Best GPS trackers for kids

What are the best GPS trackers for kids?

Updated May 2017: We’ve removed the KOREX Waterproof Babysitter Smartwatch from our list because it has been discontinued.

It can be difficult to keep track of your children, and it can also be hard to gauge when it’s appropriate to get them a cell phone or something a bit more mature in order to keep in contact with them.

GPS trackers are fantastic, potentially life-saving tools that help keep track of your little ones, so you won’t have to worry about where they are. Just have them wear their GPS tracker like a watch, and the rest is up to your watchful eyes.

Here are a few great options to check out if you’re looking for the best GPS trackers for your kids!

Tinitell

Stylish looking with a simple, modern design, the Tinitell GPS tracker is an innovative new smartband that worked effortlessly with an app from your smartphone.

Tinitell isn’t only an interesting-looking, modern device, it’s also an incredibly durable and resilient GPS tracker. Tinitell is designed to take some abuse, including splashing water and dirt (although the device itself isn’t 100% waterproof by any means).

With your smartphone, you can connect and monitor your child with a precise GPS tracker, and you can even call your child using the Tinitell app. The smartband can have up to 12 contacts listed, so they never have to worry about being stranded without anyone to reach out to if they’re in trouble. To make a call, all they have to do is press the front of the band, say the name of the person they’d like to contact, and that’s it!

The Tinitell comes in four different, vibrant colors, including aqua, coral, charcoal, and indigo. You can use a Ting SIM card with your Tinitell for around $ 12 a month.

GBD-GPS Tracker Kids Smartwatch

With all-day tracking, three-way positioning, and even an additional fitness tracker element, the GBD-GPS Tracker Kids Smartwatch aims to make monitoring your children as effortless (and as accurate!) as possible.

Using a micro-SIM card, the GBD-GPS tracker is not only able to make two-way calls, but also immediate SOS emergency calls if your child comes in contact with unexpected danger. While some GPS tracking devices use one or two ways of triangulating your child’s location, the GBD-GPS uses GPS, AGPS, and LBS positioning to paint a more accurate picture of where your child may be.

The GBD tracker allows parents to erect an Electric Fence, giving your child boundaries that will set off an alarm on your smartphone if crossed. If need be, parents can also call their child on their smartwatch for easy two-way talking, and can even use the app to set remote alarms and reminders for their children.

The GBD-GPS comes in three neon colors, including blue, green, and bright pink, so there’s a color option to match almost every child’s favorites.

LG GizmoGadget

If you’re a Verizon Wireless customer and are looking for a tracker that will allow your child to use text and voice to check in with you, then the LG GizmoGadget is an excellent option.

The GizmoGadget sports a 1.3-inch touch screen display, but in order for your child to make a call, they will have to press the physical button, and then use the touch screen to choose a contact. The GizmoGadget also allows you to pre-program up to 9 different texts messages that your child can send to 10 whitelisted numbers.

PC Mag rated the LG GizmoGadget 4.5 out of 5 stars.

“The LG GizmoGadget is an excellent smartwatch for primary schoolers who need to stay in touch with their caregivers via voice and text.”

The wearable also has a handful of other useful functions, including an activity tracker, a stopwatch, and a timer.

dokiWatch

Though the dokiWatch is designed for children 6 to 12, its sleek and modern looking design, high-quality, reliability, and wide range of color options make it a stylish (and incredibly practical) GPS tracker for people of all ages.

The dokiWatch claims that it’s the world’s most advanced 3G smartwatch for kids, and there’s a lot to support that statement. The dokiWatch combines precise GPS, GSM, and Wi-Fi tracking technology with video call capabilities, voice calling, one-way text messages, fitness tracking, and so much more.

The smartwatch automatically uploads location data directly to your smartphone, meaning you’ll never have to guess where your child is. Video and voice calling is almost instantaneous, while parents can remotely schedule their child’s appointments and reminders from the dokiWatch’s compatible app.

With the dokiWatch, children can send out SOS alerts if they’re in immediate danger to their preset contacts, including their location and a recording of their surroundings. Parents can even enable Class Mode which will remove the distraction of the device while their child is in class by deactivating it at specific times.

Best Fitness Trackers Under $50

For those interested in checking out fitness trackers on the cheap!

It’s nearly summer which means many of us are scrambling to get more active and maybe slim down a bit before hitting the beach. And a fitness tracker can help you reach your goals, but there’s nothing worse than investing hundreds of dollars into a top-of-the-line Fitbit or fitness smartwatch only to wear it for a few weeks and then leave it to collect dust in a drawer.

Fortunately, there are plenty of affordable fitness trackers out there for your consideration. They’re offered across a range of designs and you’re sure to find one that will meet your needs without breaking your bank.

Here are the best fitness trackers you can buy for under $ 50!

Xiaomi Mi Band 2

The Xiaomi Mi Band 2 is the latest fitness tracker from the Chinese company which is known for delivering quality products at a great price. It’s a great option for someone looking for a more traditional wrist tracker on the cheap.

This tracker is packed with features: it’s water resistant (IP67) and will track your daily exercise and sleep, give you message and call notifications on the OLED display, and also includes an ADI photoelectric heart rate sensor (though you’ll need to load up Xiaomi’s Mi Fit app to see those stats).

Basically, Xiaomi managed to offer all the awesome features you’d expect from a premium fitness tracker and pack it into the sleek and affordable Mi Band 2. With its replaceable wrist strap, you’re able to swap for colorful bands — you can get an 11-piece set of colorful bands to chose from for under $ 20.

Fitbit Zip

Fitbit is the leading brand in the fitness tracker space, but its wrist accessories aren’t for everyone. Fortunately, there’s the Fitbit Zip that conveniently clips onto a coat, shirt or jean pocket and tracks your steps, distance traveled, and calories burned throughout your day.

It connects to your phone via the Fitbit app, allowing for wireless syncing of data so you can view your weekly progress. There’s also a popular social element built into the app which lets you connect with friends in fun challenges to keep yourself motivated.

The Fitbit Zip is available in a variety of fun color options and is water resistant. Best of all, you don’t have to worry about recharging it since it comes with a replaceable watch battery that lasts up to six months of wear. For a hassle-free Fitbit experience when you’re just looking to track steps, the Fitbit Zip is an affordable and convenient option.

Jawbone UP MOVE

The Jawbone UP MOVE is another unassuming clip-on step counter that will also track your exercise and calories burned throughout the day but can also be worn on your wrist at night to calculate your hours slept and the quality of your sleep each night.

With no screen, you’ll be relying on Jawbone’s UP app on your smartphone to deliver you all the stats and information collected by the UP MOVE. The app also lets you connect with friends and family and see how you measure up on the team leaderboards.

Priced at under $ 15, the Jawbone UP MOVE is a great option for a someone interested in their first fitness tracker.

Misfit Flash

The Misfit Flash includes all the tracking abilities you’d expect from a fitness tracker: sleep, steps, and calories. It’s also very water resistant with an IPX7 water-resistance rating — not quite enough to guarantee it for swimming, but certainly able to survive a rain storm.

If you hate the idea of charging your fitness tracker each night, you’ll be happy to know the Flash features outstanding battery life; it can last roughly six months on a single watch battery. It wirelessly syncs to your smartphone and transmits its data via the Misfit app.

Misfit Flash starts at around $ 18 and goes up to about $ 30 depending on which color you’d prefer.
