Once your child presses on the blue circle, you will get a notification on your phone. For instance, it will show “Finn has checked in. Tap here to see the current location”. You will not only get the notification of check-in but also all the activities of the Gabb watch.

You can add some specific contacts to your child’s Gabb watch. It also has the option of emergency contacts.
To add contacts, go to the contact app from the home screen and tap the circle with a plus inside. Then enter the person’s name and number, and fill in other sections.
Fortunately, you will get an option for emergency contacts too. You can list five contacts here. For that, go to the My Gabb app, select About Phone, Emergency Info, and add contacts.
Step 10: Monitor The App
So now we are done with resetting the Gabb watch. But it is also important to know what you can do with the app.
When you open the Gabb app, you can see your son’s or daughter’s name, phone number, watch percentage, and last seen. Below the basic activity, you will get the options of call, locate, play sound, message, active tracking, and go.
By tapping on location, you can find your child’s location. He won’t receive any notification if you click on the silent mode. The active tracking also does the job of finding the location, and Gab Go will count your child’s steps.
