My daughter has a Apple watch with cellular with AT&T in the states and is moving back to Canada soon. Unfortunately she will need to sign on with Telus or Bell to use her Apple watch as she and her friends currently do while riding their horses without their cell phones strapped to them. It is very convenient plus gives them a greater level of safety should something go wrong. I do not understand why Rogers/Fido has not brought this technology to market while the other guys have.
Cellular business is competitive and I guess the customers are disposable. A real shame. The Apple watch with cellular was launched almost a year ago so it should be about time to have adapted. AT&T can do it in the US; Rogers and Fido were the same network at one time.
Real sorry to learn that there's a chance your daughter won't be joining us for her wireless connection
I assure you that we always aim to offer our customers and potential customers the best services possible and this is still something that we're looking into at as we build system functionality to support the technology.
Your feedback is truly appreciated and i'll make sure to forward it to the right people!
As soon as we have more news, we'll make sure to update our Community.
Hey there @KingKhan1121
Welcome to the community
I've moved your post to this thread as it's related to the same topic. We still do not hold the Apple Watch, and we'll be sure to announce it as soon as we do.
In the meantime, you can check the most recent compatibility on apple.com/watch
Hope this clarifies.
Any estimates as to how long we would have to wait to have our Celular Apple Watch 3's connected to our data plans without using our phones via blue tooth? Are we talking a few months or a few years. If the estimate is longer than a few months i will be changing carriers.
I'm not looking for this answer:
I moved your post to this thread as it deals with the same topic.
I can confirm that Fido will not carry Apple Watch at launch. This will be something we look at as we build system functionality to support this technology. You can definitely still buy Apple Watch Series 3, both the cellular and non-cellular version and bring it to Fido. You’ll be able to pair with a compatible iPhone using Bluetooth or Wi-Fi, but not our LTE network. You can check the most recent compatibility on Apple's website.
Hope this helps
Fido you better hurry. I have three month to month phone accounts and a fourth coming this year that I will have to move to Telus if you can't get your act together and support the AppleWatch 3.
I just bought the Apple Watch 3 with cellular. My hope was that Fido would eventually support it. I have 3 people on my account and soon to have a teenager make it 4. It is sounding like Fido is not interested in what their customers want. I guess I will be shopping for a new carrier soon.
Please tell me when Fido will be getting this issue resolved.
Not being able to use a major device as intended is disappointing on your end.
If I wanted the burden of carrying my phone to connect to for WIFI or BT , I wouldn't have bought a tiny little watch.
There are just too many options out there for cellular service these days .
Having been with Fido since you were a puppy , this might finally send me away.
I moved your post to this thread since it's about the same subject.
First off, I wanted to say that it's great to hear that you've been with us for so long and we hope that you stick with us!
We'd hate to see you go over this, however, while this is something that we're working to support in the future, we don't have any updates to share about this at this time.
Hi, any update on when the cellular version of the Apple Watch will be supported, or if it even will be? I expect some good Black Friday plans being offered by Telus and Bell. With no contract to tie me, I may just go too.
