activity Tracking – tracks steps to encourage active lifestyles and exercise

Interchangeable, water-resistant bands – fashionistas aged 18 months to 12 years will be able to select from a variety of colors and patterns

Extended battery life the battery life is an impressive 36 hours and can be charged via a micro-USB cable

Mobile Management parents can track their kids via a mobile application available for Android and iOS as well as through an online dashboard
