Can the Galaxy Watch 5 BT operate on its own?

Hi, a question I have regarding the Galaxy Watch 5. I'm curious to know whether or not the Galaxy Watch 5 can receive messages and send them; receive calls and make calls, and use functions like maps or Google assistant when the device isn't connected to the phone via Bluetooth? By the way, I'm referring to the Galaxy Watch 5 Bluetooth modal (not LTE version).

If anyone can help with my question I would greatly appreciate it, thanks 😊

HI @Lamzy  Unfortunately not as @Blessed4life  has explained.  That is why the Bluetooth versions are cheaper.  The LTE versions have an esim and you need a Data Plan  for a cellular connection.  The differences detailed here https://smartwatchchart.com/galaxy-watch-5-bluetooth-vs-lte-which-is-right-for-you/ 

I do not work for Samsung or make Samsung Products but provide independent advice and valuable contributions.
