How to Know if Your GPS Watch Works with the Find My Kids App
There are many models of watches, from numerous manufacturers, currently available on the market. However, in some cases, the standard application for GPS watches can have drawbacks, such as low accuracy to location, authorization errors, or the app not recognizing the watch, even after a successful connection and short-term use.
If you are unsure whether or not the Find My Kids app will be compatible with your GPS watch, the best way to find out is to download the Find My Kids smartwatch app from either GooglePlay or the AppStore.
While the Find My Kids app is compatible with many smartwatch models, it is worthwhile to understand that different watches from different manufacturers have their own peculiarities, and the Find My Kids app simply cannot be compatible with all existing watches for technical reasons.
Here are five ways that you can check to see if your GPS watch is compatible with the Find My Kids app.
The First Way: GPS Device
First, check whether there is a GPS sensor in your watch. There are many smartwatches on the market that synchronize with your smartphone via Bluetooth, and these are often confused with GPS watches.
For example, the popular model DZ09 smartwatch does not have a built-in GPS sensor, so tracking your child’s location with the model DZ09 is impossible.
The Second: The Watch Model
If you know the exact model of your watch, then it’s very easy to find out if it is compatible with the Find My Kids app.

The Screen Interface Is the Third Way
If there are no identifying marks or information on the watch’s packaging by which you can determine the model of the watch, you can look at the interface of the main screen of the watch. If the watch has a simplified interface, as seen in the examples below, then it is likely that the watches will be compatible with the Find My Kids app.
4th: Recommended Apps
Try to remember which application for the kid’s GPS watch was recommended to you by the seller. Generally, the Find My Kids app will be compatible with watch models, for which the seller recommends the following applications: SeTracker, SeTracker2, and Aibeile.
The Last: SMS Commands
The most accurate way to see if the watch will be compatible with the Find My Kids app is to check the watch settings using SMS commands.
You will need to send an SMS from your phone to the phone number of the SIM card that is installed in the watch. After the SMS is sent, the watch should send a reply message to your number. Before sending SMS commands, be sure to check that you have a positive balance on the SIM card in the watch.
The SMS command that requests the watch settings is the following:
123456 is the password from the watch. Depending on the manufacturer, the password on the watch may be different from the standard, so we recommend sending the following commands if the first does not work properly:
ATTENTION: All SMS commands should be sent in the form as it is written above, without adding spaces, or omitting any characters. Send messages in turn, and only if you do not receive an answer to the previous message.
The response message from the watch should look like this:
If you receive a response message, then your watch is compatible with the app. If you do not receive a response message, and your SIM card has a positive balance, then this likely means that the watch is not compatible.
