Most parents run their lives from a Smartphone, whether it is making calls, attending remote meetings and a lot more. Adding a tracking app to the device will not be such an inconvenience.

The main concern
The activity for children, even as young as 6 years old has increased today. Children attend dance classes and other different activities almost every evening after classes. This means that parents need to be aware of where their children are during these times. Even weekends are packed with more activities and parties. Basically, today a parent needs a way of remotely tracking the movement of the child to make sure that safety is maintained.

Enter GPS tracking watches
GPs tracking watches are very fashionable and come in colours that children love. The watch is ready to use when it is removed from the box. When the child gets the watch, the eyes light up and want to try it on right away. The watches can be worn anywhere, including schools and places where children attend activities after school.

Getting the app
The app is easy to download and set up. Most watches allow for free download of the tracking app to your smartphone. As a parent, you set up the primary account, and then any guardians or caregivers that work for you can set up an account and add the GPS tracking watch.

The two way communication feature
Parents do not want to buy mobile phones for their young children, given the dangers of social media. A cell phone is expensive and the responsibility may be too much for a child as young as 6 years old. This is why the GPS tracking watch is great. It is durable, and can also act as a cell phone, without the features such as social media or online access which may not be suitable for a young child.

Would you use a kids GPS tracking watch to track your child?

Would you use a Kids GPS tracking watch to track your child?

Parents have some peace of mind when they know that their children are wearing GPS tracking watches which will keep them safe. However, technology may not always guarantee that a child is safe, even when wearing a GPS tracking watch.

Parents have a lot of questions about the use of tracking devices. Will it be possible for a GPS tracking device to be so small that it can be implanted in a child? Would a parent pay a monthly fee for protection of a child through GPS technology? How safe would the parent feel? There are just a few of the questions that parents ask before buying GPS tracking watches.

Today’s technology has had a profound effect on parenting in general and keeping track of a child is certainly a priority. When at home, parents use nanny cams to ensure that their children are safe, and so using a GPS tracking watch to keep track of a child is no surprise.

Now comes the controversy – Experts say that parent should teach children to be responsible, independent and know how to handle themselves in the face of danger. They say that parents need to think hard about why they need GPS tracking watches to keep track of their kids. They believe that these watches invade the privacy of the children and limit their activities and stop them from fully enjoying their childhood. They say that this tracking will get into the psyche of the child and affect the behavior and development of the child. Parents are asked to respect the private paces of the child so he or she can play without feeling the presence of the parent all the time using tracking technology.

GPS tracking watches should not be used to spy on a child. The devices should be used to ensure the safety of the child, and only used when the safety of the child is paramount. For example, if the child is at home, then the tracker should not be used, but when at the shopping centre, it is proper to use it.

Parents need to sit the children down and explain why the tracking device is necessary. They should let them know how it works. The child needs to know that the primary concern of the parent is safety and not spying. Technology may not be able to protect your child fully, and the child should know NOT to indulge in risky behavior while thinking that they will be rescued within moments due to the tracking device. Children must know what the correct choices to make are, despite having tracking Watches.

Parents need to know that GPS tracking watches do not replace personal care and attention. Traditional rearing of children is important too. Use GPS tracking watches to keep children safe, but also teach them to be responsible even when they are away from your sight.

The trust of a parent is important in teaching children to be responsible. They learn to freely make decisions knowing that they are the correct ones. If you want to give you child a GPS tracking watch, make sure that your reasons are the right ones.

The smart way to use GPS tracking “Smart” watches

Despite the fact that Smart GPS tracking watches have been around for a while, there are parents who buy them for what we believe are the  wrong reasons. GPS tracking watches for children have features developed mainly for keeping children safe when they are away. The features allow parents to keep track of children when they are within certain geo-fence zones. When the children wander from these zones, they get alerts on the app installed in their Smartphones. A parent can also locate the child, should he or she get lost when in a crowded place.

However, GPS tracking phones for children were not designed to keep an excessive “Watchful eye” over children. We believe that children should be afforded some degree of independence, allowing them to enjoy their childhood years. They should be allowed to make some level of “error” since that is the only way they get to learn from their mistakes – a normal part of growing up into responsible adults.

When a parent goes online to buy a GPS tracking watch, the main reason should be the safety of their children. Here are some of the features found on these watches:

  • A GPS tracking device – This allows the parent to get the location of a child when the child moves beyond the set safe area. This is one of the best features of the device, since it allows for tracking of the child should he or she disappear or have an accident.
  • A calling feature – This allows the child or parent to call in emergency situations. The child can simply make a call for help and the parent can go to the child or coordinate with emergency services to locate the child.
  • A “Panic” button – this button is activated, sending an SOS message to selected telephone numbers while also making a call.
  • Parental Control – This allows the parent to control which numbers can be called or can call the GPS tracking watch. This is a great feature since it stops unauthorized people from accessing the device and calling the child without your permission.
  • 128-bit encryption – This ensures that the device is always protected and data cannot be hacked. This is also for the safety of the child.
  • Splash proof – Children will always be playful especially around water. This feature ensures that any splashed water does not affect the device. However, this does not mean that the watch is water-proof and should always be removed when bathing or taking a swim.

GPS tracking watches for children should be used to ensure the safety of children when they are in school, visiting with friends or when otherwise away from the attention of the parent.  Your child needs some space, so ensure that you buy the watch for the right reason.

WatchOvers supplies GPS tracking watches for children and for the elderly. We have one of the best services when it comes to providing this kind of protection for your children. Contact us now for more information on our  watches.

GPS Tracker watches in Schools

 

GPS tracking watches are important in schools where children with special needs attend. They are also necessary for other children, for different reasons. This article looks at some of the reasons why GPS tracking watches should be allowed in schools.

When the GPS tracking watches came into being, most schools frowned upon the idea of children wearing the devices in class. They felt that parents did not fully trust them with the safety of their children, which became a sensitive issue for both parents and school administrators. However, there were compelling reasons, especially when it came to children with special needs. Here are some of them

Children with special needs have the tendency to wander off, even without their knowing so. A child with ADHD can forget where he or she is, and not even remember how to get back to the school. Children with autism are even more difficultto monitor, despite the fact that they tend to stick to particular routines.

GPS tracking watches are a great way for parents, and teachers to keep track of children with special needs. If the class goes on a school trip, the teachers can rest easy, knowing that the parent can track the child using the GPS tracking apps. For other children, it is important for both parents and teachers to keep them within the geofence allocated to each. During class, the geofence is limited to the boundaries of the school. If the child tries to play truant and miss classes to go out of the school, the parents and teachers can easily track the child.

There are other people who feel that the child will not be able to study well, knowing that he or she is being monitored. This is just a case of the parent and the child understanding why this measure is necessary. The child should know that the measure is being taken primarily for safety purposes.  Parents should discuss the GPS device with their child to get buy in from the child.

GPS tracking watches in schools have become very popular, with some becoming fashion items. This is similar to the case where children found it exciting to have a Smartphone in school. They feel that they belong when they see that they have GPS watches just like their peers.

In conclusion, it is no longer a big issue as to whether a child should wear a GPS tracking watch to school. Parents and teachers have come to agree that the devices are important in the safe monitoring of the child against any incidents.

Top reasons why GPS tracking watches are necessary for children

Today, parents have accepted GPS tracking devices as fulfilling part of their parental duties to their children. These trackers are available at reasonable prices and most parents can afford to buy them for their children. The main reason is the safety of the children, but there are other reasons, which this article will look into. Here are the top reasons why GPS tracking watches are necessary for children.

Knowing where the child is

It is not possible for a parent to keep a supervisory eye on their children at all times. When the child is at school or out with friends, the parent cannot know where the child is. With the GPS tracking watch, a parent can simply check on the location of the child by checking the GPS position on a map. It will give the parent some degree of supervising where the child is at any time.

Safety against accidents

Children will go exploring even when they feel like they are going into a risky situation. Children are curious by nature, and they will venture into dangerous spots without knowing how risky it is. If a child should wander into a cave and get trapped, the GPS tracking watch will let the child communicate with the parent and inform on the risky situation he or she may be in. This will allow the parent to retrieve the child safely and within a short period

Safety against abductions

There is a small risk of children getting abducted by unscrupulous people. Some of these people ask for ransoms, especially if the child is from a well-off family. With the GPS tracking watches, the child can be tracked and the perpetrators brought to book.

Safety where wandering is an issue

A parent with a child with autism or ADHD will feel better knowing that the child is wearing a GPS tracking watch. The child may wander off and the GPS watch allows for quick assistance for  the child. The fact that the watches also act as a mobile phone means that the parent can talk to the child and keep the child calm until you can assist him or her.

Parental peace of mind

It is only natural for a parent to think of the safety of the child at all times. It is unbearable to think that your child is in an unsafe environment or situation. With the GPS watches, the parent can define a safe zone, and when the child goes out of the zone, an alert is sent. If no alert comes through the parent will be at peace to concentrate on other duties at work or at home.

GPS tracking watches are very important to parents and children. They should be part of the normal day to day items for your child.

Tracking your child – is it against the law?

When you consider the debate that has been going on about the ethics of monitoring children with GPS tracking devices, it would be good to know what the law says about this. In the beginning even schools used to refuse children from coming to school wearing GPS tracking devices. Parents insisted until the school acquiesced. However, was this right under the law?

Children, just like adults, have a right to maintain their privacy. However, due to their minority status, this right to privacy is limited to a certain point. There is no legislation that is directly concerned with GPS tracking of children. Although there is no law targeted at this practice, you will find that society has come up with some sort of “AcceptedBehavior Rules” withregards to GPS tracking of children.

A parent has to weigh the ethics of tracking thechild against the dangers that the child may face, and how the tracking device could help save the child. Most people opt to go for an open relationship with the child in order to determine whether the tracking GPS device is acceptable. The child may just say that he or she can use a cell phone and the parent can call at any time to know that the child is safe. The child may also see the concern of the parent and accept to be monitored with a GPS watch. Most children are happy to wear a GPS watch as they feel more secure.

Parental rights also allow the parent to be in full control over the movement of the child. A parent is within his or her rights, if he says that the child should not go to a particular area. Using a GPS tracking watch to ensure that the child does not venture to the restricted area is therefore legal.

On the side of the child, society understands that the child is obligated to listen to the parent, especially when the safety of the child is the issue. This means that the child may have to wear the GPS tracking watch, whether he or she wants to or not. As long as the mother or father has said the watch must be worn, the child is obligated to do so.

The law says that the privacy rights of the child are not equal to those of an adult. Thereasons being that a child cannot make critical decision, the child is vulnerable to the adult and the adult has a right to parent the child.

The legality of tracking children using GPS devices is a grey area. There is no law for or against it. There are expectations that are enforced in the existing laws. There are also societal expectations about the privacy of a child. Perhaps soon, there will be legislature directly addressing this issue, but for now, there is none that says tracking your child is illegal. You have the right to keep your child safe at all times, and you have the right to have peace of mind. If you need to have the child wear a GPS tracking watch, there is no law against it.

As with any laws, they are different from country to country as we have seen from Germany banning any devices that can listen in without the people around the device knowing they are listening.  We expect we will see more changes in this area.

Ensuring Child Safety with the WatchOvers App

The safety of a child is one of the main responsibilities of a parent. It is not possible to monitor your child at all times, and this is the reason why parents have turned to GPS tracking watches and other devices. GPS tracking watches have become the most popular because they are normal items; they act as mobile phones, and provide the required monitoring of the child. These GPS watches use certain apps in order to provide tracking information to a parent or caregiver. WatchOvers is one of the leading applications within the industry, and this article looks at some of the features that make it one of the best.

GPS location

This is one of the main features of this application. The location allows you to see were the child is at any time. With the location feature, you can set a geofence within which a child should remain. If the child goes outside the zone, then you get an alert and you can then find your child, or call and let the child know that he or she is wandering outside the safe zone.

SOS Button

If a child s in danger, then a simple push of a button will send an alert to the registered numbers, and also make a call. This simplicity of operation is why the app is so popular. There are no complicated ways of getting help.

Two way calling

The fact that the watch can act as a mobile phone also reassures both the child and the parent. If in a strange situation, the child can call the parents and ask for help. The parent will locate the child on a map and then deal with the situation. With two-way calling, the parent can keep talking to the child to give him or her reassurance while you are getting to pick them up.

SIM card roaming

The application allows for the registration of the strongest network in any area. This means that the child can be located, even if the original network of the SIM card cannot be accessed. An alternative network will be used.  The sim card will roam between mobile networks to use the network that has mobile signal in the area the watch is located.

Data Encryption

In today’s world, hackers have been known to engage in some devious activities. They can be hired to find information about the location of a high-value target’s child. This means the child could be abducted to leverage the parent to do something against his will. With WatchOvers, nobody can get to the data, since it is protected by 128-bit encryption.

Basically, WatchOvers is one of the leading GPS tracking watch applications on the market. There are many other features, but these are the most important. You can rest assured that your child is safe when you use the WatchOvers app on your GPS tracking watches.

5 practical ways in which GPS tracking watches can help you parent your child

In a world that is filled with endless distractions and potential dangers, parents really have a hard time bringing up their children in today’s society. Losing a child even for a short period is enough to traumatise a parent for life. This is the reason why GPS tracking watches have become very popular for monitoring the location of children at all times. Here are practical ways that these devices help you look after your children.

Losing children in crowded areas

This is one of the most common instanceswhen parents say they have lost their child. You go to the fair or the shopping centre, and within a few seconds, the child is lost in the crowd. You run around frantically calling for the child. You have a lot of fears running through your mind over what could have happened to your child. You are in a state of suspended animation and do not feel good until you have found your child. With a GPS tracking watch, this terror will not happen at al. As soon as a child gets lost, open the WatchOvers app, and within a few minutes you will have located the child if you are outdoors or simply call the watch and talk to your child.

Teenagers also need some monitoring

Although teenagers are usually fighting for their autonomy, it is prudent that you get them to wear GPS tracking watches so you know where they are. Teenagers are more likely to get into dangerous situations because they are adventurous and also feel like they are grown up enough to deal with any problem. With the GPS tracking watch, you can easily see where your teenager is. The issue is not to spy on the teenager, but to know that he or she can tend to take more risks than a younger child, and hence the need for monitoring.

Developmental and behavioral challenges need tracking

If you have a child with ADHD or autism, then you know that your child can sometimes wander off unintentionally.GPS tracking watches help you parent your child by allowing them to live a more normal life without being supervised at all times. A child with ADHD can forget where he or she is going or where he or she is. With the tracking device, you can find them within a few minutes.

Keep children safe from bad people

One never thinks it can happen to them, until it actually does – child abduction is a very traumatising experience. As a parent, you must protect your child from such events. Give the GPS tracking watch and your child will be safe at all times.

Give your child autonomy

You cannot be there for your child at all times, and you cannot ground the child if you are not around. Let the child wear a GPS tracking watch and go wherever he or she wants, within limits. This will develop a sense of independence which is healthy for him or her. You as the parent will also have a little more peace.

When should a child start wearing a GPS tracking watch?

 

GPS tracking watches are great for ensuring that your child is safe at all times. Today’s lifestyle has parents spending  more time at work, than being at home for the children when they come from school. Most times, the parents have to let the kids go and come from school using the school bus, or walking. With all the hidden dangers of children getting lost or being abducted, parents have resorted to using GPS tracking devices to monitor the movement of their kids. The question is what age should these children wear the GPS tracking watches

Looking at the way children grow up in today’s society, there is an age when they are grown up enough to take care of themselves. It would be odd for a parent to tell a 17-year-old teenage boy to wear a GPS tracking watch. At this age, the boy knows how to take care of himself and avoid getting hurt. On the other hand, when a child is just a few years old, and has to start walking to school, then it is prudent for a parent to ensure that the child has a GPS tracking device for proper monitoring. This is a child who can easily be taken advantage of, and end up getting hurt.

Most people argue that GPS tracking watches should be worn by children between theages of four and ten. This is a time when the child is most vulnerable, and can easily be abducted, or get hurt doing things that did not seem risky. A 7-year-old may decide to explore some fields or caves with his or her peers and soon get lost. The GPS tracking watch will help you  find him or her quickly.

GPS tracking watches come with a lot of features that can be used by a child who is as young as 4. The watches come with an emergency button, which when pressed once will call some predetermined numbers and indicate that the child needs help. The watch can then be tracked on a map, and the location of the child determined. Within a short period, the child will be rescued. The simplicity of operation is great and allows even young children to learn how to use them quickly.

The WatchOvers app also allows the child to call certain numbers. This is great since it gives the parent comfort knowing that they can call the child and talk to the child when in danger or not. Talking to a lost child can help calm him or her down, till someone can go to the location on the map.

There are several reasons why a child needs to have a GPS tracking watch but the debate about the age still goes on. However, most parents and concerned parties say that the ages of 4 to 10 are the most vulnerable, and hence children within this age bracket are the ones who should wear the GPS tracking watches.
