O2 does not offer enough data for Galaxy Watches

I just want to communicate to O2 that 1gb is by no means "more than enough data"

 

I plan on running with my watch almost every day and listen to new or different music each time.

 

On top of that, data is used for phone calls.

 

Really I don't want to be stuck in a 3 year contract with not enough data.

 

Why are they like this? Why do apple watches get infinite data and galaxy watches are stuck like this? I'm likely to leave and go to EE as soon as my phone contract is over just because of this.

Because that is what after they have discussed with Samsung and is deemed enough data for their watches.  Also Samsung Watches are a lot more efficient than Apples Bloatware...

Current Phone: Sony XPeria Pro-I and Motorola Razr 5G
I also have a Planet Computers Gemini

I work in IT as an Enterprise Messaging and Collaboration Tools Administrator (Office 365, Slack and much much more) and manage hardware both Mobile and Desktop / laptop, my desk is a bit like PC World

I like the samsung ecosystem, it's nothing to do with them

It's just there is no option on O2 except for 1gb
I'm not certain how many songs or phone calls I can do with that
I'm also more interested in the airtime plans on offer. With EE I can get 10gb for £7, and O2 it's £5 for 1gb.

Unless you are out of range of your phone, the watch will use the phones data.

The watch data is primarily for calls when away from the phone.

I know that, but the idea is I can go for an hour run every other day whilst listening to new spotify music and making calls. Primarily so I don't have to carry around a large S21+ whilst running

 

Does anyone know if you can leave the airtime only plans whenever you want?

The airtime is tied to the device plan so can only be cancelled when the device is fully paid.
