Keeping tabs on your kids at home can be done through communication, internet filters and other PC-based tools, but it becomes a little more difficult when they venture outside. Tracking your kids with GPS is now just a click away. Use these gadgets and ensure safety of kids
The eZoom is a small device that can be placed into your child’s backpack or permanently mounted in the car. Using your PC and smartphone, you can check your child’s location, create “safe” zones that will alert you if the device leaves these areas and even monitor the speed of the car your child in which your child is riding. Not just intended for tracking kids, eZoom can also be used to keep tabs on personal items as well.
Amber Alert GPS
Created more as a dedicated kids’ safety device, Amber Alert GPS lets you track your child’s whereabouts and receive emails and texts if an alert is triggered (if they venture outside of a safe zone, for example). It even notifies you if your child comes within 500 feet of a registered sex offender’s residence and gives your child the ability to use an SOS button if they need immediate help.
PocketFinder is another GPS tracking option that offers features such as real-time tracking, alerts, safe zone designations and speed limit alerts in cars. PocketFinder works with a complementary iOS and Android app and also lets you view up to 60 days of map history. And rather than tracking all day and consuming battery life, you can also customize the unit to your specific tracking needs, ranging from once a day to every two minutes.
HereO GPS Watch
Fitting in matters to most kids—from the way they talk to the way they dress. And although GPS trackers for kids come in all shapes and sizes, the hereO GPS watch is the way to go when it comes to aesthetics. The variety of vibrant colors appeals to your child’s inner fashion sense, while the slender design makes it comfortable for all-day wear. And with real-time tracking, proximity alerts, safety-zone set up, location history and more—you’ll have the safest and most fashionable kid on the block.
Weenect Kids GPS
When it comes to knowing your kid’s location, accuracy makes all the difference. And with a live map, compass, and distance countdown tracking, that’s exactly what the Weenect kids wearable GPS delivers. Along with safety zone set up, a panic button, and two-way calling capabilities, this device covers all the must-haves that a kid needs to feel safe. It also comes with a long battery life—up to seven days—so you won’t have to worry about the device dying while your kid is away.
As your kid grows, so does their world. And although you want to let them explore, you also want to keep them safe—and Tinitell can help. This simple, single-button wrist phone and GPS locator is a great middle ground for parents who want a voice connection without the bells and whistles of similar products. Tinitell’s limited functionality makes adjusting to wearable technology easy for your child as they venture out into the world—one tiny step at a time.
Most kids like imitating grownups—and the GizmoGadget allows them to feel a little more like an adult. Out of all the GPS tracking devices for kids on this list, the GizmoGadget is the closest to resembling the look and feel of an Apple smartwatch. With this GPS wearable, your kid can send texts and emojis, and add up to 10 contacts.
