A: We don't recommend it. Our GPS trackers carry an IP67 waterproof rating. This means they've been engineered to withstand being submerged in water up to 3 feet deep, for up to 30 minutes. However, this is 'lab conditions' where the water is still and pure. It's best to remove the tracker before going swimming.
A: A SIM card with an active data plan from a GPRS network, and SMS capabilities.
A: Our watch can log onto the Global Positioning System for free, but in order to send this information to the parent's cell phone, data usage is required.
A: Battery life is dependent on usage, but rest assured that even with heavy usage, our battery will last the entire day. And while its very possible that our battery could last 2-3 days, we strongly recommend charging it nightly, just to make sure.
A: Yes. Our devices operate independently from the parent's phone. So even though Lil Tracker requires a SIM card from a GPRS compatible network (We recommend Speedtalkmobile.com) parents can use any network (AT&T, Verizon, Sprint, etc.) and still track or communicate with Lil Tracker.
A: No. At the moment our app is supported by the Android and iOS operating systems.
A: No, a voice plan is not required.
A: If your Lil tracker is used daily, you'll use about 15-25 MBs of data per month. This includes data for locating your child's position, and sending 'voice chats', back and forth with the tracker.
A: You can program up to 15 names and numbers in the watch's phonebook. Your child simply swipes the touchscreen and taps on the desired contact to place a call.
A: As our GPS watches work on a mobile network, there is no range. As long as your watch is connected to the cell phone network, you can interact with it: across the street or halfway across the world!
A: Our GPS watch can work in countries all over the world, but please be advised if you leave your home country, there will be roaming charges. It works just like your mobile phone.
A: No. The WiFi bars you see on the face of the watch are to help find your child's position in cases where the GPS network is unavailable. We call this WiFi positioning. The watch does not use WiFi to replace network data usage.
