Panda float / Wareable Product + Lifesaving

Panda float
Panda float

Panda float is an intelligent lifebuoy that can be attached to children’s neck to detect irregular heart rhythms while swimming. It will inflate automatically when the child is drowning, and parents can also use their smartphone to trigger the lifebuoy. They will receive a warning message at the same time, which can help them locate faster to reduce the time between discovering and rescuing. Panda float can also record regular heart rate, calories consumption, and fatigue level. As Panda float collected data from users, it becomes more accurate.
