Filip's Sten Kirkbak on getting the "big idea" for a youth smartwatch

 

This conversation is with Sten Kirkbak of Filip Technologies. In this conversation, we hear about the terrifying experience of losing track of his son at a mall and how that led him to create the Filip smartwatch (named after his son who, thankfully, Sten found later that fateful day).

We also talk about standalone smartwatches and how they might do compared to companion smartwatches, the development of the Filip watch and more.

This conversation took place in September 2013. For more conversations like this, check out Smartwatch.FM or look for Smartwatch.FM in iTunes.
