Touted as the world's smallest communication device, VIVOplay by Evado Filip is a three-in-one gadget that is designed to keep parents and their children in touch. Designed to be worn as a watch, the device was inspired by Evado Filip founder and CEO Sten Kirkbak. After losing (and eventually finding) his son in a mall back in 2009, he realized that there was a market for a device marrying GPS, Wi-Fi and cellular capabilities in a stylish design.

Although people can argue that regular phones offer this and more, in the hands of young children they are not as helpful while raising a whole slew of other concerns. VIVOplay by Evado Filip, on the other hand, is completely controlled by parents to ensure it is used for the right reasons. Stats for 3-in-1 Communication Devices Trending: Older & Buzzing
