If you’re looking for a tracker for a small child, you don’t have any shortage of options to choose from. However, if you want something to track a wayward teen or middle-schooler, your options are slim indeed. Introducing the Caref GPS Phone Watch by Precise Innovation, a GPS enabled watch (that doesn’t look like a conspicuous tracker) which allows parents to track location and speed of their free-roaming teens. The device also features two-way voice and text calling that automatically answers, so they won’t have the option of ignoring your call, plus other features.
The Caref GPS Phone Watch is waterproof with a 24 hour battery and features an SOS button to send text messages in case of emergency, geofencing so you can be notified if they leave a designated area, and 3 hour location breadcrumbs so you can see where they have been in case of emergency. The watch comes in green, pink, yellow, purple or black.
The same company also has a tracker available for smaller children, called the Kidsport GPS Tracking Band, which is much smaller and does not feature calling or speed alerts. It does, however, have many of the same features plus a safety latch to let you know if the band is removed or cut off. The band comes in blue, green or pink and can be customized with fun charms on the side.
Both devices are available for preorder for $129 and will be shipped late this fall. The devices also require a data plan (to support the calling and such, no doubt), which can be purchased for $9.99/month and does not require a contract, so it can be cancelled and renewed at any time with no penalties. The watches can be tracked on your smartphone or tablet with an accompanying app.
The company also has a third device, Gabriel GPS, designed to track elderly and those with autism, Alzheimer’s or other disabilities. There aren’t any specs on Gabriel available on their website, and the device is slated to be released later this fall.
