Will Rogers offer standalone apple watch plan soon? Or already there? if so, could anyone help share the steps of setup?
Just bought an apple watch from Rogers store and find I don't get a separate number. Thought its a simple feature both Telus/Bell supported. I bought the watch for kid so I can contact /track him while he's on the ski trail. A separate number required.
Thanks for joining us here in the Rogers Community and for posting your Apple Watch question. 🙂
Just to clarify, we do have non-shared Apple Watch plans available for $10 per month which include 1GB of non-shared data. You do need to pair it with an existing smartphone in order to be eligible for the plan, even if you are not sharing the data between these devices.
Here is what you will need to activate an Apple Watch plan:
1. An up-to-date iPhone connected to the Rogers network and an Apple Watch that supports GPS and cellular functionality.
2. A Rogers postpaid wireless account with a compatible Rogers plan.
3. A MyRogers account profile associated with your primary iPhone number.

I have called and spoke to two different representatives and they are not familiar with this. They said the phone would have the same phone number. How can I get this set up? I need a separate phone number for the watch.

Let us know if you have any further questions or concerns.
Just to clarify, because I've called two different Rogers agents, and have gone into the Rogers store and got a different story. I have a Rogers phone, and I have paired it with my Apple Watch to share the data. However, what I would like is to get a second Apple Watch, with a dedicated number / 1gb plan. Is that possible? Because Rogers agents I have spoken to are saying every plan needs to be connected to a separate mobile phone plan.
Greetings, @pilias !
Thanks so much for posting your question in the community! We hope you like it here. 🙂
Regretfully, you can only share your Rogers smartphone number with one Apple Watch at a time. So sorry for any disappointment this may cause.
Is there any solution available yet for this issue? I am trying to accomplish the same thing as the original poster. I have an apple watch and an iphone and I am happy to have the same number on my watch as my phone (this is what I want) but I also want to set up an apple watch for my son using the family set up option with a different phone number for his watch (and he has no phone). I just switched from Bell to Rogers and assumed this would be no issue as it can easily be done with Bell. I am now not sure what to do and if I will need to switch back to Bell. Appreciate any assistance/suggestions!
I just did the same thing. Picked up the watch from the apple store last night, only to find that Rogers does not support the family plan. I just switched to Rogers last week.
I have read that you can purchase a stand alone plan from Bell for the watch, but you need to borrow a Bell sim from a friend for 5 minutes to set up the watch. I am going to try that. I hope it works!
