Is it possible to get online with the Apple Watch without using the iPhone?

An IPhone is surely required for a full Internet connection on the Apple Watch of the 1st or 2nd generation. Nevertheless, the device can be quite independent even without it. For example, the smart watch can connect to previously known Wi-Fi networks without a smartphone. However, it doesn’t have GPS, which imposes some restrictions on the device functionality.

What can I do on the Apple Watch without the IPhone?

You can do the following on the Apple Watch without the iPhone:

  • make payments using Apple Pay;
  • use the Passbook system;
  • use the voice assistant;
  • some other applications from the App Store also work without the support of a «senior» fellow.

As a whole, if your IPhone battery has died, you have left it at home or something else has happened to the phone, you can do the following actions with the help of Apple Watch:

  • exchange messages;
  • ask questions to Siri;
  • perform some other actions.

But, unfortunately, it will not be possible to make calls from your smart watch without the iPhone connection.

Integrated LTE module in Apple Watch 3

The third-generation Apple Watch, which was introduced in 2017, has a built-in LTE modem, and it gives the smart watch complete independence from the IPhone when connecting and surfing the Internet.

While this smart watch is modern, it also performs many functions. With this smart watch, you can control your phone more easily. with its conveniences, it is sure to appeal to people in many ways. i recommend this smart watch to you too.
