Ambit Networks has created a watch for today’s technologically driven kids that will entertain children while providing parents with peace of mind. AmbyGear allows kids to access educational games and activities that reward them for exercise and punctuality. The GPS function allows parents to ensure the safety of their children while kids gradually learn responsibility and gain a sense of independence. Using an iOS or Android app, parents can decide how their children use the smart watch and will be alerted if the kids have exceeded a safe distance outside their safe area boundaries.
Founder and CEO, Patrick Muggler is proud of the product and excited about the benefits for parents and children. Muggler explains, “AmbyGear drives good behavior by teaching kids where to be, how to behave, and it provides a system to reward kids for doing what their parents expect them to do.” AmbyGear can connect to Google calendar so kids are able to check their daily schedule right from their watch. For example, if a child leaves the house on time to head to school, the watch will monitor the time the child left the house and the time he or she arrived at school and reward points for good behavior. Parents are also able to send text messages to the watch and receive short messages back without any wireless data service subscription.
Kids will love the entertainment features of AmbyGear. Ambit Networks has included educational games in the watch that will entertain kids while they are learning. AmbyGear’s designs are small and portable while offering interchangeable armbands with different colors and patterns.
Ambit Networks moved to Plug and Play in October 2014. Muggler decided to join Plug and Play for several reasons: “First, the set up is really easy. It took me one afternoon. All you have to do is come here, sign a simple contract, get insurance on the spot, which is very affordable, and you’re in. You can move in the next morning and you already have lights, Internet, furniture and coffee.” He continues to get the most out of his experience at Plug and Play by attending monthly events and meetups. At Plug and Play, “I have struck deals, met people I would have never have met and forged partnerships and alliances that are helping to build AmbyGear into a big company.”
