A device is here to put your mind at ease while your kids play in or near water.


The waterproof iSwimband alerts a parent on smartphone if a child accidentally falls in water.

For swimmers, the device sits around the head and for non-swimmers, it could be worn on the wrist.

"The $99 (Rs.6,000) 'iSwimband' is the world's first wearable sensor designed to alert you with an audible or visual alarm on your smartphone or tablet (and linked speakers) if a swimmer has been submerged dangerously long, or if your non-swimmer enters the water," the company said on its website.

The bluetooth-enabled sensor in the iSwimband tracks when it comes in contact with water and sends an alert immediately to the parents.

Parents can set the number of seconds underwater before an alarm sounds.

For swimmers it could be up to 20 seconds and for non-swimmers, the alarm sounds as soon as it is submerged, media reports said.
