Kids GPS watch easily hackable

I know a number of people on here have discussed getting GPS trackers for their kids journey to school etc, one popular brand has just been recalled because it is easily hackable.
Please consider your child’s safety, and who manufactures and codes these devices when thinking about sticking a GPS on your child.
