apple watch series 4

Apple just announced Apple watch series 4 yesterday!

 

For the GPS+Cellular, they support Rogers in this generation, since Rogers and Fido are the same company, does Fido support series 4 too?

Accepted Solution

Hey @chrisliu0424

 

Welcome to the Community Smiley

 

We don't support Apple Watch.

 

We anticipate a lot of excitement around the new iPhone models and that is what we're focusing on. As of now, we don't have any updates on whether or not we would carry/support Apple Watch in the future. I'd suggest you keep an eye on fido.ca for updates on our products and services.

 

That said, you can buy the Apple Watch and pair it with a compatible iPhone using Bluetooth or Wi-Fi, but not our LTE network. 

 

Hope this clarifies!

Somehow I posted on an older thread; as stated I have 8 devices with fido.  I will be purchasing apple watch 4 with cellular FROM APPLE and if there are no short term plans for support by Fido I will be cancelling all services with Fido.  Hate to go to Bell or Rogers but so be it.

Hey @bbbreezy

 

Welcome to the community! 

 

I moved your other post since it was a duplicate. 

 

I can understand the importance of being able to use your Apple Watch with your service provider. 

 

We would hate to see you go because of this Sad 

 

I assure you that we always aim to offer our customers the best services and products. 

 

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.

Agreed. Fido is Rogers poor (shunned) cousin, it seems. I'm about to buy a Series 4 and and i'm actively thinking about taking my 2 lines elsewhere.

 

Fido SHARES Rogers network  / hardware so why is this an issue other than coming up with billing options?

"Thanks a ton for your patience and understanding"

The entire issue is is that there is no understanding. Nobody understands why the watch isn't being supported.

Re: apple watch series 4

Support, as this is not a technical limitation, it must be a business decision, maybe the lack of demand? It's been three weeks already, not sure this is still considered "shortly" timeframe. 🤔

 

Any way we can show Management that Fido customers want the Apple Watch Series 3/4 LTE? Do we need to call/email/message service reps every few days asking for it? Trying to help here.

Even if they figure there isn't enough demand to stock, sell and market the apple watch, the expenses to support it for people who have bought watches through apple would be very little, hardly an excuse.

I see Rogers now offers the series 4 Smart watch and plans. Does Fido offer this yet? If not is there any plans on offering these services anytime soon?
