Parents are always trying to figure out a good balance between watching over their kids and giving them space to grow. Many opt to get their kids a cell phone, but there are those like myself that are trying to resist that temptation. I know how connected I am to my phone, and I honestly just want my son to be a kid and not tethered to a screen. We have looked at a few options recently, like the TickTalk 3
and the Republic Wireless Relay
, and now we are going to take a closer look at Verizon
's option; the GizmoWatch.
Features and Specifications:
The GizmoWatch is a 4G LTE watch that runs on Verizon's network and features a GPS tracker with boundary alerts, a messenger, calling features, a fitness tracker, and a few games. This particular GizmoWatch is the Mickey 90th anniversary watch, but it is customizable by changing the wallpaper and you can replace the watchband (which has a standard 20mm width). It has a claimed 7 days of standby time and usage of up to 4 days. It is also waterproof to IPX7, up to one meter for 30 minutes. Features can be controlled via the GizmoHub app which is available for Android and iOS.
