-Speak with Your Child
Call your child’s Gizmo any time, and your child can use it to call you.

Check the location of your child’s Gizmo with just one tap. You can also schedule a time for the Gizmo to automatically check your child’s location or set GPS boundaries and get notified if your child crosses them.
Invite Buddies, Caregivers and other Guardians who can call the Gizmo and receive calls. The number of contacts varies depending on the type of Gizmo you have. Guardians and Caregivers can also use the GizmoHub app to find your child’s Gizmo.

Ratings and Reviews
Let me begin this with saying I literally don’t know what we did before my oldest had his Gizmo. He’s 7, and has moderate ADHD that we don’t treat with medication. He’s gotten lost on his bus route several times and often forgets who is picking him up/where he is going (I’m a single parent of two and an RN, so we are BUSY). This device and app allows me to be aware of where he is at all times, and allows him to the freedom to call me any time he’s away (he spends a lot of time with his dad and extended family, for example). I can also call him and check in or remind him of appointments or events. That being said...the app itself is pretty glitchy. It takes a long time to refresh and update location, can display incorrect battery life, and can take a long time to load. Again, as a whole it’s indispensable, but the app definitely needs some work.
App needs help
We’ve only had our Gizmo for a couple weeks. So far it works great for phone calls and, though it takes a while to show the location, it does bring up where my son is. The issue is with the text function. This is preferable for us since I work in an office and he is at daycare and we can keep in touch this way. Unfortunately, my son sends me texts and I get an alert on my phone and a badge on the app, but when I open the app there are no messages. When I check his Gizmo watch later, I see that he did send me some messages that I never received. Occasionally they will come through later - sometimes after a day or 2. But usually they never come through. I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling the app, closing out of the app, and have done a hard reset on my phone, but this has not fixed the problem. We have the Gizmo watch to stay in touch, so not being able to receive texts from my son is a huge issue. I appreciate you looking into this or offering suggestions on how I can fix this on my end.

Thank you for your feedback.
Great little watch
I got this for my almost 8 year old because he is often with family or has other after school activities. This way I can always let him know exactly where I will be to pick him up and he can call to let us know if there is a time change for anything. It is wonderful. It allows us to reach out to him— without him having all of the bells and whistles of a smart phone (like apps and the internet) that he does NOT need. I also love that only his contact list is contactable. He loves sending quick little recordings and emojis in the text box to family across the country. He gets to feel like he can keep in contact without going through me all the time. My only complaint is how long the GPS takes to update his location. I am nervous about keeping the real-time location on and draining his battery if he is not due to be picked up yet.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
