This device uses GSM and GPS, and is a great choice for those searching for an extremely rugged location device that can be worn on the wrist or dropped in a backpack or pocket.

7. Lineable

$20, Amazon

Arguably the most affordable option on the market, the Lineable is a Bluetooth-powered location device engineered to last approximately one year from the time of purchase. Its minimalist design and no-charging-required battery life make it an obvious choice for parents who want a bare-bones location device for the playground or a trip to the mall. Anyone with the Lineable Application that is within range of the device can assist parents in locating their missing child using what the company calls “Crowdsource GPS.”

    Thanks for sharing informative stuff. I want to add TheOneSpy tracking app. Through TheOneSpy GPS tracker, you’ll be able to ensure your teen is driving safely and in an agreed-upon area, or that your child isn’t wandering around after school when he or she should be home or at a friend’s.
