    I was just wondering if anyone used these for their children. We were thinking of getting one for ours when they are in school. We have some concerns about the watches getting hacked and some strangers being able to track them. They do have some great features for us I just don't know if they outweigh the possibilities of a hacker getting access to their locations.

    Several of my friends have their children wearing some sort of kids Verizon watch that they can play games on, text too and from and has a GPS. Each of these families seem to like this particular system as they speak highly of it. It gotten so much praise that my wife and I are contemplating on doing the same.

    Is it this one you're talking about?

    Verizon GizmoWatch ($179)

    Your little ones are the biggest part of your life, but you can’t be with them at all times. From daycare to after-school activities, your kids have a life of their own. The GizmoWatch lets your kids stay in touch with you, even when they’re off doing their own thing. The simple design and functionality make it easy for younger kids to use, and the automated alerts (if your child leaves your pre-set GPS boundaries) let you relax more when you’re not with your little ones.
    • Step Tracker This watch lets you keep an eye on your kiddos and gets them excited about fitness. This GPS tracker makes it easy for kids to set exercise goals, count steps, and schedule reminders for activities like sports or dance lessons.
    • Two-Way Communication Your child can call up to ten programmed numbers in case of an emergency, or just to check in. And if you need to get in touch, you can either call or send a text message.
    • GPS Boundaries The GizmoWatch makes it easy to know where your child is. In addition to regular GPS tracking, you can set GPS boundaries to keep your kids safe. If they cross a boundary, you’ll get an automatic alert. This feature is especially handy i f you’ve got a wanderer.

    That's the one, I believe it is about $4/month plus an activation fee of coarse. We didn't have this technology when I was growing up, I can't see us not having something to keep an eye on them. We just want to make sure we are not inviting trouble by using these devices.
