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

Re: apple watch series 4

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!

Hey @Tookie3k! I hope you're doing well. Smiley

 

Nothing has changed since our first reply on this thread. We do not support the Apple watch at this time.

 

Let us know if you have any further questions on this matter and we'll happily send you a PM. Smiley

Ridiculous. I’ve been with Fido for close to 20 years. This lack of support of new devices has prompted me to start to look elsewhere.

We’d really hate to see you go @Bloodstriker and we always want to offer the latest devices to our customers!

 

As @FidoSaira mentioned, with Apple’s newest releases we’ve focused our efforts on providing our customers with all the new iPhones as they have proven to be quite popular. At this time we do not support the Apple watch but customers can definitely pair it with an iPhone via Bluetooth in order to use it’s most popular features. 

 

If ever you’d like to go over your options for a device, don’t hesitate to reach out and if anything changes regarding support of the cellular version of the Apple Watch we’ll be updating Fido.ca Smiley

This recent announcement should mean a change in this.

Hey @MorriC!

 

We have no news on E-SIM right now. At this time, you can only use a physical SIM card for our services. We'll be sure to update everyone as soon as there are more details to share Smiley

Why doesn’t Fido support Apple Watch? It’s annoying considering that other major networks offer that, including Rogers. It is a good enough reason for people to switch to the competition!

Re: apple watch series 4

So, now that Fido is supporting eSIM provisioning, can we finally see some movement on Apple Watch support?

...or will be waiting for a few more revisions of Apple Watch with cellular support to pass before the policy makers pull their heads out of their .....  (and, yes, we've seen the "big three" restrict AW support to only their flagship brands...if the CRTC ever needed evidence of collusion....I guess they also have the 10GB/$60 price hikes that are being done in unison...not that they'll ever do anything).
