As my youngest nanny kid is almost old enough to start walking to school without me but too young to have a cell phone yet, I have been worrying about how we can keep in touch with her. That’s why I started researching GPS Tracking Smart Watches.

Having kids wear GPS Tracking Smart Watches allows caregivers to monitor the child’s location, and call them back if they stray too far. The idea is not to be a burden for the child, but instead to ensure they are safe at all times.

Garmin Vivofit Jr 2

The Garmin VivoFit Jr2 and the original are designed to be fitness and health trackers made for kids 4 years and up. The watch has a color screen that can be customized with a variety of themes including Batman, Disney, and Star Wars. This is an upgrade from the original, which only had a black and white display.

There are educational mobile games and activities which sync with the device via a mobile app. There are also step challenges and personalized goals which can be set by parents too, so you can make sure your kids are staying active.

Parents will receive alerts for everything happening, including when their child reaches a goal.

Caregivers can even assign kids chores around the house and the device will make sure they get done by sending reminders and alerts.

If you need multiple bands for additional kids you can track and monitor them all within the same mobile app, which is super convenient for larger families.


The GizmoPal 2 is an update to the original model, which was a GPS tracking watch for toddlers.

The GizmoPal 2 also includes fun sounds, and a voice clock which calls out the time. At any time parents can open the companion app for Android devices and view their child’s location thanks to built-in Wi-FI and GPS.

Parents can even set location reminders through the Android app, which automatically polls the watch’s location to show their child’s whereabouts throughout the day.

After setting boundaries, the watch will send notifications if it detects the child crossing them. This is great if they’re outside playing, or if someone is home watching them.

The device works as a phone too, as parents can call the watch and children may call out to predetermined numbers. It features built-in support for up to four different numbers. That way children can call Dad, Mom, Nanny or siblings when they need them.


Tinitell Smart Watch

Like other GPS tracking watches for kids, the Tinitell Smart Watch functions as a mobile phone allowing children to call a preconfigured set of numbers. It also allows parents to call their child. For example, a mom can ring the watch to say that dinner is ready, and it’s time to come home.

The Tinitell includes a module so parents can GPS track their child’s location in realtime.

There’s a single button on the front of the smartwatch to turn it on or off, and two volume buttons to adjust audio levels. The battery will last for a continuous sixty minutes of talk time, or a full week (7 days) in standby. The exterior is IP57 dust and water resistant which means you don’t have to worry about your children ruining the watch while they play — or if they spill drinks on it.

There are several colors available including black, pink, green, and blue.


Abardeen is a brand well-known among more than 3 million families in the world for the past 10 years. Up to 50 contacts are supported and call block can be set up from an APP on the caregiver’s phone.

The watch has Geo-Fence which allows caregivers to set safe zones from their APP and receive instant notifications if the child arrives or departs from the area.

There is a SOS button so kids can ask for help immediately simply by pressing the SOS button to circularly call three preset numbers preset in the APP.


VTech Kidizoom Smartwatch DX

The VTech Kidizoom Smartwatch DX has GPS features to track your nanny kids and tons of fun games and activities for the kids to enjoy. Perfect for 4 to 9 year olds who like taking photos and videos and can upload to any computer.

Kids will love using the new motion sensor to explore three action challenges.

The Smartwatch DX also includes eight games kids can play using the touch screen as well as the ability to download more from Learning Lodge.

The watch helps teach kids how to tell time by letting them choose between more than fifty 3D digital and analog displays.

In addition to the alarm, timer and stopwatch, two new tools include a calendar feature and a calculator so your child can work out simple addition, subtraction, multiplication and division.
