    Basic (GSM) smartwatch for kids (utilizing a SIM)

    I'm looking to get a smartwatch that has basic cellular connectivity for GPS tracking, the occasional call and messaging. I've seen several Generic-ish ones on Amazon that all seem to overlap, but what's missing seems to be 2-way SMS or good reviews... I'd love it to have WiFi as well.

    Any advice?

    Looks that way, I also found this which looks like an actual product (and not a hit or miss knock off like my previous links) but its WAY more expensive... -> https://www.doki.com

    This one says it'll last 24 hours under normal use, charges magnetically -> "A fully charged dokiWatch can last up to 24 hours under normal usage (36 hours on standby). However, battery life and charge cycles may vary by usage rate and various settings on dokiWatch." - "Charge dokiWatch using only the magnetic USB charging cable included in the box. You can plug the cable into an USB adapter to charge. Please ensure the adapter has an output of 5.0V-1.0A and no higher. This is to control the electrical current when charging and prevent short-circuiting"

    if you are only looking for a tracker , Samsung just made a LTE GPS tracker with a years service for $99 or so

    Amazon and Best Buy has them , battery lasts a few days
