With all of the fitness and health technology on the market, it was about time there was one created that targeted the well-being of children; enter Teddy the Guardian. It is chock full of electronics and sensors designed to measure heart rate, blood pressure amongst other important medical data. In a way, Teddy the Guardian will help prepare children for the quantified lifestyle their parents themselves are starting to enter.

Designed by Croatia-based firm IDerma, Teddy the Guardian connects to parents' smartphones via Bluetooth in order to relay their kid's vital signs. It "can also provide long-term data on background health stats to physicians," as pointed out by Fast Company.

Teddy the Guardian just received FDA approval to be outfitted with the necessary medical tech.
