Starting November 22, AT&T customers can purchase FiLIP for $199.99.

My daughter has a tendency to get distracted and wander a little. Last year she got lost at The Children’s Museum in Portland and I about had a heart attack. THEN she wandered off at the Portland Zoo, even though there were 5 adults guarding the area they were playing (the gopher hole room). She knows to find another mommy when she can’t find me (see Tips For Keeping Your Child Safe for more ways), but I just WISHED I had known what direction she was going.
With the FiLIP watch I can now know where she is at all times. All I have to do it press a little button on my FiLIP app and get an instant GPS update on her. Thankfully I haven’t had to actually use it yet but I am sure with her wandering creative mind I will. I can even call her, or she can call me – she just needs to hold the big red button down and the watch will dial my number and connect me to her. This is an excellent device for keeping your children safe!
Designed for children ages 5 through 11, FiLIP combines GPS, Wi-Fi, and AT&T’s wireless network into a colorful watch that can be worn to school, the playground, and everywhere in between. For just $10 per month as part of an AT&T Mobile Share or standalone plan, parents have unlimited two-way voice calling so that they can talk or direct message with their children at any time.
Parents can program up to five trusted contacts with whom the child can communicate. FiLIP also allows parents to set SafeZones, triggering a notification if the child enters or leaves a designated area, and features an intelligent emergency procedure to locate the child and put them in touch with family if needed.
