As for specs, the GizmoWatch 2 has 4GB of RAM, a Qualcomilimet Snaprồng Wear 2500 1.2GHz quad-core processor, & a 500mAh battery that Verizon says can last up to lớn four days with typical use. In testing, the battery still had more than 50 percent after 24 hours.

Once it"s fully charged, turn on the watch & wait for it lớn connect lớn Verizon’s network. You then use a QR code scanner in the phầm mềm lớn scan the code on the watch, then follow the instructions in the app to lớn get connected. Once paired, the phầm mềm asks if you want to lớn add the number associated with your child’s GizmoWatch 2 to lớn your contacts, which you’ll definitely want to lớn vì lớn make it easy lớn Điện thoại tư vấn them.

From there, you can set up location alerts (more on those below), a to-do các mục, và a daily step goal for your child. The tiện ích also lets you remotely turn off the device when needed, and phối up quiet times when the watch will show incoming calls on the screen, but won’t ring.

You can also mix a four-digit GizmoHub PIN for security purposes. That way, if a stranger gets a hold of your phone, they won’t be able khổng lồ access the app and see your child’s location unless they know the PIN.

Navigating the Watch

When you wake the watch by pressing either button on the side or tapping the screen, the main screen shows the date và time. The GizmoWatch 2’s interface is colorful and intuitive. A swipe down from the clock face brings up icons for Volume, Ringtones, Cloông xã Faces, và Cheông chồng In. When your child presses the Chechồng In button, an alert is sent lớn your phone with the time & their location. Swiping left and right from the clock face lets you access Contacts, Fun Activities, Gadgets, and Settings.

In the Gadgets section, your child can phối alarms as well as access their to-vị danh sách, a timer, và a stopwatch. In the ứng dụng, parents can create and schedule tasks for their child, & they"ll appear in the to-vì phầm mềm. You can create one-time tasks, or schedule them khổng lồ repeat daily, weekly, or monthly.

In Fun Activities, there’s an ứng dụng for funny sound effects, và a kangaroo jumping game that gets your kids moving. As the clock counts down, they have to jump a certain amount of times to lớn move sầu to the next cấp độ, & each màn chơi gets harder.

There’s also a voice changer that lets kids record a message then hear it back as a robot, someone who inhaled helium, a squirrel, or a quái nhân. They can then sover the funny recording khổng lồ a trusted tương tác.

The Fun Activities section also has a step counter, which parents have khổng lồ enable in the tiện ích. Verizon warns that doing so will reduce battery life, so keep that in mind. You can also add a step goal, mix a time to lớn receive a daily notification with your child’s step count, and write a congratulatory message they will see when they reach their goal.

I don’t have sầu kids, but I have sầu a 10 year-old niece and a 6 year-old nephew, và I know what they like when it comes khổng lồ công nghệ, and that’s games & Clip. Given the GizmoWatch 2’s limited selection of Fun Activities, I can see it getting a little boring over time.

Tracking Your Child

One of the best features of the GizmoWatch 2 is the ability to traông chồng your child’s location. From the app’s dashboard, simply press the arrow icon lớn kiểm tra your child’s whereabouts. You’ll see a map with a pinpoint showing your child’s location, và you can optionally view a satellite bản đồ for more detail.

There’s also a real-time location feature that lets you track your child’s movements as they happen, but you may want to lớn use this feature sparingly, as it significantly reduces the watch"s battery life. When this feature is enabled, you’ll see an orange dot showing your child’s location on a bản đồ, & the dot will move as they vì chưng.

You can also mix up location-based alerts so you’re notified if your child moves into or out of a specific area during a certain time period on specified days. You can, for instance, mix it up khổng lồ alert you if your child leaves school before they’re supposed lớn.

Time-based alerts will skết thúc a notification with your child’s whereabouts at a certain time on specified days. So, for instance, you can have sầu it send you an alert with your child’s location every weekday at 3:30 p.m., or whenever their school day ends. You can mix up to lớn five location-based & đôi mươi time-based notifications. In testing, both the time- và location-based alerts worked perfectly, notifying me of the watch’s location when expected.

Calling & Texting

I especially lượt thích the GizmoWatch 2’s calling feature. During setup, your phone number is automatically added to lớn your child’s liên hệ danh sách on the watch. In the tiện ích, you can add up to lớn nine additional trusted contacts (for a total of 10) and specify whether they’re a buddy, caregiver, or guardian. A buddy can gọi & get calls from your child. A caregiver can also receive sầu check-ins, location alerts, & activity alerts. A guardian has the same permissions as the parent who sets up the device.

When you invite someone to be a guardian or caregiver, you have sầu the option to send them a text message with instructions. They will need khổng lồ tải về the GizmoHub phầm mềm, accept your invitation, & create their own tài khoản. People assigned as a guardian will automatically receive sầu all alerts mix up for your child, unless they disable them via the ứng dụng.

When your child wants lớn contact someone, they simply need to swipe lớn Contacts, select the person they want lớn reach, then press the hotline or text button. When you press the Điện thoại tư vấn button, it starts dialing right away. When that person picks up, your child can talk to them through the watch itself. When making calls through the watch, I had no problem hearing the person on the other kết thúc of the line, and they had no problem hearing me. In the ứng dụng, you can see a hotline history of who your kid spoke to và when.

There’s also an auto answer feature available in the ứng dụng. When enabled, Verizon will automatically put repeat calls through if the child doesn’t answer after 10 seconds. The company says that auto-answered calls are disconnected after one minute to prevent misuse by others và to protect your child’s privacy.

If your child opts to lớn text their trusted contact, they can skết thúc an emoji or select from a list of prephối messages. They can"t type out their own text, but there"s an option to send a voice message.
