  • Parents put in up to 5 phone numbers that can make and receive voice calls to the Filip Smartwatch
  • Parents can set safezones also known as geofences. When child leaves safe area, it alerts mom or dad
    smart locator uses GPS and wifi to track kids
  • Emergency button: Press red panic button on side for 4 seconds to activate
  • Mommy Heather likes that it lets her feel more comfortable to allow her older boy to explore the neighborhood
  • This same smart mom also said this after using the original Filip & newer Filip 2, “It has phone and GPS capability without any web browsing Internet. Also no camera which I really like. I’m also a fan of open DNS which is able to block all inappropriate content, from entering our browser in our house. And of course the Apple family sharing [capabilities] have been great. I can approve all purchases and see all incoming and outgoing emails.”
  • Pros: Filip smartwatch dominates the market and company offers great support
  • Cons: watches can be removed by child or someone without good intentions
