iSwimband is a simple device with a lofty purpose. It’s a simple band that connects via Bluetooth to a companion app, and its sole purpose is to monitor how long someone is underwater, or if a non-swimmer is in the water. While you might think your own two eyes are enough, you’re wrong, and that’s why iSwimband matters.

According to the company, drowning is the second leading cause of accidental death for children in the United States. Now that’s scary enough, but look at this article from Slate: Drowning Doesn’t Look Like Drowning. Even a diligent adult supervising kids in the water may miss the signs, and that’s why iSwimband is worth considering for aquatic activities.

iSwimband can be preordered for $124.99, and it should ship March 2014, just in time for summer!
