Protective Parent Smartwatches
AT&T Will Offer a Child-Tracking Filip Smartwatch to Customers

AT&T is riding the smartwatch wave and will begin offering the FiLIP Smartwatch to its customers. However, the smartwatch isn’t exactly meant to be used by tech carnivores. No, the FiLIP Smartwatch is targeted at parents who want to be able to keep in contact with their kids at all times. The watch is part-GPS locator and part phone. FiLIP can store and call/message up to five emergency contacts and the watch’s location (and thus your child’s location) can be monitored.

All of this child tracking comes in a discrete package that is meant to be kid-proof. AT&T is usually first in line when it comes to new technology, it was the first U.S. carrier to offer the iPhone, which makes you wonder if child-monitoring smartwatches like the FiLIP Smartwatch are the next big thing.
