No SOS option

3 out of 5 rating

WorriedMom · 1 days ago

Verizon coverage is great but the GizmoWatch doesn't have the SOS option and you cannot save 911 telephone in the contact either. This is a HUGE design flaw. The whole point getting the watch for my kid is the safety concern and keep track of her. I am disappointed that SOS wasn't part of the design, where as other kids' smartwatches have it as their primary feature.

Very good for price

Yes, I'd recommend this product.

Before purchasing, I read all the bad reviews and was a bit worried. However, after my son has swam with it (the watch shouldn’t be working), taking it in the shower several times and hitting it on occasion- it still works great! Keep in mind- I only got this watch to make sure my son could call me when he’s at his dads house, the tracking was an added bonus feature for me. Whenever Im curious on his location, the watch hasn’t ever faulted. Whenever my son texts me or sends a audio text- it always comes in. We have the original Gizmo not the 2, but This has been one of the better investments I’ve made. I think the review on this watch will depend on your situation. This watch works perfect for mine. :)

Screen cracked in days

2 out of 5 rating

AndrewDC · 2 days ago

I got one of these for my son. He was so excited. Within two days, the screen is cracked. I don't understand how it can happen so quickly other than to believe that this device is simply not durable and therefore not suitable for kids. And it is literally impossible to figure out whether and if so how to get it repaired. The online guidance is no help. I was on hold for 45 minutes with customer service and no answer. I'm regretting going down this road.

Durable, but GPS is pretty much useless

2 out of 5 rating

singlemom · 6 days ago

I would love to have loved this thing. Unfortunately, the technology falls way behind in what the normal expectation might be for an adult product. The biggest problem by far that I had with this watch was simply that the location didn't update continuously (presumably to conserve battery life). This means that while my child was with his father, I would have to manually update the app to get a fix on his location, and many times, the watch's new location didn't load at all. The app was glitchy at best, and there were several times when it simply wouldn't let me or my son place calls or messages. All in all, it just couldn't be depended on when I needed it most. Upgrading to the Apple Watch SE for my six year old son instead, which is INSANE, but the best alternative in this market.

TERRIBLE

1 out of 5 rating

xxkennedy · 6 days ago

This watch is the biggest pain and makes it completely not worth purchasing. The watch has so many issues, I would absolutely not recommend. The bands are terrible and break or don't stay on. The watch itself takes FOREVER to update GPS on my child. I'll wait a solid 5 minutes for it to refresh and it will still show her away from the place she's actually at. Sometimes it will show her 2 miles away from where she's at. The phone is supposed to auto answer if she doesn't pick it up and sometimes it doesn't. Do not waste your money.

Happy with Purchase

Papa Bear · 11 days ago

Yes, I'd recommend this product.

This has been a good investment. We are over two years, many drops, some in water, mis-placed several times, two watch bands, a few challenged reception incidents. It could be better, but for what it is I feel it has been a good value. It still works but it is worse for the wear.

Not worth it, you might as well invest in an Apple Watch for your children

IdrlVatm · 11 days ago

We bought two of these for my children so we can keep track of them while they are out playing, but have had issues non-stop. In retrospect, we would have saved a lot of wasted time and trouble by spending a bit more upfront.

Yes, I'd recommend this product.

Not sure why this watch has such low reviews but I’ve had a wonderful experience with it. 1. We have the original gizmo. 2. My son has had this watch for 2 years now. 3. It charges well and last for days. 4. Tracking on it is amazing and always accurate. 5. Calls always go through 6. Texting could be better. There are only preset things they can send but they are allowed to send voice messages which works out well. 7. You can preset contacts so they can only call those people. 8. They can only text guardians and it has to be through the app. 9. Original watch band didn’t last not very sturdy but you can find some on Amazon for cheap and are more durable. 10. The screen is great we put screen covers from Amazon on my sons. 11. Also I’ve tried the gizmo app for both Samsung and apple and I have not had any issues with either phone. It has worked amazing for me

Intermittent service, poor quality... broken bands and functions

2 out of 5 rating

MiniT · 13 days ago

We live in a mountainous area, so generally expected service to be poor inside houses or where normal cell service is limited, but it iguana can't find the device in town or especially buildings even in highly serviceable areas. The bands have broken multiple times. Blogs indicate that our problem with the step counter not working often and requiring restart is common. We also have to fully factory reset it sometimes when the message log gets full. If it worked properly, this is a great little device. It's simple and has limited features, so it's perfect for doing exactly what it needs to do which is provide communication options with young kids that aren't phone ready.

Worth the buy!

Yes, I'd recommend this product.

Other parents near me say it has a little sketchy service in houses with already bad service but it does the job well. No complaints so far and we’ve had it 2 months now.
