CEO, TV personality, and infomercial pioneer Kevin Harrington is bringing Yepzon technology to America, launching the wearable locator device on his “As Seen On TV” infomercial test campaign in November — just in time for the holiday season!

Yepzon is a wearable locator device that uses Bluetooth, GPS, and mobile network technologies to provide accurate location information through a mobile application for iOS, Android, and Windows Phones. The device is already available in the US at amazon.com and through Yepzon’s own website.

“I look for products that solve problems and have mass market appeal. Yepzon meets both of these criteria,” says Harrington, one of the original ‘sharks’ on the Emmy awardwinning reality show ‘Shark Tank’, where he appeared in over 150 segments in the first 2 seasons. “The moment I saw Yepzon for the first time, I knew it had the potential to be a winner.”

Yepzon is simple and easy to use; it is paired with a smartphone using NFC technology (Android & Windows Phone) or Bluetooth (iOS). Yepzon has no buttons and can be turned off via the mobile app. The device has foolproof data security, with no personal information collected by the application or device. Yepzon is also waterproof, has extremely long battery life, and features classic Nordic design.

You can use Yepzon to keep track of your kids in the backyard or at school; give elderly relatives peace of mind; locate family pets, or make sure you never lose your golf clubs by slipping a Yepzon in the bag!
