The chart below details the differences between the iGPS Wizard Watch Phone and other family locator GPS tracker devices from Doki, HereO, Verizon/Gizmo, and TickTalk.

A Full-featured locator and tracking device for your child

It’s clear that the iGPS Wizard Watch Phone is a full-featured GPS tracking device for children, especially in comparison to the top competitors.. It has all the features that help parents Contact, Locate, Monitor and Protect their children. But let’s look at some of its less obvious advantages.

A ‘safe space’ for your child

A key feature of the iGPS Wizard Watch Phone is that it offers parents a closed eco-system, giving your child a safe space. As the controller of the device, the parent can decide who can call and send messages to your child’s device, and who your child can call out to. This ensures that your child won’t receive scam and robocalls or calls from predators.

The device is also not openly connected to the internet like a smartphone. The child cannot download or add distracting apps or games to the device. This effectively eliminates the risk of screen addiction, device distraction, social disconnection, and other problems associated with giving children an internet enabled device like a smartphone.

Creating routine and structure in your child’s life

Another important set of features for the iGPS Wizard Watch Phone that are often overlooked relate to your child’s daily routine. As parents, our lives are very busy. It’s difficult to manage your child’s daily routine. The iGPS Wizard Watch Phone solves this by allowing you to schedule daily activities in the iGPS App’s calendar. This will then alert your child when they need to be at a pick-up point, practice session or other activities.

It’s also possible to review your child’s daily routines with the history playback feature. This allows parents to identify changes in their child’s daily routine. Some changes can indicate more serious issues, like depression, bullying, or associating with the wrong crowd.
