The Google Pixel Watch is one of the best smartwatch options in the market right now. Considering the popularity of the Apple Watch, many people tend to write off Android smartwatch options like this one. However, they are actually some of the most cost-effective ways to enjoy the conveniences that a smartwatch can bring. Here’s what you should know first.
Sometimes, the Pixel watch can be frustrating to use. This is particularly in moments where the Cellular Data stops working, so you’re forced to basically use an ordinary watch. This problem can be traced to a bug in the system, so finding a solution shouldn’t be too difficult.
Troubleshooting Tips for Google Pixel Watch LTE/Cellular Data Not Working Error
Fixing this issue really comes down to trying different things. However, the most important thing to remember is that your carrier is supported in the region where you’re using a Pixel watch. Therefore, checking carrier availability should always be a top priority.
Solution #1 – Check Carrier Availability in your Area
If the carrier is not available in your region, you might quickly run into this problem. It’s a discomforting one to encounter, but it isn’t unsolvable by any means. You can find a list of supported carriers all over the internet, so it’s best to check it out on Google.
Solution #2 – Reset your eSIM Profile
If you’re using an eSIM, there’s a good chance that it might be inactive on your device. If this is the case, you’re going to need to reset it in the hopes of getting it to work again.
- First, ensure that your Google Pixel Watch is fully charged.
- Go to Settings.
- Tap Connectivity and head over to Mobile.
- Under Mobile, select SIM status.
- If you have an existing eSIM profile, you’ll have to reset it.
- Go to Advanced in the Mobile menu.
- Tap Reset eSIM.
Solution #3 – Add a New Line of Service to your Mobile Carrier
Get in touch with your cell carrier if they are approved for your region. Now, you’ll need to ensure that they are able to carry out the following.
- Request for “a new line of service” to your watch through “customer-provided equipment.”
- Now, they will require your IMEI number. You will need to type in *06# and provide the IMEI.
- Your carrier will receive a prompt asking whether or not “number share” should be enabled. They should select Yes.
- At this point, the carrier-based plan will be added, completing your order.
- Go to your Pixel Watch app and attempt to activate your eSIM.
- Tap Mobile Network, and you’ll see a notification stating that the eSIM is currently downloading.
- Once downloaded, your Pixel Watch should be fully activated and ready to use.
