Will Sprint get the Galaxy Watch?

I want to buy the new Galaxy Watch. This will be my 1st smartwatch. I am currently trying to weigh the advantages of the LTE version vs. the bluetooth version. However, it won't really make a difference if Sprint doesn't offer the LTE plan/watch. Just wondering if anyone knows whether or not Sprint will offer the LTE version of the Galaxy Watch. Thanks to anyone who can help.

Re: Will Sprint get the Galaxy Watch?

its likely. they brought in the Apple watch series 3 so there is a strong possibility they might bring this one in as well..or if anything allow one to be brought to Sprint and added onto a line of its own.

Re: Will Sprint get the Galaxy Watch?

Hi there,

Any idea when it will be available? When I spoke to an employee at my local Sprint store, he seemed to think it could be released at the same time as the Note 9, which has not been the case. Also when I called Sprint sales today they had not idea what the Galaxy Watch even was.

Re: Will Sprint get the Galaxy Watch?

has it already been released from Samsung?

Yes. It was released on August 24th (at least the BT edition, although I think you can purchase the T-Mobile LTE one in store as well and certainly online), and you can even pick up the BT one in most stores now and on Amazon.

the BT one isnt the problem..that one doesnt need its own line..the LTE one would however.

Re: Will Sprint get the Galaxy Watch?

Right. It also has 2x the RAM and still retains wifi and BT, so really the best option. Unfortunately, it doens't seem like Sprint knows if they are getting it, which is why I wanted to know whether an employee here might have more info.

It's looking like it will be released from Sprint sometime in November, folks.

After talking with a sells rep for nearly 2 hours yesterday heres the scoop they said currently they dont offer this watch but you can get it from any other company or from ebay in the lte version and they will gladly allow you to add it to your plan but its in the works to get the next version of it for us consumers
