Any idea on when the new Lte Apple watch will be supported on the Rogers network? If it is supported what would be the price plan?

Apple certainly wouldn't like it but this made me skip buying one at all. If this takes to much longer it's possibly worth waiting for series 4 anyway.

It is much too early for any leak to be real and not completely made up. A new watch wouldn't even likely be announced until WWDC (June/July 2018) or later.

I've always bought devices outright so that's not a concern.
The cellular technology that Apple would use in the current series 3 watches would be the same in the series 4. It's just a software based sim (an e-sim) so once it's supported, it should always be.

Is there any update on when and if Rogers will support Apple Watch with LTE ?

It’s a right pain in the rump that Rogers is so far behind on this.

So I just upgraded my Apple watch to be able to receive calls/texts without my phone around and now I am looking for a new plan with a new provider. It's very unfortunate, as I am happy with the service I am getting with Rogers.

I don't understand why you think it's "beyond" you to figure out why people want to switch because of the Apple Watch issue. Have you ever tried jogging with an iPhone 7 Plus as opposed to a Watch with AirPods? We would also like to be able to receive urgent calls during our workouts from our family at the same time. Balancing both requires us to have a Watch. The ability to pick up arrhythmias like atrial fibrillation during workouts is a nice feature to have as well.
The Watch is very important to some of us and you can add me to your list of switchers if Rogers does not offer this within a month or two at most. My self and my wife will be jumping over to Telus or Bell.

Got tired of Rogers refusal to even discuss the LTE watch, so investigated switching. Found out that had I been a Telus customer the past year I would have save $10 per month with BYOD. Was Able to get a new iPhone 8 for $0 for 64GB, or $200 for 256GB, with same plan as I had on Rogers, better coverage in my area, for 5$ less per month than I was paying for my 3 year old phone. So now I am saving money and ready for a new watch. I guess I should thank Rogers for pretending the Apple Watch doesn't exist, because I was prompted to learn there are better alternatives.

Even if Rogers was not sure about potential popularity of the Watch, they should have at least placed a poll in their regular email letters to their users if they would be interested in adding the Watch or not. The fact that they did not even bother taking preorders or even a poll is rather annoying to say the least. Who are they to decide which devices the customer will be limited to? We will be voting with our wallets. Been with Rogers since '93 but will the wife and I will dump them within two months if it is not announced.

Hi @Meowmix, I was always impressed with the Watch's battery life too. Hope you are right with the possibility of Rogers getting the LTE Watch before summer. However, my personal timeline for them is shorter than that before switching. Need the Watch especially for jogging with Apple Music and no phone strapped to your arm. Being able to walk around the workplace sans the phone would be nice as well. Apple Pay, reading & dictating notes, mail, messages, etc. on the run all without the phone are all great to have at the workplace as well where we can just leave the phone in the desk drawer all day.

Come on Rogers! We need Apple Watch 3 LTE support! I will switch to Telus if it doesn't change.
