Parents who aren’t ready to hand over a smartphone to their kids and tweens, meet FiLIP 2. So much more than a watch, this wristband tracks your child’s location via GPS, includes calling or texting with five parent-approved contacts, and features an emergency-alert button that’ll ping their location.

$149.99 at AT&T.
