Default cool wrest watch walkie talkie

so I was surfing amazon and found this. https://www.amazon.com/Multi-channel..._cd_al_qh_dp_t I know its a long way from what I am trying to do and what I have now. which is a beofeng uv5r. I use the uv5r to scan my work so I can hear my calls. They do not have enough radios to go around. my work is using 154.6000 I pick them up on several channel's near this one. anyway I was wondering if these little cool watches would pick up that frequency

Nope this is UHF only, not VHF

Apparently this is not just an FRS, but a GMRS with Repeater
based on the manual

And depending on your Country settings has the other Channels
China, Taiwan, Europe, Korea, Australia,

I am very surprised at the complexity in this seemingly simple little "radio." What I find most disturbing however is that there's no mention at all of a requirement for a GMRS license for GMRS operations, i.e., use of local repeaters.

I looked at the web page.. If you scroll on down, you'll find that they're pretty much junk, according to the Q&A and the reviews. License? It probably doesn't matter. They won't last long enough to be of much benefit.
