We discovered My Buddy Tag last year when we were away. We were sitting by the pool and the girls were playing with a little boy, Ashlee asked what was on his wrist… it was a Buddy Tag. We got chatting with his parents (as you do…) and they explained that he wears it when he is swimming and it alerts them if it is under water for more than 10 seconds. Peace of mind for them after losing their niece from an accidental drowning 🙁 Also great for children who tend to wonder off. A bluetooth chip is in the wrist band and can be worn on your childs wrist, on their shoes or attached to their clothes. No GPS, so there are no monthly fees.
