Product Development


Concept: How we started

As engineers, we strive to develop technology that benefit our everyday lives. Our vision for Sync from the very beginning was just that - a device that would improve the health, safety and fitness of you and your family.

                                       


Development: Mapping it out

To bring our idea to life, we used 3D CAD software and sketches to visualize our product. We built the Sync from the bottom up. How should it look? Is it comfortable? What’s a safe material to use? These are some of many questions we addressed.


Prototype: Building it

To get an idea of how our finished product would look, we went through a 3D printing process to create our Sync prototypes using flexible plastic. 

Simultaneously, we sourced, designed and tested our electronic components and printed circuit boards. 

Through multiple hardware and software product development cycles, we were able to: extend battery life, increase Bluetooth broadcast distance, and shorten device connection times to create an intuitive, easy-to-use interface.


Production Samples: Where we are now

We have working production samples in the field.

We have successfully built an iOS app and have an Android app on the way.

                                 

Full-Scale Production: Where you come in

We need your help to fund our first production order. As early adopters, we believe you can provide critical feedback to take our product to the next level.


Your purchases will directly fund our first production order and allow us to bring all of our hard work to life. Be among the first to utilize this technology designed to improve the safety, well-being and health of your loved ones!

Frequently Asked Questions


What is the Sync Smartband?

ActvContent Sync is the first health and location safety smartband.  It provides location safety for children, to ensure that they don’t wander too far. You can also store and share critical health information, such as allergies and emergency contact information for caregivers and others in your network.

How does the Sync Smartband work?

Sync connects with our ActvContent App via Bluetooth Technology to access all of our features.  Seamlessly set safe zones and store healthcare information. Users can download the free ActvContent Sync app in the Apple iTunes and Google Play stores.  

How is Sync different from other wearable devices on the market?

Many devices on the market today only provide part of a solution. Sync was built with kids in mind. Our smartband lets you manage your entire family’s health and activity in one place, set safe zones to make sure your children don’t wander too far, and give friends, caregivers, and others in your network secure access to critical information in case of emergency.

Who can use Sync?

Sync is built for kids and the elderly with health and safety in mind. For example, you can use it to monitor the health of your elderly relatives or location of your kids. The Sync comes in two sizes: for adults and for kids.

Can other’s outside my network access my child’s information?

No, only those with your secure passcode can access the data stored in the Sync app. The device has extra protection on the hardware side to insure that only those with this password can connect. The ActvContent Sync is completely COPPA (Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act) compliant.

How long is the battery life?

Sync is equipped with a basic watch (CR2032 coin cell) battery, which is easily replaceable and lasts up to three full months depending on use. Our SmartSense technology shuts the device off when there is no movement to help conserve battery life.

My kids are very active, is Sync Waterproof?

Sync is made of hypoallergenic TPU rubber to fit comfortably on any wrist. While we wouldn't recommend diving to the depths of the Marianas Trench, Sync was built for everyday use and is water resistant.

When will Sync ship?

Our target ship date to deliver the Sync Smartband is February 2015, we have already set up our production and distribution plans to meet this goal. As with any product, there is a possibility of delay, but we have done our due diligence to make sure that the ActvContent Sync ships on time so you can start monitoring your family’s health in the beginning of the New Year.

In what countries can you use Sync?

Sync requires no data plan and can be used in any country.

Why Indiegogo?

We chose to launch the ActvContent Sync on Indiegogo because this product was made for families, and you deserve a say in this just as much as we do. We feel very confident in what we’ve created, but we still want to hear feedback from you. By launching Sync here, we can get direct feedback to fine-tune our product throughout the production process.


As the campaign continues and we hit our funding goal, we will post stretch goals created by you, the consumers. We believe that through collaboration, we can bring to life the best product possible!
