    Has a trigger so if you can't find your child, you can sound an alarm from the tag on your child to help locate him/her.

    Go with the wrist leash since anything "mechanical" will be better than anything "electronic".

    True, but the sight of my daughter on a physical leash - really hate myself for it...

    Goddamit, we should do a kickstarter and develop something like this that does work.

    I'm not so sure now after the reviews of the previous Bluetooth app/products, I think Bluetooth is just not reliable enough.

    The Amazon review causes me not to have too much confidence in this one, but thanks for the suggestion nobby15.

    Probably buy a few of these trackers (probably the RF types) and hope one of them actually works and is loud enough to give me an effective retrieval perimeter within 2-3 seconds.

    While none of my kids was ever put on a leash or had a tracking device I can see why parents might go for this in HK. Yes it is incredibly safe but it is also incredibly crowded and so easy to lose one of the darlings. We relied on just making sure someone was holding their hand at all times.
    The leash option is a tricky one. A parents hand gives the parent and child a great sense of comfort but the leash allows some freedom for the kid but in a controlled environment. You let them explore but only a little bit. But the concept of keeping some on a leash seems wrong as we associate it with a dog or a dominatrix , it shouldn't.

    As they grow with a clear rule set it could be possible to see a 'don't go too far ' device just adding to the arsenal of options for a parent. Rather than you must stay close or you stay on this street and we'll meet up at point X if we miss each other. If the kid goes more than say 30m from the parent their device would beep. The further away the more it beeps - getting warmer or colder. This could help give a kid a controlled sense of responsibility as they start to explore on their own. Obviously not for a toddler but a youngster.

    Anyway ignore these ramblings if you are feeling sensitive or you are / were the type to let your kids travel on minibuses / MTR on their own when they are say seven.

    There is no clear right or wrong answer as every kid is different as are their parents.
