Product design specialist Therefore is hoping to wake up the baby monitor market with a wristwatch-style product that can be carried around the home. The consultancy collaborated with technology development firm Boardbug to create the monitor, which offers both baby and child monitoring modes. The child mode alerts parents when their child wanders from a set distance range, while baby mode allows parents to check on the sound and temperature levels in their baby’s bedroom and alerts them at feed times. The interference that let down other products is cut out, as each product has a unique code. A ‘find me’ button lets parents track their child if they wander from range. The monitor is on sale at John Lewis and Mothercare.
