If you’re a parent, you know that safety for your children is top priority. They can get lost or hurt, and it’s difficult to be wherever they are 100% of the time. That’s where the hereO GPS watch for kids comes in to play.

The hereO is a GPS watch for kids that aims to let parents know wherever they are at all times. Just download the hereO app, sync it with the watch, and instantly keep tabs on your children, wherever they are.

There are a few nice features with the app, like the ability to receive notifications when your child enters or leaves school, or when they remove the watch. If they’re at all in trouble, it will send you a notification, and it can give you GPS directions to their current location.

The watch is water-resistant, and has a battery that will last somewhere between 24-72 hours. Also, it’s available in four “kid approved” colors - Pink Sunshine, Turquoise Delight, Red Blaze and Blue Panther.

It is currently seeking funding on Indiegogo, and needs your help. The watch will set you back $99 on the Early Bird Special, along with a free 6-month subscription of the app. After 6 months, the app subscription costs $5/month. If you wait too long, the watch and subscription jumps up to $129, so act fast! The hereO is 1/4th of the way funded, and needs to meet its goal by April 16th. And the watches are set to be delivered by July 2014, so you don’t have too long to wait.
