General Issues

I have inserted the SIM card into the smartwatch, but it does not work?

To make the connection possible, first insert the SIM card into a mobile phone and permanently remove the PIN, as it is not possible to enter the PIN on the watch.
When the SIM card is reset, it should start normally.

&nbsp

&nbsp

Why does the application show SeTracker2 Device offline / no networking

When the sim card is inserted and the pin code removed, then the smartwatch may display "device offline" or "no networking". This is often because the IP address is wrong on the watch.
You can find the solution in this video: Kids Safety Device offline

&nbsp

&nbsp

Why does my mobile show full signal, when there is no signal on the watch?

The signal on most mobiles must not be confused with the signal on the watches.
Mobile phones today use (2G), 3G and 4G, where the watch use the 2G network. This means, that a mobile can have full 3G or 4G coverage.
Do you live in a densely populated area or outside bigger cities, there may be holes in the mast signal and you will experience signal strength dropouts.

&nbsp

&nbsp

I have purchased a Lyca prepaid mobile card, but it does not work?

Lyca is unfortunately the only sim card, that we have not yet got to work, because it's missing some APN, MNC and MCC information from the provider and unfortunately, they cannot help.
We therefore recommend, that you choose one of the major telecom providers, with a regular subscription, which can later be used on a mobile phone when the time comes.

&nbsp

&nbsp

Should I choose a prepaid mobile card or a mobile subscription?

We recommend buying a regular mobile subscription to the smartwatch. Our watches, especially the waterproof, do not benefit from the sim card being taken in and out of the watch each time the prepaid card has to be refilled.
Because, this can ruin the watch's rubber membrane, which we do not cover.
In addition, a subscription is often cheaper than a prepaid card, as the consumption expires faster on the prepaid card, as the rates are higher.

&nbsp

&nbsp

When do telecommunications companies stop using 2G?

2G network better known as the GSM network, used for voice, data and slow mobile broadband, where 3G and 4G networks are used for data, mobile broadband and internet.
For several years, telecommunications companies have talked about closing the 2G network to exploit the frequency range of the 5G network, also known as the Internet of Things (IoT). It is a long-term and expensive process, where European telecom providers still have a number of challenges before they can implement 5G. Therefore, it will take a minimum of several years before the first telecom providers begin to shut down their 2G network.

&nbsp

&nbsp

Why does the watch use 2G and not the 3G or 4G network?

Since the smartwatches can't go on the Internet, there has been no specific reason why they should use 3G or 4G.
In addition, the 2G network is the most widely used in Europe, covering the entire area, where 3G slowly is beginning to cover the largest parts, primarily urban areas. Similarly, 4G is also well-known for coverage, and now covers all major cities, while outlying areas still have a way to go.

&nbsp

&nbsp

Why is data used, when the watch is used only to dial?

There are minimal (typically maximum 75 MB per month) data usage from the watch, as they cannot access the Internet. The data used is, when the watch updates the GPRS signal.
This may have an effect for customers who use prepaid cards. Thus, it is different from provider to provider, how they choose to rate their traffic. We highly recommend, that if you are very dependent on the GPS function in the watch, then it is clearly best and often the cheapest way to choose a regular subscription with a little data included.

&nbsp

&nbsp

Which provider should I choose?

It is always a good idea to see, which providers are on the market. What they offer price-versus signal coverage. Is the purpose of the watch, that the GPS function is to be used a lot, so it is most reasonable to choose a provider with good 2G signal coverage in your area.

&nbsp

&nbsp

Does the watch work on weekends, when I have activated the "do not disturb" function on?

The "do not disturb" function only works on weekdays (Monday-Friday) as it is intended, when the child is in an institution /school.

&nbsp

&nbsp

Why can the smartwatch make outgoing calls, when the "do not disturb" feature is turned on?

The manufacturer has recently changed the function on the smartwatch without touch. This means, that on the watches with buttons 1 and 2, can call the first two numbers in the phone book, even if the "do not disturb" function is turned on.
The watches with touch will still not have the possibility to make outgoing calls as the touch screen is locked, and therefore the phone book cannot be accessed.
The SOS button always works regardless of whether "do not disturb" is active.

&nbsp

&nbsp

I have got a new telecom provider. Can I change the number of my GPS watch?

Yes, you can easily switch to another SIM card, with another phone number. Simply put the new sim card in the watch and use the new number.

&nbsp

&nbsp

The pedometer does not display correctly. What can I do?

The pedometer is dependent on several factors, which for example includes arm movements, height and gravity.
Just be aware, that if the signal is lost, then the watch does not count steps in this period. This can give a misleading picture of an entire day depending on how long the watch has been without signal.
If you have a problem with the signal, try to change the LBS status in that area.

&nbsp

&nbsp

Can I remove ads from the app?

The ads on SeTracker2 today can be removed on a 1, 6 and 12 month basis, which is the first thing you see when trying to remove the app's ads, as many feel they may be annoying.
If you remove the check mark that is below the automatic payment (Automatic Renewal), you will see a new price that will permanently remove the advertisements.
However, the advertisements after payment will only be removed on the English language version. You can choose your preferred language at the login page of the application.

&nbsp

Can the watches be hacked?

We are familiar with the Norwegian tests, which in back in 2017 tested 4 GPS watches.
The assessment is that the study is very defective, as they haven't hacked anything, as they had direct access to the watches.
Furthermore, none of our GPS smartwatch models were included in the test. However, there was one producer who subsequently chose to withdraw their product until they had secured their watches.

Of course, we can never guarantee that no one can hack the smartwatches. But since we ourselves have used the watches for our own children for about 4 years, we have of course also had to think about this.
Our conclusion is that a person who can hack our children's watches, also can hack our phones or our bank account.
That being said, the watch is considerably safer than our mobile phones, as any data cannot be used for anything.
