Product Review and Buyer's Guide: GizmoPal2

When it comes to our little ones, their safety is always a top priority. But, they might be too young for a phone. The solution conveniently fits on their wrist. This is our Product Review and Buyer’s Guide for the GizmoPal2.

The GizmoPal2 is easy for kids to use—they only have to remember two buttons. There’s a phone button to make and answer calls. There’s a play button to play fun sounds. Pressing both at the same time activates a voice changer.

Setting up the wrist-tracker and phone is easy. Press the play button to turn the device on and then it will automatically activate. You’ll know activation was successful because it will say “Yay! I’m ready.”

To register as a caregiver download the GizmoHub app and follow the onscreen prompts. You’ll need the GizmoPal2’s number, which can be seen by pressing either button on the device after activation. Once registered, you can use the app to track the GizmoPal2’s location, change the device’s settings and power it down. The map will even guide you to the gadget’s location.

As far as kid wearables go, the GizmoPal2 isn’t a bad option, if the kids are really young. If your children are a little bit older, the GizmoGadget is the way to go. It has more features, like texting and voice messaging, but stays away from downloadable apps.

The GizmoPal2 does even less. It makes phone calls and plays sounds. There’s no touchscreen, no games, no texting. It’s perfect for parents who need to stay in touch with their kids, but aren’t ready to give them the latest iPhone or Galaxy. The device is $79.99 and comes with a two-year contract from Verizon. There’s also a $40 activation fee.

Keeping tabs on your kids is important, and the GizmoPal2 is a good way to have peace of mind. They’re never more than a phone call away.
