This year at Samsung Unpacked, we saw the Korean OEM add two new wearables to their portfolio of wellness devices, the Galaxy Watch 4 and the Watch 4 Classic. With starting prices of US $ 249 and US $ 349, respectively, these new smartwatches offer a variety of new wellness features, a version of WearOS developed jointly by Samsung and Google, and great value for interested buyers. But for those who want to get more out of their smartwatch and possibly ditch their phone for fitness activities, Samsung is also selling LTE variants with eSIMs. These start at $ 299 for the Watch 4 and $ 399 for the Watch 4 Classic.
You can now purchase these from a variety of retailers, including the Samsung official website, Best Buy, and Amazon, among others.
An eSIM is an embedded component in a device that allows you to connect to a telecommunications network without inserting a physical SIM card. To make standalone calls and send text messages from your Galaxy Watch 4, you must first pair it with a suitable Android phone running Android 6.0 or higher. A separate cellular tariff is also required.
However, Samsung has some warnings, the first of which is to insist on confirming the functionality of such features with your carrier as they may not support them. Second, if the paired phone is turned off or disconnected from a wireless network, standalone functionality will be limited.
The Galaxy Watch 4 has a minimalist design and simple control scheme so you can keep an eye on your health goals and never miss any notifications.
The Galaxy Watch 4 Classic is the device for anyone looking for a traditional, timepiece-like look with all the bells and whistles that make smart wearables.
If eSIMs have piqued your interest, this technology isn’t just limited to Samsung’s smartwatches. It’s also available on their foldable phones, the Galaxy Z Flip 3 and Z Fold 3. The former of the two has received a lot of attention for its $ 999 price tag. So if you want to buy something, don’t skip our compilation of the best deals for it and cases for the smartphone.
