Hey everyone!

I need some help deciding between buying a Samsung 4G smartwatch or an unbranded kids' 4G smartwatch on Amazon for my 12-year-old child. I want the smartwatch to have access to WhatsApp, calling, video calls, texting, and the ability to track my child. I don't want to give him a phone, but I think a watch with these features would be helpful.

I am considering the Samsung 4G smartwatch, but I'm unsure if it still needs to be connected to a phone to work correctly. Can someone explain how the Samsung 4G smartwatch functions and also suggest a specific model?

He had a smartwatch with a sim card that I bought on Amazon, but it's not working anymore. It was a good one, sadly it's not durable.

Thanks!

The Samsung 4G smart watch functions similar to Android and runs WearOS with Google and Samsung Galaxy apps if you get a mobile data version of this smart watch, you don't need to setup with phone first.

Suggested model: Galaxy watch 6 Bluetooth with 4G connectivity

Thanks Kenz8M! I just want to confirm - does the watch have a sim card and does it not require a phone to set up? I'm a bit confused about whether it will be set up on the phone and sync and how the tracking system works in relation to the phone. I'm not sure which device will be tracked - the watch or the phone. Thank you!

The watch has a built in sim card and does not require a phone to setup. Tracking system works directly on the watch.

Thank you Kenz8M for providing the required information regarding the Samsung Galaxy Smart Watch.

Hi SookieH, you can also set up your watch without a phone and pair it with the Galaxy Wearable app later.

Please visit the link given to know more features about the watch and also you can purchase it online.

FYI I noticed something in SmartYhings to help children or family safety, look into that as well during setup.

As parents, we always want our kids safe.

Oh! Does that work on the watch too? We use Life 360, but it doesn't function on the smartwatch I bought on Amazon. The watch has its own app, which I downloaded to access it.
I would be great if that's work. Thanks for the tip.
