Experience with kids gps/texting watch?

anyone have any advice?  Want to provide 5th grader some more freedom but not a phone yet.  Any recommendations?

I don't really know much about the smartwatches, but I thought that they had to be tied to a smartphone (?)

What about a dumbphone?  Then can text/call friends and home but not do social media etc.
