A new watch was shown at CES last week that allows parents to track their kids with GPS. The watch is not attractive to my eyes and looks like a cheap device you would get from a local discount store.

However, the watch hides inside a GPS chip that allows parents to track their kid's movements. The device is called the Num8 and retails for £149. The Num8 comes from the firm Lok8u.

Parents can ping the watch to get a real-time locations and up to date movements along with coordinates. An alarm can be set to alert parents of kids travel outside of a pre-defined area. If removed from the wrist the watch sends a text message to a pre-defined number with the location of the watch. A monthly service fee of £5 is required.
