GPS Tracking Watch for Kids: Is it Spying or Good Parenting?

It's 10 PM. Do you know where your children are? Well, with this GPS tracking watch, you definitely do. Here's the Nu.M8 digital watch that lets parents track their children's whereabouts through a secure website (it'll even overlay the location on Google Maps).

And to answer the obvious question: an alarm will be triggered if the watch is forcibly removed.


Is it too much or just being a prudent parent in today's environment?

I looked at this because we're planning a week at a very busy beach and my 13 year old daughter doesn't want to be tied to her parents all the time. I remember how great it was to run down the beach by myself, but am terrified at the thought of my 13 year old out there by herself (even if we're just up the beach a bit). Is this waterproof?

...over the weekend a 7 year old autistic child in Nova Scotia followed the family dog into the woods and could not be located for jacket, hat or gloves's winter, he was eventually found suffering extreme hypothermia and later died, had he been wearing a gps tracking watch most likely he'd still be alive....

I think it should be a must for anybody who has a child under 8. You are hopeful you will never be a parent who get's the call your kids been missing/kidnapped, but it can happen to anyone, you turn your head or trust someone for a split second, and next thing you know, your child could be gone. I watch my son always, but you still just bever know. I do not think that these things should be used for spying though, but also there are ones that track speed, and I think it would be nice to know how fast a teen is driving when they are alone with friends also. One parent said their child would talk the kidnappers ear off and they would beg to give them back, but lets be realistic... that doesn't happen
