ADMIN UPDATE: At this time, the Galaxy Watch does not support standalone voice and data. Sprint has not yet released the software update which enables VoLTE on the watches. We do not have an ETR as to when that will happen. We will post an update in this forum when it does. New threads on this topic will be merged with this one and locked.
Hello, I just recieved my galaxy watch lte today and set up my mobile account to the watch, I also have a separate number for my watch. The watch shows a LTE signal but I'm afraid it's not set up properly as it asks if I want to connect to bluetooth when I try to place a call with the watch. If I say no bluetooth it returns back to the previous screen. So my issue is that I can't place calls from my LTE watch or use lte features?
Hey Alberto! At this time, the Galaxy Watch will support 4G LTE as a companion device to the primary Samsung phone on the account. It will support Voice over LTE "VoLTE" in the future. Please feel free to reach out to us for updates!
Good to hear! The Galaxy Watch is for sure awesome! I've got the Gear S3 myself, but may have to upgrade once the VoLTE rolls out!

Hi Joyab121393! As of now, there are some limitations of the LTE functionality on the Galaxy Watch.
Here's some info on the current LTE capabilities from our support document.
Let me know if you have any other questions!
I can't understand why we are not told when we bought them. I was told that the first 3 months of service is free. Well now I know why! I called Sprint tech support and they could not figure it out! So they don't even know! They sent me back to the store after 1 1/2 hours of being on the phone. The store said there is not a connection yet for it to be a stand alone! Said it should work in January. Anyone else been told January?
Hi CatCat36! The Galaxy Watch requires Voice over LTE service for voice calls through the watch. .
I haven't heard any time table on when the galaxy watch will actually work as a true standalone, but it would be nice to know when it will work as a standalone since I paid all this money for a watch that I can't even use without bluetooth!! I'm not a happy camper right now.
