FORT MYERS, Fla — Dallas Vasquez, and his brother Anthony, say their iGPS Watch can help you keep your kids safe.

They’re not only ones who say their product is one to keep any eye on either.

StartUp Magazine recently recognized the Fort Myers headquartered company as one of the nation’s 15 most promising startups.

One of the features of the watch - a geofence. Parent can create a virtual radius around locations their child may frequent - like their home, school, or a soccer field.

If the child leaves that area, the parents receives notification on their phone.

“You’re going to know something’s wrong much faster than if they weren’t wearing a device like this”, Dallas Velasquez, CEO, says.

The two say they are working on a similar device for seniors.
