I got a galaxy watch 5 lte version to mu son to be able to reach out for him when he is outside 

The watch is nice and has its own gps and google maps app 

I assumed having such features will enable him to share his location with Google maps or we can check on him through family link but I couldn't do this is there any solution that can help

Thank you for reaching out. I can certainly understand the importance of having others be able to locate you and I would be happy to look into this further for you. In order to allow others to track your location, they would need to have a Galaxy device.

 

SmartThings Find includes extra options to make it easier to find your devices. For instance, you can add or remove devices that SmartThings will be able to locate, and also share location information with other Galaxy users.

You have the Watch5 with LTE, yes? And you purchase a separate data plan for the watch with your carrier?

Im looking for an answer too. I would like my family to be able to track my location when I go for long runs or hikes. I don't carry my phone, only my watch. In the past I have been able to share my location w my family, but so far I have not been able to figure out how using my new Galaxy Watch 5 Pro. . . I even purchased Life 360 in hopes that might be useful, but so far its not. Surly there is a way to share my location using just my watch. This isn't a new concept. . . Thank you!

Did you ever get this solved.  It's a sadly obvious, yet unaddressed feature.
