When your child is ready for some independence, it can be hard to trust them (and everyone and everything else) enough to let them head out the door without you. But it's gotta happen eventually. If your child isn't quite ready for a smartphone, Gabb Watch is a kid-friendly smartwatch that can help both you and your child worry a little less.

Whether you want to stay connected with your kid while they're at school, keep an eye on their location while they're off playing in the neighborhood, or stay in touch while they're at an activity, Gabb Watch can do it all. It triples as a cell phone, GPS device, and interactive watch.

The watch has lots of cool features, including active GPS tracking, voice message recording along with customizable pre-set text messaging (along with fun emoji), a to-do list, step counting capabilities, emergency notification, a fun game where they take care of a pet, and it's water resistant. Lock mode scheduling lets you set limits through the parent app, like during school hours to only allow calls to and from emergency contacts.

The coolest feature that'll make you feel much better about giving your kid the independence they're ready for is customizable safe zones. You can set up your child's most frequent locations as safe zones, and you'll be notified when they exit or enter the safe zone. Of course, GPS tracking lets you keep tabs on where they go.
