Is this watch standalone yet? I have had it for almost 2 years and still not working? So what's the issue? Are you telling me the only way it work is to have Blue Tooth working? Please free to explain to me....
Hello JONESLEGACY4. It has taken a while for the watch to work as a stand alone device. Unfortunately it is still not available. For the time being yes, Bluetooth Voice Capabilities are available when watch is within proximity of the primary Samsung phone.
Thanks for the update. I would have thought by now it would have been fixed or updated? Just disappointed that I paid $399 for an LTE watch that I was under the impression it was a stand alone......
I am wondering the Sam thing they have us pay for the data plan for the galaxy watch lte but only give us 911 ability if not connected to the phone that's not a standalone they give it to the active 2 what happen
which watch is it that you have? the active? active 2?
Galaxy Watch 46 MM LTE... 2 questions how do i get update and if i have data plan can i make phone calls from watch with phone turned off?
the post by Carlos has a link to the instructions on how to get the update to the watch...
it has its own line technically but im still not fully sure if the phone itself must be left on or if it really matters...that will be a question for any of the other posters in here or one of the agents.
actually i just found this..
A couple of things that need to be cleared up:
The phone HAS to be on! The phone acts as a switchboard of sorts. A call comes in and the phone routes to the watch. The same thing with the Apple Watch, the phone has to be on.
The watch does use VoLTE. Sprint has VoLTE everywhere except Puerto Rico, Wyoming, and Montana. The LTE in VoLTE is LTE and you have to have good LTE coverage in order for it to work. Poor/No LTE, then no talking over the watch.
if you did the update that kicked out on the 5th then yes you would have VoLTE and it could be used as stand alone as long as your phone is left on wherever you leave it.
actually im going to mark this thread to be moved into the correct area that is for Samsung devices etc and not in here where its mainly about the site itself...
