They can also reply with customizable preset messages, voice messages, emoticons, or audio emoticons to parent-approved contacts and in Garmin Jr. family group messages. During school days, parents can turn on School Mode or Do Not Disturb from the Garmin Jr. app. To reduce distractions to help children stay focused while in class.
