So easy to use and granddaughter loves it. Gives parents peace of mind. To be recommended.
Very happy with the product, customer service and app but have just had a problem where one twin’s charger is not seeming to charge successfully. If I swap it over for the other charger all is good so obviously where the problem is. That said, highly recommend!!!
We've tried kids smart watches previously and been disappointed by battery life, calling reliability etc etc. Spacetalk is expensive, especially if you have more than one child to buy for, however, batter life is good, its easy to use and has allowed our 10 year old to go to the park a few streets away from us to meet his friends without me tagging along and sitting freezing my bum off on a bench ❄️ my son calls me when he's out of school if he's wants to walk home with his friend and he's liked having the option of phoning grandparents and texting his aunty-they're also liking this new contact. If left one star off just as I'd of liked to be able to video call but also understand that facility would come with additional risks so its probably a good move from Spacetalk. It's allowed my son to have gradual and limited freedom with support and allowed me to ensure boundaries are adhered to and the ability to call to check in or to look at the map to check he hasn't wandered further than agreed.
This watch has made my Son so happy. He can call his family and now his friends as he has recommended it to everyone.
Watch is really good.. just battery is not so good.. u need charge it every day. If I would know it , before I buy. I would maybe get something cheeper not worth of the price
I searched numerous websites and options. We use ours all the time. Highly recommend. Kids love it!
Really good watch for young children and it is super easy to use and manage.
The only area to improve is the battery life.
I love being able to contact our daughter and give her a safe, controlled, age appropriate way to contact us whenever she needs to. The GPS is accurate and I like the school setting so she can't play with the watch in class.
We charge the watch every night but we have quite a lot of problems with it running low and the battery dying quite quickly which can be frustrating.
I love that we control who can contact her and which contacts can be stored - this gives great peace of mind and we love the panic button feature. I'd love to see a few more background options made available.
Great little device, has been so handing communicating with our daughter. Longer battery life would make this even better.
Great way for both parents and children to feel reassured and connected.
We love that parents have control over contacts.
School mode is an excellent feature.
Waterproofing would be a bonus as children tend to rush into things and forget to remove the device. Although, in saying that, it is a great lesson in and way to develop some responsibility.
Its a very safe product. Could really do with a game or music. Something to attract the kids to use it other than making calls. I recommend it to any family when the child is not with a regular guardian
Spacetalk watch has been a terrific step towards independance and responsibility for our child. Being able to keep in contact is a great relief and benefit for us all. Very pleased with the watch and service.
10 year thinks it's great..
Parents think battery life is rubbish !
Bought for our son who has some learning difficulties. We wanted him to become a little more independent and thought some of the features would help. The alarms are fantastic so he doesn't have to be reminded all the time, pre set messages are fantastic, using the timer when practising his reading speed, messaging family members, having the confidence that he can contact us whenever he needs to or vice versa, having his own watch. The SpaceTalk has worked out even better than we had hoped for. We read past reviews so were aware that the battery should be recharged every night. We are sent a message if this needs to be done so we haven't come unstuck yet. Absolutely love it and thinking of buying another for his older brother.
Fantastic watch which is easy to use and navigate. Great quality but really should be water proof for the price. It's also quite big so looks huge on little wrists.
Furthermore, in order to use, you need to pay a monthly subscription of AUD5.99 for the All my Tribe app (which allows you to manage the watch / location services etc). Bit rich considering the watch is AUD349. Perhaps they could look at a one off charge for the app?
The watch has been a great stepping stone toward becoming more independent and eventually getting a phone.
As my son grew older and more responsible, I really wanted to give my son the same freedom I had growing up but I was worried about his safety. When I went back to full time work, this became a priority, as I couldn't always be there for him as much as I used to. Like you probably are, I was also reluctant to give him a smart phone at his age due to unfettered access to social media and the internet, not to mention the cost. I briefly considered an old school "brick" phone, but I was still worried he'd lose it.
A phone watch clearly became the best solution, and after reading reviews, it seemed like Space talk was the best option. I am so unbelievably happy our whole family are with this product. Swift delivery, hassle free ordering, the flexibility to choose the sim provider and plan, and a reliable product make this such a great investment. With just about every smart watch for kids that I looked into there were issues with the battery not lasting a day in the reviews, but I haven't had this problem at all with the Space talk.
But the absolute best part about this product is observing my son grow as a person with the freedom and security that came with the ability to communicate on his terms- Receiving texts saying "I love you mum!", out of the blue, have made my day. Hearing from friends and family that I've added to his contacts, saying how happy they were to hear from him and all the wonderful conversations they had with him has been so endearing. His confidence has grown so much now he has had more freedom, with the security of me being just a call away, it is just amazing to see.
I almost forgot that the reward star function has been a FANTASTIC motivator for him too! As you can load a picture of the reward prize, your child can see their reward each time you award them a star towards their goal. Plus you can change the difficulty (number of stars), enter personalised tasks, and you can vary the reward each time they reach their goal.
It's a must have for any family! Thank you Space Talk!
We love our SpaceTalk - what a wonderful peace of mind. A couple of things that could be added or changed - is a way to locate the watch with an alarm so if the watch has been misplaced in the home tan alarm can be set off by the app on the phone. Also, a way for the parent to get an alert if the child takes the watch off at school. And, once the watch has powered down, it won’t receive a message or call unless the child turns it on themselves. I’ve tried calling my son after turning off school mode as I was collecting him from school unexpectedly and couldn’t get through due to it being powered down and when my son misplaced his watch at home I couldn’t call it to find it as it was powered off. Other than that, a fantastic way to keep in touch!
I got this watch for my son for his 7th birthday. We both love it. His dad and I live apart so it’s perfect to keep in touch with either parent when he is with the other. Really easy to use.
A timer, if it had a timer it would be the all in one. My son has special needs so the tracker is to help to and from school with buses but he misses his timer from his vivo jr it helped him a lot. Please add a timer to an upgrade :)
The SpaceTalk watch is perfect for kids who aren't ready for a mobile phone. My child can contact me when she needs to, and I have peace of mind knowing where she is. The only downside is the fact it's not waterproof - its made for children so I feel it really should be. Most other similar watches are swim proof, but their tracking/mobile capabilities dont compare to the SpaceTalk.
My daughter has been using spacetalk, since Christmas. Its been really good, so far. We really enjoy the product. My only thing would be, is the battery life on the product. My daughter puts it on charge every night and turns it on from 7am till 6.00pm when she gets home. the battery life is not that long, which sometimes is an inconvenience when i cant message her.
Good product but just didn’t suit our needs.
It is a fantastic way of having communication between my son and myself that I can control, unlike mobile phones. I set alarms for him as reminders in preparation for school in the mornings and use the rewards to recognise his good work. The only thing that disappointed me was the band on the watch strap that holds it down, broke only a week of my son owning it. Have been using a hair band since. Apart from that, it is a wonderful product.
My little cousin absolutely loves her watch, she wears it to school everyday! Such a great way to keep in touch with the family.
