Using tech to safeguard kids around the pool.   I’m Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear.    A company called Aquatic Safety Concepts is out with a new Bluetooth wearable gadget called the iSwimband.   It initially works only with iOS devices and can be set up to alert parents when a child either gets wet at all or has been submerged for twenty seconds.    Co-founder Dave Cutler….says add-ons can make the system more flexible…

“For instance you can pick up one of the waterproof, Bluetooth speakers which you can leave right by the pool without a concern and if there was an event the Bluetooth speaker would sound the alert.”

If the Bluetooth connection is dropped, you’ll get a false alarm.   As many as 8 iSwimbands, can be monitored at a time.   The battery, which is not replaceable, should have a lifespan of about 750 hours of swimming.   The price…about 80 dollars or 50 dollars more for a two pack.   There’s more info at   You can find us at   I’m Fred Fishkin.
