Love this product, really clever design with lots of great features. So nice to be able to contact my child, know where he is and also know that he is not playing games on his watch.
We would highly recommend Spacetalk, it serves our needs to communicate with our 9yr old without providing a phone. The lack of social media but communication capabilities is exactly what we wanted.
So far we’re very happy with the watch for our child. The watch is very easy to use to make and receive phone calls. Text messaging is a little tricky using the autotext keyboard but I’m glad it’s a function on this phone as others we’ve seen don’t provide this option. I’m sure our daughter will get use to it quickly. The call quality is excellent and you can store so many numbers. The on demand gps works very well, although an address doesn’t appear you can locate on the google map easily where they’re located. I would make one recommendation that the watch bands can be replaced easily as ours is a bit too long and it’d be good to have the option either when purchasing or diy later. The quality is right up there, it doesn’t look tacky and is made very well. The phone support is excellent when I needed to ask a few questions about the functions of the phone. We like the reward stars feature to list basic tasks like tidy room etc. gets them a bit more motivated when they receive a star reward notification. I highly recommend the product for kids with ASD as it’s a neat little trendy watch that doesn’t make them feel different from everyone else. Gives parents peace of mind that their child is contactable whilst away from home.
Easy to set up and operates well in telephone mode. I like the dedicated call list, safe zone and school hours features.
My 8 year old daughter loves her Spacetalk watch as an alternative to having a phone to which she is too young to have in our family. The texting ability was a big addition to what it offers. It gives her the freedom to talk to me when ever she likes when she is not with me. She even makes it a habit to text sweet messages to her granny.
My child really enjoyed using the watch but would love it if there were some games for when she gets bored.
My daughter loves the watch but unfortunately fell off her bike in the park and cracked the screen.
After much searching for the right device for my daughter we purchased the spacetalk watch and we cannot reccomend it enough. All the features are great, the coverage is incredible and it gives us peace of mind to allow our daughter a little freedom as we are able to locate and contact her at any time
Good watch and good customer support. My son won’t take it off
Great device and easy to use. Thanks
The device has been great for my son! Helpful to track him when he is going to and from school.
Also been able to contact his friends that also have them in this lockdown, so keeps him occupied.
I also found some fun with the 'all my tribe app', by changing the home screen of the watch during the day and updating it every now and again to keep my son happy.
I searched numerous websites and options. We use ours all the time. Highly recommend. Kids love it!
Really good watch for young children and it is super easy to use and manage.
The only area to improve is the battery life.
I love being able to contact our daughter and give her a safe, controlled, age appropriate way to contact us whenever she needs to. The GPS is accurate and I like the school setting so she can't play with the watch in class.
We charge the watch every night but we have quite a lot of problems with it running low and the battery dying quite quickly which can be frustrating.
I love that we control who can contact her and which contacts can be stored - this gives great peace of mind and we love the panic button feature. I'd love to see a few more background options made available.
Great little device, has been so handing communicating with our daughter. Longer battery life would make this even better.
Great way for both parents and children to feel reassured and connected.
We love that parents have control over contacts.
School mode is an excellent feature.
Waterproofing would be a bonus as children tend to rush into things and forget to remove the device. Although, in saying that, it is a great lesson in and way to develop some responsibility.
Its a very safe product. Could really do with a game or music. Something to attract the kids to use it other than making calls. I recommend it to any family when the child is not with a regular guardian
Spacetalk watch has been a terrific step towards independance and responsibility for our child. Being able to keep in contact is a great relief and benefit for us all. Very pleased with the watch and service.
10 year thinks it's great..
Parents think battery life is rubbish !
Bought for our son who has some learning difficulties. We wanted him to become a little more independent and thought some of the features would help. The alarms are fantastic so he doesn't have to be reminded all the time, pre set messages are fantastic, using the timer when practising his reading speed, messaging family members, having the confidence that he can contact us whenever he needs to or vice versa, having his own watch. The SpaceTalk has worked out even better than we had hoped for. We read past reviews so were aware that the battery should be recharged every night. We are sent a message if this needs to be done so we haven't come unstuck yet. Absolutely love it and thinking of buying another for his older brother.
Fantastic watch which is easy to use and navigate. Great quality but really should be water proof for the price. It's also quite big so looks huge on little wrists.
Furthermore, in order to use, you need to pay a monthly subscription of AUD5.99 for the All my Tribe app (which allows you to manage the watch / location services etc). Bit rich considering the watch is AUD349. Perhaps they could look at a one off charge for the app?
The watch has been a great stepping stone toward becoming more independent and eventually getting a phone.
As my son grew older and more responsible, I really wanted to give my son the same freedom I had growing up but I was worried about his safety. When I went back to full time work, this became a priority, as I couldn't always be there for him as much as I used to. Like you probably are, I was also reluctant to give him a smart phone at his age due to unfettered access to social media and the internet, not to mention the cost. I briefly considered an old school "brick" phone, but I was still worried he'd lose it.
A phone watch clearly became the best solution, and after reading reviews, it seemed like Space talk was the best option. I am so unbelievably happy our whole family are with this product. Swift delivery, hassle free ordering, the flexibility to choose the sim provider and plan, and a reliable product make this such a great investment. With just about every smart watch for kids that I looked into there were issues with the battery not lasting a day in the reviews, but I haven't had this problem at all with the Space talk.
But the absolute best part about this product is observing my son grow as a person with the freedom and security that came with the ability to communicate on his terms- Receiving texts saying "I love you mum!", out of the blue, have made my day. Hearing from friends and family that I've added to his contacts, saying how happy they were to hear from him and all the wonderful conversations they had with him has been so endearing. His confidence has grown so much now he has had more freedom, with the security of me being just a call away, it is just amazing to see.
I almost forgot that the reward star function has been a FANTASTIC motivator for him too! As you can load a picture of the reward prize, your child can see their reward each time you award them a star towards their goal. Plus you can change the difficulty (number of stars), enter personalised tasks, and you can vary the reward each time they reach their goal.
It's a must have for any family! Thank you Space Talk!
We love our SpaceTalk - what a wonderful peace of mind. A couple of things that could be added or changed - is a way to locate the watch with an alarm so if the watch has been misplaced in the home tan alarm can be set off by the app on the phone. Also, a way for the parent to get an alert if the child takes the watch off at school. And, once the watch has powered down, it won’t receive a message or call unless the child turns it on themselves. I’ve tried calling my son after turning off school mode as I was collecting him from school unexpectedly and couldn’t get through due to it being powered down and when my son misplaced his watch at home I couldn’t call it to find it as it was powered off. Other than that, a fantastic way to keep in touch!
I got this watch for my son for his 7th birthday. We both love it. His dad and I live apart so it’s perfect to keep in touch with either parent when he is with the other. Really easy to use.
