We have had this for a month now. App is good, easy to work, calls are clear and easy for my 8 year old, preset messages work really well and gps is accurate giving peace of mind. Highly recommended.
Very happy with this as our 11 yr old son would likely break his phone in the first few days.
Peace of mind for us & a piece of tech he likes to wear.
We love the fact that it is easy to control & screen who can contact him, plus the absence of a social media interface is a welcome Bonus.
My daughter loves the colour (blue) and is so happy to ring me and message me and it works well if she gets lost
Well where do I begin, my son is autistic and also a teenager, who like any other child wants independence and freedom. This watch gives me peace of mind so I know where he is and he has a direct link to me and his dad If he needs us.
The watch is not connected to social media and does not have a camera. Parents control who has his phone number and no unwanted calls can be received.
It has the old style Nokia phone texting ability with the Emoji capability so we can all enjoy communicating with each other. To be honest I get more info from his texts than I do when he’s talking to me so that’s also good.
The school mode is just simply amazing so that when he’s in class no one can bother him or have it taken off him.
The step counter is great and gives us the knowledge of much movement he makes on a daily basis.
He has used the SOS function albeit by accident but it worked and notified us straight away so we could check up on him.
He loves the torch mode and had helped me locate my car keys many times in my bag. He also enjoys checking the weather.
The Spacetalk support is amazing and they always reply to your messages. I simply cannot fault them. I’ve recently requested a longer strap and it was sorted and back with us within a week.
Thank you so much for bringing this amazing watch into existence. I’ve looked at other devices before purchasing this and I wanted something which he would want to wear and be proud of wearing. So thank you Spacetalk you’re amazing!
This watch has been a game changer for my family. We just started letting our kids out to play and it was making me very nervous and I felt the need to go out and check on them a million times a day. I know feel complete peace knowing I can contact them and they can contact me.
The watch is linked up to an app to help you control the setting on the watch and keep tabs on your child. I really enjoyed setting this up because you get to really personalise everything. I loved being able to put the pre made text messages in because it meant I was able to get a text back instantly. I love that I had complete control of what contacts go in the phone and the way I could put pictures beside each contact made is so easy for my children to call. My kids have loved being able to call family members and sending little messages.
Our family love a good star chart and this watch has something similar. You can award stars to your child if they do task you set for them. My kids love this and it really keeps them motivated. The step counter has been really Interesting and an eye opener to how active the kids are. My children are now obsessed with getting steps in which can only be a good thing.
The most practical parts of this watch have to be the SOS button and the alarms that I could set so they knew when to come home. I love that if I don’t answer the SOS straight away it will call my husband. For me this is priceless! I also love that I can find out the location of the kids whenever I want and if they leave the safe boundaries that I have set then I’m alerted straight away.
Lastly I love the way the phone does not distract my children too much due to the fact it has no games on it or Internet. It makes me happy to let them to take it to school. It actually has a school mode on it that allows you to control when they use it. I even get alerts to when the battery is low or the watch has been turned on or off. It feels like space watch have really thought about every worry a parents may have and put a solution into the product. I am so pleased my kids are getting the freedom I had when I was young. I can’t believe they get to play outside for hours and hours a day and I feel they are safe doing it.
Bought this for my son so he can start to walk to school on his own. School holidays right now but we’ll see how he gets on when he’s back at school.
He loves the step counter and seeing if its going to rain or not!!!
It does need charging everyday so longer battery life would be good, but all in all a great kids watch!
Great little watch! Battery lasts for ages and I can see where my son is at all times. Better idea that a mobile phone, stays on wrist and they won’t lose it.
I bought the grey Space Talk watch for my son’s 11th birthday. It looks like a bulkier version of my Apple Watch. It fits his wrist well and he says it’s really comfortable. Its a great design and looks super cool. This is of course important to my 11 going on 13 year old! This watch is a parents dream!!! It works as a phone (very well), has a GPS tracking (which is Excellent), sends and receives text messages, tells the time, count steps.... and has an SOS direct dial to emergency services. Settting up the nano SIM card was easy as well. I now have peace of mind wherever my child goes! My son loves it! He has so many technological distractions and this watch is simply that... a watch (very handy of course) with SO many amazing bonuses!! I am telling all my mommy friends about it. We all feel 11 is too soon to get a phone and this is the perfect alternative. It has all the best bits of the i-phone (for a parent too), without our child losing himself in a phone as it can’t play you tube or tic toc! Thankfully!!
Bought this for my 7 year old and she loves it - great introduction to calls & texting, with the piece of mind for me that she is safe.
I absolutely love this watch
It gives me the confidence for my son to be out with friends when i know he would loose a phone
GPS is spot on
My son likes the step count
Also like that I control what phone numbers he has via the app
Just wish the battery latest a bit longer
I can honestly say this is the best thing I have bought gps is so accurate and the call function is great
We purchased this watch for our 9yr old daughter and she loves it! Having just let her play outside with her friends, the location feature provides us with peace of mind knowing where she is and allows her to have a bit more freedom. We can call and text her and she can call and respond to messages from family members who we have added to her contact list. Another great feature is that it does not have internet access, so no social media.
The watch is essentially a basic phone but would be slightly better if it had a camera or a video chat feature.
Does absolutely everything it says on the tin, far better than anything else out there on the market just now and 100% worth the outlay. An outstanding product. Thank you.
Got this for my son to use during the holidays. I got him the grey version, as he though the blue was a bit "babyish". He loves the step counter and is constantly trying to smash the default limit. He loves getting reward stars and the fact that he can phone me if he needs to. I love the app as it not only allows me to see where he is (so much more accurate than cheaper Chinese versions), but also lets me see where he's been. It's great that he can't add random numbers on to his watch, as this can only be done via the app and the fact that there is no on-screen keyboard, which means he can only send pre-approved text messages, that and the fact he can only reply to messages he's already received. We'll see just how useful it becomes when he goes back to school. Al; round a great kids smart watch.
We have a son who is 12 with severe learning difficulties and this watch has done everything we wanted it to do.
We can now give him a little bit more freedom as we can be in touch with him whenever we need to speak to him or he needs to speak to us.
My son loves it and the watch makes him feel a bit more grown up.
If I could suggest any improvements it would be to extend the battery life a bit more. We have took all the battery saving advice but still find we struggle to really get a full day use on a full charge.
U can get a full day use out the battery if u are very conservative and just leave it alone , however my son isn't and like to give us a short phone call frequently.
Other area for future development would be to make the watch waterproof. As it's designed for kids this would be a huge benefit as kids dont think like adults to protect watches etc when washing hands, playing with water etc etc
All in all though this watch is brilliant and I would recommend it to anyone who is thinking about buying one.
A wonderful watch for our 7 year old. Easy to set up ( once we had the correct sim) £15 a month did seem a lot for a child’s watch, but it’s phone and location are fab and give great peace of mind. More importantly , he loves it !
We bought this for my 7 year old and it helps us know if he is further from home than allowed especially if he is playing with the boys who are slightly older than him!!
Great idea, works great!
This little watch is brilliant, bought it for my sons 8th birthday, the app costs £4 p/m plus £10 for a top up sim, you can track every movement, sos button for emergencies, pre written texts you can personalise your self, he now phones me to tell me his every movement and to ask if he can go to the park etc and who He is with, you can set alarms on the watch and name the alarm
Such as tea time and in time , it’s great .
Great to give my 8yo some control but I can still oversee what’s happening to keep her safe! Brilliant product.
Over all the the product is very good and the app to control it is easy to use and understand.
My son loves to be able contact me at anytime.
The biggest problem is the battery life is short even when the watch is not excessively used and you are still lucky to get a full day out of it.
Great watch easy to use. Battery lasts long. App is very easy to use
My 11yr has ASD and is about to start senior school, he needed some extra confidence to be independent and this watch fits the bill perfectly :-)
He loves the step counter and I love the trackabilty!
So far so good ! Had the watch 3 weeks , I can flick on the app at anytime & see where my son is when he’s playing out, phone & txt him with no problems & peace of mind knowing he can call me and that he has the SOS button for emergencies ! I wish the battery lasted more than a day but other than that well worth the purchase 😁
I previously rated the watch only 2 stars because the battery life was so poor. The Spacetalk team got in touch after seeing my comments, and helped us the change the settings. I’m happy to report the battery life is massively improved and we’re all enjoying the benefits of freedom and peace of mind. Fantastic service from Spacetalk. Very happy to recommend!
