Parents app

Always see where your children are and communicate with them

Next to exciting outdoor games, Wanderwatch offers the best GPS tracking solution in the market today. Coupled with easy to use chat functionalities you can have piece of mind, while your children are playing outdoors on their own. The parents app is available for Android and iOS devices.

The parents app makes registering easy

Registering Wanderwatch

Before your child can go out, the Wanderwatch needs to be set-up. The Parents app provides an easy step-by-step installation wizard, so you will be up and running in no-time.


  1. Load the QR code screen in the Wanderwatch. See here how to do that

  2. Start the registration wizard in the parent's app. Start the app, press the 3 horizontal lines in the top-left of the screen and select "Register" from the menu.

  3. Follow on-screen instructions

Note : You might want to install a Wifi network on the watch first. This saves on 3G cost and makes over the air updates possible.

On the watch, click on the 3G icon with the tree to open the network menu.  


Main features

 

Always see where your child is with our GPS tracking feature and map

Seeing your kid on the map

When you open the map on your app, the Wanderwatch will know instantly and it will reply by sending regular location updates (about every minute). If your child pressed the Emergency button, you will receive an alarm in the app and location updates are enabled instantly.

Once you close the map or the app goes into the background, the Wanderwatch will stop sending location updates automatically. 

Note : Depending on the location of the child, update could be late or less accurate. In 95% of case, your child will be inside the yellow circle, with the pin as the most probable location. Note that off-road positioning is less accurate.



Chat any way you like with your child
