jamesfrmphilly, the Gear 3 is compatible with android devices that have Android 4.4 or higher. You can pair them using the Samsung Gear App.

Re: Samsung Gear S3

Speaking of gear s3, will we ever be getting lte enabled smartwatches? It'd be awesome to have one and finally not pay extra access fee for it.

My Gear S2 is ATT so it will never work on XM unless tethered to my S5, but I would surmise once BYOD is active any Gear watch compatible with Verizon should work just fine.

dicea33, good question. I haven't heard anything about supporting wearables just yet. We will be supporting tablets soon so I'd imagine wearables would possibly follow.

Well, they don't so the best you can do at this point is to buy a Verizon capable S3 and tether it to your phone so it will make and receive calls.  When XM activates BYOD and wearables you can then activate the eSIM in the watch so it functions as a standalone phone on your wrist. Personally I did not like doing this as it really ran the battery down fast on my Gear S2 when I was with att.  The S3 has a slightly bigger battery so that is good.

Also a good idea. I'm using a Moto360 which can't make calls from itself, but it's great for notifications,etc.

Re: Samsung Gear S3

Would ativating the galaxy gear add a line to your current bill or will it be under the same line?
