A good watch

We bought the kidsoclock watch as a gift for our 8 year old and it was an instant hit. It has the look and feel of a quality product, functionality is good and for a couple of questions we had about the set up – customer support was quick and helpful. It is quite large, but Our daughter loves it. Show details

Great watch

We love these watches. Kids are really enjoying being able to communicate safely with people we choose. And for us parents, we love the safety and convenience of being able to contact the kids when we aren’t right with them. The app is easy to use and features are everything we’d need. Show details

Perfect watch for kids

Great Watch, you can set school mode so it doesn't disturb during school time, auto switch on and off to save battery at night, and have GPS tracker and zoning.

Connection at our fingertips

We purchased two watches for our kids. They love them, as do we! It's such a comfort for the kids knowing they can contact us. It really reassuring being able to see their location. We've had a few technical issues but when we've emailed support with these issues they've been very fast to respond and offer assistance. Show details

Extremely happy son

I'm incredibly happy with the purchase, my son enjoys having the freedom of having his own phone/watch, while I am able to control who he calls and when, and even keep a close eye on all outgoing messages.
Will definitely recommend this to parents with young children/ tweens if I may. When my youngest is of age I will be giving him one as well. Show details

BAD CUSTOMER SERVICE AND EXTRA FEES

Good watch, when it works that is. After reading more reviews I realised this watch is very hit and miss. We had problems with the watch charging from day 1 and eventually it just stopped charging completely after 1 month of use. The customer service wasn’t great- communication and better language could have been used. Also they asked me to return the watch for testing as it is faulty and then told me they will charge me $49 if it is found to be faulty due to water damage. How can they market a product as water proof and then tell people they will charge them $49 on top of the postage they paid just for deciding there was water damage? It’s a joke really. I regret buying from this company. Do not suggest. Find another watch!! Show details

Excellent watch for 9year old!

This watch has been great for my 9-year-old giving him some independence but without access to the web. It was super simple to set up, even for someone not tech savvy like myself! I love that it has a disable function for when he is at school which locks the watch so he can only see the time and then it automatically turns on after school (or a time selected by yourself). Would recommend this to anyone wanting to hold off from buying their child a phone just yet. Really happy with it! Show details

Excellent kids watch

We purchased this watch for our son’s 8th birthday and it has been awesome! He loves it,
it has given him more confidence to go off on his own knowing he can get in touch with us if he needs to. And us piece of mind we can reach him without him having a phone.
It works exactly as described we’ve been really happy with it. Show details

Excellent

We’ve just bought our 2nd Kids O’Clock smart watch. It’s beautifully conceived and designed. GPS tracking, simple enough so a 4 year old can call parents, clear audio, full parental control including disabled mode for school time. Love the sense that it gives our kids that they can call us at any time. We can also call them with auto-answer after 10 seconds. Highly recommend Show details

Keeping in touch

Apr 3, 18:16
We bought two Kids O'clock Watches for our kids to be more independent and to keep in touch with friends. The kids have been very pleased to be able to send text and voice messages to their friends especially since we recently moved and they had to change schools. The kids use them to give us updates on their bike ride home and have given them a sense of independence. I would say the GPS location is more of a general area, but it works well enough. Show details

Questions & Answers

It seems that when it comes to the "add friend" function of the watch, children have full control of these contacts? I also can't monitor the chat my son has with any 'friends' who he has added himself. The watch advertises that parents have control over all contacts and messages from the app, but when my child adds a new friend who has the same watch as him, their conversations/messages arent available to me on the app. Just checking I'm not missing anything here.

Hi Emma, You can disable the friends function from the app.
Once its disabled Kids wont be able to use the function.
Please go to your app then go to device settings and please disable it.
Thanks

Oh OK. I don't want to disable it, just wanted to be able to monitor it.

My son wants to video call his contacts but it seems the only way he can do that is to bind them as family members. We don’t want them to have control of the watch though. Surely there’s another way?

The GPS location is not accurate at all. The watch seems to use also a source (symbol of a tower) that is the least accurate. Can I manually change that to satellite for example? The location is at least 3 km off?
We're living in NZ. But they claim it should be working fine in NZ too..
