The watch does what is says you can track your child and my grandson loves it . Peace of mind when they start to venture out with friends . We love it and support is fantastic from space watch
Easy to set up and for my 9 year old to use. Bought as I did not want him to take a phone out with him. Well worth the money and gives peace of mind when he is out. SOS button for him to use in emergencies and I can track where he is. From my phone. Some of his friends have since bought one and it was great being able to add to my sky bill instead of all the money at once.
This watch has been great for my child we love how it looks and the quality seems good it’s lovely that you can change the wallpaper so can make it more personalised. Only trouble is the battery is shocking there have been a few times the battery has run out just after school despite being on school mode.
Did lots of research and initially went for a rival product (Moochies). Bad decision and ended up being returned within 14 days. The last straw was a notification telling me my son was in London when he was actually where he should have been in Berkshire and the battery died. I decided to try spacetalk after watching the reviews and wish I had stumped up the extra money first time round. Genuinely good product and suits my 11yr old son. We didn't want social media distracting him at school and this was the perfect answer. Battery life is great, his gps is accurate if that's your thang and all has worked very well so far. If you are considering buying a phone watch and are looking at the cheaper competitors, pay the extra and go for this.
The watch does everything a parent would want it to do to ensure you are able to keep your LO safe. Major downside of this watch is that it is not waterproof, I would say not even splash proof. This is important especially when it comes to kids. We have had a couple of close calls with water already and have only had the watch a few weeks. I don't expect it to last long because of this. A bit disappointing in this respect as it was very expensive in my opinion and an IP rating is important when it comes to kids tech. Also I feel many people will not be happy about having to pay a monthly subscription to Allmytribe. In saying all this, the manufacturers hide nothing and are very transparent about all these facts.
Watch works very well - I can have peace of mind whilst my child is out playing. I can see where he is at all times and contact him straight away.
Only downside is the number is not private so is open to texts from all sorts of people and companies which I have blocked but given that its for a child the number should have been classed as ex-directory.
Watch and app very easy to work and is great for my 10 year old as I didn’t want to give him a phone, this watch gives us peace of mind when he is out. Would have given a 5 star review but the charging dock needs to be placed on top of something otherwise it does not charge due to the bulky straps.
fantastic watch GPS is accurate and I feel it allows some freedom but ensures she is safe. would highly recommend it.
Fantastic product. My 9 year old loves it. It’s simple to use and looks great!! Great for peace of mind as she starts to gain a bit of independence!
I got two watches, one for my son and one for my daughter. My daughters watch had a small crack on the housing and I called customer service. The watch was assessed and fixed under warranty within 4 hours by the team in Paisley.
The watches have been excellent and so has the customer service backup by spacetalk. I would recommend the watches to others.
We purchased this for my 9 year old when he started in Year 5 at Middle School. It seemed as though every child in the year group had a phone and it’s understandable when a lot of them are now able to walk themselves to and from school. I wasn’t quite ready for my 9 year old to go that far and the Spacetalk is the perfect solution. He’s able to communicate with us and his friends (but only those numbers I authorise through the app) without having the ability to get online. I would rate this a 5* device, the only reason I haven’t, and it’s the only downfall of it at all, is it’s battery life is not great. My son charges it overnight, he then wears it in the morning and all it’s doing is having a couple of alarms go off to remind him to get ready etc (another awesome feature!) he then has it on all day at school (with school mode on and all it’s doing there is telling him the time and his steps as you can choose what features are on and off for school mode!). I generally then get an alert at about 1430ish to say his battery is low (15% charge left) and then by the time we’re home from the school run it’s run out! So the battery life really does need to be worked on because if he was walking to and from school the battery would run out on his way home and that is not something I would be comfortable with.
Fab watch does everything and puts my mind at ease as school are encouraging parents to not meet in the playground. Allows us to meet somewhere and gives my son some independence. My only issue is it’s strap makes my sons wrist sweat an awful lot.
I bought this for my 11 year old who absconds from school, it’s been an absolute blessing and puts my mind at rest when I am at work, I know when he’s safe at school. The only down side is that it recommends location updates of 15 minutes or more to preserve battery life which means I don’t know instantly when my son has left school
Highly recommend this watch.
Complete peace of mind and my daughter loves it. Well worth the money
Bought this for my 9 year old son as a compromise instead of a phone as we felt he was still a bit young. He absolutely loves it! The watch gives him more freedom and also gives us peace of mind knowing we can contact him at any time, or he can contact us, when out playing with friends. The only reason we gave 4 stars was because we found that setting up the watch was a bit tricky, instructions were not very clear. We did get there in the end though and definitely worth it.
Thus watch has given us the ability to let our son play out knowing we can know where he is and in an emergency can contact us. He would put a phone down and lose it so it’s perfect, Highly recommended and great price!!!!!
Found this watch and read the reviews, I phoned customer service and they answered, quizzed them about all my concerns and was so impressed with the help I ordered one. When it came customer service helped me set the watch up and what a fantastic product it is. Text is easy SOS is great send location steps school mode is brilliant My 11 year old daughter thinks it is great.
I heard about this watch from a friend and couldn’t wait till it arrived. It’s the best solution to a 10.5 year old who wishes to ramble about the neighbourhood. Total peace of mind.
I can check in with my daughter when she comes out of school without the distraction of a mobile phone
Can’t praise this watch highly enough. We wanted a device that could call and text but was less embarrassing for our son than his previous flip-phone :) we wanted zero social media access so this seemed a good fit. We’ve had it a couple of weeks and my son loves it, he’s 11 and it’s helped with him being a bit more independent and he loves the star rewards and step counter. It’s given us peace of mind with location info and SOS and we’ve added lots of extra text templates to get around the tricky keyboard. All round great purchase, thanks.
The watch was amazing.It will give me peace of mind when he starts going to secondary school as he has ADHD.He loves wearing it!
Bought this for my daughter’s 10th birthday as I felt she was too young to have a mobile phone. It’s fantastic! She can go out to play and I know where she is, can contact me on her way to and from school and most importantly, can only be contacted by the people I approve via the app. Can’t recommend this highly enough
I imagine the same as all the other parents we wanted to be able to keep in contact with our daughter without having to do diwnbtbe riute of a mobile with social media etc.
I bought the spacetalk hoping it would be the middle ground but honestly thinking there’d be issues...
There’s none. It’s been perfect for her and us and our sons excited as it’ll be handed down to him when the time comes. I don’t write reviews... this deserved a review though. Check your area firvthe best sims for signal specific to you top tip! Thanks
My son is ASD and has been known to run! Recently, we spent 15 minutes searching around a park trying to find him. He's in Y6 so will soon be going to High School. We kind of wanted him to have a phone - and he wanted a phone to be able to text me. But we also knew he would lose it!
It's taking him a bit of time to get used to wearing a watch, but otherwise we love it! We already had a reward system so didn't need the watch one, but we're using it for 'watch specific' things. He uses the stopwatch to time a 2 minute toothbrushing session and gets a star for it. If he does more than 10,000 steps in a day he gets a star. Stars can help him get electronics time.
He loves being able to send messages not during school time, and it's really useful for me to let him know when I'll be picking him up. But one of the best things is knowing where he is all the time! It's got all the great things that as a parent are so useful and I love! And then cool stuff that he loves - which makes him wear it!
I wish the battery lasted a bit longer - but otherwise, it's GREAT! So worth the money and the 24 month swap period will be when he's in Y8, so possibly a good point for him to get a phone instead?
I bought this watch for an 8-year old, so he can call me from school and I can see his location. We've used it for one week now, and it does what it promises: the child can easily call, and I can call him. The location is not as precise as an iphone will give you, it's usually off by 30-40 m, which can make a difference when the kid is supposed to be in the school building. There is a message function but it works like the "dumb" phones, there are 3 letters to each on-screen button, and you toggle to the right one. A bit cumbersome for an 8-year old. There are pre-written messages but they are in English, so if you're using the watch outside the English speaking area, those are no use. However, we chose this watch because it has data encryption; none of the other kids smartwatches sold in Europe (aside from the Apple watches) are encrypted and that poses huge issues when kids are involved. Overall we are happy with the watch and hopefully future versions of the software will show the location with more precision and have a better messaging interface.
