Thanks to eSIM, Galaxy Watch4 LTE and Galaxy Watch4 Classic LTE users will receive calls and messages directly from the device, without being tied to a smartphone. This opportunity will be appreciated by lovers of sports and an active lifestyle. They will be able to answer the call while jogging, cycling and training, leaving their smartphone in a locker or backpack. At the same time, the new device is easy to control using voice commands and a bezel – a touch or mechanical ring on the dial.

The possibilities of the gadget will be appreciated by music lovers. With eSIM and Spotify ™ installed on your device, you can stream your tracks directly from your device over your mobile network.

Compatible apps are automatically installed on your Galaxy Watch4 when you download them to your smartphone. For example, traveling and tracking the route online from the wrist is much more convenient thanks to the improved compass. It works with the Google Maps app when connected to a network using an eSIM. Customers can pay for purchases in the store directly from the Galaxy Watch4, even if they left their smartphone at home or in the car. With the virtual SIM, the users of the new gadget have access to payment services Samsung Pay and Google Pay.

To activate eSIM, a new client must have My Tele2 and Biometrics applications from Rostelecom installed. The subscriber needs to go to the application “My Tele2” and select the option “Become a subscriber of Tele2”, then – eSIM. After choosing the tariff and number, the client will be offered to go through identification in the Unified Biometric System. If there is a registration in this system, identity confirmation through the “Biometrics” application takes only a few seconds. My Tele2 will download the eSIM profile, and the whole registration will take a few minutes. If the client has not submitted biometric data before, the Biometrics application will tell you where to go. Existing Tele2 customers can connect an eSIM to an existing contract.

The advantages of a virtual card are presented on the portal . After receiving the QR code of the virtual SIM, you will need to launch the Galaxy Wearable app on your smartphone, scan the code and set up the Galaxy Watch following the instructions.

Vladimir Pavlov, director of work with subscriber equipment Tele2: “We have accumulated extensive experience in applying the new technology, as we were the first to implement an eSIM pilot. Tele2 is constantly working with vendors and developers of devices using virtual SIM cards. The test results showed that the Galaxy Watch4 LTE works great with our eSIM. I am confident that Tele2 services will complement the user experience of buyers of new devices by independently connecting this gadget to the mobile network. “

In April 2019, Tele2 was the first in the Russian telecom market to launch a pilot project for the implementation of eSIM. The operator’s subscribers became test users of the technology, having received a QR code in the company’s showrooms. Tele2 is GSMA certified to generate eSIM profiles on its own. Since June 2021, Tele2 customers were the first on the market to have the opportunity to connect virtual SIM cards with identification through the Unified Biometric System in the My Tele2 mobile application.
