Verizon has announced two new connected wearables designed just for kids. The GizmoPal 2 and GizmoGadget are LG made kid-friendly smart wearables that allow parents to set GPS boundaries and keep tabs on their kids. The simpler GizmoPal retails for $79.99 and will offer LED notifications for incoming message and calls. Meanwhile, the $149.99 GizmoGadget offers a 1.3-inch touchscreen display that will provide more entertainment and interaction for your kids with a built-in pedometer and jump counter that encourage exercise. Both devices require a $5 monthly add-on subscription plan from Verizon that can be added on and cancelled at any time.
Introducing the new GizmoPal® 2 and GizmoGadget™ by LG, a pair of exclusive kid-friendly connected devices that look as cool as the smartwatches that mom and dad have, but available in multiple fun colors and designed just for kids.
The second-generation GizmoPal comes in pink or light blue, and features multiple LED status lights that indicate if a call or message is coming in from his or her caregiver, the ability to set GPS boundaries with real-time notifications, an IPX7 waterproof design and a voice recorder that allows children to playback their voice with fun effects.
Pint-sized fun with a touchscreen
GizmoPal's big sibling, the GizmoGadget, offers many of the same features as the GizmoPal 2, but offers a touchscreen display that gives children even more exciting features and provides a more immersive experience. New features include the ability to send pre-recorded messages and emojis from the interactive 1.3-inch color touchscreen, and a pedometer and jump rope counter to encourage exercise.
Your kids will feel like a secret agent as they send and receive voice calls and messages via GizmoGadget's instant two-way calling, which accommodates up to 10 numbers and preset messages. The device is offered in red or dark blue and is customizable with different touchscreen themes and optional colorful bands to personalize the device to your child's personality.
Finally, you can finally let your children roam around without fear of losing them. The GizmoGadget and the GizmoPal 2 give you peace of mind that your child is safe, thanks to a built-in GPS locator that notifies you, in real time, if your child strays from the GPS boundaries that you set in the device. Manage this feature, as well as all other settings, from the new GizmoHub™ app, available for download at Google Play and Apple App Stores.
Accessories and availability
Stickers for the GizmoPal 2 and interchangeable watchbands for both devices will be available to let your kids further stylize their new devices.
The GizmoPal 2 and GizmoGadget by LG will be available on November 5. The GizmoPal 2 is $79.99 and the GizmoGadet is $149.99. Both devices require a $5 monthly access fee that can be added and removed at any time to your existing Verizon Wireless plan.
