FiLIP 2AT&T today announced that it will sell the FiLIP 2 beginning November 7 for $100.

The FiLIP 2 is a second generation wearable for children (aged 4 to 11) that includes a rudimentary cell phone and GPS locator.

Most of the changes to the FiLIP 2 pertain to the wearable aspect of the device. For example, the FiLIP 2 has an improved wristband that has adjustable sizing in order to make it more comfortable. The device is also more durable to withstand physical activity and it comes in more colors.

AT&T said the FiLIP mobile app for smartphones has been improved with a new user interface and a simplified set-up process. The FiLIP lets parents use their smartphone to call the FiLIP and locate their kids easily on a map. T

he device stores up to five phone numbers that can be called by children from the FiLIP. The FiLIP can receive text messages from parents, but cannot return messages. In addition to pinpointing location, parents can also set Safe Zones in which their child is allowed to roam via geofencing. If the child leaves the Safe Zone, the FiLIP will send an alert to the parent.

Last, the FiLIP includes an emergency function for calling parents and/or emergency services. FiLIP plans cost $10 per month.
