So I've looked at all the forums and this seems the best one and under the right heading. Not sure how much the gurus on here can help as I wont have all the information but this is where I am at.

I have bought a Kids GPS tracker watch that is on Ebay (It's called Topwatch) It's made in HK, the instructions are in ChEnglish. There is no support whatsoever so I am trying to figure this out myself...

The watch takes a micro sim and has the functionality to make calls to 2 predefined numbers and also for GPS tracking. There is an app in Android and iOS called Kidscare.

There a 2 lights. The sim light flashes green when it's in and operational (I have that working and we can make calls no problem) and the GPS flashes green when it's found a satellite. That's also working. So what's wrong you ask...

Well, I have a Lebaro sim with inclusive minutes and data. When I put the sim in, the app says 'online' and all is good. However, after about 10 minutes it says 'offline' in both Android and iOS and there is nothing I can do to get it back on unless I remove the sim and put it in again.

Whilst this I presume could be any number of reasons, I do have 2 questions. 1) Did I actually need data on the sim in the first place as it's my phone and app that's displaying the location of the watch and 2)Is it maybe going offline because I have the wrong sim? Lebaro uses Vodafone which is fine in my area but I have read that maybe the fact that it's not 2G only might be a problem which is why it says 'offline' after 10 minutes or so.

There is no way to change internet settings on the watch but then I dont think it needs data anyway now I've read around this. But the fact its says offline (and online sometimes) makes me think it's a GPS problem as isnt that how the watch is 'linked' to the apps?

Any help on this would be greatly appreciated Smile

Thank you.
