Wearable GPS tracker devices for kids

Worry less about the location of your child with these GPS tracker devices.


Question: What do your phone, your car and your kids now all have in common?

Answer: They can be traced with a GPS tracker device.


We're all aware of the dangers faced by young children such as wandering away from their parents or guardians. A GPS tracker device offers one solution to help keep them safe.

Let’s face it, it’s difficult to keep your eyes on your child every second of the day, no matter how hard you try. There may be that heart-stopping moment when a little one wanders out of sight in a busy park or play barn. Or, when older children are out playing with friends and tracking their whereabouts is tricky. They may have a mobile phone, but what’s the likelihood of them answering your calls or replying to your text messages when they’re too distracted having fun? Slim.

That’s where GPS tracker devices come in. You can check in on their whereabouts whenever you need. A win-win. 

There are a whole host of different GPS tracker devices available, from smartwatches, to wristbands, bag-clips and even patches. So, which one is right for you and your child? Check out our guide to the best GPS tracker devices for kids below.
