The typical features found in a GPS watch that alerts parents that their child could be in danger are anti-drop sensing, real-time position tracking using WiFi, GPS and LBS base positioning technology. GPRS and GSM features can also be provided with the tracker watch in order for two-way communications to take place. Some watches also have an SOS button with a pre-programmed phone number for the child to press in order to notify the parent of any danger.
Some other features that are included in the watches are the following:
GPS watches, such as the PingMe watch, allows your child to make and receive calls. Using the app, parents are able to programme 10 pre-selected numbers that your child is able to use when in trouble. This is convenient, because it doesn’t limit them to one or two phone numbers. Should a child need to call their parent, they are able to by simply pressing a button on the watch.
It is important to remember too, that the GPS watches are also watches, and many of them have an easy to read digital display. Children are able to easily toggle between the date and the time. The watches also notify the child when the battery is running and low and needs to be recharged.
Some watches also have a “talk back” function, where parents are able to send a pre-recorded voice mail to the watch that the child is able to access. The child is also then able to record a message to send to their parent’s phone.
Some watches will only start tracking the child once he or she leaves a previously specified area and others can even monitor other information such as heart rate, blood pressure and body temperature. Some wristwatches can even be locked onto a child’s wrist.
There are many other features to look for when choosing a GPS kids watch, but these are some of the most important to consider.
