Now let’s be honest about the I’m watch which was a big disaster and we were not looking forward to anything from the folks but this time they have something which is only slightly better than the last device. This year at the MWC, they have come up with the ‘i'm Tracer’ which can at least be considered useful.
This can be considered an evolution from the last GPS tracker which the company introduced before and the device falls somewhere between the category of a GPS module and a GSM radio. The device will launch this summer and the Italian company claims that this will help you keep a track of your little kids and this sounds a bit too familiar.
The hardware has not been finalized as yet but whatever we have seen till yet seems to be a bit clunky mostly because of the battery which has been hiding inside. The device is said to last for three days which is longer than what you can get out of the OG Galaxy Gear.
The absence of a display on the device is quite disappointing and the device looks like a plain faceless bracelet. But what impresses us here is the iOS and Android companion app. A reality mode can be fired up which will display the location of your kids as a glowing blue beacon over a live image from your phone's camera. Though the image is highly priced at somewhere between €140 and €160 but nothing seems too expensive when it comes to a child’s safety.
