Question on Data for the Galaxy watch 42MM

Hi

I just added the Galaxy watch onto my plan as an extra, have had some trouble as with others here getting the 4g LTE set up on the watch. 
I've finally got it connected but had a question 

Now that its connected, if I turn off bluetooth I can still brows the web or use things that rely on mobile network, however I wanted to check, If the watch is connected through the bluetooth on the phone, will it burn data from my phone, or use the data on the watches plan?

Tried looking for info elsewhere but cant really find anything.

The watch comes with unlimited data and my phone doesn't. Wasnt sure and it might be a stupid question but I dont mind being stupid if it means I get an answer haha!

Thanks in advance.

The watch only uses its own data if you set data to always on! If you set it as auto your watch will only use its own data when it is NOT connected via bluetooth. 

Dont make this mistake

@Rorysayshi  The watch should be using its own connection for data,  Bluetooth is used just to push notifications from the phone to the watch or the watch to control parts of the phone.
