Real-Time GPS Watch Alerts Parents
Parents understand that kids can wander or run off in a flash and that is why parental caregivers are always keeping a watchful eye on their children. However, keeping a close and watchful eye on a child can sometimes be a challenging task, especially if a parent and child are at a location with lots of hustle and bustle. Grocery stores, amusement parks, zoos and other places where a child can be distracted and zoom off can turn a pleasant day into a nightmare. With child safety being at the forefront of any parent’s mind, GPS watches that offer real-time tracking are giving moms and dads yet another way to monitor their kids.
GPS Tracking Watches For Kids
Tracking systems have been used extensively over the past ten years for a number of different uses from fleet tracking to personal monitoring. The reason is because there are a great number of businesses and families who could benefit from having real-time access of vehicles, assets or loved ones. This is why it was only a matter of time before manufacturers of GPS tracking systems eventually began to develop cost-effective monitoring hardware that could meet the needs of the everyday family. Everyday families seeking a tool to quickly locate their children in an emergency situation or for any other reason.
When a parent has their child wear a GPS watch that tracking bracelet/watch will constantly send out its location to a off-site computer server. This computer sever takes that positional data and displays it in a readable format over a maps program such as Google Earth. The mapping program, which is accessible through computer or smart phone, allows the parent to instantly see where their child is at. All of this happens in fractions of a second, giving the parent total oversight of their children all thanks in part to the help of satellite monitoring devices.

“The two demographics that contact our online store regarding GPS watches are parents looking for a senior GPS device for their loved ones facing Alzheimer’s related issues and parents of children who have wandering tendencies”, a Tracking System Direct representative explained. “The real-time GPS watches give parents of typical kids, special needs kids and overly hyperactive kids a simple and reliable method to ensure their safety.”
Costs Of Real-Time GPS Watches For Kids
For a quality monitoring device capable of meeting the needs of any parent, a GPS watch will cost between $339.00-$359.00, depending if the parent chooses a locking mechanism for the real-time bracelet. Parents should also be aware that real-time trackers require data plans, which basically means monthly service requirement. Standard real-time monitoring service is only $29.95, and the parent can upgrade the plan to also offer two-way voice for only $5.00 more per month.
