esim smart watches - which carrier?

Post by camboguy6 »

Hi, I am looking to get a smartwatch, the esim (non psychical sim) version. Has anyone connected a smartwatch with esim? I want the watch to have the same phone number as my phone.

2 cell phones cannot have the same phone number. I doubt a cell phone and a eSIM smart watch can have the same number.

However, smart watches can answer and make phone calls when connected to a smart phone. I do it with my Apple Watch. Works through work gloves great when I can’t physically pick up my iPhone.

That being said, the Apple Watch does offer a version with an eSIM. Latest version also monitors for atrial fibrillation and oxygen saturation.

Good luck!

In my home country it's possible to have an esim and phone with the same number, but from your experience it doesn't seem possible here.

Thanks
