Best smartwatches and GPS trackers for kids in Kuala Lumpur Little Steps Asia

There are some pretty nifty and intuitive digital smartwatches and GPS trackers in Kuala Lumpur. Smartwatches don’t just have to be for the grownups in the family; they are great for kids too. Many display the time and have educational (and fun) games, the all-important selfie mode, music streaming, messaging, and activity tracking to keep those little feet moving. As parents, there are many safety features to ease your mind, such as emergency calling, GPS tracking, and SOS buttons to ensure your kid’s safety.

It’s probably your worst nightmare to go shopping in Mid Valley Megamall or Petaling Street market, and your little one gives you the slip and is nowhere to be found. Smartwatches are a great way to keep track of your children when they’re at school or out and about with friends. You can program up to five numbers and teach them how to show and tell – show a safe adult, ask them to phone mummy or daddy, and then remain in the same place until you or someone you know comes to get them.

Child-friendly smartwatches should be durable to withstand clumsy knocks and bumps and offer enough fun features to keep them interested. It will give your kids a sense of independence even if you are not ready to buy them a costly smartphone.

Ultimately, they’re a great bit of tech if you want to give your kids a sense of independence but aren’t quite ready to buy them a smartphone. In the Little Steps guide, you’ll find everything from recognizable brands such as Fitbit and Garmin and a range of prices to suit all budgets.

If safety is your top priority, you can buy some smartwatches with additional security features such as geofencing, tracking, and notifications. These will alert you when your child enters or leaves a safe space; some can also alert the authorities. As with all gadgets, keep the software on the watch and the apps up-to-date to keep it safe from security flaws.
