About this project

“The Paxie kids wearable does so much it’s hard to keep count.” Popsugar.com

“[The SAFE Kids Paxie Band] is definitely on my radar and I am sure other parents will want to learn more soon too!” GearDiary.com

“As well as the location features, the band also monitors ambient temperature to help prevent heat stroke and there are heart-rate and activity tracking sensors built in as well, making it easy to keep track of how active a child has been.”Wareable.com

Two years ago, when we began the PAXIE™ project, we had no idea the kind of impact it would have on people, and how important it would become to our team, and to fans all over the world that are eagerly awaiting the arrival of PAXIE™ 2.0. We get messages from parents every single day telling us how PAXIE™ will change their lives, giving them the peace of mind they need.

"I cant wait for PAXIE™ 2.0! My special needs child often wanders off, so having a PAXIE™ would be a life changer for my husband and I." Frankie O, Michigan

PAXIE™ was designed to be the most advanced, feature-rich child safety wearable in the world. We know that modern parenting comes with its unique challenges. And it’s unique joys. We get that it’s difficult to foster an adventurous lifestyle for your children to explore, discover and grow while keeping your peace of mind knowing that they’re safe. Are they getting enough time outdoors? Are they getting enough exercise? Are they benefitting from a sense of independence and autonomy? Is this even possible nowadays?

Our answer is YES! Welcome to PAXIE™ 2.0

What if you could keep an eye on your kids without hovering constantly over their shoulders? You know they’re safe and they are free to run around, roam about, explore, discover and just… be kids. Continuing to be the most feature-rich GPS children’s safety wearable on the market, PAXIE™ from SAFE Family Wearables allows them to do just that. PAXIE™ lets you know precisely where your kids are, how they are feeling, and what their environment is like with a single glance at a smartphone app. PAXIE™ alerts you instantly when things change.

 

Right from the start it was important for our team to not just build the most advanced family safety device in the world, but to build a lifestyle. PAXIE™ is all about discovery, play, exercise, and most importantly parent's peace of mind. That is why, along with the PAXIE™ wearable, that is jam packed with features, we also built a micro-community called The PAXIE™ Portal, where parents all over the world can connect, share experiences, read amazing content from professionals from many different disciplines: pediatricians, child therapists, educators, play experts, chefs,…the list goes on, and truly embrace the ideal of “it takes a village to raise a child.”

We truly believe in that philosophy. It is incredibly difficult to do the most important job in the world, being a parent, alone. It is also very difficult to build the worlds most advanced child wearable alone.  Our amazing team of engineers, designers and developers, who have worked tirelessly to bring PAXIE™ to life, could not have made this happen without the help of the PAXIE™ Mommy Council. Our Mommy Council is a dedicated group of hundreds of moms that gave constant input, feedback and ideas through a private social network, to ensure we built a product that not only kids, but parents would love. 

PAXIE™ was conceived as a means to keep kids safe – to allow them to explore and let kids be kids. But you’ve let us know that “safe” has different meanings to everyone. SAFE from harm? SAFE from anxiety? SAFE from ill-health? How about SAFE from it ALL? We at SAFE Family Wearables listened and realized that safety wasn’t measured with a single metric.

EXPLORE THE LIST OF SOME OF THE AMAZING FEATURES OF PAXIE™

GPS - We use the latest GPS technology for ultimate accuracy and coverage in over 140 countries around the world. Tag and save locations, get a location history, define boundaries...

HEART RATE MONITORING - Your child's well being is your primary concern.  Get a read on their heart rate at a moments notice.

ACTIVITY MONITORING - Is your child active during the day, or is the baby sitter leaving him in front of the TV while she texts her friends? Your child needs to go out and play, be active and explore.

AMBIENT TEMPERATURE MONITORING - How many times do we need to read another story of a child who was left in the backseat of a hot car? Now you will know at all times exactly what kind of environment your child is in.

WATER SUBMERSION ALERTS - If the band gets submerged in water, you will know about it, immediately.

EXTENDED BATTERY LIFE - PAXIE™ offers a whopping 36 hour battery life, making sure you have more then enough time between charges.

CHILD-PROOF SAFETY LATCH - It takes two people to take PAXIE™ off your child. If PAXIE™ is removed you are notified, along with the GPS position of where it was removed.

ERGONOMIC BRACELET - The bracelet is made from a soft-touch, hypoallergenic polyester, ensuring your children have the most comfortable experience. We took all the distraction off the bands… no buttons, no lights, no screens…just fun bright colors to match their outfits.

INTERCHANGEABLE FASHION COVERS - . The fun interchangeable fashion covers are made from an antibacterial plastic, with enough designs to keep the most discerning youngster satisfied.

Now you have an opportunity to be a part of the PAXIE™ story. We are excited to move into a new round of design and improvements that you, our PAXIE™ Parents, have requested. PAXIE™ 2.0 is ready to be born. Just one small push will get us through new testing and certification and your generous contributions will speed along the final stages of development of the new design, the enhanced features, and the new and improved PAXIE™ Portal design. Help us put PAXIE™ on the wrists of children everywhere, giving more parents peace of mind and letting kids do what they do best… be kids! 

Thank you!

Sincerely,

Merle, Jen, Evan & the SAFE Family Wearables Team

Risks and challenges

Building the worlds most advanced child safety wearable has unique challenges. There are complexities that need to be solved that include GPS connectivity and reception, band ergonomics (making sure we are able to fit all of the sensors and electronics into a small enough design to keep it comfortable and slim enough to wear), develop advanced mil-spec software that keeps tight control over the safety of the important information PAXIE™ monitors and gain both FCC and PTCRB certification.

We have spent the better part of 2 years asking, exploring, discovering, tinkering, building, testing, learning, rebuilding, and learning some more. We have come incredibly far, overcome many hurdles, and solved many problems. Our original design, the first PAXIE™, gave us incredible insight, a lot of data and incredible foundation to build PAXIE™ 2.0 on.

We are cellular engineers, software developers, product and packaging designers, IoT and wearable developers, social media managers, and early childhood educators, but above all else, we are parents. We know how important PAXIE™ 2.0 is to families.
