How to add GPS tracker watches to my plan

I have 2 GPS tracker watches for my children.  Both need SIM cards to work and are capable of 2 way calls to both mine and my husband's cell phones.  These watches are mainly used for safety and on the rare occasion to check in with us/our children.  Is there a low rate plan that we can recieve to activate these watches and not be paying huge amounts each month.  There is no text or data option on the watch.

 

Thanks

I am searching for the same thing: a GPS tracking plan for a tracking device for my child (who is autistic and would like to know his location). Any new plan or solution for this ?

Hello @alainski,

 

Fido does not offer any dedicated GPS tracking service at this time.

 

What I can suggest is get one of the $15 data only plan, stick the sim card in an old phone and enable location sharing. Put the device on the child and you will have a tracker. 

 

To set it up on an android device see here.

You can have Google maps on an Apple device and do the samething also.
