Change the way you think about automobile safety with The First Years True Fit I Alert— a revolutionary mobile-synched car seat designed to recognize potentially unsafe conditions and alert parents on their smartphone. Seamlessly built into The First Years True Fit Convertible Car Seat, the I Alert system monitors children in the seat with an easy-to-use mobile application that:


Quick and Easy Setup

The monitoring system works with most smartphones (IOS and Android) in the market today. After a quick download, you can personalize the I Alert app with your childrens’ photos, set up emergency contacts and register your seat for safety alerts.

Before you begin using your new car seat, please be sure to thoroughly read the provided installation instructions in combination with your automobile owner’s manual.


Safety Alerts to Your Phone, Instantly

We all get distracted now and then, so once you have installed I Alert and your child is comfortably seated in the car, you’ll receive a message to remind you to buckle them in. This alert will appear each time you seat your child.

I Alert constantly monitors the ambient temperature in the back seat. Temperatures in the back seat are not as well controlled as the front seat due to dashboard positioning, so your child may not be nearly as comfortable as you are. The temperature inside a car can rise 20 degrees in just 20 minutes, which means a caregiver’s quick trip inside the grocery store, bank or gas station could quickly lead to a potentially unsafe situation.

If a child is unintentionally left unattended in the car, an alert will be sent to your phone. If the situation continues, additional alerts will be sent via email and/or text to the contacts you’ve selected during setup and registration of the I Alert software. These alerts will let others know that a child may have unintentionally been left in their car seat.


A Monitoring System that Grows With Your Child

As children grow and begin to explore more, I Alert keeps them safe by sending you movement notifications. If for some reason a child is able to move out of their seat while the vehicle is in motion, an alert will sound on your mobile device. This will be your notification to pull over and re-secure the child in their car seat. And because your safety is equally important, I Alert’s notifications have both audible and visible options, so you won’t be distracted while driving.


Designed for Outstanding Safety and Comfort

The IAlert’s Advanced Side Impact Technology has been tested to international side impact standards. Our energy absorbing foam and contour design helps to reduce impact forces that may occur in the unlikely event of a crash, while providing a comfortable seat for everyday use. The deep seat means your child fits in the seat as they grow, keeping them secure and comfortable longer. For added convenience, a removable, washable cup holder will hold your child’s sippy cup on the go.

Easy-to-Adjust Harness

This seat features our standard no re-thread, easy-to-adjust harness. Keeping your child rear-facing longer is easy: the harness is for use from 5 to 35 pounds rear facing and up to 65 pounds in forward facing installations.

If you've ever tried to re-thread a harness on a car seat, you know how difficult it can be. The IAlert is hassle free, as the harness adjusts simply by moving the side adjusters. Each is clearly labeled to help you determine the correct positioning as your child grows.

Rebound Energy Management Technology Keeps Your Child Safe

I Alert features smaller bottom rails and the patented Rebound Energy Management system--a flip up rebound bar that actually helps manage the rebound in the unlikely event of a crash. Simply pull the bar forward and it snaps in place with your rear facing installation. Flip it back with you to move to the forward facing installation. Rebound is the movement that may occur during a crash, the rebound bar assists in stabilizing the rotational forces associated with a crash.

I Alert
I Alert's many added conveniences, like a removable headrest, make traveling comfortable and safe.

With all the padding and the fixed belt for the buckle there is not much room for adjustment there.

Color Name: Naturalization
The C685 you are looking at is the same as the C680 seen in the link below with one added feature of the iAlert system. This lets you monitor your car seat angle, temperature inside the car, and warns if the seat comes unbuckled. It notifies you via smartphone alerts. It will even send alerts when your child is riding with a different person and you aren't in the car.

I signed up last year as a beta tester on the first years website and ended up with a prerelease unit for testing purposes.

When I received the seat I was doubtful that I'd ever utilize the new alerting features. I set them up (very easily I might add - even for a non-technical person) and as I predicted, it only ended up sending me one alert when my child unbuckled the belt. This is something that was pretty obvious when it happened and I'm not sure I needed an alert to inform me of the event. I'm not sure the new fancy features will ever come in handy or be worth the extra money. But time will tell I suppose, something tells me that the first time they ARE useful it could turn into a priceless feature.

Here's the same seat without the iAlert system.

Color Name: Black & Gray Verified Purchase
This car seat is good in concept but ended up seriously underwhelming me and my spouse. The overall design of the seat was great. It offered what seemed like a comfortable, protective ride for the little one and it could be used from birth through the toddler year. That aspects of it was great and the only reason I am giving the project the 2 stars that I am and if I would have bought the seat simply based on those premises, it would've been higher.

The problem is that the seat promotes a revolutionary alert system that doesn't quite work like I believe it should work. Bluetooth applications in all devices had trouble connecting with the seat and the connection never remained consistent. When the connection was made the app was slightly confusing to use and overall didn't seem user friendly. The instructions never tell you that the battery unit must be charged prior to first usage which was rather annoying. When the unit was connected, the alerts would come through 9 out of 10 times but the problem is that they should come through 10 out of 10 times. When setting up secondary contacts to receive text alerts, the alert failure rate was even higher, maybe 2 out of 10 went through and when these did go through they still took at least 10 minutes to receive.

Overall, I like the concept of the seat and would buy one and pay the price ($400) if the issues were corrected.

Color Name: Black & Gray Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I tried out this First Years True Fit iAlert car seat for my one-year-old daughter, and as a car seat, it is a great product. Physical setup, installation, and adjustment was easy, and my daughter seems safe, content, and comfortable. Of course, what sets this particular seat apart from the others is the smart phone connectivity...and that's where I found mixed results.

I was careful to follow the instructions, no matter how confusing and frustrating they were at times. As instructed, I downloaded the free iPhone app and I went through the steps to get the car seat connected. Unfortunately some of the most basic instructions were not fully explained. There is a great deal to read between the enclosed booklet and the assorted explanatory cards that come attached to the seat. Oddly, some info is included on the card but not mentioned at all in the booklet, forcing you to really sit down and read every enclosure before moving forward. And even once I absorbed everything, there was still confusion. For example, although instructions are included about accessing the battery unit inside the car seat, both the booklet and information card failed to mention that the battery had to be removed and charged via USB before you could ever use the seat. Sure, this might seem obvious, but I had no idea going in that that was a necessary step. Further, there was no explanation about how long the battery needed to charge. As a result, I charged the battery initially for four hours, put it back in the car seat, and was promptly informed that the battery was still "dead." I then charged the battery overnight, more than twelve hours, and suddenly noticed that a red light on the unit had gone off - presumably a sign that the battery had fully charged.

Color Name: Black & Gray Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I have used two different car seats in the past which are the Diono RadianRXT and the Recaro ProRide. Both great car seats. I can compare The First Years seat with the ProRide more. They are similar in size. The Diono takes less space and fit very well inside my Honda Fit. Even when rear facing it fit well with no problem. It was easy to store since you can fold it. Taking the upholstery off was easy as well for cleaning. Adjusting the straps was a little more work but do able. The ProRide is bulkier. Taking the upholstery was easy too. Adjusting the straps was super easy with a turn off a knob. The First Years falls between the two of those seats I have owned. The First Years car seat fit fine on my Honda Fit. Rear facing and forward facing was not a problem. Due to the adjustable headrest that can be removed I was able to fit it inside the car rear facing. With the other seats I had to push the front seats forward in order for them to fit. With the true fit I had more leg room and was able to drive comfortably. Cleaning is very easy as well. You can remove the upholstery for cleaning. It seems very comfortable for my son to ride in as well. It is more plush than the other 2 seats I have had. What I really love about this seat is the whole IAlert feature. I downloaded the app on my iphone and paired it with the seat. Super easy to do and the app is very easy to use. It has lots of great safety features that make sure your child is safe and comfortable.
