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

@Hrumph   Yes, Verizon has a new LTE version.  Just in time as they expect to shut down CDMA within a year.    It can work across carriers and Verizon has a single device plan.

Hi all,KidsCamping.jpg

 

We see this thread is getting many views, understandably so.

 

AT&T offers watches with GPS functionality and call & text features. While they are not necessarily kid watches, they have the features you want like GPS functionality, call, and text. 

 

Apple and Samsung both allow you to track the device via their online portal.

 

If your kiddo has a smartphone, AT&T Secure Family is a great option. You can:

  • Track your kids' locations in real-time, or get arrival/departure alerts.
  • View up to 7 days of location history.
  • Limit or block internet during specified times.
  • Pause your kids' Wi-Fi® access from your phone.

Hope this helps!

this does not help. we asked for specific product and you do not offer that product. the other options we are aware of, but we don't like them as options. the final answer you should say is you do not offer a desired product that your competitors do offer.

This sounds great, but I want a no frills no distraction device for my young child. I love my att service, but I was almost recruited to Verizon because of ATT’s lack of product for my child. Luckily Verizon gave us a deal and allowed us the service without us having to switch over. Att should take note at the number of requests for this product. Your original may not have sold because it included too many distractions. I only wanted reminders, tracking, and talking abilities on the watch. The others which included games were a no go for me, if I wanted that I could have gotten any other smart watch on the market. Please put some consideration into stocking a simple kids smart watch.

Atthelpforums has some nerve marking their reply as solution, when it’s not.  AT&T smart watches are not stand alone devices like a kids tracking watch.  
   Verizon’s gizmo pal can be put on a single device plan, cheap, and managed on an At&t account with their app.

@lizdance40 Thank you! We love our AT&T and service and have had it for 20 years, I do not want to switch to Verizon as the coverage is not as great, but my pre-teen walks home from school, even though it is only a few blocks I want the security of being able to contact or find her. I am not getting her a phone, middle-schoolers do not need phones IMO.

For all intents and purposes the Gizmo Gadget is a phone. I would encourage you to take a good look at the device, and compare it to maybe adding a flip phone, especially if Verizon service is not reliable in your area.

Verizon's kids watch is available on the $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
