If you live in the UK and have been waiting for the 4G-packing version of the Samsung Galaxy Watch, your wait is now over. Well, almost. EE is now letting you pre-order Samsung’s latest smartwatch that will let you message, make calls, stream music all sans smartphone.

As far as the nitty gritty details go, the 4G Galaxy Watch is going to be available on a 24-month plan for £20 per month. That comes with unlimited data and a 1GB data boost for your smartphone data allowance.

The setup uses an eSIM and can be paired with an EE pay monthly or SIM-only Samsung smartphone, letting you have the same one number across both devices. And yes, that does mean you have to own a compatible Samsung phone to get in on the 4G action. You will also need to be on any EE Pay monthly plan as well.

Away from the 4G connectivity, you'll get all of the same features as the non-4G Galaxy Watch models. So it'll be available in two sizes, offer a swimproof design, 4-7 days battery life (depending on what size you go for), Samsung Pay and all of those new health and fitness tracking features.

The arrival of the 4G Galaxy Watch in the UK comes almost two months after the same model was made available in the US courtesy of T-Mobile.

The Galaxy Watch 4G as mentioned, can be pre-ordered now from the EE online shop and in store. It does look like you'll have to wait a couple of weeks before you can pull it out of the box and start living that untethered life though.
