Think I'm moving after XMas also. I do not think Rogers even reads this stuff; they have not even tried to explain their position!

Hello @claven2

Best Buy reps have no clue on what they are saying. Believe me i worked for Bestbuy and know the reps which give false information to get a sale.

It seems like there is a big issue going around on why Rogers won't support it and they won't give a answer to why and what's going on

Hello @HayDude

The Rogers staff on here send out the posts to the higher ups. Unfortunately it's up to the higher ups that will change something or add a product in their line up.

Believe me i have family member that want this watch but are willing to switch if Rogers doesn't activate it or sell it by the new year.

Re: Samsung Galaxy Watch LTE Smartwatch support

I agree with the last 2 posts.  I think there is a reason why it's not enabled when the apple offering is, I just don't know what it is.  From a cellular technology perspective, they both use the same e-Sim system and Rogers DOES support virtually all other Samsung products.  

 

I figure either they are having a bad experience with LTE functionality on the AWS4 and don't want to dig themselves in deeper, or there is a business reason to push only one product - something like a marketing agreement with Apple or whatever.

 

Either way, they should come clean about it - this is the year LTE wearables are taking off and are a :must have: Christmas purchase for the tech savvy Canadian.  In my opinion, they are about to lose a bunch of wearable-curious android users by only supporting the apple product without explaining that decisions at all.

Re: Samsung Galaxy Watch LTE Smartwatch support

Well I have my LTE watch now (Galaxy Watch) and I do like it more then I thought I would.  I also like my Rogers services and am hoping (fingers crossed) that they support the watch's LTE functionality soon.  VERY willing to pay the $10/mo if they offer the service.  

 

Looking forward to leaving the phone at home when the watch get Rogers LTE support via eSim...

Ya that's great but if you are stuck with Rogers that won't help.

 

I just moved one of my numbers to Bell so I could get the watch I wanted.

Re: Samsung Galaxy Watch LTE Smartwatch support

Hello @Gnine,

 

Welcome to the Rogers Community Forums! 😃

 

As an Android user and a huge fan of wearables, I am also eagerly awaiting any sort of news regarding Rogers supporting the Galaxy Watch LTE. I am still using a Galaxy S2 Classic as a result since we have not been provided with an update, at this time.

 

Once we do have some actual news we will ensure the Community is updated as well as the Rogers.com website.

 

I hope we hear something soon! 🤞
