Samsung Galaxy Watch LTE comes to Vodafone in Australia with NumberSync support

Last month, Samsung started taking pre-orders for its Galaxy Watch in Australia. Both Bluetooth and LTE variants of the watch were made available, but the latter was available only on selected plans over the Telstra network. Samsung Australia, however, has now taken Vodafone onboard, making it the second carrier in the country to offer the Galaxy Watch LTE.

Galaxy Watch LTE on Vodafone

Vodafone Australia has started selling the newly launched Samsung Galaxy Watch on its network. The carrier has both 42mm (Rose Gold only) and 46mm models of the watch listed on its product landing page, at a price of $599 and $649 respectively. Better yet, Vodafone will also be enabling NumberSync for the Galaxy Watch by Christmas.

For those who are not aware, NumberSync allows you to share the same mobile number (and plans) on your watch and smartphone. You don’t need to get a completely separate SIM for your LTE-enabled smartwatch. Vodafone will charge an extra $5 per month for it, but that’s pretty nominal for the kind of service you’ll be getting. You can make calls and send messages on the go, through the same number even if you leave your phone at home.
Interested buyers can get the Samsung Galaxy Watch LTE on Vodafone in mobile repayment as well. Under the scheme, you get the option to pay off the price of the watch over 12, 24 or 36 months, with no penalty for early payoff.
If you need to recall, the Samsung Galaxy Watch comes in two sizes – 42mm and 46mm – both powered by the same Exynos 9110 1.15GHz Dual core processor. Both the variants feature a Super AMOLED display of 360×360 resolution, protected by Corning Gorilla Glass DX. The MIL-STD-810G (Military Standard) rated watch has a 5 ATM water resistance rating and features an Always On Display.
The Tizen OS-running Samsung smartwatch is compatible with both Android (5.0 or later) and iOS (9.0 or later) smartphones. And most importantly, it can run for up to 5 days on a single, at least that’s what Samsung claims. You can read more about the Samsung Galaxy Watch here.
