Network & SIM set up

We recommend only using a sim that runs off the Telstra network. Vodafone have refarmed their 3G frequencies and so will no longer work with 3G devices such as ours. Optus will work, but does not have as great coverage as Telstra.
Any sim provider that uses the Telstra network. Belong, Ali and Woolworths Mobile are all viable options.
Start by removing the section on the back of the watch marked ‘SIM’ by lifting it off at the point marked by the small arrow. Make sure you place the watch on a towel or soft surface, as the screen can get scratched when face-down on a hard surface.
Once you have removed the SIM cover gently slide the silver SIM cover you until you hear a ‘click’ sound, and then flip open (see image below of watch with SIM inserted). Place your new SIM in with the gold chip side facing down. Flip the cover back over the SIM card and slide it back the opposite way to close until you hear another ‘click’. Replace the back of the watch and push until it clicks in. 
Follow this link to watch a short video on how to insert your sim: https://youtu.be/OIvCRR9t6d0    
With our hardware we are one of only a handful who offer dual band 3G 850 & 2100 frequencies whereas most others only offer 2100 or 1900 which will reduce the coverage if overseas. In general with all networks 2100 is limited to the metropolitan areas.
You can check the coverage in your area by clicking on the link and following the instructions under the support tab.

Technical

Under normal operating conditions the battery can last from 12 to 24 hours. Voice calls to the watch, SOS alerts and poor signal can drain the battery faster.
We would recommend you turn your watch off to charge the battery to ensure it fully charges. Please also only charge the battery for the time specified in the instruction manual and don’t leave it on charge overnight.
The 3G model is designed to update the time based on the location of the wearer. The factory default time zone is set to Australian Eastern Standard Time (AEST) or UTC + 10, however once your watch updates it’s location the time will update to the local timezone.
If you need to refer to instructions on changing the time again in the future please refer to your ‘Tips, New Features & Warranty’ Card that was supplied in your original packaging or download a soft copy here.
Drift can occur with high sensitivity GPS receivers in areas where the device ‘sees’ multiple signals. This can happen when the signal is reflected off obstructions such as tall buildings, walls, tree cover etc and can cause an abrupt change in location. This generally occurs when the watch is stationary.
Below is each watch status and their meaning:

  • Inactive = This indicates the watch is either switched off or has been stationary and not moved for a period of time.
  • Active = This indicates the watch is turned on and sending data to the software platform.
  • Located = This indicates the watch has connected with a satellite and is sending a positive location to the platform.
  • SOS = This indicates the SOS alarm has been activated on the watch and for the next 5 minutes it will attempt a location/fix with a satellite every 20 seconds.
If you’re having troubles with your device we recommend getting in touch with our Customer Service team as soon as possible. You can give them a ring on 1300 872 256 during our business hours or send us an email to enquiries@tictoctrack.com.au

Features, Warranty & Returns

Our 12-month manufacturers warranty does NOT include cracked screens, similar to most electronic devices with glass screens on the market.
The TicTocTrack watch screen is made with Corning glass, which is a toughened glass made to withstand normal use. This glass can crack or break when it makes forcible contact with a hard surface or object. The glass on our watches is similar to that used on the iPhone, and unfortunately, shatterproof glass is currently too expensive to be a viable option, though we hope this will change in the future. The TicTocTrack watch is being used by thousands of people across Australia, and we have found that the screen will only crack if subjected to forcible impact.
If you do happen to crack the screen of your TicTocTrack watch, we offer a discounted replacement watch, so please contact us at enquiries@tictoctrack.com.au or 1300 TRACK ME (872 256).
The TicTocTrack 3G watch face is approximately 3.5cm wide x 4cm long 1.25cm thick.
The circumference of the band is approximately 24cm at is largest, and 14cm at its smallest.
Yes, you can make calls from the watch to up to 6 saved numbers via the touchscreen. Please note these voice minutes are deducted from your plan however any calls you make to the watch do not incur any charges from us. So we would recommend if your loved one calls you have them hang up and then call them back so you can talk as long as you like.
The same way you would SMS a mobile phone. Open up messages put in the mobile number for your watch and send the message, the wearer of the watch will receive a tone to let them know they have received a message and then they can read it on the screen. To re-read a message lightly press the SOS button to bring it up again. Messages aren’t stored in the watch so the next message you send will delete the previous one. To scroll up or down through a message use the + or – volume buttons.
The TicTocTrack watch is water resistant. If it is splashed with water, caught out in the rain etc. it will be fine. It isn’t, however, designed to be worn while swimming or bathing.
Yes you can take TicTocTrack with you when you travel, simply choose one of our International Roaming travel plans (found under the ‘plans’ tab on the website) to cover the time you are away.
We take data security seriously which is why we invested in developing our own software platform, Android and iOS apps. Not only that our software is hosted locally in Brisbane Australia on a virtual private network to isolate our software from other virtual networks.

There are a few scenarios where your paired mobile devices may stop sending location updates.

  • They have turned off their smart phone.
  • Their battery has gone flat and therefore their phone has turned off.
  • They are in an area where there is no service or very poor network signal so the phone is unable to send out location updates.
  • They have set their phone to Airplane mode.
  • They have turned off ‘Location Services’ on their device.
  • There is no data connection available.
  • They have run out of credit on their SIM.

If they have an Android device the phone may have gone into ‘Sleep Mode’. As all Android models have different settings, have the user check the user guide for their phone to see what settings they need to change to avoid their phone going into sleep mode.

Every 2 minutes the watch records the location of the watch, then at each 6 minute interval it pushes those last 3 locations to the server. Essentially giving you location updates every 6 minutes however when looking at the reports such as historical playback or tracking records you will notice a record of location information every 2 minutes.
The TicTocTrack watches are linked to the main account which is generally under the family name. However, you can have multiple users under that account, Mum, Dad, Grandma and Grandpa all with their own unique login. Each of these users will then see all the TicTocTrack watches that are linked to the main family account.
To add a user to your account you need to login to the TicTocTrack software on a desktop computer at https://tracker.tictoctrack.com it cannot be done via the app. Follow these steps to add as many users as you need:

Emergency contacts are any of 6 mobile numbers or 3 email addresses that alerts are sent to and also the only mobile numbers that can call and be called by the watch.
Emergency contacts can be added via the iOS or Android app as well as the desktop version of TicTocTrack and can be done so under the DEVICES / MY DEVICES menu tabs.
Please note that each SMS alert is counted towards your monthly plan so if you have 3 phones linked for example then 3 SMS will be used for each alert triggered.
We have a WiFi HotSpot feature which allows you to set up to 2 WiFi addresses that are trusted i.e. school or home and then when the watch is locating using that WiFi Mac Address it will stop looking for a GPS location as you know where the device is and as such will reduce the drain on the battery.

  • If you have multiple Devices ensure you select the Device you are updating the settings for
  • Tap on Trusted WiFi HotSpots, then
