A water safety alarm for children.
R1 495 for the full kit including base station and battery charger.
Where can I get it?
Order directly from Safety Turtle via email@example.com or visit www.safetyturtle.co.za. They will courier to anywhere in South Africa.
The Safety Turtle is a nifty, comfortable turtle-shaped wristband that children will enjoy wearing whenever they are outdoors or near water. The alarm sounds the minute your child’s wrist touches water, and it is loud enough to be heard from some way away. The base station comes with a battery that has a fairly long life. The carrying case is small and neat, and it’s surprisingly light, so it’s worth schlepping on holiday or to family who have pools without fences. As a last line of defence it seems like a really good idea, as children can drown so quickly.
We don’t like
The price is quite a challenge because it is an imported product. You only get one armband per set, and additional armbands for your other children are rather pricey at R425.
