My buddy tag can be used both for children with special needs especially when the parent does not want their son or daughter to go off in a far distance.

Also, my buddy tag enables safety when your child is out of range. You are just required to download the app and put the bracelet on your child. Once your child leaves the 80-120ft range, you are notified through the app and get your child before it is too late.

  • This product is best used when going outdoors mostly in crowded places.
  • Parents with many little children can use my buddy tag to ensure kids do not go too far away from their watch.

Overview

My buddy tag app is available for all iOS and Android users and enables you to precisely locate the tracker’s location. Features such as geofencing function allows you to set up a small perimeter not exceeding 120ft and receive notifications each and every time your kid goes beyond this distance.

Surprisingly, you can also view your child’s previous/recent location history via My buddy tag app. An alert is also given each and every time the battery is low.

Basically, the tracker solely relies on Bluetooth technology. Therefore, being a Bluetooth enable device, you cannot be able to track your child once he/she leaves the 120ft perimeter with My Buddy Tag. In addition, you must have your phone and app open in order to receive notifications.

This tracker is therefore ideal when you and your child are going to a crowded area or in a family activity such as visiting Disneyland. This device may not work for kids going to school, camps, or even faraway places.

Although I have already mentioned that my buddy tag is considerably easy to use and has a simple interface. It may be difficult when setting up the device for the first time. Other than that, the app is intuitive, interesting and surprisingly easy to use.

You can track multiple children via toggle settings for each kid.

My Buddy Tag Customer Reviews

A handy tool for parents with multiple little ones

“I bought Buddy Tag three weeks ago and used it ever since while shopping with my kids, at the playground and in the shopping malls. I have three kids, age 6, 3 and 1.5 and I bought this watch mainly for my wife, because the youngest one often catches her attention, and it’s very difficult for her to keep them all in order.

The main feature why I bought this watch is the proximity alert, it is the main feature that allows us to track our 6-year-old when going out in crowded places. The app has an option to set the distance to far, medium and near and adjust it according to your needs. It is best to set the distance to medium, because the “near” option is too sensitive. When they are at the playground, I set the option “fsmall tracking devices for kidsar” so that the alarm wouldn’t go on every time he gets too far from us. All in all, it is working pretty great, and my son can play freely while I still see him. We are not worried about going to Disneyland next month, because the buddy tag will be with us.” -Mike Herbert

Great tracker, so glad I bought it

“The reason why I bought this bracelet, is because I have read the reviews and it said that it is water safety bracelet. I bought it and decided to test it. I dropped it into a cup of water, but the alarm did not go on. After that I tried dropping it in my sink, the alarm still did not go on. I called the customer support, and they explained that My Buddy Tag has to be on the hand for the alarm to go on and covered into enough amount of water. I put it on my son’s wrist, and tried it in the bathtub and it really worked. It was super cool and am very grateful that this kind of watch exists, since we have pool in our house, so I want to be super that my son is OK.”- Marcy

Overall Review

best child tracker watchAccording to many of my buddy tag reviews, it has been established as comfortable to wear and easy to use. It contains an alarm that will never fail to alert you each and every time your kid wanders off to far from your presence.

My buddy tag also comes by with multiple options which mean that you can clip it in your pants, your pockets and also your backpacks.

We would therefore recommend buddy tag for parents with kids aged 3 – 6 years. It would also be ideal for parents with multiple kids or a kid known to be a runner in the family, so they cam simultaneous track all the kids, each one named in the app of the caregiver.

Although My Buddy Tag has the least tested functionality, it has the best value in the market. This is because of its decent and reasonable budget. We definitely recommend My Buddy Tag for large families, so that the parents can easily track all of them without worrying.
