Anchor watch PRO is a position logger, SMS alarm and sound alarm and it monitors the device's current location and informs you if the location of the device changes too far away from the set anchor. In that case, it will sound an alarm and optionally send an SMS.

Please try free version of the app before buying this one to test if all functions are supported by your phone.

Please know that the performance and accuracy of the Anchor watch application depends on the hardware and software of the used device. If you have bad reception, please move the device to a location that has better satellite reception!

Because this application uses GPS to monitor movement, it will consume battery a bit faster than normally. We suggest you charge your device while using the app, although it's not necessary and the impact on battery life strongly depends on the device used! There is also an advanced option to set GPS update intervals which might greatly improve battery life.

Some device types have problems with some parts of the application, such as not providing proper GPS provider or not allowing the app to send SMS. Since those are per-device issues, we cannot guarantee to support each one.

Please keep in mind that the application is provided "AS-IS". It should not be relied on to and we shall not be responsible for any problem/expense/life threatening situation it could cause.
