Does the watch work like a cellular phone?

Yes, with the Wizard Watch you are always connected to your child. You can use our Two-Way Voice Calling feature to call your child for a simple check in, or they can call you to let you know they are running late. SMS text and Voice Messaging is included with our service plan, and our cellular service provides reliable coverage just like your smartphone. While the Wizard Watch does have the ability to both send and receive text messages, your child only can only respond to text messages using emoji symbols.
