Apple Watch SE features: GPS | SOS feature | Offers parental control
A smartwatch list wouldn't be complete without an Apple Watch. While it's not made specifically with kids in mind, the Apple Watch SE is an excellent smartwatch for older kids with standout features plus parental controls. Along with enabling phone calls and text messages, the Apple Watch SE also tracks your child's sleep, has state-of-the-art health trackers, features an SOS capability, and pairs with thousands of apps.

Victoria Taylor, a parent, teacher, and founder of BestCaseParenting.com, told ZDNET that her kids use an Apple Watch SE and love the many features.
"It is easy to use, with access to apps, games, and more," she said. "The Health app also makes it easy to track activity levels and sleep patterns, helping parents stay in the know about their child's health."
In addition, you can utilize Apple's Family Setup to check your kid's location, set up shared contacts, implement parental controls like screen time usage, and more. They don't even need their own iPhone to have an Apple Watch -- they can pair it up with yours, so you're fully in control.
This smartwatch is recommended for older kids, ages 10 years old and above. Plus, kids can pick their favorite band thanks to Apple's wide selection.
