She does not link it or bluetooth it to a phone but loves the different functions She was having trouble with how little the screen was and her fingers but loves the idea of having a smart watch! It's screen is pretty responsive.. just for giggles I connected it to my iPhone 7 pretty easily. She loves the sturdy red band. She's been wearing it everyday and charging it at night. A great way to let kids know the responsibility of owning one and this is a great price too. I could not get the app to download so it can not communicate well with a phone.
