      Hi Anshu – Use any SIM other than Jio. I use Airtel and it works like charm. Once Airtel SIM was inserted and powered up the watch, time and GPRS are setup automatically and I see ‘E’ symbol. You can use app to update all the features (update SOS numbers / other contacts / set Geo fence / Alarm…so on) but it is not so great in tracking / finding location etc..its goofy. Good thing is that the phone also works with SMS commands, using which we can set every of above functions and get precise GPS location. I use SMS commands to get location or monitor which are main uses for me.

      watch calls your mobile number given in the SMS. Its one way audio – you can hear whats going on around the kid wearing the watch.

      To Get Location, without ringing the phone, we need to send 2 SMSs.
      1. step is to enable GPS radio on watch.


      2.wait for a minute or two for GPS to stabilize, then send 2nd SMS


      you will get GPS co-ordinates in Google URL format.


      This last one is my favorite, as we get so detailed message which includes, date, time, Battery % left, Accuracy of co-ordinates and Speed (if travelling) along with Google URL with co-ordiates, but unfortunately it rings the phone continuously until kid presses any button to stop it.


      they they change the code to send SMS without ringing it would be awesome feature..

      I use only above 3 SMS most to monitor or find kids location.

      let me know if you need any info

    Hi Alex,

    Happy to find you!
    We are using this watches for 1,5 years now. IT got time to get them replaced, so i orders 2 new ones.
    I used the same Sim cards and add them to my SeTracker account. One new watch is working, i can call it, but i can not set iT on SE-tracker bevause i get the “ device is not networking” all the time! That means i just cant program the watch!
    I even set the apn settings by sms from the SIMYO provider. All looks fine. But still the app says not networking. I also Made a new se tracker account etc.
    With the setup on SeTracker ; apn settings i don’t succeed. Is that the problem Maybe? IT says send : getcxm# to wTch, but on that command my watch does not respond with a retun sns with code.
    Please help?

    • Alex says:

      Hmm.. Everything looks fine. Did you managed to get the E symbol on the watch? Also what model are you currently using, cause I’m unfamiliar with the getcxm# command. I might need to look into it.

      • Cindy says:

        Hi Alex! Thanks for support! I have exact the same watch as your daughter! And the watch shows network, not an E from edge. Looks like every works fine, but no app connection to set the SOS Numbers is possible.

        If you check on the app setracker , there is this APN settings; there they talk about this getcxm

        Thanks! Best wishes, cindy

          What happens when you manually set these apn settings via SMS :-
          pw,123456,apn,internet,KPN,gprs,# or

          see if it returns anything.

  3. Marie says:

    I am also trying to set up the APN settings but I don’t really know what to send in the message to receive the code? It says getcxm# but I don’t know what to do? Help please! 😀

    Hi alex, such a great and very helpful explanation. I just wanna ask, if i used a prepaid, do i have to top up for him?

  5. sian port says:

    HI, my watch is all working fine apart from the GPS location, it is only showing the LBS location. when sending the message to the phone it comes back GPS : NO (0 ) please can you tell me how to activate the GPS? Thank you!

    • Alex says:

      Did you try checking the location outside the building? Normally it will take about 1-2 minutes to lock to the GPS. If you waited more than 5 minutes, and still can’t get a lock on the GPS. Might be due to the watch GPS is faulty, and you need to get it replaced.

      Does your watch has the E symbol? If not try manually setting this APN via SMS

      pw,123456,apn,,,,50503# or

      Next you need to set up the Ip Address :-

      pw,123456,ip,,8001# or
