I’m not one for gadgets and gizmos, but I have fallen in LOVE with the GizmoGadget™ by LG™. We got it for my 10-year-old son for Christmas last year (props to my hubby – totally his find!). He’s too young for a phone, but he likes to go around the neighborhood on his bike or scooter, sometimes stays home alone while I run a quick errand, and can be dropped off at extra-curricular activities. There are times when my husband and I really want to get in touch with him or would like to know where he is, but there’s no way we’re giving him the power of a smart phone yet (nor do we want yet another phone line on our bill!). I was SO skeptical of this thing that looks like an Apple watch without the price tag (it’s listed at $149.99 and costs us $5 on our Verizon bill every month).
But, get this: the GizmoGadget™ actually works. Like legitimately works. He has a pre-set list of ten people he can make calls to and from (mom, dad, Mimi, Papa, sister, etc.). When he calls, it’s as clear as a normal phone. There’s an automatic call feature so if he doesn’t hear the phone (you’d think that’d be hard to do since it’s a watch, but sometimes he mutes it), it will automatically answer so he suddenly hears our voices at his wrist. I wish I could get this function on HIS BRAIN when he selectively listens to me. Read More →
