  • (1888PressRelease) August 04, 2016 - Los Angeles, CA - SAFE Family Wearables today launches a Kickstarter campaign for the 2nd generation of its Paxie Band, a fashionable GPS-enabled wearable device designed for children, with an accompanying mobile management application. The Paxie Band, whose name is derived from "pax", the Latin word for peace, is currently in its second iteration, with design and feature improvements based on feedback from 1st generation Paxie users.

    "Day after day, we hear stories of tragic accidents happening to children, often occurring while they are away from their parents," said Merle Lee Freeman, Founder of SAFE Family Wearables. "Our mission in creating this wearable was to come up with a device that would be fashionable and fun for children while allowing their parents to keep a pulse on their safety while they are apart. The Paxie band also tracks activity to encourage healthy and active lifestyles. We love hearing feedback from our community of Paxie Parents and are excited to bring the improvements they requested to the table."

    The Paxie Band comes in several sizes and is designed for children ages 18 months to 12 years of age. Features include:
    • GPS and boundary setting - users can check the location of their child at any time via the SAFE Mobile App or online dashboard and will receive a notification when the child leaves a pre-set boundary
    • Ambient temperature - with cases of children suffering from heatstroke or infants/toddlers accidentally left behind in cars making the news each year, the Paxie band notifies the parent if the temperature around the band becomes excessively high or low
    • Improved Heart Rate Monitor - the band monitors the wearer's heart rate for sudden spikes associated with allergic reactions or panic attacks
    • Activity Tracking - tracks steps to encourage active lifestyles and exercise
    • Submersion Alert - sends an alert to the parent when the band is immersed in water to ensure safety around swimming pools, hot tubs, lakes and streams
    • Interchangeable, water-resistant bands - fashionistas aged 18 months to 12 years will be able to select from a variety of stylish colors and patterns
    • Extended battery life - the battery life is an impressive 36 hours and can be charged via a micro-USB cable
    • Mobile Management - parents can track their kids via a mobile application available for Android and iOS as well as through an online dashboard

    Kickstarter Details
    The SAFE Family Wearables Paxie Band Kickstarter project will begin on Thursday, August 4, 2016 at 10am PDT. Perks include various individual Paxie Band packages, multi-packs for distributors and advertising opportunities via the Paxie website and the Paxie Portal - an online community for parents.

    "One of our first steps as an organization was to put together what we call our 'mommy council,'" explains co-founder Jen Lazarus, "a social media community of moms that would be integral to the design and development of Paxie, offering vital input and feedback and helping to define the company's product roadmap. It's SAFE Family Wearables' community-mindedness that makes Kickstarter such a perfect place to realize the next step in the evolution of the Paxie™ Band."

    Perks are intended to be fulfilled between December 2016 (for the "early bird" packages) and February 2017 for the remaining product perks.
