We are delighted to have introduced the very first PAYG tracking watch into the UK and believe both the private and commercial sector will see this as a valuable tool to track venerable people or those with higher levels of risk.
Harpenden, Herts (PRWeb UK) October 23, 2009
FollowUs, the UK's leading mobile phone tracking service, has launched its low-cost GPS Watch. The GPS Watch will make tracking people much more accurate, cost-effective and user friendly.
The GPS Watch is a lithium battery powered GPS tracking watch that can be worn and used like a normal watch with the added benefit of tracking the person wearing it precisely. The GPS Watch is ideal for private or business use and it is offered uniquely without any additional monthly payments. This means there is only the one off payment for the GPS Watch and no other charges made by FollowUs.
The GPS Watch is special because it reports its location to your mobile phone, so people can be tracked whilst on the move. The GPS Watch will work worldwide subject to having gps and mobile phone reception. The customer needs to insert a pay-as-you-go sim card into the watch with credit and it is then ready to go.
Suggested applications include:
- Tracking children
- Tracking elderly parents or tracking family members (particularly useful for memory loss or dementia patients)
- Tracking employees in high risk environments and countries.
Martin Pinnell-Brown, Commercial Director of FollowUs, explains, "We are delighted to have introduced the very first PAYG tracking watch into the UK and believe both the private and commercial sector will see this as a valuable tool to track venerable people or those with higher levels of risk."
The GPS Watch is available from FollowUs' online store, gpswholesale.co.uk, the unit costs £199 (+VAT). Features of the service include:
- Tracking accurate to 5 meters
- No subscription or hidden fees - just one off purchase of the GPS Watch
- A search costs the price of 2 text messages on the sim card you place in the GPS Watch

How it works. 3 Simple Steps!
(1) You call the sim card that you have place in your GPS Watch from your mobile, when you want to know its location.
(2) The GPS watch determines its location and then sends a text message back to your mobile phone with a map link.
(3) Click on the map link that is displayed on your mobile phone and your mobile will download a map showing the device's precise location.
