Kingii is lightweight and can be worn in and around water. Inside the device is a CO2 cylinder that is easily replaceable. You can use Kingii time and time again. If you love swimming, surfing and the water, you will love Kingii.
The Kingii Wearable provides additional buoyancy, but cannot replace a life vest.
Please read our security advice carefully.
I invented the Kingii Wearable because I had a very good friend who died from drowning. Even the most experienced swimmer can experience a water emergency, and my friend paid the price for being unprepared.
I learned that my friend was not the only one who needed something to save him from the dangers of water activities. More than 372,000 people across the world drown every year.
That is why I invented Kingii, the smallest inflatable in the world. Although this wristband cannot replace a life vest (read our security advice carefully), it can give you additional buoyancy. Please support us - we need you to spread the word to make the water a safer place.
