This watch is so cute! The idea is great! It works like poop. The charger is poorly designed and finicky. It doesn’t charge. It dies after 2 hours when fully charged. It doesn’t reflect to the app properly. The sound is mediocre when talking to my son. It’s a watch, though, so wasn’t expecting perfect on that. I hate it. Finally got on to write a review because a message came through on the app that the watch is going to shut off after 2 hours of my kid being at school. I have tried restarting, shutting it off and back on, checking it’s charging through the night. Reading other reviews I see I am not the only frustrated parent. My son fell hard roller blading and finally cracked the screen. I WILL NOT BUY ANOTHER ONE. It’s so awful.

Yes, I'd recommend this product.

The watch works good, though the screen is fragile. Also the battery could last a little longer.

1. Only one designated emergency contact can be called, which the parent establishes during device setup, and which the parent can update in the GizmoHub app.
2. This information can be accessed on the device by pressing the SOS button and selecting the Medical ID option.

Garbage

Disgruntled mother · 1 month ago

Do NOT buy this piece of garbage. We are on our 4th. This is not kid proof. There are no cases for this version of the watch. I tried liquid glass and that was short lived. DO NOT BUY THIS. (When it worked it was convenient).

Terrible...don't buy

1 out of 5 rating

Tjack02 · 1 month ago

I purchased this watch for my son and was so excited for him and us as his parents to be able to communicate with him. But from the day I got the watch it has been a terrible experience. First and foremost after one day the watch would cut off every time u turned it on. So I took it back to the store and they replaced it and gave me a new one. After I got this one issues once again. It would stay charged it would die after 2 hours, the gizmo app would not keep up the watch and was constantly out of date, it stopped ringing, it would not accept calls or allow calls to go out. At this point I just gave up. For the price of this watch I was very disappointed Verizon really rushed making this watch..no watch at this price point should have these issues and the insurance does not cover the Disney only the regular gizmo so if u break it and need a replacement they are not going to replace it with the Disney just the basic.

This watch is soo cool! With every update that gets pushed out, improvements are made and fun characters keep getting added. In regards to the person that posted about asurion not covering it.. I've had it replaced by Asurion and at first they sent out the wrong kids watch but when I called them back, they sent out the correct one. I pre-ordered this watch and can confirm at first there were charging difficulties but that's been resolved and has been working great.

It works! It's a watch that allows me to keep track of my 7 year old. Wears it to school, and when playing outside. The app is easy to use. Real time tracking is pretty neat... Drains the battery faster, but a great feature for the helicopter parents. It's works for us!

Hey JayB. We're happy you find Gizmo's real time tracking feature useful. Yes, the increased location update rate does consume battery faster. That's why we limit it to a five minute duration, which can be repeated on demand. Also, check out location-based and time-based location alerts in the Gizmohub app. Cheers! The Gizmo Team.

Woody · 2 months ago

This watch is not good. Don’t waste your money. App is clunky and take a long time to update location. Had it less than a year and it randomly turns itself off and you have to put on charger and hold button for like 30 sec to turn back on with still 39% battery left. Did I mention waste of money?

Verizon - 1 month ago

Hi Woody. We're sorry to hear about the issue you are experiencing with the charger. What you are describing is definitely not typical behavior for the GizmoWatch. We recommend first that you do a full device reset of the watch From the GizmoHub app's dashboard select More and scroll down to Delete Gizmo) and then repeat the device setup. If that does not resolve the issue, Please call us at 800.922.0204 so we work to resolve your issue. As for location updates, to save on the GizmoWatch's battery, the server updates GizmoWatch location automatically every 24 hours. However, here are a few features you may find useful to get location updates more frequently as to your preference. - Location update on demand: from the GizmoHub app's map, tap the icon on the right that looks like a GPS pin. - Real-time tracking: From the GizmoHub appo's map, tap the icon on the right that looks like two GPS pins connected a dotted line. Real-time tracking lasts for about 5 minutes. - Location-based and time-based alerts. In the GizmoHub app, select Kids > Add a location alert. Thanks, The Gizmo Team.

Yes, I'd recommend this product.

The gizmo watch needs some update. The charger is horrible. It would be batter to have a wireless charger like the Apple Watch. If you don’t take a q-tip to the charging port with sweet from the kids it can short out the watch. If you don’t have the insurance you will hate your life.

Verizon Connect Gizmo - 1 month ago

Hi bdiff. It's not true that sweat will short out the GizmoWatch. It is certified with IP67 rating to be splash and water resistant, including the charging points. We do recommend that you periodically clean the charging points on the watch with an alcohol wipe or cotton swab to maintain a clean contact with the charger. If you need further assistance with the product, please reach out to us at Gizmo.feedback@verizonwireless.com.

ASURION DOESN'T COVER THIS DEVICE

1 out of 5 rating

Yuri · 2 months ago

We had this device for 3 months. Our 8-year-old fell and broke the screen. We have been paying for insurance on this device didn't think anything of it. We made the claim for them to let us know we could get the standard Gizmo Watch. The standard is a downgrade from this watch. No camera and no video call. Why would we want a downgrade? Per Asurion, they don't cover the special edition. I asked if they can just replace the screen, Asurion states they don't replace screens on watches. Why sell the insurance for this watch? If we want the same watch we have to go rebuy a new one. This is so disappointing.

Great watch for safety.

Nalasmom · 2 months ago

Yes, I'd recommend this product.

My two daughters had the Gizmo watch 2 which alotted some sense of relief when the girls were at school or transitioning from home and to school via bus; therefore, leading me to purchase the Gizmo Disney edition (Mandolorian band) for my 8 year old, the 11 year old is too "mature" for the watch. My 8 year old finds the device easy to use, comfortable, and enjoys communicating using the preset texts, EMOJIs, and the newly added video chats. Even though, the video can be a bit grainy due to the higher quality video of my phone, it is an incentive for communication. Five of my favorite features are the assignment of tasks for children to complete, the fact that the watch will auto answer calls, the ability to track standard and live tracking, notifications, and the setting of school mode which prevents communication. My daughter uses the watch with her friends while on the school bus who all want a watch too. After reading the reviews, I understand why the frustration with the limit of contacts, as well as the fact that the only means of communication is through the Gizmo app which I believe is for safety issues, to avoid stranger danger. My 4 star rating is that it does not permit at least basic child created texts, step tracking is not counted during school mode, the app sometimes disconnects causing the adult to have to log-in, the difficulty to obtain a second charger, the sporadic delayed location notification (corrected by live tracking), and last but not least, the lack of diversity of Disney characters programmed onto the watch.

Hi Nala's mom! We love that you and your daughter are getting full use out of your GizmoWatch Disney Edition and the GizmoHub app. We agree that the video call feature encourages kids to call their parents. And you are correct; limiting the number of contacts to 9 contacts (plus yourself as guardian) is for safety and security reasons to protect your child. We'll pass your suggestions on to our product team. Cheers! The Gizmo Team.

Does the parent need to be on Verizon network to use this watch with child? Husband and I have AT&T.

The GizmoWatch Team - 6 days

Service for the GizmoWatch is provided through Verizon. However, parents using the GizmoHub app (which provides location information and enables communication with the GizmoWatch) can use an Android phone or iPhone on another wireless operator. Having Verizon on the parents' mobile phones is not required, but of course, we would be delighted to have you. :-)

No, you do not have to have another device with Verizon. The monthly charge is a bit more if you do not have another Verizon device but the watch itself is contacted and set up with a separate app.

I would love to know ALL the song clips featured on the Disney Gizmo watch. We have been trying for months to solve the mystery of these tunes. Especially interested in the OVERCOME tune. What is the movie or show it comes from. I'd love the answer!!

KimTApr 0, 2021

Is it possible to use wifi for the watch? The coverage at my daughter's home is not strong enough for the watch to work.

The GizmoWatch Team - 6 days

The GizmoWatch uses the Verizon 4G network and does not use Wi-Fi for placing calls.

Does the Disney watch still have the predetermined texts or can they free text?

The GizmoWatch Team - 3 days

The GizmoWatch Disney Edition lets your child tap to easily select from 20 canned (prewritten) text messages such as simple yes or no answers to questions such as "When are you picking me up?" Parents can use the GizmoHub app to edit or rewrite any the canned messages and the edits will be updated in the GizmoWatch. In addition text messages, kids can make audio and video recordings to send as messages, as well as live video chat.

How big is the band on the watch? Curious if it will fit 5 year old that is more like the size of a 4 year old

Jason - 1 year

It's manageable for a 5 year kid. It will look bulky on their tiny wrist no matter what. Best thing is to try it on at a store.
