Samsung Galaxy Watch - Set Up as a Standalone Device
While used with a standalone plan, the Galaxy Watch will not require an Android™ smartphone or Apple® iPhone® to function after initial activation but does require the phone for certain options (e.g., software updates, email, etc.).
Standalone mode can't be used with NumberShare and provides limited functionality.
Continue to use in conjunction with a companion smartphone for maximum functionality.
