Verdict: Perfect for tracking things you don't care about.
Ion Kids (as in, keep an "eye on" the kids) is a portable system that lets you keep track of up to four children, seniors, pets, or anything else that moves. Designed to help parents keep tabs on wandering children, ion Kids Starter Kit comes with a handheld base unit and one water-resistant wristag, and retails for $239.95.
The system uses RF instead of GPS and lets you specify how far the child (or children) are allowed to wander from the handheld base unit before sounding an alert on both the bracelet and the handheld unit. The handheld unit can then be used to locate the child, using a radar-like display that points the way to the AWOL child. Sounds great for busy parents at the mall, grocery store, or in crowded public places.
