hereO are currently crowd funding for a GPS watch/tracker specifically designed for kids. Their design, already in final testing, is the world's smallest GPS watch specifically designed with children in mind. It has a built in roaming SIM card that works in over 140 countries and the subscription is a very generous $5 (3.20) per month.

Using the smartphone app (iOS, Android, HTML5 web app) parents can track live locations of their children and receive alerts for preset locations, for example "arrived at school", "arrived at home" etc. The hereO watch also has a panic alert button which sends their location and a message to those who use the tracking app for that child. The watch also features a tamper alert so if the watch gets removed then family members will be notified about it.

The app can be used to track other people using the app as well as those using the watch so it is a complete family-tracking solution.

Early adopters can pick up a watch from their Indigogo page for just $99 (61), which includes a 6 month subscription, and these will ship from July 2014. The RRP on release in September 2014 will be $149 (95).

I've ordered/contributed for this. I've been wanting something like this for a while but the monthly fees are what put me off. Not only is this relatively cheap for the hardware, the 3.20/month subscription is the main selling point for me.
