Get the TCLMOVE app

  • You'll need the TCLMOVE app from the App Store or Google Play:
  • You can load up to 10 contacts into the watch as part of the family members group
  • The watch can have a battery life of up to two days depending on how it's used. If the watch is out of battery you won't be able to see your child's location.

Why the watch may show your child's in a different location

  • The watch uses GPS technology to detect your child's location. When your child's outside of GPS coverage, the watch will provide approximate locations.
