Samsung Galaxy Watch LTE Smartwatch support

Now that Rogers has released support for Apple watches, and the Samsung LTE watch will be in Canada in late October, when will Rogers support the Samsung LTE watch?

Hello @garron2!

 

We hope you've been enjoying your stay in the Forums and congrats on your first post! 😁

 

I'm definitely a watch person myself and I have to admit, the new Samsung Galaxy smartwatches are pretty easy on the eyes!!

 

Currently, only Apple Watch Series 3 or newer (GPS + Cellular) is compatible with smartwatch plans. Please stay tuned for any future updates to come!!

Why is Roger's NOT supporting Samsung Galaxy Watch?!!! The LTE version is available for preorder. I love mine so much I ordered bluetooth model awaiting the LTE version. I NEED this watch in LTE. I've been a customer for nearly 20 years! Now I need to switch my carrier to support my watch?! Sad...

The apple watch can not be ordered without an iphone. So, Samsung users are held up by Roger's not offering the Samsung galaxy watch.

Hello @No1girltech

Switching carriers won't do anything truthfully. That watch isn't supported by any other carrier as i can see.. So what will switching carriers do really?. You will complain to that carrier too if they don't support it right now..

Also you are wrong. The watch CAN be ordered without a iPhone. You can still use the watch for calling ( I have a Apple watch series 4) and it still works if I am using myS9+. However messaging doesn't work. So u need a iPhone if u want to change settings and texting. Calling still works.

Everything can work with WiFi or Bluetooth however. Just clearing up some facts here.

Re: Samsung Galaxy Watch LTE Smartwatch support

Your facts are misconstrued.

#1. Roger's will not allow ME to order the watch without an iphone.

#2. Samsung released the LTE Galaxy watch only available with Bell and Telus.

Just clearing up the current facts.

Hello @No1girltech

#1. Rogers should not be doing this as the watch CAN be used separate. Can you explain where they are not allowing u to buy it? Since stores are online do not state this? No where does it state u need the phone in order to get the watch. If it's a store rep, call them out and ask to speak to a manager. Online it let's u order the watch but pick it up in store. So yes you can get it witjout a iPhone. Whoever says otherwise has no clue what they are saying...

#2. My aologies but can you show me on the Telus or Bell site that they have it? I don't see it.. So if Samsung says that Bell and Telus can support it, doesn't mean they both will sell the device as of now. They can support it but you need to buy it from Best Buy or Samsung. I checked Telus site here in Ontario and I don't see it.

Same with Bell. Only wearables I see is either the Apple Watches, Fossil, Fitbits. So please show me a link that Bell and Telus as of this moment are selling or pre ordering those watches on their wesite. Thank you.

Rogers unfortunately won't out it up for sale unless they see people want it. They are always having major issues with activating the Apple Watches on their networks. I don't think they will order another watch until they fix those issues ( since they both use ESIM).

It is Samsung Canada website where it states on Bell and Telus will support it.

I am looking into the texting via apple watch now and may switch to apple watch. I use WhatsApp with most family and friends anyways and apple watch supports that! I know that for sure.

They sell the LTE version and have it in stock at the Source for Bell only.

Hello @Keff15

Yes that's because Best Buy and The Source including Samsung are only selling it at the moment.

The Source is owned by Bell so that's why it's only for Bell from the source.
