Re: LTE Apple watch support and plan

I just preordered 2 Apple Watch 3’s with Cellular, I’ll give Rogers till the iPhone X preorder date of Oct 27 to get on board with support for the Watch, if nothing changes then I will begin switching my 7 lines to Bell or Telus.

Re: LTE Apple watch support and plan

If rogers cant support the watch in a timely fashion, or give us some kind of idea on when they will, then I personally will be looking into switching carriers too.

You guys owe your die hard customers a timeline in when we can expect support for the cellular watch.

Re: LTE Apple watch support and plan

Hello @Rob20

I agree with you but they DON'T own a time or when they will release it. They made a steamer saying at this moment they won't be releasing it. At this time that's the only thing they have said. Most likely they will release it when they see the demand or when time passes but again that's how they are.

Telus hasn't even given a date really when they will release the watch either. Just put a page up for pre registration page to get notified when the pre orders open but won't be release at launch as per Telus.

I wish rogers would at the very least put up a page for pre-order to show us they'll be working towards bringing us the service.

I remember when rogers was the first to bring us the 3G iPhone many moons ago.

Have they stopped bringing us the most current phones, devices, and features?

Hello @Rob20

We can't compare the first iPhone to this as Rogers was the only one at the time with GSM and 3G Networks. That's why they got it first.

In the end I agree they should out up a page but didn't and now this is happening.

Rogers is actually bringing everything that is new to us. Just because they aren't bringing the watch right at launch doesn't mean they won't. Same with Telus. In the end they will release it but in time. We shall see.

Re: LTE Apple watch support and plan

Agreed. I think the key thing everyone is asking for is a message from Rogers about their commitment to support the watch.

Timing is secondary.

Re: LTE Apple watch support and plan

If anybody from Rogers is reading this forum topic, please consider updating your website with a little more information regarding your plans for supporting the Apple Watch Series 3 + Cellular.  As has been shown in this forum, there is a great deal of interest in support for this device, and as much as it is a hassle to change providers, if support for the Apple Watch does not come soon, or at least an announcement made soon laying out their intentions, it will be time to switch providers.  As others have stated, I have been waiting for a standalone watch, where I did not need to always carry my phone with me, and this is it.  So, hopefully Rogers will see the importance of this device to their subscriber base, and begin to provide us with options other than to defect to other providers.

No Apple Watch support? Guess I'm switching to Bell

I am also a long time Rogers' subscriber and I have a joint plan with girlfriend. I am also a kiteboader and having the ability to call coast guard in an emergency with the Apple Watch is very useful indeed. I will wait a bit for Rogers to sort this out and I will definitely switch if they can not make up their minds by the end of the year.

Re: LTE Apple watch support and plan

I was shocked and extremely disappointed to discover that one of Canada's major cellular providers was not supporting the first Apple Watch "phone". What were they thinking to opt out of the latest technology and end up losing thousands of tech savvy customers to Bell and Telus. The new Apple Watch will be to smart watches what the iPhone is to smart phones. Apple customers are devout to the brand and will not wait long for Rogers to come on board. Rogers needs to take note and quickly make a clear announcement to stop the mass exodus. I for one have been with Rogers when they were not even called Rogers and will have a hard time to switch, however, if Rogers fails to support the Apple Watch 3 LTE in a timely fashion I'm afraid many of us will have no choice. Rogers CANNOT take the chance and fall behind its competitors. It must commit to the latest technologies without any further delay or ambiguity.
