Great watch!

Jessica · 14 hours ago

Yes, I'd recommend this product.

I bought my son his watch for Christmas a few years ago and it still works great! I am not having any issues with the watch charging… it actually stays charged longer than I expected. My sons in 3rd grade now and I give him a little more freedom when he is outside with his friends because I am able to get a hold of him if needed. He is not ready for a phone, so this works great!

Charging issue explained

J Morgan · 1 days ago

Yes, I'd recommend this product.

I have had two of these for my twin 10 year old boys for almost a year now. Like so many others ours had the same issue with charging. What I found was fairly simple. The watch uses a magnetic base with spring loaded pins that make contact wit the back of the watch when placed on the charger. Well... my children's sweat and dirt get the contacts dirty and then the watch doesn't want to charge. The simple and easy fix is to simply clean the contacts on the back of the watch with a q-tip and a little bit of rubbing alcohol. Dry then off and the watch charges just fine. The design could have used witeless charging and perhaps in the next version it will. Over all! The watch works very well and my kids love them. I love the security that I have when they are wearing them. Battery life is good and lasts all day with no issues.

Love this watch!

Lillaurabora · 6 days ago

Yes, I'd recommend this product.

My son wears this when he's out with his friends in the neighborhood. Most of his friends have cell phones and wish they had his watch. We don't have to worry about him losing it, or breaking it. Planning on buying another one for our youngest daughter.

Terrific for 7 year old

Agree with others about the low ratings! A perfect tracking device for child who is going to crowded places with other families! A great stress reliever for parents!

I ignored the Bad Reviews, Don't be like me!

Family of 5 · 12 days ago

I read the reviews about the Gizmo watch but I figured that the issues with the watch charging probably had been resolved with the manufacture. I went to Verizon and the customer service agent assured me that the Gizmo is a great product and they sell a lot of them. I bought one for my daughter who is in 3rd grade. Not long after the purchase we started having issues with the watch not charging. Fast forward 10 months and the watch hardly ever charges and we never even use it. DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY!!!

Exactly what it’s supposed to do

KWwatchdad · 14 days ago

Yes, I'd recommend this product.

The watch allows our son to stay in contact with us and allows us to check in to see where he may be. It allows him a little more freedom as he ages, but gives us the sense of security of knowing where he is and that we can get ahold of each other.

Gizmo will not charge

Renee07 · 14 days ago

We bought the Gizmo watch for our son last year for Christmas! When he goes to use the watch, most times it’s not charged, even though it’s housed on the charger. I would not recommend this watch!

Great for kids- battery has endless problems charging

Silver · 14 days ago

Love this for our 2 kids. However, it has been a nonstop issue with charging. We are constantly replacing the charger or the watch. Hoping version 3 is wireless charging because the metal prongs and/or charging port seem to have charging issues. If you get it to charge it works great outside. It only has issues in certain areas of the house getting reception.

Works well for the intended purpose

KAM2021 · 16 days ago

Yes, I'd recommend this product.

We purchased this watch to communicate with our 9 year old daughter from when she is on the bus in the afternoon. Since there is a national bus driver shortage, bus times are erratic at best. We have been using the Gizmo for a few weeks now. We noted a few things to consider based on other reviews we read. This device is meant for quick, short communication, it does not operate at the same caliber as a smart phone and the price reflects that. We found battery life to be good for a small device and can remain charged for several days even if we forget to turn it off each day. We have her keep the device off and in her backpack during the school day and she turns it on when she gets on the bus. The real time tracking is what can drain the battery. Real time tracking can also make the watch get too hot. The standard location tracking works well enough for us that real time is not really necessary. Phone calls have great quality, the audio texts work fine and we get the communication we need. The app can lag a bit and does not seem to be fully reliable with push notifications, I could have some of the settings wrong. I tend to begin checking at the time she gets on the bus, so it has not been an issue really because once I open the app everything works fine. If the watch is off, it can only be turned on by the user directly from the watch. I think a safety feature would be have the ability to turn the watch on with app. You can turn it off from the app but not on. The app does have some other good safety features, auto answer, only certain numbers for calling etc. For this age group, this works for our communication needs and as long as you keep realistic expectations for the size and use purpose this will be a great buy.
