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?

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!

Re: apple watch series 4

Hi,

 

I was wondering if there were any updates on the possibility of using the Apple Watch or the Samsung Galaxy Watch in stand alone modes (as Bell has been doing for a while – and Rogers now does with the Apple Watch, both companies offering a 10 dollar smartwatch plan). Yes, I know you can connect the watch via Blue Tooth or WiFi, but I'm interested in having the watch in LTE mode to not have to carry the phone with me. I've talked with customer service a couple of times and there's never a clear answer.

 

Maybe we can get a better idea from someone here regarding this topic?

 

Thank you,

Ok, now that Fido finally has the capability to do eSIM provisioning (ala:  https://www.iphoneincanada.ca/carriers/rogers/fido-esim-iphone-xr-iphone-xs-iphone-xs-max/ )

 

...is there any chance whatsoever that Roger will finally allow Fido to light up Apple Watch plans????

I would suggest that Fido is inept at keeping up with the times and satisfying their customers. And such, will lose them. 

 

So so sad for Fido. 

 Bye bye
