LG and Verizon unveils new kid-tracking smartwatches

GizmoPal 2 and GizmoGadget are the two new smartwatches designed for kids and released respectively by Verizon and LG, both devices are aiming to control and track your kid’s position and stay in contact with him in case of emergency.

GizmoPal 2 is an updated version of the first GizmoPal (that’s obvious), the device does not have a touch screen, but your kid can see that you’re calling through a LED light alarm, but he can only send you pre-recorded voice messages and emojis. The LG model comes with some extra features, the device is equipped with a touch screen that allows your kid to call you with a swipe and even change the watch face he wants, the GizmoGadget is also packed with a pedometer to track your active kid’s activities, well, i don’t know if you need that!
