Frequently asked questions

What is COSMO?
COSMO Technologies is a Denver-based, venture-backed family tech company on a mission to bring families closer together. We're passionate about building better solutions that keep kids safe and families connected. COSMO was founded in 2020; since then we've become a leading company designing and manufacturing electronic devices and software solutions specifically for kids and families, like our award winning COSMO JrTrack kids smart watch. We’re dedicated to building a better future and giving families connection, safety, and peace of mind.

What is #BetterTech?

Today, there’s a growing crisis for families and kids when it comes to technology. From concerns over mental health, childhood developmental, explicit content, cyberbullying, and more, kids are being exposed to addictive and manipulative devices and platforms at earlier and earlier ages. Parents and caregivers often simply need ways to stay connected with kids, but now “connection” comes with so much more.

The problem is that families simply haven't had the right step-by-step solutions to help kids grow and thrive in our digital world. That's why we're building an entirely new kind of technology from the ground up, designed specifically for the unique needs of kids and parents. That’s #BetterTech: a simpler, smarter, more thoughtful kind of technology that helps keep kids safe and families connected.

Memberships & Service

When do I purchase a COSMO Membership?

COSMO Membership plans are purchased once you receive your JrTrack watch. You'll need JrTrack in-hand to activate a plan, which connects your watch's SIM card with cellular service. Simply head to our Activate page, check out our full setup video guide, and follow the steps to get your watch activated with service! After you've purchased a Membership, you can download the COSMO:Mission Control parent app to pair with JrTrack 2. 

Why do I need a COSMO Membership to use my JrTrack watch?

You'll need to activate a COSMO Membership plan to activate your JrTrack's pre-installed SIM card and enable cellular service so you are connected with your child anytime, anywhere. The full set of COSMO JrTrack features (e.g. calling and GPS tracking) require this cellular service. COSMO offers three different types of Membership plans for flexibility and affordability for any family budget (see details below).

How much does a Membership cost? 

We have COSMO Membership plans to fit any family! All plans include unlimited talk, text, and data, plus FREE device insurance so you're always covered. COSMO offers three different standard types of plans for flexibility and savings:

You are not able to add the watch to an existing phone plan with any provider (T-Mobile, AT&T, Verizon, etc.); each COSMO JrTrack requires its own unique Membership plan directly through COSMO.

You can purchase a COSMO plan and use the COSMO Mission Control app regardless of what phone (iPhone, Android, etc.) or service (AT&T, Verizon, T-Mobile, etc.) you have as a parent/guardian.

Do you have a money back guarantee?

Yes! We're confident you'll love your COSMO experience. If for any reason you aren't fully satisfied, you can return your JrTrack 2 within 15 days of purchasing your COSMO Membership plan for a full refund.
