    My granddaughters can reach the family members any time they want to and I can always be aware of where they are. Their safety is most important and I would recommend these to anyone. It was only $5 per month per unit on my phone bill for peace of mind!

    Didn’t get what I expected. Watch was really a kids watch. I thought it was an adult smartwatch. Not even close.

    Not sure if I like it or not as it came with absolutely NO INSTRUCTIONS! I’m going to Verizon next week to see if they can help figure it out, if not I will be returning it. So disappointing.

    As others mentioned, the product came with NO instructions or information. When I took it to the Verizon store to get help/get it activated, the watch had no volume. It said one word and then stopped working. I have it packaged and ready to return.

    I don’t remember this saying refurbished when I purchased it. OK, fine. Came in plain box with no instructions. OK, fine. But I called Verizon to get it activated and the phone is locked and can’t be activated! Don’t waste your time

    Not sure if its defective but there is no screen fires only the phone picture when calling someone. I thought it was a watch, there is nowhere to tell time.

    Much larger than version 1. Too big for a 5-8 year old hand.

    My boys are 6 and 8. I bought 2 of these, yes the watch is larger than I expected, but that’s ok. If you hold the call button down it tells you the time. I tried to set this up over the phone with Verizon and they couldn’t, went to store and it took 10 minutes to set up both. No instructions came in the box, but you can find them on line. All you need to know it to download the GizmoPal2 app and set up 4 contacts for the watch. You can change the setting in the app so that you can call the watch and if they don’t answer it picks up automatically and lets you listen for up to a minute. We will test it out tonight, but so far, I’m glad I bought them.

    I was under the impression that it hadoesn’t a clock option on the screen which it doesn’t, it only has basic calling and only hold 4 contact I thought it held 10 like the Gizmo Gadget.

    This is great! More of a tracking device than a phone, really. It’s simple to use which is good. Other gizmos cannot call each other so that could be good or bad. Bad in my case but I just 3 way call my kids so they can talk to each other. I gave it 4 stars only because there is no way to see if you missed a call. It doesn’t alert you or anything. Also my daughter is 6 and the band is so thick it irritates her a little but idk what you do with those little arms and a watch band. If it could be velcro or soemthing that would help. She cannot take it off which could be good or bad. Bad in my case. Overall for ages 4, 6 I think this is ideal. I would just allow them to see missed calls somehow if I were to suggest a change. Thx for relieving some of my anxiety about my kids being out of touch all day LG!

    The product itself is great, but I am returning this because the activation costs were so high, it was more cost effective to buy the nicer model directly from Verizon.

    I bought 2 watches for my 11 and 8yr old boys. They love them. My only complaint is it doesn’t actually show the time or anything else besides the 3 little symbols and the screen will probably be covered in scratches very soon. I’ll have to find protectors. As for the function, calls sound pretty clear and has lots of cool features like auto answer so I know I won’t be ignored, and silent modes during school hours. The gps will track them to a general area. I pressed track while my kids were at home and it said they were next door. In the event that they were to ever go missing, that would at least narrow it way down, tho. Overall I’m very happy with my purchase. Thanks Groupon!

    No instructions, but just download the app Gizmo. Super simple to set up! You can add for contacts! Gives me peace of mind! I would give it 5 stars, for quality. I can easily call out on it and receive calls. The only reason I gave it 4 stars is it is not navy blue. It is turquoise. For an extra $5 a month added to my bill I am thrilled! No contracts either! Very happy!

    This was a replacement for an identical phone that was lost during a move. My 9 year old loves it. It is great for keeping track of kids because of its location finder. It’s also perfect for this age group because it straps onto her wrist. I was reluctant to purchase a refurbished replacement but we have had no issues with it. Looks and works like new.

    I love the gizmopal1 and decide to upgrade and this perfect for my child! Easy to use and control phone usage. I would reccomend this for anyone.My child is 12, she had an iphone but lost her ability to have it thanks to the internet, so this is a perfect option for her…i set who see can call and who can call her! The plus its not dainty or fake feeling and additional size band can be purchased later on!

    Purchased this for my 6 year old son since he’s been going to friend’s houses in the neighborhood more independently. Very easy to set up, Verizon waived the normal $20 activation fee due to a special they were running and it’s only $5/month after that. The app makes it easy to set up, the call clarity is very good considering he’s answering me from a watch and the GPS is a little slow to load but accurate once you give it a minute.nIt gives me the peace I need to get a hold of him when I need him or know that if he needs me, he can easily call. Highly recommend to anyone who has a child too young for a phone.

    Purchased this product in August for my son’s birthday in December. His birthday is in 2 days, so we just added it to our plan and the watch is a complete bust. It does not have a display screen and won’t text or do anything except call. So extremely disappointed and now I have no gift for my son. Beyond frustrated!!

    The GPS does NOT work if the phone is turned off. Useless for me since I wont know if my daughter made it safely off the school bus if she has it turned off and she forgets to call me to let me know she made it to the youth center OK. 🙁

    Sadly it stopped working after 5 weeks of use. It will no longer charge but the green light shows as charging. I guess you get what you pay for, now I have to go and buy from Verizon which I should have done in the first place. What I thought was going to save some money will now cost more

    I had no idea you had to have a plan just for the watch. That you couldn’t blurmetooth it through your already working Verizon phone. How simple that would Be? But, I had to go get a number for it and they said it wouldn’t work. So now I have 2 gizmopals sitting here. Totally wasted my money. Call me dumb but not everyone is tech savvy.

    It’s ok. You can call 4 contacts and see location from the app but that’s it. You’d think a watch with a big interface would at least show the time. It’s also very big and clunky for use by a child. It covers my 10 year olds entire wrist.
