 Ecoh is basically designed in a way that it is a two-way communication system between parents and children and since it is barely 2.2 inches in size, it easily gets attached to the child’s clothing with the help of a smart clip which also has the capability of detecting if the device has been removed.

Ecoh lets kids do all the fun things that kids should do while still giving parents peace of mind in knowing their children are safe.”

 You can keep making contributions on Indiegogo until November 26 and with a contribution of just $100 you will get the complete Ecoh set that includes the Ecoh unit, a proximity sensor bracelet, a proximity sensor shoe tag, and the Ecoh smartphone app. After the funding is over, the eventual retail price is going to be $299.
