Android Central Question

I want to get a basic smart watch (possibly VTech) for my son who is going into middle school next year. I need basic contact without giving him his own phone. I have a Samsung Galaxy S8 phone. Xfinity is our provider. As of now, they do not provide any services or devices that would allow me to do this. I have very little knowledge of technology. Please help!

Welcome to Android Central! I have a friend who gave an LG GizmoGadget to his 4th grader, which allows simple 2-way calling/texting and location tracking, and he really likes how it works. But I think it's only on Verizon. Xfinity Mobile uses Verizon's network, but that doesn't mean they'll allow a Verizon device to be activated on their network. Try asking your Xfinity agent if it'd be possible to use the GizmoGadget on their network.
