The smartband offers features like digital zone and locate actively to monitor a child's location and alert parents if their children wander too far.Fitness device startup ActvContent announced the launch of Sync, the company’s health, safety and fitness smartband, on Indiegogo, where the firm is offering the device for $69 in an effort to raise $50,000 in funding. The Sync is a wearable device that comes in both adult and child sizes and connects through Bluetooth with the ActvContent Sync mobile app, which is available for both Apple iOS and Google Android devices. Aimed at families, the smartband offers features like "digital zone" and "locate actively" to monitor a child's location and alert parents if their children wander too far. "While other products on the market only offer parts of a solution--whether it just monitors calories burned and sleeping habits or tracks the current location of a loved one--Sync combines the features of an activity tracker, location safety tracker and health tracker in an all-in-one solution," Andrew Xue, co-founder and president of ActvContent, told eWEEK. "Sync provides families with an easy-to-use product that monitors their well being and keeps everyone safe and connected."
In addition, a sleep tracker and a fitness tracker allow multiple family members to monitor their health, activity and set fitness goals together. The company is offering family sets of four Smartbands at a discount for $240 through Indiegogo as well.
