The dream of leaving your home without a telephone, while not losing contact with the outside world, is now a reality. Training, during which you can control not only your heart rate, but also the oxygen saturation of the blood and other indicators of the body, is an everyday situation. We can be thankful to smartwatches which have evolved from slightly improved timepieces into autonomous and very smart devices. The latest models are now able to perform the function of a telephone even when not close. Here we introduce the latest, thinnest, lightest and otherwise stylish smartwatches offered at LMT e-store..

The hottest newcomer – Samsung Galaxy Watch4
The new Watch4 has joined the family of Samsung Galaxy smartwatches. It is stylish and cannot go unnoticed, available with a 40, 42, 44 or 46 mm screen – it gets one extra millimetre in each position. Thanks to Wear OS 3, Watch4 now gives you access to the extremely rich Google Play digital store – find your favourite app and download it on your watch just like on a smartphone.
But that's not all. This smartwatch knows you better than you know yourself. With Galaxy Watch4, don't just listen to your body, but know it! This is the first Samsung smartwatch that measures body composition and helps to find out in real time the percentage of your body fat, musculoskeletal condition, the amount of water and many other valuable parameters. It reports changes in blood pressure and heart rhythm. Count steps, compete with friends via live message boards, get tokens and points that make training fun and motivating. The watch will look after you even when you are asleep: it analyses the sleep phases in detail, checks the oxygen level in the blood and… You think you don’t snore? Finally, you’ll find out that too! In short, it is a fitness essence on the wrist.
Multi-SIM and payment options
eSIM, Multi-SIM, Garmin Pay etc. – what exactly are these extra talents in smartwatches?
Those who want to use both a phone and a smartwatch, but do not want to bother with multiple numbers, were born at the right time – now it is possible to link a phone number with your smartwatch if it supports the Multi-SIM option. Both devices can have the same number, and the smartwatch will not require a separate voice tariff plan and internet service. If you have LMT Freedom and Independence connections, you’ll also have unlimited calls, text messages and the Internet on your smartwatch.
It's easy to connect: if you use the LMT voice tariff plan and your smartwatch supports Multi-SIM, the phone has at least 1.6 GB of free RAM and an updated version of the operating system (iPhone models at least iOS 9.0, Android – at least 6.0 OS), connect the Multi-SIM at your My LMT account or remotely by activating eSIM on the smartwatch. If your phone has only an eSIM (no SIM card), you must insert an active LMT SIM card in your phone when activating the service. If there is no such opportunity, go to the nearest LMT Customer Centre – we will help you!
But let's go one step further! Do you want to go outside leaving at home not only a phone, but also a wallet? No problem! With most Garmin, Fitbit, and Apple smartwatches, you'll be able to pay wherever the contactless payment symbol appears, even if you're leaving home empty-handed. Now you can "carry money" on your watch and pay with a hand gesture! All you must do is to link your payment card with the smartwatch. Such payments are completely secure, as the same security procedures as for bank payment cards are applied. In short, a smartwatch is the key to unlimited freedom!
