Ratings and Reviews
Review and Request for Timer Function
When it’s working this app works well. Sometimes it lags or if there is an issue with the phone then the app itself is not very helpful. I recently got my son’s watch replaced because regardless of the days/times we set school mode, the watch would automatically go into school mode including on weekends. This went on regardless of troubleshooting efforts until Verizon sent us a replacement and we’ll see how it goes.
Another thing I would like to mention is that the Disney edition watch really needs a timer function. I don’t know why this was removed for a watch that is twice as expensive as the other Gizmos that have the timer function. As other reviewers (on the Disney Gizmo watch reviews) mentioned, the Disney watch could really use a timer function and no one could figure out why this useful function was removed. Kids use this for homework, tasks, etc. I’m hoping this would be a software update soon. When we got the watch, for example, there was no Boba Fett character option, and after a software update a couple months later the Boba Fett character option appeared. Hopefully a timer option can be updated this way? I mention this request here because a Verizon representative actually told me this (Gizmo app reviews section) would be the best place to make such a request/suggestion.

Thanks for leaving this review and feedback. Yes! This would be the best place to provide feedback and requests of this nature, as well as emailing us directly at Gizmo.email@example.com! I would love to get more info however on this lagging issue you mentioned? Could you email us more details on that? For the timer, we have taken your review as an example for a new feature request and will be passing it down to our developers for consideration. Once we have enough requests for this feature the developers will start working on including this to the future versions of Gizmo! We hope to see this implemented in future releases. If you have any other feedback or suggestions please feel free to let us know.
Amazing concept an kid watch/phone concept
This watch has worked very well for my child whom is now 9. It works exactly as it says ! If you follow the directions with the 10 contacts an put their level for the right abilities for example ( texting from apple to gizmo) is able if you have the apple user as an authorized person to the watcher holder at the level for texting. Note : there are different levels of permission for the 10 contacts. I say this for anyone seeing these reviews for deciding if it’s right for ur little one an what features in details/functions work best etc. because I did the same research. It’s GPS is unmatched even against apple it’s much more precise! And the volume …. The volume on my child’s watch is so LOUD WHEN NEEDED, an CLEAR, I have an Apple Watch and it’s no where near as clear an loud so this is a huge deal!
The rep at Verizon let us know of other places we can find more band options to update with a wrap band vs the ones with pin holes as the wrap kind are better with kiddos I can send pics if needed to show how maybe gismo can make some of these direct… the only tiny thing I didn’t like was My child scratched the front not screen but the border part of it when sitting on the floor in gym class n it had no protector for that but that’s not a biggie.. would love to replace that n have a cover option. Love love love this!!! Will always recommend it

Great basic watch
We’ve used a gizmo watch (replaced it once when my son forgot to take off before swimming) for about 4 years. PROS: Aside from the cost to purchase, it’s only $5/month for basic services AND gps (huge “bang for the buck”); the gps is more accurate than iPhone location services, it calls 10 people, location alerts let me know when he leaves school, I can put it on “quiet mode” if he forgets, holds a charge for 2 days (depending on how long his calls are). CONS: It takes at least 3 minutes to locate the watch using gps (this can be nerve wracking in an emergency), it doesn’t allow a 911 call (although I think you can make 911 one of your contacts), if I put it in quiet mode, he can’t take it off, sometimes the text messages are delayed (even though the notifications are on time), there are limited quick response texts (yes, he can use audio snippet but sometimes he is unable to talk), the watch band isn’t too durable (we’ve replaced or repaired ours at least once a year). All that aside, I’d highly recommend it for safety. He finally got a phone but the compromise was that he continue to wear his watch as backup. The watch gps is way more accurate and his phone inevitably dies or he forgets it at home. Eventually he’ll “age out” of this watch but it’s done it’s job for 4 years now. 👍🏽
