How Do I Activate the Tick Talk
This smart watch comes with a free Speed-Talk SIM card without a contract but is only compatible with T-mobile network. You will need to follow the instruction to activate the card and receive a phone number for the smart watch. You will also need to choose a plan for the SIM card as far as minutes of talk, text messages and how much data you want for the watch. T-mobile has a great plan for just $9.00 a month.
You can be charging the watch while you are getting the SIM card set-up as it takes 2-3 hours to do a full charge. There is an icon on the watch so you can keep track of the charging time. Insert the SIM card in the little frame on the side of the fully charged watch, gold chip down, lock it and you are ready to turn it on. As with most technology, the fun has just begin!
Exactly How Does The GPS Locate My Child?
The Tick Talk GPS feature will report the kiddos location to the app on your phone whether they are indoors or outdoors. It can take from 30 seconds to 1 minute for the locator to work. Their location will update every five minutes on the map or you can do it manually by clicking the blue button on the screen.
The watch itself, seeks the nearest public WIFI hotspot and if that can’t be reached, it seeks a GPS signal. If that fails, it seeks the nearest Cellular Tower signal and uses it. You can check out the other devices we have reviewed, and how they work, here.
The Tick Talk 2 is the second generation of wrist phones made just for kids with a GPS locator. It all started in 2014 by cell phone manufacturer with over 10 years of experience.
What Else Can My Kids Do With This Device?
This device will hold up to 13 contacts, if your child can’t get you right away, they can get in touch with the grandparents or an aunt, uncle, sister or brother.
This has one-way texting which means you can text your child to call you back or they can send you a voice message.
There is an SOS icon on the screen that your child just needs to touch or hold it for three seconds and it will contact an emergency number that has been preset. This is so easy for the young ones to operate.
You as the administrator, can call the Tick Talk without detection and listen to what is happening around the child.

The Tick Talk 2 is the latest technology for tracking your child and their whereabouts on the market. They can call you back if you send them a text, and you can hear what is happening with them undetected. If they are in trouble, they just use the SOS icon and you are there with them.
