Smart watch recommendations for kids?

Does anyone have one for their kid? He’s too young for a phone and I’m sure he’d lose it even if I went that route. He’s down the street out of sight most days or running around the golf course our neighborhood is backed up to with his friends. Looking for something I can contact him on that also has GPS location. I have AT&T and they don’t have any options. Verizon isn’t worth switching to so their watch isn’t an option either. Right now the best option is looking like tick talk.

There are a bunch of them on Amazon that take a sim card.
Just an example:

That needs a phone like most others. I’m looking for something independent

If it takes a sim card you can use it without a phone.

  • 【WORKING AS AN ANDROID PHONE】 If you install an GSM 2G/2.5G Network SIM Card into the smart watch, you can make phone call directly from the smart watch, including answering and dial-up, send/reply messages. If the SIM card opened 2G or 2.5G traffic (make sure the SIM card can access the network), and you install an TF card into the watch, so you can visit the website or log on Facebook Twitter WhatsApp. You can also take photos and voice records, enjoying music on the watch etc…

Keep in mind that there are some horrendous security problems that have been reported on almost all kids watches, because they’re inherently cheap and developed by companies that have little interest in security or ongoing support.

I’ve been thinking of doing something similar for mine and every time I get ready to pull the trigger there’s an article somewhere about insecure they are.

I know, but I’m not looking for that. Looking for something geared towards kids. Looking for recommendations because nothing on Amazon has consistent reviews
