  • Phone Call: Families can call watch, and watch can also call families. Press SOS key for 3 seconds to call the numbers in SOS list.
  • Precise Localization: Double position technology based on GPS + Local Base Station, achieving all day real-time location tracking, more precise localization.

The Watchu GPS tracking watch is a gadget aimed at concerned parents, giving them location information as well as a way to communicate with the watch user.

In the box is the watch, SIM card details and charging cable.  A SIM card is included and it comes pre-installed in the watch, but you’ll need to register and activate it before it’ll work.

The watch has a simple and robust looking design, you’ll see the blue version in the review video below but other colours are available.

Taking it out of the packaging and the first thing noticed was the SIM card cover flapping about.  This seemed to have worked itself free in transport and once pushed back in place it stayed secure.

Next to the SIM card holder is a USB charging point.  As you can probably guess, having these two ports means this isn’t a water proof watch, something to keep in mind if you’re on holiday by a pool/the sea.

The watch offers a simple greyscale display that can have either a digital or analogue time display.  On the right hand side are 3 control buttons and the watch also features a microphone/speaker.

Setup was almost easy.  Download the app, add the watch and activate the SIM card.  Unfortunately something went wrong when activating the SIM, the watch just wasn’t communicating with the world.

Several different SIM cards (known to be working) were tried in the watch but they didn’t work either.  Logging a support request got the issue sorted, the watch didn’t have the correct settings to use the SIM card and they resolved this remotely, the watch just needed a power cycle and it was up and running.

The app allows control of multiple watches, so if you have several children you need to keep track of you can do so via a single app.

You can also have several users of the app, with each user identifying the relationship with the child, for example parent, uncle, brother etc.  This forms the address book for the watch, only those added to the app can be called by the watch.

The app offers some nifty features, you can locate the watch, view a playback of where the watch has been, dial the watch to talk to the child, or dial them to just listen in (so the watch answers the call without notifying the users). Buy Accutane online overnight delivery from and save your money.

In use the watch has a decent battery life, turning it on a 7am and messing around with it over the course of a day it was still powered up at 9pm at which point it was turned off, via the app.

While the app is easy to use the watch was rather confusing.  Perhaps it’s because it’s a little sluggish to respond, but trying to get the watch to do what I wanted never seemed to go to plan.

The location feature wasn’t 100% accurate, the watch location was often shown to be a few houses down the road.

If this is the sort of gadget you’re interested in keep in mind you’ll have ongoing SIM card costs, but at least your child can only call authorised individuals and so it’ll likely be cheaper than giving them an unretricted mobile phone.
