I bought this watch for my 9 year old who will be walking home from school soon. I wanted her to be able to contact me if she needed but I feel at 9 she is too young for a phone. I see children walking to and fro school with their heads buried in their phone - very unsafe. This watch is perfect. She will only use it when leaving school or when shes at her friends to let me know she is on her way home or off to clubs etc. I disable it for school so it only works as a watch. I can see on my phone where she is and it will tell me if she leaves the area. The charger is easy to use. We charge it every night but she still has approx 65 to 83% by 8pm, so battery lasts well. We did have trouble fastening the watch but learnt that if you leave it clipped in to its regular strap hole when not wearing then it is alot easier to pop it back in when you go to wear it.
I know this watch is ideal for the next 2 years at least. The longer I can keep her head out of a phone the better in my eyes.
The first watch I bought did have a faulty speaker so spacetalk changed it for a new one within the same week and kept me updated which was excellent customer service. I strongly recommend this.
I love this device because I can communicate easily with my child without the fear of their mental health and the effects of having social media right in their pocket. The power button being on the back now means there’s a much smaller chance of turning on at the wrong time.
I have Bought it has a Christmas present for him so it’s not been opened I must say from purchasing it it came with in a few days
Bought this for my 9 year old, I like that it’s all managed by parents she has access to what we allow her to have, school mode it’s great she doesn’t really play with the watch at school as we lock it. 5the watch Has to be charged everyday, only thing is the charger could be better designed so that the watch docks in nicely in it as we are unable to take straps off. Overall a great purchase and would highly recommend.
Bought this for my 7 year old granddaughter, so her mum could keep an eye on where she is , they love it
Works perfectly fine, calls are crisp, location tracking is accurate. My only gripe is that navigating menus is slow, resulting in my kid pressing many times to open apps.
Good watch for children before you want to get them a phone. Kids love that they can contact you when they’re not with you.
It’s quite chunky for little wrists and the strap is quite tricky to fasten. This means it’s not always practical to wear.
We got good detailed support of team as we struggled to sync watch & app but chatting with support team helped find our mistake and we are on day 2 of using watch and really happy. Charge didn’t last as long as we thought but based on our experience I would recommend the Spacetalk adventurer. PS Be sure to shop around for good deal with SIM card provider, with not an expensive monthly charge!
It is a great watch and perfect for the interim time when the children are getting older but you don’t feel it is quite time for a phone.
The battery does not last long though and we haven’t yet managed to get it to last for a full day at school and then heading out after school for the evening.
A good product which does exactly what is stated. Gives me a bit of comfort to allow kiddo out to play. Battery is a bit on the shortside is only downside
Battery life not the best still trying to work it all out but my 8 year old loves it
Bought this for my 7 year old son so I can contact him when he is out playing with his friends. It's fantastic and would highly recommend. Every feature on it is amazing and accurate.
Lets me keep track of him and he can phone me if he need to and knowing he can't access the internet or anything that he shouldn't.
Needs charged every day but that's not a big deal.
Great device for keeping track of the kids even when you already know where they are. Lets them give you a quick call to let you know where they are going before they go. Needs charging every day though (which is no biggie) - just think of it like another mobile.
Our 8 year old boy loves this watch. Very robust. Great that we can track our child’s position, and also phone/message. Only downside is the battery life.
My daughter is almost 10 and this watch does everything I hoped for. This allows her to have a bit of freedom whilst creating security and peace of mind as I know where she is at all times.
Perfect for my 8 year old
This is a perfect way to provide my daughter with some independence walking home as I feel she needs a phone yet. The parental settings give me full control and you can add preset text message responses so she doesn’t get distracted. We switch settings off when she is at school so she just uses the phone and it comes back on when she finishes school. The only slight downfall is the battery life as it needs charging most days
My 9 year old son suffers with anxiety. Since covid has disrupted life he has become more anxious about being apart from me, this comes at a time when he needs to be developing more independence in ways such as me not collecting him from the gate at school but a bit further away. Spacetalk has provided him with the confidence to do in a way that makes him feel safer.
It’s money well spent in my view, we don’t have to worry that he’ll lose it because it’s strapped to his wrist all day. And he’s not using up extra anxiety having to think about it either. We have it on school mode during the school day which means he can’t use it to call or text and potentially get into trouble with teachers.
There are times it can take a while to track him, which is because it’s 3G I suspect. It’s not a big deal for us because he generally calls me when he leaves school.
Great alternative for those kids wanting a phone but still too young to have one because we know they will lose or break it! Calls, Texts, GPS, etc..are all there, no web browser which is a good thing, plenty of that in the home. My son is very happy with the watch and so are we. Some carriers require the ACN to be named (can be found in Settings) before Data can be used, other carrier sims work for Voice and Data straight away. All in all, recommended !!
We love the watch and all its functionality. It's made a big difference in knowing that even when my lo is not with me she can still reach me via SOS. We love school mode but it's great using the actual phone and texts which o control the contacts. Still haven't figured out how we free games or allmytribe stuff which we expected to receive for free as advertised.
Does the job. Good sound and tracks fairly reliably. It even survived my son diving into a swimming pool with it on! He remembered too late and came out immediately. The watch did not work initially but we opened it up, let it air dry overnight and gave it a gentle blow dry from the hairdryer and viola! it was working fine again!! Definitely recommended
My 10 year old daughter loves this smartwatch. The battery doesn't last very long so isn't ideal if you can't charge it every day - ie if your child is on a sleepover OR if they forget to charge it! There are some great features like an activity tracker and heart rate but most importantly, the chat function is really useful and easy to use for both child and parent.
Love this watch it does everything I would like it to do and keeps my mind at bay when at parks etc the only thing I would criticise is the battery life it really doesn’t last long at all
Got this watch for my wee girl as she’s started to properly go out further playing with her friends. She phones every hour to tell us she’s ok but with the tracker as well we have the extra security. I would say to use an 02 micro SIM as we had issues with others. Would highly recommend Spacetalk 👍🏻
Absolutely 100% from me, love the watch and the accuracy of the gps, gives me peace of mind when my kids are out pleating
