The refreshed Samsung Galaxy Watch went on sale in September with it offering a new look and improved fitness features.

This wearable is now able to detect up to 40 exercises and will automatically track your daily workouts.

It is also water resistant up to 50 metres, meaning even swimmers can put the new device to good use.

An extended battery life, heart monitoring and sAMOLED display add to the appeal, however, there was one missing feature.

Unlike the 4G connected Apple Watch, Samsung didn’t release a connected version of its wearable at launch.

But that’s about to change.

EE has just announced that Samsung’s Galaxy Watch 4G smartwatch is now available exclusively to pre-order on its network.

This new update means the Watch can access emails, texts, stream music and make calls without the need to be connected to a smartphone.

EE says that Samsung’s first 4G smartwatch can be pre-ordered over the phone, in store or via the EE online shop.

The Galaxy Watch 4G is available on a 24-month plan for £20 per month which comes with unlimited data, as well as a 1GB data boost which is added to your current smartphone data allowance.

The Samsung Galaxy Watch 4G’s eSIM can pair with an EE pay monthly or SIM-only Samsung smartphone, allowing customers to use one number across both their phone and watch.

To take advantage of the new watch’s 4G capability, customers simply need to be on any EE Pay Monthly voice plan and have a compatible Samsung smartphone.

Speaking about the news Sharon Meadows, Director of Devices, Products & Partnerships at EE, said: “Samsung’s Galaxy Watch 4G is the first 4G smartwatch for Android customers which is brought to life by EE’s advanced 4G network.

“Exclusively available on EE, for the first time Samsung customers can now leave their smartphone at home and still take calls and messages using the same number when going for a run or popping out to the shops.”
