I own a Note 20 Ultra and use an eSim.

 

I'm toying with the idea of buying a smartwatch.  Is it simply a matter of sending / sharing my "eSIM" from one device to another?

 

I would assume if I had my phone with me, the smartwatch would use Bluetooth / WiFi and function as a phone.

 

I'm just curious if I could share / send the eSIM to use the smartwatch as a phone and leave my Note 20 at home.

 

Thanks, DH

if u get a Bluetooth only smart watch then both devices need to be within Bluetooth range for the key features to work.

if u get the LTE / esim variant watch with a esim data plan then if you leave your phone at home you can still get calls, messages and emails etc to your watch.

you need to be with EE, VODA or O2 network (if you're based in the UK, I think they should put location option or a nation flag next to profile pictures to show where people are based) and you may need to pay additional subscription charges on your network account for these remote features to work.

Hi @davehorne 

 

I know in the UK Vodafone UK have a network option called OneNumber where you pay a monthly amount so that your watch uses your contracts allowances.

 

vodafone.co.uk/What-is-Vodafone-OneNumber-and-how-do-I-get-it. 

 

I think your on Vodafone in the Netherlands but obviously I don't know if they have the same options.

 

I pair up my Samsung Frontier Watch via Bluetooth to my N20 Ultra personally.

 

It's not often my phone isn't with me.

Thanks for the reply.  It seems the Dutch Vodafone doesn't have One Number.

 

I'm still in the early stages of this research. 

 

Thanks.

 I have more information that I just learned.

 

It seems here with Vodaphone NL, there's an option to have two SIM cards with the same number for a one time charge of €30.  This however does not apply to eSIM.

 

Of course, with this set up only one device can be used at a time.
