Re: Samsung galaxy smart watch 4g

It can't be bought outright you need the monthly plan as you can't just add it to your current plan to use it on the 4G services. The £20 a month is to pay for its own tariff and the watch itself.

 

If you do buy it outright from another source like eBay you won't be able to use it 4G compatabilities.

 

Samsung direct are not even selling the watch. The only seller is EE.

I would not bother at the moment. I bought one on contract and it is a total waste of money. It cannot be used on its own without your phone (despite what the salesperson said in the EE shop AND I can only get around 12 to 15 hours between charges and that's at night in sleep mode. I am a Samsung fan but this is a waste of time and money in my opinion.

Youbare talking a load ofrubbish you are making claims you don't know or have experience of.

 

You can make calls without your phone

 

You can receive calls without your phone.

 

I am getting 3 to 4 days before having to recharge the battery again. 

 

You are saying 15 hours based on what?

How rude. If you cannot be civil please do NOT reply to my comments. 

 

As it is, I do know what I am 5alking about. I purchased the 4G let version on contract just before Christmas. I was assured by the EE salesperson in the shop that this watch will work abroad as a stand alone because it is attached to your EEmobile phone number. It does not work abroad, even in the EU. I have subsequently googled this and whilst on the EE website it does state that it will only function as a stand alone in the UK it does not get away from the fact that the EE salesperson got it wrong.

 

Secondly, I also know what I am talking about. My watch is lasting just 12 to 15 hours on a full charge which is useless. When you Google this problem it would appear this is something that has happened after one of the watch updates and other people have had to return their watches to Samsung to be repaired as it was a battery fault.

 

If you want a watch to make calls just in the UK then great, it might be for you but when EE are selling these things AND they have their own EE number it does not make sense that you cannot make and receive calls when you are abroad.

 

Finally, I reiterate if you cannot be civil in your replies do not make them. If you are offensive again in your replies I will report you to EE. This is not the idea of the forum.
