Durcal, a locator watch with GPS for children and adults

Telecommunications and the possibilities that are offered to us in order to locate adults and children is now much more affordable and accessible. The last option that has come to the analysis table is from a new firm called Durcal and we are going to analyze it to see if it really offers innovative capabilities in this sector.

We analyze what its characteristics and functionalities are in order to know where your little ones are at all times and, of course, also your elders.

Materials and design

A simple and effective watch. It has a small panel but it is visible enough, in it we have basic information such as the battery, the steps taken, the date and the mobile coverage. Little customization in this aspect.

The bracelet is very light, integrated in a silicone body, The two charging pins and the blood oxygen and pulse sensor remain in its lower part. These two are the only sensors that the device has at the level of capabilities, in addition to the rest of the technical characteristics that we will talk about below.

Features and functionalities

At the design and manufacturing level, the watch seeks simplicity, minimalism and resistance, without any pretense. The screen is not touch, to navigate through the options we will press the central button, with a red heart as an indicator. Through it we can see the heart rate, blood oxygen, messages and finally turn off the clock.

The watch has a microphone, a speaker and mobile coverage, as we have said, it has your own nanoSIM card included. To put it we must remove two small screws with a screwdriver included. For its part, it also has a smart fall warning, the watch will detect it automatically and send an alert to the Durcal application.

Now it's time to talk about the application. It is the first thing that we must download, completely Free for both Android and iOS and it allows us to locate the clock, manage some parameters, synchronize it and, of course, receive the aforementioned alerts.

The marketing process includesseveral phases that are reflected below: synchronization it's simple:

  1. We download the application and create an account with our phone
  2. We turn on the watch after inserting the nanoSIM
  3. We scan the barcode with the IMEI
  4. The watch and the app will sync automatically

The truth is that the synchronization system is extremely simple and that is appreciated. However, we must not forget that for this we will need to introduce a card that is included, and of course contract the Movistar Prosegur Alarmas plan:

  • Monthly payment with a twelve-month stay of €19/month
  • Annual payment of €190

We must take into account that if we cancel the service before the year, we will have to pay the remaining monthly payments up to twelve months. Yes indeed, all these plans include the clock completely free of charge.

Editor's opinion

In short, this subscription payment system will allow us to have our children, adults and dependents “controlled”. By pressing for 3 seconds on the only button it has, We have been able to verify how in a few seconds the Movistar Prosegur Alarmas specialists get in touch to ensure the status of the user and intervene if necessary, in addition to:

  • Receive alerts in the Durcal app about any type of fall
  • Analyze the vital signs of the watch user
  • Measure the steps and control the routes made by GPS
  • Notices of arrival and departure to the usual places
  • Immediate location by GPS
  • Autonomy of about 15 days

It is undoubtedly an alternative to be able to gain peace of mind, at a cost, of course, but it gives exactly what it promises in terms of performance and capabilities, without any pretension beyond what is provided in the catalog. You can buy it directly through its website or by calling 900 900 916 and contract the plan that satisfies you the most, you will receive it within 48 hours of contracting.
