I experienced the worst panic of my life when--in 2015--my 6-year-old son got lost in a crowded park. It took me 30 minutes to find him. As a parent, I’ve always been concerned about my kids' safety and this event left me feeling like I needed to do more.
My search for wearable tracking solutions made for kids came up way short, I only found subpar products that were bulky, had terrible battery life, and were poorly designed.
I created Jiobit with child safety in mind and as word started to spread, different types of caregivers started asking about us; parents of dogs and cats, guardians of the elderly, and parents of adults with special needs.
I believe no caregiver should experience that panic. "Peace of mind" is why Jiobit exists.
