The Garmin Bounce is an unusual kids' sports watch – not only does it encourage your kids to stay active by counting their steps and monitoring how long they spend being active every day, it also has mobile data connectivity, which lets you stay in touch when they're out and about.

With the Garmin Jr app on your phone, you can see your child's location in real time and get alerts when they leave a designated area, and send and receive text and voice messages. They can also check in when they reach a certain location, or send a message asking for help via Garmin LiveTrack.

The Bounce launched in November 2022, but it can be tricky to find. If you want to pick up the Garmin Bounce, the only place with stock currently available in the US is Garmin itself. The good news is that there's $10 off right now, so you're getting a good deal even without going to a third-party retailer.
