I've recently bought a SG Watch 3  LTE and have an Honor 10 phone. Everything elae in the setup works fine but when I try and attatch it to the data plan ive got for it, linked to my phone, its not working. It says EE don't do plans for the watch which isnt true. The EE man claimed/guessed it couldn't be linked without a Samsung phone, but I pressumed they'd have to advertise it pretty clearly if the LTE couldn't be done without a Samsung phone so I don't know what to do. Do I need a Samsung phone?

Hi! warning, I don't know ANYTHING about this, but I did look at the terms and conditions:
"Galaxy Watch3 4G connects exclusively on EE* and Vodafone**.
*Standalone voice calling on 4G model requires an EE PAYM voice plan with data subscription to access the ‘One Number’ service. For initial set-up, wireless network and pairing with Samsung Galaxy smartphone 2017 and newer required.
**Available to all Vodafone Pay Monthly Mobile customers on a Red Plan. You will use the allowance from your current PAYM or SIMO plan to call from your Samsung Watch. For initial set-up, wireless network and pairing with an Android smartphone with OS Android 5.0 or newer and at least 1.5GB RAM required."

For EE, it seems that for the initial set up you need a Samsung Galaxy phone from 2017 onwards to set it up first. 😕 And then you should be able to use it on your phone.

However, if you're a Vodafone user, you only need an android phone with android os 5.0 onwards

I cannot fathom why EE would do that?
