When You Wish: New LEO 911-Wristwatch May Help Save Lives

Jan 07, 2013 (Close-Up Media via COMTEX) -- A new high-tech device, called the LEO, will help parents and emergency services respond to children in times of crisis, When You Wish announced.

Jason Sullivan, inventor and father of two, has patented and developed a 911-GPS emergency locator wristwatch enabled with voice communications and a panic button system that promises to change the way we think about protecting our children.

"I originally invented the LEO out of a passion to create a device that could protect our children from the impacts of abduction and predation. The outcome has evolved into a wristwatch that can literally be used by all ages for virtually any emergency situation," said Sullivan.

According to a release, the LEO watch is designed with a titanium band and optional locking mechanism, making it virtually impossible to cut through and has sensors that will notify emergency responders if an unauthorized attempt is made to remove the device. Parents have a web-based interface that they are able to use on any computer or smart phone to locate their child in seconds, a critical feature given that time is of the essence in any life-threatening situation.

Named by Inc. Magazine as "Most Likely to Succeed" and hailed by Marc Klaas, the President of KlaasKids Foundation and BeyondMissing, Inc. as "The closest thing to the Holy Grail of child protection devices as anything will ever get," the LEO has been attracting a significant amount of attention, including being featured on The Ricky Lake Show and already is widely anticipated at the upcoming CES Show in Las Vegas. The overwhelming response and support of the LEO has made Sullivan decide to go directly to the public to raise money to launch his life-saving device.

"Everything has indicated that this potentially life-saving device is being wildly accepted by the public, so we decided to reach out to the people directly to help bring the LEO to market." said Sullivan. The LEO can be found at whenyouwish.com/leo In light of the recent tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut, Sullivan said his company will donate a portion of the proceeds from the campaign to the families of the victims.

Jason Sullivan is the founder of GuardianLion Wireless and the inventor and co-developer of the LEO Wristwatch.

whenyouwish.com is an international crowdfunding website.
