Someone will make a trustworthy child's smartwatch. The ones I have seen look like the Dick Tracy wrist phone with facetime. The ability to lockout who you child can receive calls from and make calls to is a big plus. And it is strapped to their wrist making it harder to lose.

The real problem is that these smart watches had a silent call mode which can be used to spy on said child, or home, or family... illegal in Germany. Not just illegal to sell, but illegal to possess!

And yet a smart phone with an app has the exact same functionality.

And if that is ever found out in school you are going to have a lot of fun in a court room. ^^ Not so much fun later, when you receive a 5 digit fine and are required to destroy your smart-phone like, with verification and certificate.

If you use that at work by the way, you face concrete walls for up to 10 years and obviously instant firing. In both cases that shit is just not worth it. (reason for 10+ years? Industrial espionage law triggers here) And that means civil lawsuits will ruin you in the aftermath as well.

Basically, don't use spy devices (or apps) in Germany ^^

Those are awkward to strap to a child's wrist.

Nullity's Law
There's an easy and fool-proof way to tell if anything related conservative/right-wing/Republican politics is true or not. If anyone calls it "fake news", you can be sure it's the solid truth.
