I have a W9 smart watch that I bought from China and it is supposed to work on the following bands- 2G GSM: 850/900/1800/1900 MHz, and 3G WCDMA: 2100 MHz. Will this smart watch work on the Roger's Canada network? Also is there any plans that would allow me to use "either" my smart phone or my smart watch without having two separate plans?

It would be best to check out the Rogers Frequencies Thread here: http://communityforums.rogers.com/t5/forums/forumtopicpage/board-id/NetworkCoverage/thread-id/151
It should help you confirm if your out of country device will be compatible.
Answer is very straight forward.
Will it work on Rogers Network?
Is there any plans that would allow you to use "either" your smart phone or smartwatch (3G capable)?
Samsung Gear S in Canada has that capability (3G/Sim card). Yet there is no plans for it dedicated to work as a "Add-on" as of yet.
You will have two seperate plans/Lines.
1 Main Primary Line - Your SmartPhone
1 Secondary - Network Access Plan (with data only)
1 Secondary - Talk & Text line
1 Secondary - Talk, Text and & Internet Line.
(Depending on what your watch uses)
I recommend looking into what the device does and does not do.
Example: If it is android wear then it juse needs data.
If it's considered a "stand alone" device that can make calls without a phone then you may want, talk & text or talk, text and data plan.
They will be sharing the data from smartphone plan because it will be in same account.
Look into ShareEverything Plan. Good options there but I can't see W9 full manual anywhere. So I don't know it's capabilities, I only know it runs Android 4.4.
The W9 smart watch is a complete stand alone Android 4.4.2 watch. It is capable of talk, text, and data just like a smart phone. The only caveat is - it is only capable of: 2G GSM: 850/900/1800/1900MHz
3G WCDMA: 2100MHz - so I guess it will only function on the 2G band of Rogers. My question: what would be the most economical way of having talk, text, and WIFI for this watch (I do not need DATA)? Can I get a share everything plan with my wife and allow her to have a phone and myself to have a phone and include my smart watch on the days I chosse to not take my phone but use the smart watch instead?
got a watch today for 99.00 plus tax was told unlocked it aint its Rogers so had to get a sim card and go prepaid cant find emei number and to see if it has wi fi or not thanks
