Samsung Galaxy Gear S

Hi All

 

I've been given a Galaxy Gear S smartwatch. It has its own sim card slot so can be used as a phone. I know it can also be connected via bluetooth to my phone. If I wanted to be able to use the watch independently when its not convenient to carry my phone would I have to swap sim from phone to watch or is there another way of doing this?Don't know

There's a remote forwarding setting in the gear s.
Go to settings, calls, then auto call forwarding.
In that setting you enter you GEAR phone number and when set the gear will then write a call forwarding setting to your phone.
When the phone and gear are now separated, all calls to your phone will divert to the gear.

Yes, to have the same number, or use a payg sim card in it.

I've read somewhere about being able to do 'call forwarding' to the watch but don't understand it to be honest.

You just forward calls to the sim in the watch which will receive calls on your usual number, but if you dial out it will be from the number on the sim.
You can also forward texts if you use an app, but you would need to leave your phone on for this to work.
