Kids smart watch

I was wondering I have an eight-year-old who loves to play in the neighborhood but I would like her to have a smart watch with GPS that is kid friendly I see other phone companies that do it like Verizon and T-Mobile but AT&T from what I hear does not offer one and I was wondering if there would be something offered for a kids smart watch or if there something on the market that I could purchase and put a Sim card in

AT&T does not sell a kids watch, or anything that is a suitable standalone wearable.

Verizon's kids watch 'Gizmo Pal' is available on their website and is only $10 a month single device plan. The companion app for the parent will run on another carrier.
So as long as Verizon works well enough in your area for connection you can still stay with AT&T and run the watch on Verizon

Sorry.  Nothing that will work with At&t.  At&t had a watch that didn’t sell well. 

At&t is less than a year away from not allowing 3g only Devices due to pending 3g shut down.  So any device has to be LTE compatible with At&t.

Verizon still has the Gizmo, which is LTE compatible with their network.

  The Gizmo by LG is the only one on the US market, only sold for Verizon.   There are plenty sold that will not work on US cell carriers, they will tell you otherwise of course.  

   I have no idea if it’s unlockable as it’s sold under contract only. Even unlocked, it may not work with another carrier.

The Gizmo is a Verizon only device..  They paid LG to only sell to them...

Oy.  If using speech to text, at least get punctuation and proof before you post. It’s very hard to read this post.  

   If you’re saying At&t should sell something, they did, it didn’t sell, so they stopped.   If this is a ‘must’ for your child, switch to Verizon.

Lol.  True. Which is why I knew what it was.

Hi, 

I was actually searching for the same thing and came across a watch called TickTalk. You can link it to your AT&T Account. Monthly plans range from $10 - $40. But the watch is a little pricey $170. Goodluck to you!

But it wont be able to be activated at the end of the year as it does not have VoLTE.

Just an FYI. There is currently no LTE replacements for the gizmo watch which Verizon sells, or used to sell.  Verizon‘s gizmo watch will no longer work once their CDMA service is shut down. AT&T also does not have a device.

there is really no suitable replacement for adult supervision.

Rude. The entire point is to increase supervision by having away to stay in touch with my son as he rides his bike around the block or plays basketball at his friend's house. Did your parents follow you around the neighborhood all day on Saturday not breaking the line of sight?

From the Verizon site:  "The GizmoWatch comes with the speed and reliability of the nation’s largest 4G LTE network."  Verizon still sells them and, in fact, they are currently on sale with a two year contract.
