Limmex Emergency Watch for children

There is nothing more important to parents than the safety of their children. However, we also do not like to constantly control or even impose ourselves on them.

With a Limmex Watch your child can decide at any time when someone should be contacted. And the parents can decide what will happen at the push of the button: A call to the mother? To the father? To siblings? To the grandparents? Or to all of them, one after the other until someone answers to find out what the child requires.
