Since I have become a father in recent years my eyes have been opened to the various child friendly devices, particularly tracking devices. Following on from last year’s Liberty Watch comes Watchover’s Assure Slim SOS GPS Location Mobile Watch-Phone. This watch is suitable for children and the elderly and puts your mind at ease when they are out and about.
The Assure Watch-Phone Box & Set-Up
The watch is a good fit, it’s slim and would not look too bulky on the wearers arm. It comes in three colours pink, blue and black. The packaging is quite attractive and definitely makes the product stand out. Contained within the box are:
1 x Assure Watch phone
1 x USB Cable
1 x User’s Manual
The Watch Phone also comes with a mobile SIM card fitted. The SIM card needs to be activated and your subscription set up for the watch to work. The set-up process is quite straightforward and a quick run through of the quick set-up guide will have you up and running:
Step 1 – Activate the Sim Card and Warranty
Step 2 – Charge the Watch & Power On
Step 3 – Download the WatchOvers App. This can be done through scanning the QR code on the box, going to http://www.watchovers.com or search for the app in either the Android or iOS App Stores depending on what device you are using.
Step 4 – Register your Administrator Account. Follow the instructions to set up a new user account.
Step 5 – Pair the Watch with the App. This can be done through the app or by scanning the QR code on the box or in your manual.
Step 6 – Add Contact Numbers. You can add up to 16 contact numbers including the administrator in the contact list. Note: Always use the international dialing code when adding contact numbers.

Functioning as a watch, a tracker device and a two-way phone, the benefits of the Assure Watch-Phone are clear to see. You will have an extra layer of security that enables you to keep a watchful eye over your children or a loved one that you might be worried about.
The watch also provides a level of freedom for the wearer that might not have been afforded previously. In the event of an emergency the SOS alarm, call features, silent listening and tracking features are a great way to locate a loved one quickly. The Alert Messaging also sends alerts to the app in the event of an SOS, when Geo-Zones are breached or when the watch has a low battery.
The Assure Watch-Phone retails at €79.99, which is a reduction on the cost of last years Liberty Watch Phone, which will set you back €119.99. On the downside, there is an on-going subscription cost which may put some users off; this comes in at £7.95/€9.95 per month. This includes 30 minutes talk and all location data. Note : A subscription is required for Mobile Calls and Data, Pre-paid monthly, No Contract, Opt Out Anytime. You may also use your own sim card.
The watch comes with European sim card with a Spanish mobile number, with no roaming charges in 31 European countries and unlike a standard sim card, they use the strongest mobile network, enabling the watch to get mobile coverage even in weak signal locations, vital in times of emergency.
