Making Your Watch Ready for Texting

To make a watch capable of sending messages, we need to insert a SIM card into it and make it work with your smartphone.

The ones having this feature are costly. So after checking your version, you need to check where is a SIM card slot. If it is back, we need to remove the lid with some flat and sharp objects. After the slot is exposed, then insert a SIM card into it and then put the lid back at it. Now turn on the watch. Remember, you can use either eSIM or nano-SIM in your watch. After turning your watch on, grab your phone. Ensure both your phone and watch are fully charged to avoid any hassle during the process. Now go to the play store and download the app that connects your smartwatch with your smartphone. It can be done by Wi-Fi-direct or by Bluetooth. Once it is connected, it can be used as your smartphone, and you can send text messages with it.
